very excellent article Bart dude.
Money talks, it also plans, builds, controls. Its like water - an irresistible force of nature. And except for azilect all the big drugs have lost patent so there is no big money to be had without new patents. Its gone from incentive to keep the status quo to a competition to win the big prize - thank god we have a popular disease!
And so many different avenues - I'd never heard of half of them. To me the combination of so many possibilities and the financial incentive is what makes me so hopeful of a 'cure equivalent' set of treatments relatively soon, ie not necessarily a magic bullet but control of symptoms and progression that make having pd into a minor complaint.
thanks again B - sure you couldn't stretch to a full copy?
