Synopsis

Parkinson's Disease by Natalie Goldstein

When actor Michael J. Fox revealed to television audiences that he suffers from Parkinson's disease, he put a celebrity face on a debilitating disease that causes uncontrollable muscle tremors and rigidity of movement and often affects people later in life. Parkinson's Disease reviews the history, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of this chronic, progressive neurological disease. Discussing research into the possible genetic cause of Parkinson's, this title also covers the exciting new treatments (or possible cure) that scientists are currently developing and testing.
