PARKINSON'S disease symptoms develop slowly over a long time, and could be caused by nerve damage in the brain. One of the more common warning signs of the brain condition includes subtle changes to your voice when you're speaking. These are the hidden signs of Parkinson's you should know about.

Multiple studies implicate heterozygous GBA mutations as a major genetic risk factor for Parkinson's disease (PD); however, the frequency of mutations has never been examined in PD patients from the Irish population. We prospectively recruited 314 unrelated Irish PD patients (UK Brain Bank Criteria) and 96 Irish healthy controls (without any signs or family history of parkinsonism) attending. The Dublin Neurological Institute (DNI). Complete exon GBA Sanger sequencing analysis with flanking intronic regions was performed. The GBA carrier frequency was 8.3% in PD and 3.1% in controls. We identified a number of potentially p...

This week, I’m in conversation with science fiction novelist Marc Nash. Marc has ten Kindle books published and three in paperback. He previously joined me in 2013 with his novel Time after Time. Marc is a fan of words especially as they are the only thing a writer has in his creative palette. We also talk about what happens when books are made into films, especially when that forces fiction into ever increasing numbers of genres. One of the issues we both agreed on was the problem with sub-genres in that they exacerbate the impact of the algorythms that deliver only what people appear to be interested in, instead of...

(Vanderbilt University Medical Center) Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) implanted in early stage Parkinson's disease decreases the risk of disease progression and the need to prescribe multiple drugs to patients simultaneously, according to a five-year outcomes study of 30 patients released in the July 2020, issue of Neurology ® , the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

In Reply LeWitt correctly describes homovanillic acid (HVA) as an unreliable biomarker of Parkinson disease (PD) progression, but our study distinctively evaluated dopamine metabolism in response to nilotinib rather than a biomarker of PD progression, and participants were not taking monoamine oxidase B inhibitors. The hypothesis of this phase 2 study that nilotinib is a disease-modifying drug is based on previous animal data and explored a mix of biomarkers that included dopamine metabolism, α synuclein, and tau proteins. Methodologically, physiologically based population pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics studies sh...
