Study Reveals a Crucial Feature Common to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's Diseases
Findings suggests that treatment for one disease could work for the other two

The finding also suggests that an effective treatment for one neurodegenerative disease might work for other neurodegenerative diseases as well.
