Parkinson's disease is also present in the blood
October 3, 2019
The behaviour of immune cells in the blood is so different in patients with Parkinson's disease that it advocates for a new type of supplementary medicine, which can regulate the immune system and thus inhibit the deterioration of the brain.
These are the perspectives in a new study w...
