Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. The most common symptom for Parkinson’s Disease is tremors, but other symptoms include stiffness or slowing of movement. Currently, there is no cure for Parkinson’s Disease, but medications might significantly improve symptoms.
High-quality samples are paramount in developing new treatments for Parkinson’s Disease. HemaCare sources, isolates, and ships human samples under rigorously controlled protocols to provide the optimum starting material for your research.
Patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease are recruited as donors for research products. They review and sign an independent biomedical review board (IRB) approved procedure-specific consent form prior to the collection.
Storage at -80° C is acceptable.
Testing: Donors are tested for HBV, HCV, and HIV, unless requested otherwise.
