Can viruses be created that cross the blood-brain barrier and treat neurological diseases like Parkinson’s? It’s looking more likely that this will be a real possibility.
Accessible designs that make the everyday tasks of those living with Parkinson’s a bit easier.
This Mendelian randomization analysis adds to the evidence of a causal protective effect of high urate levels.
The only hope for helping people with PD today, beyond drugs to reduce symptoms and other forms of temporary relief, is by using very smart computers.
Recently there’s been a buzz about a chemical found in pomegranates that might help people with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. What does the science say?

Reduced sense of smell has a great impact on quality of life of Parkinson’s sufferers, but it also may be used for detecting Parkinson’s early.
Once Parkinson’s progression is stopped, the brain may have the capacity to repair its own neuronal circuitry.
Once a treatment is discovered for stopping Parkinson’s progression, the next step is growing back the neurons, i.e. regenerating neurons.
