2nd Webinar on Personalized Medicine

Optimizing Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease

Dear Colleagues,

Effective treatments for symptomatic control of Parkinson’s disease (PD) have developed during the last two decades. These include combinations of oral drugs as well as transdermal delivery and devices for subcutaneous and intestinal infusions that have been developed in parallel with deep-brain stimulation (DBS) for PD and other movement disorders.

Current research is expanding on optimization of treatment outcome in terms of efficacy, safety, and quality of life, and the rapid development of wearables and home-based monitoring technologies is encouraging.

Between November 2020 and January 2022, 10 papers were published in the Special Issue “Optimizing Treatment of Parkinson’s Disease”. The scope was the latest approaches for meeting the need of continuous individualization of the therapies.

It is a pleasure to invite you all to a webinar covering three of the articles from the Special Issue.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Dag Nyholm
