Early Parkinson’s patients holding up too long to look for restorative assessment

Early Parkinson’s patients holding up too long to look for medicinal evaluation The time among determination and the establishment of symptomatic treatment is basic in the push to discover a solution for Parkinson’s Sickness (PD). A paper distributed in Nature Accomplice Diary: Parkinson’s Ailment notes such a large number of […]

Researchers find an approach to analyze kinds of dread of falling in Parkinson’s patients

Scientists find an approach to analyze kinds of dread of falling in Parkinson’s patients Parkinson’s infection, a dynamic sensory system issue that influences development, causes one of the most astounding dangers of falling among every single neurological condition. Because of this, numerous patients build up a dread of falling (FOF), […]

Optimizing dopaminergic treatment improves non-motor symptoms

Optimizing dopaminergic treatment improves non-motor symptomsNon-motor symptoms are common in late stage Parkinson’s disease (PD) as the frequency and severity of most of these symptoms increase with advancing disease. Optimizing dopaminergic treatment in the most severe stages can affect non-motor symptoms and improve quality of life, report scientists in the […]

ADHD might building up chance of Parkinson’s illness and identical issues

ADHD might building up chance of Parkinson’s illness and identical issues Whilst about 11 p.c of kids (4-17 years previous) national were recognized with attention-deficit hyperactivity dysfunction (ADHD), the long-term well being results of getting ADHD and of not unusual ADHD drugs stays understudied. Researchers at College of Utah Well […]

Improving cell replacement therapy for Parkinson’s disease

Improving cell replacement therapy for Parkinson’s disease Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease that affects dopamine signaling neurons in patients’ brains. Cell-replacement therapy shows some promise as a treatment for Parkinson’s. A recent paper in the journal Molecular & Cellular Proteomics reports a technical advance in selecting cells to use […]

Genetic model offers elegant tool for testing Parkinson’s disease therapies

Genetic model offers elegant tool for testing Parkinson’s disease therapies For the past decade, Parkinson’s disease researchers have relied on the experimental equivalent of using a sledgehammer to tune a guitar to test new therapies for the disease. This may be a reason clinical trials of promising neuroprotective drugs fail. […]

The eyes may have it, an early sign of Parkinson’s disease

The eyes may have it, an early sign of Parkinson’s disease The eyes may be a window to the brain for people with early Parkinson’s disease. People with the disease gradually lose brain cells that produce dopamine, a substance that helps control movement. Now a new study has found that […]

First-of-its-kind Parkinson’s biomarker guidelines invigorates drive for treatments

First-of-its-kind Parkinson’s biomarker guidelines invigorates drive for treatments Parkinson’s disease affects more than 4 million people worldwide, with numbers projected to double in the next few decades. With no known cure, there is a race for treatments to slow or stop the progression of the disease. Key to the research […]

Function of gene mutations linked to neurological diseases identified

Function of gene mutations linked to neurological diseases identifiedSeveral gene mutations have been linked to Parkinson’s disease, but exactly how and where some of them cause their damage has been unclear. A new Yale study, published in┬áthe Journal of Cell Biology, shows that one of the genes whose mutations are […]

Exenatide treatment alleviated symptoms of depression in patients

Exenatide treatment alleviated symptoms of depression in patientsNon-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), such as depression, apathy, cognitive impairment, sleep disorders, and sensory symptoms, can have a greater impact on health-related quality of life than motor deficits. In a post hoc analysis of the exenatide-PD trial results, investigators found that […]
