New evidence suggests that Parkinson's disease starts from the gut


Here's the details of these new proofs that prove that Parkinson's disease starts from the bowels

A group of mice suffers from Parkinson's disease after a slight defect in the gut, a discovery that provides further evidence of the connection between the gut and the brain.

A series of studies in recent years have shown that intestinal bacteria play an important role in the development of neurodegenerative diseases.

The researchers inject mice with a mild gastrointestinal anomaly and observed how this defect sends their immune system to an excessive extent, reducing the release of dopamine in the brain, a substance that controls the movement, ultimately resulting in Parkinson's disease or Parkinson's disease.

The team believes that the results can be translated into people, which can lead to the development of an intestinal drug to prevent destructive brain diseases.

The results of the study show that some forms of the disease are an autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks the body and is likely to begin these cases in the digestive tract years before observing patients any symptoms of vibration or cure.

The results add to the growing evidence that the intestines are associated with Parkinson's disease, the fastest-growing neurodegenerative disease in the world, said Dr. Diana Matthew, a neuroscientist at the University of Montreal, Canada, who co-authored the study.

There are currently around 6.9 million patients in the world, expected to increase to 14.2 million by 2040, leading to an epidemic.

One out of 10 cases of Parkinson's disease is caused by mutations in genes known as PINK1 and Parkin, which are responsible for mitochondrial health and are cellular power plants.
