  1. 1. Neurotrophic signalling by GDNF and its receptors

    Author : Miles Trupp; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Many investigators have sought a polypeptide which would alleviate the neuronal loss associated with Parkinson's disease--specifically dopaminergic neurons of the ventral mesencephalon. The survival of this population of neurons has been known for some time to be promoted by soluble factors present in the conditioned media of glial cell lines. READ MORE

  2. 2. Imaging neurochemical changes associated with Parkinson´s disease and L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia using mass spectrometry

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD), caused by a loss of midbrain dopamine neurons, is the second most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide after Alzheimer’s disease. The primary treatment choice for PD is L-DOPA, the precursor for dopamine, which only affects symptoms and does not inhibit disease progression. READ MORE
