- Early, late stages of degenerative diseases are distincton November 23, 2020 at 9:10 pm
Biochemists have proposed that degenerative diseases as varied as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and muscle atrophy occur in two distinct phases marked by protein signaling changes that could result in patients responding differently to the same treatment.
- Eye exam could lead to early Parkinson's disease diagnosison November 23, 2020 at 1:53 pm
A simple eye exam combined with powerful artificial intelligence (AI) machine learning technology could provide early detection of Parkinson's disease, according to new research.
- Gut hormone blocks brain cell formation and is linked to Parkinson's dementiaon October 22, 2020 at 10:38 pm
A gut hormone, ghrelin, is a key regulator of new nerve cells in the adult brain, a research team has discovered. It could help pave the way for new drugs to treat dementia in patients with Parkinson's Disease.
- COVID-19 infection may be part of a 'perfect storm' for Parkinson's diseaseon October 22, 2020 at 6:39 pm
Can COVID-19 infection increase the risk of developing Parkinson's disease? That's the question posed by a new commentary that explores three known case studies of people developing Parkinson's-like symptoms in the weeks following infection with SARS-CoV-2.
- Diagnosing Parkinson's disease with skin samples could lead to earlier detectionon October 21, 2020 at 3:23 pm
New research shows a simple skin test can accurately identify Parkinson's disease, which could lead to earlier detection of the disease and better outcomes for patients. Currently, Parkinson's disease is diagnosed by clinical signs and symptoms but only definitively diagnosed at autopsy. The researchers conducted a blinded study of 50 skin samples using an assay originally designed to detect mad cow disease.
