A team of investigators led by William Dauer, MD of University of Michigan has made new discoveries about DYT6 dystonia, which affects children. DYT6 dystonia occurs when the body cannot properly produce a protein called THAP1, whose role and function in cells is unknown. Using a mouse model, Dr. Dauer and colleagues discovered that THAP1 is essential for myelination, a process during brain development that forms a protective coating around neurons.

DMRF and Cure Dystonia Now jointly supported a research investigation to explore whether a drug called AZD1446 could potentially provide relief for dystonia patients with fewer side effects than existing medications. Although AZD1446 did not demonstrate therapeutic effects in animal and cell models of DYT1 dystonia, the investigation produced important findings.

Une équipe de chercheurs dirigée par le Dr William Dauer, de la University of Michigan, a fait de nouvelles découvertes concernant la dystonie DYT6 qui touche les enfants. La dystonie DYT6 survient lorsque le corps ne peut produire de façon appropriée une protéine appelée THAP1, dont le rôle et la fonction dans les cellules ne sont pas connus.
