Parkinson’s disease UPSC NOTE

 Why in news 

  • Using genetic data it is possible to test for types of dysfunction in the cell that are hallmarks of the Parkinson’s disease. 

  • This will help identify environmental factors that influence the risk of developing it

Parkinson’s disease

  • It is a neurodegenerative movement disorder that progresses relentlessly

  • It gradually impairs a person’s ability to function until they ultimately become immobile and often develop dementia

  • There is currently no treatment to slow or halt Parkinson’s disease

  • Available drugs don’t slow disease progression and can treat only certain symptoms. 

  • Medications that work early in the disease, however, generally become ineffective over the years, necessitating increased doses that can lead to disabling side effects.

  • Many factors may contribute to the development of Parkinson’s, both environmental and genetic. 

  • Most cases of Parkinson’s aren’t inherited but sporadic
