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.
Thank you.

Israeli student develops groundbreaking Parkinson’s test

July 12, 2017

A doctoral student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem has developed a new groundbreaking tool that could lead to earlier detection of Parkinson’s disease. Suaad Abd-Elhadi’s “lipid ELISA” test could also improve monitoring of the disease’s progression and a patient’s response to treatment

ELISA stands for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. As a result of his work, Abd-Elhadi received Hebrew University’s Kaye Innovation Award, which was established by British pharmaceutical industrialist Isaac Kaye in 1994.

Parkinson’s is the second-leading degenerative disease among the elderly in the U.S., after Alzheimer’s. Using Abd-Elhadi’s diagnosis technique, Parkinson’s can be detected before symptoms start showing.

“Earlier diagnosis can help by seeing how a given drug affects the progress of the disease,” Abd-Elhadi said, Haaretz reported. JN
