Brains empowers patients on World Parkinson’s Day event

Post Views: 260 In association with the Basal Ganglia Group, Brains Hospital organised an event on April 7 to educate and empower patients of Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers. Addressing the widely attended event, the founder and Chief Neurosurgeon of Brains Hospitals said that armed with far superior understanding of the disease medical science was […]

'zombie cells' could check Parkinson’s

Purging ‘zombie cells’ could check Parkinson’s

Post Views: 554 A trial has revealed that it may be possible to stave off Parkinson’s disease by flushing out zombie cells from the brain, signalling a fresh approach to treating this incurable neurodegenerative disease that disables and kills thousands of people around the world every year. The new study conducted on mice promises to […]

Parkinson’s disease: Six new genetic risk factors unveiled

Post Views: 298 Scientists have pin-pointed more than two dozen genetic risk factors involved in Parkinson’s disease based on data from over 18,000 patients. Six of these had not been reported previously. Published in Nature Genetics the study, was led by scientists working in NIH laboratories. Andrew Singleton, Ph.D., a scientist at the NIH’s National […]

Exercises benefit Parkinson’s disease patients, scientists prove

Post Views: 269 Analyzing data from nearly 5,000 patients with Parkinson’s disease, scientists at Northwestern Medicine have found that regular exercise leads to better quality of life and slows the rates of decline among Parkinson’s patients. “This study throws up a number of important pointers highly relevant to physicians managing Parkinson’s patientst,” said Tanya Simuni, […]

Electric ‘noise’ treats Parkinson’s symptoms

Post Views: 210 Scientists in Sweden have claimed that a wearable device, which stimulates a sense of balance with electric “noise” could help mitigate the symptoms Parkinson’s disease. A portable pocket-sized balance, stimulation device or vestibular has been developed by the scientists at the University of Gothenburg’s Sahlgrenska Academy in an effort to improve the […]

Study uncovers possible treatment For Parkinson’s disease

Post Views: 242 Researchers at the University of Bath in the UK have experimented with treating Parkinson’s at the molecular level with a specially designed peptide that adheres to malformed proteins known to be responsible for Parkinson’s progression. The process developed by the scientists cap the growth of these damaged protein structures and thereby prevent […]

E coli bacteria may hold key to treating Parkinson’s

Post Views: 347 Scientists have found that the accumulation of potentially toxic amyloids – a hallmark of diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s can be inhibited by a protein in E coli bacteria. Proteins that fold wrongly and group together form Amyloids. Assembly of these amyloids at the wrong place or time they can damage brain […]
