Can Parkinson's be reversed?

Categories : About Parkinson's

Not yet, but this is an area of active research.

Parkinson’s disease develops because of the death of nerve cells in the brain that produce a chemical called dopamine. There are no treatments that slow or prevent the loss of these cells, so currently Parkinson’s disease cannot be reversed. However, research is underway to replace or reprogram these cells with the aim of reversing the major symptoms of the disease. [1,2]
