New Vaccine for Parkinson Disease Looks Promising


Yesterday we went for our quarterly check up to Macrine's neurologist specializing in movement disorders and Parkinson Disease. As usual, we always talked about advancement and new therapies for Parkinson. I asked him if stem cell research is the latest and He said No. Since I have been following the Michael Fox News, I told the neurologist, that my guess is probably vaccine research. He smiled with an approving yes. He was not surprise that I mentioned vaccine research.

Jokingly I told him if the vaccine works, then he will run out of new patients, once the vaccine is approved. He just smiled and told me it probably will be another 4 years or more before vaccine is approved by FDA. He told me to read the following articles as follows:

Macrine enjoying her lemon tree and trying to walk in the yard for her exercise after our quarterly check up from her neurologist yesterday. Today she tried to play the piano that I also posted in my FB page. To all who commented and like her piano playing and the above photo, thank you so much.
