Biomarkers of Disease and Toxicity: Exploiting the Interconnections

Links Between Neurological Disease and Toxicity

Presenter: David Gerhold

Neurological damage may be caused by environmental agents; MPTP serves as an example, where it, as a contaminant in drugs, let users to develop Parkinson-like symptoms. Indeed nervous system toxicities and disease share common modes and pathways, and the combined use of models of neurological damage caused by drugs, toxicants, and disease may move the field forward faster in the identification and use of translational biomarkers.
