Trophic factors, administered systemically or delivered via genetically-modified cells grafted into target regions, have been proposed as putative therapeutic agents in human neurodegenerative disorders. In parallel to the study of the beneficial effects in experimental models of particular diseases, a crucial aspect of the study of trophic factors is the gathering of information about the actual trophic factor expression in human diseased states. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF… CONTINUE READING
