Inflammatory Molecules in Blood May Help Predict Parkinson’s Progression, Study Suggests
Inflammatory molecules called cytokines may be a peripheral biomarker of Parkinson’s progression, especially of its characteristic changes in motor abilities, according to new research using machine learning. The study, “Parkinson’s progression prediction using machine learning and serum cytokines,” appeared in the journal npj Parkinson’s Disease. Besides altered immune responses and distinct populations of immune cells, increased levels of cytokines — ... read more
