Immunotolerance Molecules Show Promise in Mouse Model of PD

Preclinical research supports the potential of small molecules that modulate the immune system to halt Parkinson’s disease (PD) progression and ease motor symptoms. According to a new study, Aeterna Zentari’s autoimmunity-modifying biologicals (AIM Biologicals) were able to induce a state of immunotolerance in a mouse model of Parkinson’s…

AI Platform Shows Potential in Diagnosing Patients at Early Stages

PreciseDx’s artificial intelligence (AI) platform shows an ability to accurately diagnose Parkinson’s disease in people before they develop severely evident symptoms, according to a new study.
