    Clinical Research and the Fight Against Parkinson's Disease

    Parkinson’s disease is a slowly progressing brain disorder that affects motor skills, causing tremors, rigidity and slowness of movement. There is no cure for Parkinson’s, which affects an estimated 7 million to 10 million people worldwide. More than 200 new therapies are being studied in clinical trials, and advances in genetics and stem cell therapy offer hope to improve treatment and quality of life for people suffering from this debilitating disease.
