Harnessing AI for Parkinson’s Research by Krishna Knabe, January 14, 2019 Last week at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), one of the big stories was health technologies. During CES, The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) and IBM announced a partnership using artificial intelligence (AI) to develop a model for Parkinson’s disease. Though they are now gaining traction, artificial intelligence strategies, such as machine learning, have been a priority for

Posted by Rachel Dolhun, MD, December 10, 2018 Researchers recently announced that SURE-PD3, a Phase III clinical trial evaluating the potential of inosine to slow Parkinson’s progression, will end earlier than planned. At a regularly scheduled meeting, the study’s Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), a group of independent experts, reviewed trial progress and available data. Based on the study’s primary measure and timeline, the board determined that SURE-PD3 would
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is an extremely diverse disorder. While no two people experience Parkinson’s the same way, there are some commonalities. Parkinson’s affects about one million people in the United States and ten million worldwide. The main finding in brains of people with PD is loss of dopaminergic neurons in the area of the brain known as thesubstantia nigra.
There is no “one way” to diagnose Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, there are various symptoms and diagnostic tests used in combination. Making an accurate diagnosis of Parkinson’s — particularly in its early stages — is difficult, but a skilled practitioner can come to a reasoned conclusion that it is PD. It is important to remember that two of the four main symptoms must be present over a period of time
