In honor of Parkinson's Awareness Week, we are sharing the new and exciting discoveries in Parkinson's disease treatment. Drs. Han-Lin Chiang and Yih-Ru Wu, leaders in Parkinson's disease research, discuss some of the most promising advancements in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
It has been 200 years since Dr. James Parkinson published the An Essay On the Shaking Palsy describing the signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Despite the fact that there are lots of treatment options out there to ameliorate the patient’s symptoms and to improve their quality of life, we still don’t have any neuroprotective or disease-modifying therapy to slow down disease progression. But for patients with PD, the past few years have never been so hopeful in that new candidate therapies are being developed at a very fast pace.
