  • Simple Blood Test Could Help Predict Progression of Parkinson’s Disease
    “The cumulative incidence of dementia associated with PD is approaching 80%, and individuals with PD are five to six times more likely to develop cognitive impairment than age-matched controls,” explained lead investigator Gabriele Saretzki, PhD, Biosciences Institute, and The Ageing Biology Centre at the Campus for Ageing and Vitality of Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. “PD is known to ... read more

  • Long-Distance Skiers May Have “Motor Reserve” that Can Delay Onset of Parkinson’s Disease
    Studies have shown the enormous benefits of exercise in many disorders including neurodegenerative diseases, but the reasons are not always clear. “Exercise seems to protect against the motor symptoms of PD but not necessarily against the brain damage caused by PD,” explained co-lead investigator Tomas T. Olsson, MD, Department of Neurology, Skåne University Hospital, and Department of Experimental Medical Science, ... read more

  • Globus Pallidus Externus Deep Brain Stimulation Treats Insomnia in a Patient With Parkinson Disease
    Sleep disorders are the second most common complaint in patients with Parkinson disease (PD), affecting up to 78.3% of patients and having severe impact on quality of life. Many patients fail hypnotic therapy or cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. In addition, many pharmacological treatments carry added risks in patients with PD (eg, increased risk of falls). The majority of existing ... read more

  • Researchers discover new piece of the puzzle for Parkinson’s disease
    Biomedical scientists have discovered that a defect in the ATP13A2 gene causes cell death by disrupting the cellular transport of polyamines. When this happens in the part of the brain that controls body movement, it can lead to Parkinson's disease. ... read more
