  • In the June issue of Experimental Neurology, Nizzardo and colleagues demonstrate that the beta-lactam antibiotic ceftriaxone is neuroprotective in a mouse model of spinal muscular atrophy. Here I review their main findings and the relevance to previous and future work on motor neuron disorders and for developing therapeutic strategies.
