Gene therapy shown to protect and reverse the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease in pre-clinical studies

(Click on the link for the full anouncement)

Researchers at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke's Medical Center, Chicago, and Lausanne, Switzerland, have successfully used gene therapy to reverse the anatomical, cellular changes that occur in the brains of primates with Parkinson's disease. The researchers also report success in preventing the disease from progressing and reversing functional deficits or symptoms associated with the disease in monkeys displaying early signs of Parkinson's disease.
