    PD Clinical Trial in LA

    My husband has PD. He is participating in a study at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. They need more participants. They are testing the use of Victoza (liraglutide, a diabetes medication) to help slow/stop the progression of the disease. There has been one previous study using a similar drug (Byetta, aka exenetide) that showed a significant improvement in symptoms even after the drug was stopped. My husband injects himself daily with a "pen" needle that is the size of a hair. He says he doesn't feel it at all. He continues to take his PD medication. He joined because there is only a 1-in-3 chance of getting a placebo. If anyone is willing or knows someone willing to participate in this exciting, not to mention promising, research, please contact: Ms. Tina Wu, MS, CCRP Clinical Research Coordinator II, Neurology tina.wux@cshs.org Direct 424-315-2870 Here's more info: https://www.cedars-sinai.edu/Patients/Programs-and-Services/Neurology/Clinical-Trials/Liraglutide-in-Parkinsons-Disease.aspx
