Clinical Studies

Parkinson’s Disease

Have you or a family member been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease? Do you want to partner in the kind of research that can give your grandchildren greater access to more effective treatment options? We’d love to partner with you.

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It disrupts the central nervous system, causing tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with movement. Clinical trials play a vital role in advancing Parkinson's research. By joining a study, you contribute directly to finding better treatments and potentially even a cure.
