Help us fund research to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s
The Cure Parkinson's Trust is actively committed to overcoming corporate and regulatory barriers to finding and bringing new treatments and therapies to people living with Parkinson's (PD).
Medical research is increasingly focusing on how existing medicines, licensed for use in one condition, can also be used to treat different conditions. Research is promising and indicates that there could be other diseases and patients that could benefit from the use of off-patent medicines. Promising areas include Parkinson’s.
Despite an urgent need for new medications, clinical trials in Parkinson's have a low rate of success. In this section we look at the barriers that interfere with the establishment of effective clinical trials and determine a means of addressing them...
By understanding what matters most to people with Parkinson's, we can shape our campaigns and influences to help create a better research environment so that newer, kinder and more effective treatments can reach patients sooner...
The more we know about how Parkinson’s (PD) progresses, the better we can tailor treatments to people with PD. Also, better measurement of symptoms means more efficient and less expensive ways of testing new treatments in clinical trials...
