Brain Injection Offers Hope In Parkinson’s Treatment

New comes that a single injection of genes directly into the brain can dramatically reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

It’s reported the new technique can improve walking and dexterity of upwards of 61 percent.
The procedure is based on the genetic material that is injected that turns into a dopamine creating process. Since the symptoms of Parkinson’s is the loss of the brain’s ability to produce dopamine, this new technique can enhance dramatically the improvement of motor skills.

It so far has no serious side effects and although promising, as usual something people need right now is going to take years to make it to general use.

That’s what’s funny about these miracle drugs and treatments. We hear about them but are then told they’ll take years to get approved but they never seem to get approved. However, we see dangerous drugs get approved in a snap which then turn out to do more harm than good.

Someday this process is going to be looked into by lawmakers to make sure things go right.
