Information on Parkinson's Disease Clinical Studies
For anyone who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, or for anyone who knows someone afflicted, the importance of Parkinson’s research is implicit. There is no known cause or cure for the disease, and the condition is severely degenerative.
Current treatment for Parkinson’s focuses primarily on symptom management. Medications are typically the first step in treatment, once the tremors associated with the disease begin to make day-to-day tasks difficult. If medication is not enough, surgery may be the next recourse.
Parkinson’s patients are also encouraged to make exercise and a healthy diet a part of their treatment plan. Good nutrition and a healthy body can help reduce the impact of certain side effects that may occur when taking Parkinson’s medications.
Parkinson’s Disease Treatment Developments
More information on Parkinson’s disease is emerging every day. While research and studies are still being conducted into medications for treating Parkinson’s, clinical trials are also being conducted on alternative treatment methods, such as magnetic stimulation. Stem cells and Parkinson’s research is also being conducted, as it’s believed that it may be possible to transform stem cells into replacements for the lost dopamine-producing nerves in the brains of Parkinson’s patients.
Along with treatment options, studies are also being conducted into what causes Parkinson’s degeneration of nerve cells in the brain. Factors such as genetics and environmental toxins are being investigated as possible triggers.
