VMTDiagnostic of Parkinson Disease
UPDRS is the standard manual scale based on
performance and cognitive tasks. It takes 20-30 min of the neurologist time to complete the test.
Dopamine uptake ligand beta-CIT, a SPECT agent is the most sensitive of biomarkers for the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.
Beta-CIT targets the dopamine transporter on the dopamine neuronal terminals and quantifies the loss of those terminals.
If a “holy grail” exists in the context of Parkinson’s disease (PD) there is no doubt that it would be a treatment that can slow, stop or even reverse the degeneration of neurons whose death causes the disease
