Health News - Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's: New molecule can stop neural damage
Researchers from Spain have now identified a molecule that could stop the development of Parkinson's disease and reverse neurodegeneration. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's: Modified protein works like a drug
Scientists have modified the Nurr1 protein so that it could soon be used as a drug to fight off Parkinson's. The protein helps dopamine neurons survive. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's disease: Breath test for early diagnosis steps closer
A sensor array that detects volatile molecules in exhaled breath has potential as a tool for detecting early-stage Parkinson's disease. (Medical News Today)

Contact sports increase Parkinson's disease risk
Contact sports can lead to brain injury, which is why they are associated with dementia. New research explains why they may also increase Parkinson's risk. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's gene affects more people than previously thought
The newly discovered role of the LRRK2 gene may explain all cases of Parkinson’s disease, not just the hereditary ones, as previously believed. (Medical News Today)

Blocking one enzyme could help treat many chronic disorders
New drugs for diverse inflammatory diseases — from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's to cancer and osteoarthritis — may come from the discovery of a new target. (Medical News Today)

Is Parkinson's an autoimmune disease? More evidence emerges
A stem cell study finds that immune T cells kill dopamine cells in people with Parkinson's, supporting the idea that the disease is an autoimmune disorder. (Medical News Today)

Ketamine for Parkinson's? Clinical trial in the works
The most common drug for treating Parkinson's disease can have potentially disabling side effects. Researchers believe these could be relieved by ketamine. (Medical News Today)

Vitamin D offers no protection against Alzheimer's
Systematic review of clinical studies finds no robust evidence that vitamin D protects the brain against diseases such as Alzheimer's, MS, and Parkinson's. (Medical News Today)

Deep brain stimulation 'slows Parkinson's progression'
A recently published study finds that deep brain stimulation, used in early-stage Parkinson's disease, could slow the progression of tremor. (Medical News Today)

Parkinson's may soon be treated with blood pressure drug
New research shows that isradipine protects the neurons that are affected in Parkinson's disease. The findings pave the way for human trials. (Medical News Today)

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)
