Episode 169: Implications of Gene-Based Therapies for Parkinson’s Disease

Gene-based therapy for Parkinson’s disease is an area of research that is currently being developed. It works by introducing genetic material into the brain, which can then “instruct” cells to produce compounds that can potentially alleviate symptoms of Parkinson’s. Although years have gone by since the first gene-based clinical trial, there is still much to learn before fully realizing its potential impact to treat Parkinson’s disease.

In this episode, Movement Disorders Neurologist, Andrew Feigin, MD of New York University Langone Health discusses what gene-based therapy is, how it differs from cell-based therapy, different trials currently in progress, and considerations for future research.
