Parkinson’s research as key topic in the ‘RBS – Bulletin’

The Luxembourgish association, RBS – Center fir Altersfroen, has published in its latest magazine an article on the Luxembourg Parkinson Study. The article highlights how Luxembourg successfully became an internationally recognised site to investigate Parkinson’s disease.

4 years ago, the research study was established in order to understand and fight the cause and symptoms of Parkinson’s. By recruiting more than 1600 participants (800 patients and as many controls) for the Luxembourg Parkinson Study, invaluable insights into the disease could been gained already. The Luxembourg National Research Fund (Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR) ) already provided support to conduct and extend the study and continue the research during the next years. In particular, a new group of participants will be recruited to focus on the early signs of Parkinson’s disease.
