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.
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.
Scientists observed protein clumping in yeast, caused by a deficiency in zinc, that looks similar to what is seen in Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
Researchers are studying RNA interference because understanding this process has the potential to lead to a cure for Parkinson’s and other diseases.
Researchers feel that creating a therapy for regenerating neurons in people with Parkinson’s disease will involve manipulating this pathway with new drugs.
Do those with early onset Parkinson’s hold out more hope for a cure, whereas older sufferers simply want more comfort?
The same PARK2 mutation that causes some early onset Parkinson’s cases, also leads to greater sensitivity to intracellular bacterial infections.
