Manufacturing Dopamine in the Brain with Gene Therapy

A novel solution for Parkinson’s patients who find their treatments wearing off.

Parkinson’s patients who take the drug levodopa, or L-Dopa, are inevitably disappointed. At first, during a “honeymoon” period, their symptoms (which include tremors and balance problems) are brought under control. But over time the drug becomes less effective. They may also need ultrahigh doses, and some start spending hours a day in a state of near-frozen paralysis.

A biotech company called Voyager Therapeutics now thinks it can extend the effects of L-Dopa by using a surprising approach: gene therapy. The company, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is testing the idea in Parkinson’s patients who’ve agreed to undergo brain surgery and an injection of new DNA.

«Un comandante puede ser perdonado por ser derrotado, pero no por haber sido sorprendido».

-- Manual de entrenamiento de los Cuerpos de Marines de los Estados Unidos.

Mantenerse alerta de los alrededores es el principio más importante de la defensa personal y en muchos casos actúa como un elemento de disuasión. Los criminales prefieren atacar cuando las condiciones están a su favor y una persona alerta representa un objetivo complicado que los induce a buscar blancos más fáciles.
