Parkinson's Disease

Treatment and Research

Although there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, medicines and surgery can often provide dramatic relief from the symptoms. However, there are limits to the effectiveness of these therapies, and scientists are working to find better ways to treat the disease. Research on Parkinson's disease is very active, and scientists are making great progress in understanding and treating the disease. Recent advances in areas such as genetics, drug therapy, and brain stimulation offer hope that some day it may be possible to cure the disease, delay its onset, or prevent it altogether.
