Mon, 26 Jun 2017 00:00:00 PDT

NIH-funded tool may improve clinical trial design and aid in treatment development.

Autoimmunity may have role in Parkinson's disease

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 10:00:00 PDT

Scientists discover that fragments of the alpha-synuclein protein that clogs up dopamine cells in Parkinson's disease trigger an autoimmune response.

Pre-clinical study suggests Parkinson's could start in gut endocrine cells

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Recent research on Parkinson's disease has focused on the gut-brain connection, examining patients' gut bacteria, and even how severing the vagus nerve connecting the stomach and brain might protect...

Statins may raise the risk of Parkinson's disease

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 00:00:00 PDT

New research suggests that rather than protecting against Parkinson's disease, it is possible that the use of statins may increase its risk.

Genetic variants linked to higher BMI may be protective against Parkinson disease

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Genetic variants linked to higher body mass index (BMI) are associated with lower risk of Parkinson disease, according to a study published by Nicholas Wood and colleagues from the University College...

Potential therapeutic target for Parkinson's disease

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 00:00:00 PDT

Investigations by scientists in Japan illustrate how the loss of a key mitochondrial protein facilitates the progression of Parkinson's disease. The findings are published in Nature Communications.
