Research Shows Connection Between Parkinson's And Appendectomies

Parkinson's-inducing protein in the gut points to possible link between gastrointestinal tract and disease

Getting the appendix removed early in life significantly reduces a person's risk of developing Parkinson's Disease, a study has found.

Parkinson's disease is an incurable brain disease that affects the senses, memory and mood.

Although they do not advise that people go and have their appendix removed, as this is not a sure protection against Parkinson's disease.

Grassley said Committee investigators attempted to reach Munro-Leighton by phone on October 3, but were unsuccessful. Grassley said looking into Munro-Leighton's claims diverted resources on a time-sensitive manner.

It is the first time that scientists associate Parkinson to the instrument body, which appears to act as a "reservoir" for abnormal neuronal proteins (alpha-synuclein) associated with the onset and exacerbation of disease.

Parkinson's disease may originate deep in the digestive system, according to a new study by United States scientists. NutraIngredients reported previously on the theory that gut microbes may trigger Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease has always been considered a disease of the brain, but research out Wednesday found it may start in the gut - specifically in the appendix, a tiny organ near the large intestine. Also, the scientists found some differences in protein structure between healthy people and people with Parkinson's disease. The researchers believe that Parkinson's might be triggered during the rare occurrence that the protein escapes the appendix.

The disorder now is an incurable neurodegenerative disease accompanied with tremors, balance issues, and gastrointestinal problems, which seems to be more common among those living in rural areas. Labrie said that the appendix was just one possible place for the disease to start, but there are likely other origin points. Statistics showed that half a million of the risk had no problem with the Appendix. Although the appendix has gained a reputation of being redundant, in fact plays an important role in our immune system, regulating the bacteria in our gut and, is playing a role in Parkinson's disease.

But this is a potential avenue for treatment, and drug companies are interested in targeting the protein in people who already have Parkinson's, Patrik Brundin, director of the Centre for Neurodegenerative Science at the Van Andel Research Institute, said in the teleconference.
