Scientists find evidence of link between diesel exhaust, risk of Parkinson's
on May 21, 2020 at 2:21 pm
A new study in zebrafish identified the process by which air pollution can damage brain cells, potentially contributing to Parkinson's disease.
Novel treatment using patient's own cells opens new possibilities to treat Parkinson's disease
on May 13, 2020 at 9:11 pm
Reprogramming a patient's own skin cells to replace cells in the brain that are progressively lost during Parkinson's disease has been shown to be technically feasible.

Parkinson's disease may start in the gut
on April 27, 2020 at 4:51 pm
Researchers have mapped out the cell types behind various brain disorders. The findings offer a roadmap for the development of new therapies to target neurological and psychiatric disorders. One interesting finding was that cells from the gut's nervous system are involved in Parkinson's disease, indicating that the disease may start there.
Autoimmunity plays a role in Parkinson's disease, study suggests
