Breakthrough in Parkinson’s disease research

MML

There’s been a breakthrough in Parkinson’s disease research.

Scientists in the UK have found a way to detect a molecule linked to the condition in spinal fluid.

The discovery could mean earlier diagnosis and better treatment.

The tests involve examining the stickiness of protein molecules in spinal fluid.

If the molecules are sticky, it’s more likely that Parkinson’s has begun.
