Cause of Fatal Childhood Disorder Krabbe Disease Identified

Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have pinpointed the precise cause of Krabbe disease, a neurodegenerative condition that usually causes death by age 3.

On the right is a cross section of a nerve from a mouse with Krabbe disease, which causes the loss of this protective layer of myelin and subsequent nerve destruction.
