Potential benefit of manipulating protein quality control systems in neurodegenerative diseases.

Summary of "Potential benefit of manipulating protein quality control systems in neurodegenerative diseases."

The deposition of proteins of abnormal conformation is one of the major hallmarks of the common neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, frontotemporal dementia, and prion diseases. Protein quality control systems have evolved to protect cells and organisms against the harmful consequences of abnormally folded proteins that are constantly produced in small amounts. Mutations in rare inherited forms of neurodegenerative diseases have provided compelling evidence that failure of protein quality control systems can drive neurodegeneration. With extensive knowledge of these systems, and the notion that protein quality control may decline with age, many laboratories are now focussing on manipulating these evolutionarily optimized defence mechanisms to reduce the protein misfolding burden for therapeutic benefit.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Computer systems capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations.

Approach to improve the quality of care by selectively encouraging or discouraging the use of specific health care services, based on their potential benefit to patients' health, relative to their cost. One element is lowering beneficiary cost sharing or out-of-pocket spending to increase medication adherence.

Review of claims by insurance companies to determine liability and amount of payment for various services. The review may also include determination of eligibility of the claimant or beneficiary or of the provider of the benefit; determination that the benefit is covered or not payable under another policy; or determination that the service was necessary and of reasonable cost and quality.

A system for verifying and maintaining a desired level of quality in a product or process by careful planning, use of proper equipment, continued inspection, and corrective action as required. (Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)

Computer-based systems that enable management to interrogate the computer on an ad hoc basis for various kinds of information in the organization, which predict the effect of potential decisions.
