    Felodipine, an approved blood pressure medication, was able to induce clearance of toxic protein aggregates in a mouse model of Parkinson’s, a study says. Read more about Felodipine here.

    What do you think about this news?

    That’s great news. I am surprised that people are not all over this.

      Plendil is a Calcium Blocker. M J Fox site just announced that a 3 year old phase 3 study of another Calcium Blocker called Isradipine was called off because it was not showing any results. Does that mean that Plendil is now out? Who knows. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.

    Interesting. So a cooperative doctor could prescribe Plendil for us tomorrow, then we could see if it worked. Since it has been approved as safe, we would just have to check the contraindications and drug interactions, and if these were negative, what would we have to lose?

    Is there a cooperativedoctors.org out there?

      I often wonder if there is not enough money to be made for a cure or treatment, would it be something made available to those who suffer?

    And now it’s another treatment with Intranasal Insulin for PD.
