However, no clear role or probable mechanism has been demonstrated. Autoimmune attack of the dopamine neurons could contribute at least in part to Parkinson's disease (PD), according to a recent study undertaken by scientists at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) and the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology.
