Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place

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 have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
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. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. Please no advertisements.
This is a free site for all.

Phoenix Parkinson's Center To Boost Number Of Clinical Trials

March 2, 2017  By  Bridget Dowd

Barrow Neurological Institute is increasing the number of clinical trials for patients at its Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center in Phoenix. Dr. Holly Shill, the center’s director, says it’s important research studies are open to patients at all stages of the disease.
“We would like to see clinical trials for newly diagnosed people with therapies that might potentially slow progression and then as the disease progresses and becomes more complicated, we would develop therapies and research studies that address those unmet needs,” Shill said.
Shill says she hopes to double the number of patients in studies aimed at slowing the progression of the disease. That could mean several hundred patients would be part of the trials.
Parkinson’s disease is characterized by tremors and restricted movement.  The center has more funding now for studies and outreach.
