Parkinson’s disease is one of the deadliest problems in Australia, but it seems that Lachlan Thompson and team from Melbourne University has found a solution to this problem.
Researchers have claimed that they found an effective way to treat Parkinson’s disease and that too without any side effects. They have come across stem cells, which could produce dopamine. These are the healthy cells that keep the problem of Parkinson’s disease at bay.
Stem cell research is one of the hot topics of research these days. Thompson said, "We have made some recent progress in that area by identifying novel molecules on the therapeutic cells that allow us to target them and essentially pull them out and purify them”.
Thompson affirmed the recent treatment to be quite risky, as they could give birth to carcinogenic cells. Therefore, they want to devise a treatment, which is not only safe but also ensures that the disease does not returns back or cause any other health problem.
Researchers said Parkinson’s disease is a movement related disorder, but many times it happens that doctors confuse it with other movement related problems. Main problem lies in the fact that treatment for Parkinson’s disease is quite different and strong than other normal movement relate disease.
Cases have been occurred where patient were given Parkinson’s disease medication for at least 14 years, and later it was found that they do were stricken by some other movement related problem.
So, researchers are looking out for better diagnostic methods. So, their treatment could only be given to those, who are troubled with Parkinson’s disease.
Reason of confusion between Parkinson’s disease and the other movement related disease was explained by Dr. Tanya Simuni, Director of Parkinson's Disease & Movement Disorders Studies like this, "The scan is a nuclear medicine scan that is able to track the chemical that is responsible for coordination of movement and loss of the chemical is intrinsic to the development of Parkinson's symptoms”.
