Neurodegenerative disorders

Neurodegenerative disorders results from the loss of neurons within the brain and nervous system. Neurons do not reproduce or replace themselves and hence when they die or get damaged, they can’t be replaced by the body. This results in Ataxias or Dementias. Dementias are largely responsible for the global neurological burden and Alzheimer’s disease is the reason for 60-70% of dementia cases. Major neurodegenerative disorders include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s chorea, Prion diseases, Spinocerebellar Ataxia, Hydrocephalus, Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
