Inflammation Biomarkers for Parkinson's Disease
The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research seeks to support research that will develop new or improve upon existing biomarker tools for neuroinflammation/peripheral inflammation in Parkinson's disease (PD). The specific goals of this initiative are to: 1) facilitate the development of biomarker measures that can be utilized for novel target validation, 2) assess pathological progression or phenoconversion, or 3) identify inflammation paradigms unique to PD. Proposed biomarkers should facilitate objective decisions to validate a particular target or target efficacy marker (downstream readouts of successful target modification), improve the ability to enrich subject populations in clinical trials and/or determine whether experimental treatments are modifying the course of the disease, its symptoms or its progression.
