Advances in Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Deep Brain Stimulation

In honor of Parkinson’s Awareness Week, we are sharing the new and exciting discoveries in Parkinson’s disease treatment. Drs. Han-Lin Chiang and Yih-Ru Wu, leaders in Parkinson’s disease research, discuss some of the most promising advancements in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.


Systems biology study identifies acquired cancer resistance beyond mutations


Precision targeting offers hope after a life-changing cancer diagnosis. However, some cancers that initially respond to targeted chemotherapy become treatment-resistant — and this may have nothing to do with the drug itself. Hidden layers of regulation that control the activity of genes can produce drug-resistant, surviving cells. New research, published today in BMC Systems Biology helps explain how therapy-resistant cancers arise — findings with important implications for the future of cancer therapy.
