Cancer Drug Helps Parkinson's Patients
« on: October 17, 2015, 02:20:50 PM »

A pill usually prescribed to treat leukemia has had dramatic effects in a few patients with Parkinson's disease, doctors reported Saturday.

Mary Leigh is one of a dozen patients who tested it for a team at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington.

"Within a couple of days, she kind of perked up and was at a more new normal that she had been at several years before," says Elizabeth Leigh, her daughter.

Alan Hoffman, 74, tells his own story. The professor emeritus of social science education at Georgia State University, who lives in Dumfries, Virginia, was diagnosed in 1997.
