Researchers from the National Autonomous University of Mexico has developed a new method of treatment of Parkinson's disease. Until it was time to try out on rats. The doctors are confident that he will be able to improve the condition of patients by 85% and to return them to normal life. This writes Xinhua.
Scientists have found in the rat brain microscopic implants that carry dopamine, a hormone necessary for patients with Parkinson's disease. It is the deficiency of dopamine causes the development of symptoms. The presence of such microcapsules with the hormone will help to improve the condition of patients, physicians consider.
Once in the brain, dopamine molecules are released evenly. The device operates for a long time. Upon successful completion of further research, the technology will soon reach the phase of clinical trials on human volunteers.
