The Involvement of the Gut in Parkinson’s Disease: Hype or Hope?

Amsterdam, NL – There is growing evidence that at least in some patients with Parkinson's disease, the disease may begin in the gut. Writing in an open access special supplement to the Journal of Parkinson's Disease, experts explore the last two decades of research about the gut-brain axis in PD and look ahead at the possible development and impact of these research areas in the next two decades.

Experts Propose Revising the Criteria for Diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease with a View Towards Earlier Treatment and Prevention

Amsterdam, NL – In the past 25 years, it has become clear that some symptoms of Parkinson's disease occur decades before the development of motor symptoms and clinical diagnosis, and that monitoring these emerging symptoms may provide important insights into the origin and development of the disease.

The Search for Environmental Causes of Parkinson's Disease Moves Forward

Amsterdam, NL – Environmental factors are widely believed to play a key role in the development of Parkinson's disease (PD), but little is known about specific environmental triggers. Writing in a supplement to the Journal of Parkinson's Disease, scientists review novel research hypotheses and approaches that may help better define the role of environment in the development of PD, especially before a diagnosis can be made based on the characteristic motor dysfunction for which PD is known.
