Motor Neurone Disease Research in Wales20190820

Academic and broadcaster Alice Roberts presents the programme looking at health care development research in Wales.

In this episode, Alice travels to Swansea University to meet experts looking into new developments around motor neurone disease (ALS - Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis).

ALS typically starts with twitching of muscles and ultimately leads to paralysis and respiratory failure. About 5,000 people in the UK have this disease at any given time. There is currently no known cure for the condition.

During her visit, Alice hears what kinds of things scientists are doing to try and understand ALS. They are currently examining the link between cholesterol metabolism, the brain and motor neurone disease and are hoping to develop a new drug to treat the condition.

As well as touring the lab in Swansea, Alice also hears from a patient with the disease.

Episodes two and three of the series look at diabetes and mental health.

Academic and broadcaster Alice Roberts presents the series looking at health care development research in Wales.

It's estimated over 7 per cent of the population of Wales has some form of diabetes and in episode 2 of this second series, Alice meets scientists carrying out research into the impact of the condition which is on the rise across the country.

Alice hears how work at the Diabetes Research Unit Cymru in Swansea involves looking into the prevalence, cause and prevention of Type 2 diabetes and eye disease associated with diabetes. Meanwhile researchers have been trialling new medicines and special technology, including an implantable device to measure blood glucose levels.

Alice gets into the detail of the science of the disease with a tour of the lab at the research unit and also hears from people suffering from diabetes including one man who lost his sight through Type 1 diabetes at the age of 31.
