The main message from this book is that the different protein aggregation processes may all be amenable to a small number of intervention steps based on a common theme of the modulation of production, turnover and deposition of the corresponding disease gene products. The next few years will prove critical in evaluation the possibilities of rational therapeutic strategies towards regaining the loss of function through the amelioration of the abnormal gain of function.
