Scientists: pesticides are responsible for the development of Parkinson's disease

The scientific staff of the Medical Research Institute Sandford-bernam conducted research in which was revealed the specific molecule that is able to protect neurons from the damaging effects of pesticides. Scientists took skin samples from people with Parkinson's disease. Cells were frequently detected mutation associated with protein alpha synuclein. This connection can accumulate in the nerve cells of the person. After that was obtained culture of stem cells that have been reprogrammed. New cells entered into reaction with pesticides. The study showed that mutant cells defective protein (cells of patients with Alzheimer's disease) was developed independently increased amount of free radicals. These education oxidizes the cell membrane, which leads to their death.

Thus, the American scientists were able to recreate the exact model of the disease under the influence of pesticides. Also found substances that can prevent the above-described processes. These include isoxazol. Drugs based on it can help for Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease is a chronic disease that affects primarily the nervous system. The result is struck and killed neurons. This is reflected in the manifestation of certain symptoms. In patients with marked constant forgetfulness, loss of time, speech disturbances, sloppiness. At present unknown pathogenesis and etiology of this disease. It is considered that its development is influenced by genetic, social factors, environmental factors.
