GDNF for Parkinson’s Disease

On Thursday 28th February the BBC will air a documentary. The Parkinson’s Drug Trial: A Miracle Cure? Filmed over six years it follows a group of volunteers with Parkinson’s as they take part in a groundbreaking medical trial testing GDNF delivered via CED. Forty-two patients undergo complex brain surgery and months of infusions via a port embedded into the side of their head. Can this clinical trial give hope to the estimated 10 million affected by Parkinson’s globally?

Tune in to BBC 2 at 9PM on the 28th for the first of the two part documentary, to find out more!
