I Ask This Of You!
I have Parkinson's diseases and thought it would be nice to have a place where the contents of updated news is found in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible.
I am not responsible for it's contents. I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish.
This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns.
Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. I will not accept any information about Herbal treatments curing Parkinson's, dementia and etc. It will go into Spam.
This is a free site for all with no advertisements.
Thank you for visiting!

The joint collaboration will focus on biomarkers that may facilitate therapeutic approaches targeting alpha-synuclein, a protein potentially involved in the onset and progression of PD.
MJFF CEO Todd Sherer said: "As more potential therapies come closer to and cross the line to clinical testing - and, in parallel, the number of people with Parkinson's grows as the population ages - the need for Parkinson's biomarkers grows more urgent."
Under the deal, the two parties will support scientific research studies directed toward biomarkers of disease progression and drug efficacy.
Additionally, they will work to identify opportunities where new endpoints or assays may be incorporated into ongoing or future studies.
Prothena president and chief executive officer Dale Schenk said: "We are committed to identifying new insights about the underlying cause and progression of Parkinson's disease and believe that biomarkers clearly defining disease progression may both enhance this understanding and enable more effective, efficient clinical development of disease-modifying therapeutics for patients and families impacted by Parkinson's disease.
"In addition, we believe this collaboration with MJFF will help inform the clinical development strategy for PRX002, a monoclonal antibody for the potential treatment of Parkinson's disease.
"We look forward to reporting results from our ongoing Phase I multiple ascending dose study of PRX002 in patients with Parkinson's disease during the first half of 2016."
