New Treatment that Shows Promise in Niemann-Pick Type C Disorder

Niemann-pick type C (NPC) is a rare neurological disorder where harmful levels of lipids (fats) accumulate in the body. Type A is the most serious form of the disorder, with infants succumbing to it by the age of 18 months. The results of an early-stage clinical trial indicate that Cyclodextrin slows the progression of Niemann-Pick type C, a neurological disease with serious consequences.
