The genes whose mutation causes the major neurodegenerative dieases are widely expressed within the nervous system, producing damage not only within the most vulnerable neurons but also within their partner neurons, glia and endothelia. An on mechanism therapy using designer DNA drugs has been developed for sustained gene silencing or altered pre-mRNA splicing throughout the nervous system.
