Scientific discovery may change treatment of Parkinson Date: March 22, 2017 Source: Turun yliopisto (University of Turku) Summary: When monitoring Parkinson's disease, SPECT imaging of the brain is used for acquiring information on the dopamine activity. A new study shows that the dopamine activity observed in SPECT imaging does not reflect the number of dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra, as previously assumed. full article Mapping the future of precision medicine in Parkinson's disease Date: March 22, 2017 Source: University of Cincinnati Academic Health Center Summary: A new transformative approach to defining, studying and treating Parkinson's disease has been revealed by investigators.

  5. Good day for everybody! Happy to find this forum! My name is Tamara and I am from Moscow, Russia. I,m 50 years old and live with PD diagnosis since january 2012, first sings at jan 2010. I have aquinetic and rigid form , no tremors. I take now pramipexol 0,7 mg + amantadine 1 mg + akineton (holinolitic group) 0,5 mg + macuna pruriens 1 capsule 3 times a day. I,m steel working, drive a car manage my house and take care of my family - 2 sweet sons and hasbend. Rarely exercise now and 4 mounth ago i stoped azilect , since stop azilect feel myself much more better. So that is my small story. Thank you for reading. I have some questions and highly appreciate all answers 1. Is sinemet nowdays best levadopa-carbidopa drug? 2. Is it better to start take levadopa treatment with sinemet or leave it for a future ? 3. Most part of you as i understood from posts are using Sinemet from 6-12 mounth from diagnosis date. Here most of neurologists and PDP prefer to postpone levadopa treatment as long as possible, what is your opinion? I have seen some of you use isradipine in trials - how do you do and do you feel any improvements? Thank you for your support and attention All the best and really sorry for my school English. Have a nice day
