Is Parkinson’s Disease the Next Pandemic?

According to the Global Burden of Disease study, neurological disorders such as, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease, are the leading cause of disability globally, and the fastest growing neurological disorder is Parkinson’s disease. The study found since 1990, the prevalence rate of Parkinson’s disease has increased 118% to over 6 million people diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.1

Patients with Parkinson’s Disease are Using Boxing Gloves to Fight Back

Boxing gyms around the world are helping patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease fight back. Parkinson’s disease is the second most common type of neurodegenerative disease affecting an estimated 7-10 million people worldwide. The disease is characterized by a progressive loss of muscle control leading to slow movement, rigidity, resting tremor and instability. As symptoms worsen it may be difficult for individuals with Parkinson’s to walk, talk and perform simple tasks.

Earlier Detection Could Mean Earlier Treatment for Patients with Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects dopamine-producing neurons in the brain. The disease is characterized by a progressive loss of muscle control leading to bradykinesia (slow movement), rigidity, resting tremor, and postural instability.  As symptoms worsen, it may be difficult to walk, talk, and perform simple tasks. Non-motor symptoms can include; anxiety, depression, psychosis, and dementia.

By the Year 2030 1.2 Million Americans May be Living with Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system characterized by a progressive loss of muscle control leading to slow movements (bradykinesia), rigidity, resting tremor and postural instability. As symptoms worsen it may be difficult to walk, talk, and perform simple daily tasks. Non-motor symptoms can include; anxiety, depression, psychosis and dementia.

April is Parkinson’s Awareness Month: Large study shows concussions lead to increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease.

The results of a study evaluating more than 300,000 U.S. military veterans showed even a mild a concussion resulting in a loss of consciousness increases the risk of Parkinson’s disease.  Mild traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), commonly referred to as concussions, led to a 56% increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease. The study also showed that when the brain trauma was more severe, the risk of developing Parkinson’s was even higher; for those participants that suffered from a moderate or severe brain injury the increased risk was 83%.

CNN reports at least 700 patients have died after using Parkinson’s drug to treat disease related psychosis

On April 9, CNN reported hundreds of patients have died while taking the drug Nuplazid, a drug meant to control Parkinson’s disease psychosis. According to the CNN story, hundreds of patients have died while a significant number of other patients are not receiving any benefit from the drug.

Does excess calcium in the brain lead to the development of Parkinson’s Disease?

Lewy bodies are abnormal accumulations of protein inside the nerve cells in the brainstem, or in the cortex, of patients with Parkinson’s disease.  Alpha-synuclein protein is one of the critical proteins, that accumulate and become toxic to neurons, playing a central role in the development of Parkinson’s Disease. In the brains of many people with Parkinson’s disease, alpha synuclein has been found to be folded the wrong way, causing them to clump together and form Lewy bodies, which block the exchange of electrical signals altering the release of Dopamine and ultimately leading to cell death.
