What is it about?

Human studies of DNA and rRNA sequences are related to Parkinson's disease (PD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). These human findings were compared to results in PD and MSA mouse models. We found that there were similarities between humans and mice and that our drugs improved bacterial pools in some of the aging mice.

Why is it important?

These findings are important because they may identify markers for PD and MSA diagnosis and show that our novel drugs improve mouse bacterial pools in the gut.


I hope this article makes people think deeply about important health concerns that are related to diseases of aging, as people are living longer in all parts of the world ... but longer is not always living better. It is exciting to think that our new drugs have the potential to help cure PD and MSA. Mostly, I hope you will find our work thought-provoking and that we will soon move the drugs to clinical trials.
