Pivotal Study of Focused Ultrasound to Treat Parkinson's Disease

University of Maryland Medical Center/School of Medicine

The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) and the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM)) are leading a phase 3 study to test the safety and efficacy of using MRI-guided focused ultrasound on the brain in order to treat Parkinson’s disease. The pivotal study is the final step before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will consider approving the new technology for widespread use as a nonsurgical treatment option to eliminate key motor symptoms of this common neurological condition.

Experimental Therapy Restores Nerve Insulation Damaged by Disease

Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

When the body attacks its own healthy tissues in an autoimmune disease, peripheral nerve damage handicaps people and causes persistent neuropathic pain when insulation on healing nerves doesn’t fully regenerate. Unfortunately, there are no effective ways to treat the condition. Now scientists describe in Nature Medicine an experimental molecular therapy that restores insulation on peripheral nerves in mice, improves limb function, and results in less observable discomfort.
