Parkinson's Disease

Study uncovers possible treatment For Parkinson’s disease

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 them from damaging the brain cells.

Although the study is still way short of paving a possible path for treating the disease its authors are encouraged by the results. This is because it is among a small number of advances that opens the possibility of medication that might actually halt the progression of Parkinson’s rather than simply controlling its symptoms.
