Therapeutics: Galactosylceramidase (GALC)

Neurology INDICATION: Leukodystrophy Mouse studies suggest combining GALC gene therapy, the sphingolipid synthesis inhibitor L-cycloserine and bone marrow transplantation could help treat globoid cell leukodystrophy (Krabbe disease). Krabbe disease is caused by mutations in GALC that lead...
