This is indeed very hopeful. I have faith it's just a matter of time and I will hold on to it being sooner than later.

This is good news that found in drug opiaces the progression of Parkinson's disease because they thus manage to give hope to millions of people suffer from this disease.


This may be the biggest breakthrough in PD since the discovery of L-dopa. Part of PD is accepting disappointment, but this one seems different to me. It is undoubtely a medication that is safe, can penetrate the Blood-Brain barrier, and effects those mechanisms that are implicated in PD. I'd be surprised if it didn't succeed.
Whether it can ultimately stop PD is uncertain, but even if it slows it slightly this would be a tremendous breakthrough.
