    Parkinson is a terrible disease, and the price on carers is high.

    There was recently an article in Science about lack of results in terms of effective treatments in humans in Alzheimer research.

    The main message was that when people are old, they have many conditions. So any research that try to target something specific will fail to succeed, merely because brain cells die for one reason or another and there are many.

    Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and more… you are correct Jean-Pierre, it is a challenge for researchers when our (aging) bodies are a “moving target.”

    Yes.  I get Parkinson’s like shaking in my arms, hands and legs.  It is usually while straining to do something or reaching. The neurologist says it’s due to spasticity which I have a lot of.
