Did you know that April is World Parkinson's Awareness Month? Moreover, April 11th is World Parkinson's Day. As one of Datapharm Australia’s AustralianClinicalTrials.com initiatives, we are proud to be a campaign partner this year for the Shake It Up Australia Foundation. Our aim is to increase the visibility and accessibility of Parkinson’s disease trials in Australia, and have posted some more resources on AustralianClinicalTrials.com's blog.
Parkinson's disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects movement and can cause tremors, stiffness, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Approximately 1 in 120 Australians suffer from this debilitating disease, there are a number of therapies available - both current and in development - aiming to help reduce symptoms.
To provide even better Parkinson's treatments, clinical trials are a crucial step. There are many different types of Parkinson’s trials, including ones that test new drug compounds and devices (interventional trials), ones that aim to better understand the disease (observational trials), and tests of non-pharmacological interventions. Participation in any of these trials help advance our medical knowledge of the disease.
Help Shake It Up Australia in their mission to slow, stop and cure Parkinson’s disease. Pledge a donation or participate in fundraising or clinical trials today. Together, we can make a difference. https://pause4parkinsons2023.raisely.com/
