A growing pool of evidence suggests that high-intensity physical exercise may have beneficial outcomes in PD patients.
 
   Parkinson's Disease and the Gut MicrobiomeParkinson's Disease and the Gut Microbiome
 
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by problems with movement and muscle control. Common signs of PD are tremors, slowed movement, problems with balance, and difficulty walking.
 
   Using Rabbit Monoclonal Antibodies for Key Parkinson’s Disease TargetsUsing Rabbit Monoclonal Antibodies for Key Parkinson’s Disease Targets
 
Rabbit monoclonal antibodies are paving the way in the fight against Parkinson’s disease by accelerating research through targeting key Parkinson’s disease proteins.
 
 VPS35 Gene and Parkinson's Disease
 
VPS35 Gene and Parkinson's DiseaseWhilst Parkinson's disease has no known cause, it has previously been linked to mutations in the VPS35 gene.
 
 
 Parkinson's Compared to Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB)
 
Parkinson's Compared to Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB)Parkinson’s disease is a motor illness that progresses gradually. It affects the dopamine-producing neurons responsible for body movements. Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), on the other hand, is a disease that leads to a progressive decline in mental abilities. Some may mistake the symptoms of DLB with Parkinson’s because of the common symptoms of muscle rigidity and slow movements.
 
 
 Insulin Resistance and Parkinson's Disease
 
Insulin Resistance and Parkinson's DiseaseA growing pool of evidence suggests that Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) may share common pathological mechanisms, and that the presence of T2DM increases the risk of developing PD by 40%.
 
 
 Stem cells transplanted for treatment of Parkinson’s disease
 
Stem cells transplanted for treatment of Parkinson’s diseaseJapanese researchers have last week transplanted stem cells into a patient’s brain as part of an experimental therapy for Parkinson’s disease. The team at Kyoto University used induced Pluripotent Stem (iPS) cells for their procedure. These iPS cells have the capacity to turn into any cell in the body.
 
 
 Parkinson's Disease and Helicobacter Pylori
 
Parkinson's Disease and Helicobacter PyloriHelicobacter pylori is a Gram-negative bacterium commonly found in the gastric epithelium. Infection of the gastrointestinal tract by Helicobacter pylori results in gastritis, peptic ulcer, and gastric cancer.
 
 
 Customizing Genetically Engineered Models for Specific Research Applications
 
Customizing Genetically Engineered Models for Specific Research ApplicationsIn this interview conducted at SfN 2018, Philip Dubé from Taconic Biosciences, goes into detail about genetically engineered models and their importance in understanding neurodegenerative diseases.
