Diagnostic test for MND a step closer

A diagnostic test for motor neurone disease may be on the horizon, thanks to the work of researchers from the University of Wollongong.

Working on a transgenic mouse model of MND, the researchers found higher copper and zinc concentrations in the spinal cord and muscle of MND mice compared with healthy controls.

Blood from the MND mice also showed subtle differences in their copper isotope ratio.
