Mechanism that leads to sporadic Parkinson’s disease identified

Researchers in the Taub Institute at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) have identified a mechanism that appears to underlie the common sporadic (non-familial) form of Parkinson’s disease, the progressive movement disorder. The discovery highlights potential new therapeutic targets for Parkinson’s and could lead to a blood test for the disease. The study, based… Mechanism that leads to sporadic Parkinson’s disease identified   

Novel compound keeps Parkinson’s symptoms at bay in mice

The research, which could one day in the future translate into a therapy that could halt the progression of PD and thereby prevent the symptoms of the disease, appears in ACS’… Novel compound keeps Parkinson’s symptoms at bay in mice
