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. Shaky hands can interfere with everyday activities, and the tremors vary in severity. Neurological conditions, movement disorders, and issues such as anxiety or withdrawal may be responsible for the tremors, and a wide range of treatments are available. Learn more about shaky hands and types of tremor here.
  2. Cell defects and genes have been separately identified in Parkinson's disease. Now, scientists suggest a faulty cell mechanism is the missing link.
  3. Although Parkinson's is a neurological condition, new research finds that levels of bacteria and bacteriophages in the gut might also be important.
  4. A drug activated in the brain using light delivered by implanted optical fiber improved motor function and reduced Parkinson's symptoms in mice.
  5. A Parkinson's study using human cells and a fly model found that a form of vitamin B-3 prevented the death of brain cells by preserving their mitochondria.
  6. A new study finds an association between autoimmune disease and a reduced risk of Parkinson's disease. The link seems to be immune-suppressing drugs.
  7. Deep brain stimulation is used to improve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but it has many limitations. Can an innovative implant avoid the drawbacks?
  8. New research unravels the genetic mechanisms that explain the well-documented link between pesticide exposure and Parkinson's disease.
  9. Formication is the feeling of having insects crawling on or under the skin. This may lead to severe itching that affects a person’s quality of life. Near-constant scratching can also lead to complications, including infection and even sepsis. In this article, we look at the causes of formication and how to treat it.
  10. Having IBD is tied to a 22 percent higher risk of Parkinson's disease, according to a nationwide Danish population study that covered nearly 40 years.
