Parkinson’s disease is a nervous system disorder that affects movement, causing slowness, stiffness, walking and balance problems, and in later stages, tremors. Over time, patients diagnosed with PD experience a worsening of symptoms.
In the early stages of Parkinson’s, symptoms may be mild and can be easy to miss. These symptoms include:
There are no current treatments that reverse, stop, or slow down the progressive loss of neuron function in patients with Parkinson’s disease. The treatments that do exist treat only the symptoms associated with PD and provide only temporary improvement. These options often become less effective over time.
As a patient diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s disease who has not yet received treatment for PD, your participation in clinical trials could help advance the development of treatment options for this disease. You can make a difference by filling a critical need for study volunteers in these trials.
