Youngest MND sufferer in the Highlands is raising awareness

A student nurse from Inverness is helping to raise awareness of Motor Neurone Disease (MND) after becoming the youngest sufferer in the Highlands.

MND is a rapidly progressing terminal illness, which stops signals from the brain reaching the muscles. Sufferers can lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, drink or breathe unaided.

Sheree Gregg , 28, who lives on the Black Isle, was first diagnosed with the terminal illness in March following 16 months of gruelling tests.

Oxford Biodynamics PLC (LON:OBD) was spun out from Oxford University in June 2007 with the aim of translating fundamental scientific advances into a commercialised platform technology and a new generation of biomarkers for cancer and other diseases. OBD has been granted a substantial funding award from Innovate UK to develop and validate diagnostic, prognostic and predictive EpiSwitch™ biomarkers for ALS.
