Parkinson's disease: Evaluation and therapeutic strategy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A 'designer drug' that touched off a mysterious epidemic of parkinsonism has provided insights into a basic pathologic process of the disease - destruction of dopaminergic neurons. These insights have also helped correlate clinical approaches with biomedical events, opening the way for development of more effective pharmacologic agents for a still relentlessly progressive disorder.
