We didn’t have too many treatments for neurological diseases. But after the ‘90s, which was designated as the decade of the brain, now we have options. We have many different treatments to approach every stage of the disease, more specifically for the Parkinson’s patients we see.
It’s a no-brainer that our research provides better outcomes for the future because that’s how medicine goes ahead.
Patients do want to get better when they come to you, and doctors want their patients to get better. So in our studies we found that we have a tremendous placebo response. So unless you put these new treatments into a rigorous scientific testing, you’ll never know the truth.
So we have to invest both the time, and the effort, and the money in figuring out what works and what not. So we’re working for the future, not only for right now. And the patients realize that. They realize that what they’re doing is not only for themselves, but for the general good.
