Event description

Description

The loss of the brain’s ability to produce dopamine is the cause of Parkinson’s disease.

50 years ago levodopa was developed, which supplies the brain with the missing dopamine. In order to fight not only the symptoms but also the disease itself, to slow down or stop its progression, the mechanisms that bring the production of dopamine to a standstill must be recognised.

Researchers at the University of Dundee have discovered some of these mechanisms and are thus feeding hope for a novel treatment of the causes of Parkinson’s disease.
