Pathways to cures: Neurodegenerative diseases in China

Standards of health care are changing rapidly across the globe and probably nowhere more quickly than in China. As treatments improve, survival to old age becomes more common, bringing about a shift from diseases of youth to diseases of old age, including a spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and Huntington's. For this reason, there is some urgency among researchers to gain a better understanding of the etiology and biological basis of these disorders in order to affect preventative measures or even possible cures as well as find ways to improve the quality of life for current and future sufferers. This booklet looks at the current state of neurodegenerative research in China, outlining recent progress in the field and future prospects.
