Regenerating neurons in Parkinson’s disease by activating the Axin pathway

Researchers in Hong Kong have identified a protein, Axin, that plays a key role in the production of neurons. They feel that by manipulating this pathway they can also help people with Autism and will be able to apply this discovery towards regenerating neurons in people with Parkinson’s disease. Unfortunately the researchers feel that any treatment based on this discovery is 10 years away.
