New Mouse Model May Hold Clue for Parkinson's

| by

Dr. Kieran Breen, Director of Research and Development at the Parkinson’s disease Society writes the following about recent progress in Parkinson’s disease research:

 "This new mouse model will tell us more about how Parkinson's develops and spreads throughout the nervous system.

  "This new research also suggests that environmental factors like pesticides could indeed trigger Parkinson's in some people.

  "Refining new animal models is key to understanding Parkinson's, and will be vital in our search for new ways to test drugs that will lead to better treatments and ultimately to a cure."
