Understanding Parkinson's

In Parkinson’s a protein called alpha-synuclein, which is abundant in nerve cells, begins clumping together (or aggregating) and it is believed that this process could be toxic. Cure Parkinson's is investigating how this and other key biochemical pathways and events contribute to the progression of Parkinson's. Thanks to our supporters, we’re funding research into the most promising therapeutic areas.

Parkinson's and diabetes

Results of a large phase 2 clinical trial showed that exenatide, a drug used to treat diabetes, may slow the progression of Parkinson’s. This trial added further evidence to exenatide’s potential as a drug that might interrupt the progression of Parkinson’s; it paved the way for the large phase 3 clinical trial that completes in 2024. Cure Parkinson’s is co-funding two sub-studies in this promising phase of research into exenatide for Parkinson’s.
