Title
(EN) APTAMERS AS A THERAPEUTIC TOOL TO PREVENT PROTEIN AGGREGATION IN NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASE
Abstract
(EN)

The present disclosure relates generally to the selection of DNA aptamers that prevent aggregation, or fibrilization of alpha-synuclein protein. The aptamers described herein are of use as a therapeutic tool to prevent protein aggregation in neurodegenerative disease.
