  1. Parkinson's Disease Treatment Successful (BBC News - Ghosh)
      Describes a promising treatment for Parkinson's Disease that involves regeneration of damaged portions of the brain. "The treatment involves putting a drug called GDNF (Glial cell line-Derived Neurotrophic Factor) into a mechanical pump, two of which feed it to the most damaged parts of the brain." 5-02

  3. Parkinson's Disease Treatment Successful (Daily News Central)
      "Sufferers of Parkinson's disease were offered new hope last night when it was revealed that an experimental treatment has regrown brain tissue destroyed by the disease." 7-05

  4. Parkinson's Disease Treatment Through Monkey Research (New Scientist)
      The worldís first monkey genetically engineered to have Parkinsonís disease has been created by researchers in Japan, New Scientist can reveal. Other monkeys created as part of the same project mimic Alzheimerís disease and motor neurone disease."

      "The team modified marmosets to have mutated copies of a human gene called SNCA, which is linked to Parkinsonís disease. When this gene is faulty, a protein called alpha-synuclein builds up in the brain, disrupting and then killing the brain cells that make dopamine, a signalling chemical vital for movement."

      "In the three years since the engineered marmosets were born, they developed Parkinsonís symptoms in the same way people do. This began with signs of sleep disturbance in their first year, followed by the appearance of a-synuclein-associated globules, known as Lewy bodies, in their brain stems the next year." 06-16
