Health News - Parkinson's Disease

What causes internal vibrations?
Internal vibrations, or internal tremors, are shaking sensations felt inside the body, and a person will often exhibit no visible movement. These tremors are associated with conditions such as Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis. In this article, learn about the causes and treatments of internal vibrations. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's drugs may lead to compulsive behavior
A new study finds that, with time, half of those who take dopamine agonists develop compulsive shopping, eating, gambling, or sexual behaviors. (Medical News Today)

What does it mean if you have shaky hands?
Shaky hands can interfere with everyday activities, and the tremors vary in severity. Neurological conditions, movement disorders, and issues such as anxiety or withdrawal may be responsible for the tremors, and a wide range of treatments are available. Learn more about shaky hands and types of tremor here. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Could this 'missing link' be a cause?
Cell defects and genes have been separately identified in Parkinson's disease. Now, scientists suggest a faulty cell mechanism is the missing link. (Medical News Today)

Is Parkinson's linked to bacteriophages?
Although Parkinson's is a neurological condition, new research finds that levels of bacteria and bacteriophages in the gut might also be important. (Medical News Today)

This 'light-activated' drug could treat Parkinson's
A drug activated in the brain using light delivered by implanted optical fiber improved motor function and reduced Parkinson's symptoms in mice. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Vitamin B-3 may stop brain cell death
A Parkinson's study using human cells and a fly model found that a form of vitamin B-3 prevented the death of brain cells by preserving their mitochondria. (Medical News Today)

Immunosuppressants may reduce Parkinson's risk
A new study finds an association between autoimmune disease and a reduced risk of Parkinson's disease. The link seems to be immune-suppressing drugs. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: 'Adaptive' brain implant may improve therapy
Deep brain stimulation is used to improve the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but it has many limitations. Can an innovative implant avoid the drawbacks? (Medical News Today)

Why pesticides may cause Parkinson's in some people
New research unravels the genetic mechanisms that explain the well-documented link between pesticide exposure and Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

What is formication?
Formication is the feeling of having insects crawling on or under the skin. This may lead to severe itching that affects a person’s quality of life. Near-constant scratching can also lead to complications, including infection and even sepsis. In this article, we look at the causes of formication and how to treat it. (Medical News Today)

Inflammatory bowel disease may raise Parkinson's risk
Having IBD is tied to a 22 percent higher risk of Parkinson's disease, according to a nationwide Danish population study that covered nearly 40 years. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's, dementia: Is this the key to preventive therapy?
A landmark study sheds light on the underlying mechanisms that impact neural health in Parkinson's disease and dementia. Can it lead to better treatments? (Medical News Today)

Could eating fish stave off Parkinson's disease?
We know that eating fish protects brain health. A new study identifies the protein responsible for this and explains how it fights 'Parkinson's protein.' (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Targeting new compound slows disease in rats
The results of a decade-long study are in: a new therapeutic target is found, and scientists manage to slow the progression of the disease in animals. (Medical News Today)

ALS: How 'toxic' proteins could protect neurons
Researchers have found that large, fibrous aggregates thought to drive Lou Gehrig's disease might actually help to protect motor neurons. (Medical News Today)

What causes your lip to twitch?
A look at lip twitching, a complaint causing involuntary movement. Included is detail on the role caffeine intoxication plays and when to see a doctor. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's disease: Why do brain cells die?
A new study has shown that a mitochondrial molecule called cardiolipin helps to correctly fold alpha-synuclein protein, whose incorrectly folded forms are found in Lewy bodies. (Medical News Today)

Could your tears help to diagnose Parkinson's?
A new study suggests that checking alpha-synuclein levels in tear samples may serve as a noninvasive test for Parkinson's disease before symptoms appear. (Medical News Today)

'Too much' brain calcium may cause Parkinson's
Calcium may affect how alpha-synuclein — a protein linked to Parkinson's — interacts with structures important for chemical signaling between brain cells. (Medical News Today)

Could an existing drug halt Parkinson's disease?
A new Parkinson's study suggests that drugs for treating a rare genetic disorder may be effective in targeting toxic alpha-synuclein clusters in neurons. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's disease: Boosting dopamine promotes movement
A study with insights for Parkinson's finds that the brain uses a burst of dopamine, not a steady level, to initiate movement and maintain its vigor. (Medical News Today)

Dopamine deficiency: What you need to know
A dopamine deficiency is linked to several health conditions, including Parkinson's disease and depression. Learn more about the symptoms. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: How a 'bad' enzyme might protect the brain
Reduced levels of a mitochondrial enzyme were previously thought to destroy neurons in Parkinson's disease. The opposite may, in fact, be the case. (Medical News Today)

What is Parkinsonism?
Parkinsonism is a condition that causes some symptoms of Parkinson’s disease alongside those of another disorder. We also look at diagnosis and treatment. (Medical News Today)
