Parkinson's Disease Patient's Story Goes Multimedia, Proceeds to Benefit PD Research
Date:4/23/2010

g I want people to take away from this book is that Parkinson’s disease is NOT a death sentence. It’s a LIFE sentence.”

Schmalfeldt said that the book was also meant to highlight the importance of clinical trials in the search for cures, as well as new and better treatments for diseases. In 2007, Schmalfeldt volunteered for a clinical trial at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville to test the safety and tolerabilty of deep brain stimulation in early PD.

“In my clinical trial, we started out with 30 people. Fifteen of us were randomized to the surgical group, 15 were randomized to the control group, meaning they would continue to take their regular medication and then be compared at various intervals with those of us who had the surgery to see if our rates of progression differed,” he said. “The theory this clinical trial is trying to prove is that doing deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery earlier in the course of PD will be beneficial to patients, and may even slow down or reverse the progression of the disease.”

Schmalfeldt noted that the study is currently seeking the funds to expand to medical centers around the country, enrolling hundreds of new Parkinson’s patients. Schmalfeldt said 100 percent of the author proceeds from sale of his book will be donated to the National Parkinson Foundation as well as the Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s DBS Research Fund.
