Living Near Highways Linked To Higher Dementia Risk

Toronto: Researchers have revealed that living near major roads or highways is linked to higher incidence of dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and multiple sclerosis (MS). For the findings, published in the journal Environmental Health, researchers from the University of British Columbia analysed data for 678,000 adults in Metro Vancouver. They found that living less […]

Coffee compounds can help combat Parkinson's: Study

New York: Combining two compounds found in coffee can act as therapeutic against Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementia — the two progressive and currently incurable diseases associated with brain degeneration, say researchers. The study, led by a team from the Rutgers University, found that caffeine, which traditionally has been credited as coffee’s special protective […]

New therapy for Parkinson's disease shows promise

Sydney: Researchers have developed a new therapy using a molecule that has been found to stop the development of Parkinson’s disease in several animal models. The therapy is based on the MCC950 molecule and the researchers hope to carry out human clinical trials of drugs based on this molecule by 2020. The molecule works by […]

Your eyes can predict risk of Parkinson's disease

Seoul: The thinning of retina — the lining of nerve cells in the back of the eye — could be linked to Parkinson’s disease, a finding that can boost diagnoses to detect the disease in its earliest stages, researchers have found. According to the study, the thinning of the retina is linked to the loss […]

Study shows exercise can slow Parkinson's disease

New York: Exercise can stop accumulation of a harmful protein which is believed to play a central role in the brain cell death associated with Parkinson’s disease, new research has found. Engaging in exercise on a running wheel can stop the accumulation of the neuronal protein alpha-synuclein in brain cells, showed the study published in […]

Restless sleep may up risk of Parkinson's in men

London: Do you lack a restful sleep and are in the habit of hitting or kicking in your sleep? Beware, according to a study, this could be a sign of a disorder associated with Parkinson’s disease, especially in men. The rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder or RBD, which most often affects persons aged 50-70, […]

Parkinson's drug shows hope for cancer treatment

New York: A drug used in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease has displayed significant anti-cancer effects in both human cell lines and mice, an advance that could lead the way to the drug being re-purposed as an anti-cancer medication, researchers say. The drug — carbidopa — may also explain the low incidence of many cancers […]
