New Drug for Better Symptom Relief for Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is caused due to the depletion of neurons in the part of the brain called the substantia nigra. This part of the brain is associated with control of movement. When the neurons here die, so is the chemical they produce, called dopamine. Loss of dopamine leads to loss of movement. A new drug compound, D-512, may be able to limit the progression of Parkinson's and also relieve its symptoms when compared to the other currently available drugs.
