New Drugs May Offer Hope to Parkinson's Patients
Date:3/14/2013

national medical director of the National Parkinson Foundation and director of the University of Florida Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration.

Drugs are already available to treat the problem, and compression stockings are also often recommended. Even so, "having another drug in that arena is going to help a lot of people," he said.

The effects of the other two treatments are more modest, said Okun, who is also a neurology professor. Additional studies will help determine how noteworthy the effects are in real life, he said.

Findings presented at medical meetings should be considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
