Research offers clues to Parkinson’s disease causes and potential drug target


Date: 13/08/2015


A stage-by-stage picture of a key cellular mechanism associated with the development of Parkinson’s Disease has been captured for the first time by a research team led by the University of Dundee. 

The findings give further understanding of the possible causes of Parkinson’s disease and offer potential for multiple targets for therapeutics to be developed. 

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder with severe motor and non-motor symptoms. There are several genes associated with PD, with autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinsonism (ARJP) being the most prevalent inherited form of the disease.
