Is there any correlation between the symptoms of Lyme disease and Parkinson's disease? by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
No. Recent studies suggest that the neurodegeneration that occurs in Parkinson's disease is a result of stress on the endoplasmic reticulum in the cell rather than failure of the mitochondria as previously thought, according to a study in fruit flies. It was found that the death of neurons associated with the disease was prevented when chemicals that block the effects of endoplasmic reticulum stress were used.
Stress can be multifactorial: concussion, toxic fumes, toxic metals,microbiota
