    UK is first in the U.S. to conduct trial of new Parkinson’s disease treatment A clinical trial being conducted at UK is investigating a new treatment strategy for Parkinson’s disease that, if successful, could drastically change future treatment of the disease and possibly halt or reverse brain degeneration. UK is the first in the U.S. to conduct the clinical trial.

    Craig van Horne, MD, associate professor of neurosurgery in the College of Medicine and principal investigator of the clinical trial, came to the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute only two years ago, but he is already making significant contributions to research and patient care related to Parkinson’s disease. If successful, this procedure could significantly change the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and could have an impact on other neurodegenerative disorders as well. Learn more.
