PREDICT-PD

PREDICT-PD is a ground-breaking project using simple tests to identify people at high risk of Parkinson’s disease before the symptoms appear.

Research suggests that problems including loss of sense of smell, sleep problems, constipation, anxiety and depression may occur many years before the movement problems of Parkinson’s appear.

Being able to predict who is going to get Parkinson’s before symptoms appear, provides huge potential for the development of treatments in the early stages that could slow or prevent the condition progressing. This would be a major step forwards towards a cure and could have huge knock-on implications for dementia and other age-related diseases of the brain.
