New non-invasive method could improve Parkinson’s treatment

Washington:A new, non-invasive method to track the progression of Parkinson’s disease could help evaluate experimental treatments to slow or stop the progression of the disease, scientists say. Researchers from the University of Florida (UF) in the US used functional magnetic resonance imaging to show areas where Parkinson’s disease and related conditions cause progressive decline in

Simple brain scan could help improve Parkinson’s treatment

New York: Researchers have discovered that tracking changes in five brain areas linked to movement and balance with a simple non-invasive imaging technique could help evaluate experimental treatment to slow or stop the progress of Parkinson’s. The researchers used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to reveal areas where Parkinson’s disease and related conditions cause progressive decline

New biomarker for Parkinson’s disease found in urine

New York: Researchers have discovered that a protein in urine samples correlates with the presence and severity of Parkinson’s disease. The biomarker may act as a possible guide for future clinical treatments and a monitor of the efficacy of potential new Parkinson’s drugs in real time during treatment. “Nobody thought we’d be able to measure

Nutritional supplement could improve Parkinson’s treatment

New York: Oral nutritional supplement of a natural molecule has been found to benefit patients in a preliminary clinical trial for Parkinson’s disease, researchers have reported. In the study, researchers found that administration of the natural molecule, n-acetylcysteine (NAC), with strong antioxidant effects, improved the patient’s mental and physical abilities. “This study reveals a potentially
