Artificial prion capable of ending brain disease.

Artificial prion capable of ending brain disease.

 

Brain diseases are one of the leading causes of deaths in the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) states that this is due to the high levels of stress that citizens of all continents face, increasing their risks to get difficulties in their brains and cognitive abilities.

Scientific evolution has allowed the invention of artificial organisms that can replace or improve the biological ones, through identical structures that manage to fulfil the same functions In the human body.  However, the advances for cerebral junctures had taken more time, unlike the rest, because of their wide complexity.

Artificial prion capable of ending brain disease.

 

Recently a group specializing in molecular  biology, they managed to create an infectious protein (prion) capable of destroying the accumulation of proteins in the membranes and tissues that generate considerable damage to the brain. The prion protein was formed with part of the PrP With the same DNA from the “Escherichia Coli“(bacterium).

When this type of protein develops naturally in the tissues of the brain, it not only helps to the optimal regeneration of nervous tissues, but also increases the possibilities of new illnesses to healthy patients, whose treatments applied up to date, there have not been able to give effective answers. The creation of this prion will allow the study in depth of its behavior in different situations that  will give the step to new drugs that can eradicate diseases derived as  Creutzfeldt-Jakob (CJD).
