Scientists believe they have discovered that Parkinson’s disease is caused in a different way than previously thought and also a possible new way of treating the severely debilitating condition. Charity Parkinson's UK said the research could lead to a new drug that could "slow or stop the condition in its tracks". It was believed Parkinson’s occurs when mitochondria – which supply power to cells – malfunctioned, causing brain cells that produce the key hormone dopamine to die.
Researchers have used a non-invasive method of observing how the process leading to Parkinson’s disease takes place at the nanoscale, and identified the point in the process at which proteins in the brain become toxic, eventually leading to the death of brain cells.
Hanson Zandi's insight:
Research conducted by scientists at the University of Cambridge reveal new details concerning protein toxicity in Parkinson's.
A five-year study by an international team led from the University of Leicester has found a way of 'reversing' symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's - using fruit flies as test subjects.
New model of primary care is offering access to services via the web, phone or app to a population of 60,000, writes Robin Vickers
Hanson Zandi's insight:
Better use of digital healthcare would create a dynamic new primary care model and help improve people's access to healthcare. But while some GPs are pioneering new digital methods, the industry as a whole is being left behind. #patientchampions #ehealth #mobile
