What is the reason behind neuroinflammation involved in the development of neurodegenerative diseases like
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Multiple sclerosis and Epilepsy? Could a family of
superoxide-generating enzymes called NOX be a key mediator? How can the answer to the above question be used for
developing an efficient cure to these diseases?
A consortium of European researchers in the field of neurology and disease pathology, the EC funded Neurinox
consortium coordinated by the University of Geneva, has invested several years of research to find the answer to
On 23-24 September 2015 at the Molecular Biotechnology Centre in Torino, Italy, the Neurinox consortium organises
a symposium where not only its findings will be presented; it will also be the unique opportunity to find
out more about the diseases, current treatment options and the latest state-of-the-art research in the
understanding of underlying mechanisms and development of efficient treatment options. The symposium
addresses all types of stakeholders in the field, including patients, patients associations, the general public,
pharmaceutical industry, scientists and biotechnology companies.
