While perusing the curehunter.com database, I found a new article to be published this July, written by Stanford's own Christian Guilleminault, Mia Zaharna, and Alex Dimitriu.
The reasons that I find it sooo interesting is that it describes Narcolepsy as a neurodegenerative disorder, instead of the usually described neurological disorder. Also, there are some new treatment options that they mention that I had not heard of yet connected to Narcolepsy. The abstract states:
Have any of you heard of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) therapy?
You can access the abstract by clicking here. Please let me know if you have any insight into this abstract or any comments would be appreciated. It seems to me that it is a pretty important step in introducing some optional treatments for Narcolepsy.
And by the way, it is just me, or is it a new thing to describe Narcolepsy as a "neurodegenerative" disorder?
