A new robotic system called OSCANN Desk has been developed by researchers at Spain’s Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and start-up AURA Innotive Robotics. The system has been designed for the accurate analysis of eye movements in order to detect neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.
With a view of gathering mHealth data through a wearable from over 800 people with Parkinson’s disease, a project has been unveiled by the Michael J Fox Foundation which has been doing pioneering work in Parkinson’s disease.
Capturing a patient’s experience outside the doctor’s office has been an ongoing struggle when it comes to treating Parkinson’s disease. But now a new smartphone app can now detect the severity of symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s disease remotely, according to a recent study published by JAMA.
Until very recently, Parkinson's had been thought a disease that starts in the brain, destroying motion centers and resulting in the tremors and loss of movement. New research published this week in the journal Brain, shows the most common Parkinson's gene mutation may change how immune cells react to generic infections like colds, which in turn trigger the inflammatory reaction in the brain that causes Parkinson's. The research offers a new understanding of Parkinson's disease.
Prevail Therapeutics, Inc. (Prevail), a biotechnology company developing gene therapies for patients with Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, today announced a $75 million Series A financing.
