The Potential For Disease-Modifying Therapies In Parkinson’s Disease

Presented by

Andreas Schreiner and Barry Dussault

About this talk

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that strikes its victims in the prime of their lives. Most available treatments have remained largely unchanged for years, with Levodopa the “gold standard” for treating Parkinson’s disease for nearly 50 years, with only marginal advances in improving the drug’s efficacy. It also only targets the symptoms, not the underlying cause of the disease. This webcast will explore the definition of disease modification and what it means in Parkinson’s disease and to patients with Parkinson’s, why previous attempts at disease modification have failed, some of the targets for renewed attempts at disease-modifying treatments, and the challenges (and benefits) of conducting clinical trials that target disease modification.
