Steven Gill - Professor of Neurosurgery, GDNF study

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) has been supporting the GDNF programme since 2005. The development of the pioneering Convection Enhanced Delivery System (CED) was funded by CPT in 2008.  This has been featured in the BBC2 documentary The Parkinson's Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure?

The complete results of the GDNF trial revealed some important insights and CPT is working closely with the lead investigators to map the next steps in the development of this vitally important programme of research. 

We need your help.  Please donate to support the next phase of this trial**

“Tom was absolutely central to making all this happen. When he walked around the UK and focused on this drug – that’s what got us here. Without him, there is no question, we wouldn’t be here.”

** As the next stage of GDNF is in development, your donation will be held as a designated reserve until we are in a position to allocate funds to a future GDNF trial or, if no funds are allocated to a GDNF trial, we may allocate your donation to other CPT-approved research into a cure for Parkinson’s.
