Common Disease Mechanisms Found Between Type of Batten Disease and Form of Adult Dementia

Researchers have found common disease mechanisms between a type of Batten disease and a form of adult neurodegenerative disease. The study, “Individuals with progranulin haploinsufficiency exhibit features of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis,” was published in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Batten disease, or neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses (NCLs), is the…
