What has happened in recent months to bring us closer to a cure?

There is increasing evidence that inflammation and the immune system might have contributory roles in the development and progression of Parkinson’s. Dr Williams-Gray’s team at the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Parkinson-Plus are therefore conducting a clinical trial of azathioprine (AZA-PD), a medication already used to treat inflammation by dampening down the immune system’s response, with the aim of slowing brain cell damage and slowing the progression of Parkinson’s.
