Russia develops new medicine for Parkinsons disease

Russian scientists claimed to have successfully tested a medicine which could be a breakthrough in treating patients of Parkinson’s disease.

“We have synthesised a compound which completely removes all symptoms of Parkinsons disease in animals,” said Konstantin Volcho, a spokesman of Vorozhtsov Institute of Organic Chemistry in the southwestern Siberian city of Novosibirsk.

He said the tests conducted on animals with Parkinsons disease demonstrated that the medicine returns all parameters back to normal and does not require additional medication.

It has also been proven by long-term experiments, he added.

The scientists believe the clinical trials of the drug could take at least two years, after which it will be tested on humans.

Researchers have already filed a patent application for the compound.

Though the medicine will not cure the patients completely but it allows patients to live a normal, healthy life for a longer period, the institute spokesman said.

Currently there is no cure for Parkinsons disease, the main target of PD treatment is to give patients the maximum quality of life for as long as possible, he said.
