Evaluating research of potentially disease modifying agents

Recommended Posts

What sources can you recommend for those interested in following the results of research into potentially disease modifying treatments for PD? For example, I would like to keep current with the latest studies on agents such as Creatine, Caffeine, Cogane, Nicotine,and Preladenant. I am interested in reading summaries both in the lay press as well as professional literature.


One agent that recently caught my attention was GM1 ganglioside. I find some references to positive test results going back as far as 1995 with this agent. There is also a 2002 study that finds increasing anti-GM1 antibodies in patients with tremor-dominant PD. I have this form of the disease, so this agent may be of particular interest to me.

There are a few places to check.


For published literature look at pubmed.org and type the search term for your compound of interest.


For abstracts published and presented at meetings it is best to use google or a search engine.


For compounds in trial try clinical trials.gov
