Parkinson’s disease symptoms: What to look for in your face - sign linked to condition

PARKINSON ’S disease symptoms usually develop gradually and appear mild in the early stages. They mostly affect a person’s physical movement, and that being said, there’s one sign in the face to look out for.

This study showed that potential vicious cycles underlying ARDs are quite diverse and unique, triggered by diverse and unique factors that do not usually progress with age, thus casting doubts on the possibility of discovering the single molecular cause of aging and developing the single anti-aging pill. Rather, each disease appears to require an individual approach. However, it still cannot be excluded that some or all of these cycles are triggered by fundamental processes of aging, such as chronic inflammation or accumulation of senescent cells. Nevertheless, experimental data showing clear cause and effect relationships...

Conclusions: The mechanism of this adverse effect is unknown, but we speculate that this effect may be potentially mediated by the effect of β3 adrenergic receptor agonism on skeletal muscle, in this case in a patient with pre-existing neuromuscular disease. Careful assessment of patients who develop shortness of breath while on mirabegron should include an assessment for restrictive lung disease secondary neuromuscular dysfunction. Additional study is needed of the effects of β3 agonism on skeletal muscle.

(Natural News) Almost everyone knows what it feels like to trip and fall. Falling is painful and damaging, especially to individuals living with Parkinson’s disease. Medical experts suggest motor rehabilitation, but this has been seen to be ineffective. Fortunately, a new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) sheds light on how physical therapy, combined with virtual reality, lowers the incidence...

In this study, we used Parkinson's disease (PD) as an example to elucidate how the latest computerized technologies can improve the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases. Dopaminergic medication and deep brain stimulation remain the most effective interventions for treating PD. Subjective scales, such as the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale and the Hoehn and Yahr stage, are still the most widely used assessments. Wearable sensors, virtual reality, augmented reality, and robot assistant systems are increasingly being used for evaluation of patients with PD. The use of such computerized technologies can re...

Authors: Sebastián-Pérez V, Martínez MJ, Gil C, Campillo NE, Martínez A, Ponzoni I Abstract Parkinson's disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative illnesses in older persons and the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) is an auspicious target for its pharmacological treatment. In this work, quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models for identification of putative inhibitors of LRRK2 protein are developed by using an in-house chemical library and several machine learning techniques. The methodology applied in this paper has two steps: first, alternative subsets of...
