Parkinson's disease is a condition in which an area of the brain becomes progressively damaged over several years. The main signs of Parkinson's disease are tremor, slow movement, stiff and inflexible muscles. There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s disease. However, treatments are available to help reduce symptoms and maintain quality of life for as long as possible.
  1. Researchers from Spain have now identified a molecule that could stop the development of Parkinson's disease and reverse neurodegeneration.
  2. Scientists have modified the Nurr1 protein so that it could soon be used as a drug to fight off Parkinson's. The protein helps dopamine neurons survive.
  3. A sensor array that detects volatile molecules in exhaled breath has potential as a tool for detecting early-stage Parkinson's disease.
  4. Contact sports can lead to brain injury, which is why they are associated with dementia. New research explains why they may also increase Parkinson's risk.
  5. The newly discovered role of the LRRK2 gene may explain all cases of Parkinson’s disease, not just the hereditary ones, as previously believed.
  6. New drugs for diverse inflammatory diseases — from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's to cancer and osteoarthritis — may come from the discovery of a new target.
  7. A stem cell study finds that immune T cells kill dopamine cells in people with Parkinson's, supporting the idea that the disease is an autoimmune disorder.
  8. The most common drug for treating Parkinson's disease can have potentially disabling side effects. Researchers believe these could be relieved by ketamine.
  9. Systematic review of clinical studies finds no robust evidence that vitamin D protects the brain against diseases such as Alzheimer's, MS, and Parkinson's.
  10. A recently published study finds that deep brain stimulation, used in early-stage Parkinson's disease, could slow the progression of tremor.
