Parkinson’s Disease Study
Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disease that attacks the part of the brain that handles motor functions (ie: movement and posture). Many of the early symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease are shaking, muscle tremors, having difficulty walking, and an overall slowing of movement. As Parkinson’s progresses, emotional and cognitive changes can occur like depression, anxiety, and dementia. Most people are diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in their 60’s, with some rare early onset cases occurring in people prior to age 50. Parkinson’s Disease does not have a cure at this time, but treatments are being developed to slow its progression and eliminate some of the symptoms. Here at New England Institute for Clinical Research, we are working to bring these treatments to patients suffering with this disease.
At this time, we are currently enrolling for a biological sample study. This study is looking to collect blood and other biological samples from people with multiple forms of Parkinson’s disease in order to research targeted medicine. The hope of this study is that the samples collected will help researchers find and target new unique genetic factors that may cause or make this disease worse.
