Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disorder associated with a number of motor, cognitive and psychomotor symptoms. Medication is primarily used as the current treatment to modify neurotransmitters and treat symptoms. The gold standard for PD treatment is dopamine replacement therapy with levodopa. Nevertheless, the treatment for PD is aimed at improving symptoms and cannot slow the progression of the disease. New laboratory medicine research, translation medicinal research, and preclinical studies are providing new directions for treating this disease. The understanding of the mechanism of PD and the development of treatments that influence the fundamental pathology of the condition are advancing.

This Special Issue aims to assemble high-quality original articles and reviews on the current treatments and recent therapeutic developments in PD and related disorders.
