Recent Findings Suggest that Mitochondria Play an Important Role in Neurodegenerative Disease

Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell because they generate the energy required for cells to survive. It has been proposed that mitochondrial dysfunction might contribute to neuronal death and disease progression in diseases such as ALS. Trophos SA initiated the MitoTarget Project to determine if mitochondria do contribute to neurodegeneration. The conclusions from the study clearly show that mitochondrial dysfunction has a direct role in neuronal death and the progression of neurodegenerative diseases.
