About The Cure Parkinson's Trust
The Cure Parkinson's Trust is patient-led and involves people living with Parkinson's disease to help shape its research policy and priorities. The charity has one aim - to find a cure for Parkinson's. It funds innovative scientists with the aim of developing treatments to halt or reverse the condition.
Initiatives orchestrated by The Cure Parkinson's Trust to overcome the barriers to a cure include:
Linked Clinical Trials initiative
The Cure Parkinson's Trust relies on skilled scientists and the commitment of the pharmaceutical industry to ensure it fulfils its vision. Its Linked Clinical Trials initiative is designed to help mitigate risk for Industry, whilst opening up new avenues of investigation. This is an area where the new chairman has phenomenal expertise and experience.
Working with a European consortium, CPT is developing new ways to measure Parkinson's, which in turn will have a significant impact on personalising Parkinson's treatment, as well as the measures and endpoints used in clinical trials. In the EU-funded
project, technology allows us to provide continuous, objective and accurate measurement for the first time, using symptoms that have been determined as the most relevant by those living with the condition
Created by people with Parkinson's for people with Parkinson's, Parkinson's Movement engages those living with the condition in better management and measurement of symptoms and in advancing treatments.
