A promising vaccin that I checked last week. I read they were doing some clinical tests. But I couldn't find results so I contacted MJFF. The results of the trials:

I don't know how to interpret this, nor do I know when they are going to vaccinate people with PD to verify whether it stops or slows down the disease.

very interesting. not that long ago it was thought that the brain was separated from the peripheral immune system but now it seems its not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immune_privilege
i presume the big danger is that by closing down the immune response there is a chance of other infections?
still, very interesting indeed
