People diagnosed with Parkinson’s wanted for study

A major study is currently underway to understand the very earliest steps in Parkinson’s with the eventual aim of generating drugs to halt the condition before symptoms appear.

People with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s made in the last 3 years will be eligible for study participation. Individuals will be given the opportunity to consent to a blood test for DNA analysis and a clinical assessment with a neurologist during the outpatient visits.

This study is running across 11 sites: Amersham, Ascot, Aylesbury, Banbury, Henley, Kettering, Milton Keynes, Newbury, Northampton, Oxford and Reading.

If you’re interested in taking part, or would like to learn more, please telephone the Discovery research team on 01865 234892 or e-mail
