Sticking It to Parkinson's Disease

Vaccination spares mice from brain damage

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Vaccines have subdued once-dreaded killers such as polio and smallpox, and new research suggests they might help battle Parkinson's disease as well. Mice receiving shots containing a protein that accumulates in Parkinson's disease suffered less brain deterioration, suggesting a possible new means for fighting the incurable neurodegenerative illness.
