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. Mouse study shows that focused ultrasound and injected microbubbles can help curb early Parkinson's disease by allowing drugs to access the brain.
  2. Researchers from Japan have tested a new gene therapy against Parkinson's disease using mouse models. Their results suggest that the approach is effective.
  3. A recent study concludes that experiencing bipolar disorder during adulthood increases the risk of developing Parkinson’s disease later in life.
