7 million euro awarded for Parkinson’s research through Innovative Medicines Initiative New, more effective treatments are urgently needed for the more than one million people living with Parkinson’s in Europe today. While there are therapies available for the condition, they do not improve all symptoms, nor do they slow or prevent disease progression over time, and long-term treatment is associated with adverse side effects. PD-MitoQUANT (www.pdmitoquant.eu) is an Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI - www.imi.europa.eu) research project that will improve our understanding of Parkinson’s so that better treatments can be developed in the future. The project will run for 3 years, starting from 01 February 2019, receiving 4.5 million euro in funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and 2.46 million euro in-kind from European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA) members and Parkinson’s UK. Researchers already know that neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s, damage cells in our brain. PD-MitoQUANT [...]
