Treating Parkinson's in Germany

Parkinson’s is an incurable diseases, its degenerative in nature and the damage that result in the body is irreversible. This disease directly targets the brain and body co-ordination in the patients. The patients describe trying to perform a function but failing to do so because body doesn’t respond to the command issued by the brain. The damage starts slowly but ends up increasing marginally. Apart from those extreme and uncontrollable convulsions in the body, trembling limbs without any brain to body correspondence.

In Germany or any other part of the world there is no particular ‘cure’ for Parkinson’s. The usual treatment would be medication and surgical therapy. Research has shown that the people who are administered such therapies tend to hold out longer than those without any treatment whatsoever. Since its incurable the maximum that these therapies do is hold off the ‘of’ time. This is time when neurological commands do not correspond with bodily functions and the patient suffers from extreme convulsions, paralysis or just stiff painful movements.

The two types of therapies administered in Germany are medication and surgical therapy, which are as follows:

Medical Treatments to Reduce Off Time:

These are the medications that may reduce the off time experienced in Parkinson’s (Not all of these but some show severe side effects)

1. Entacapone 2. Rasagiline 3. Ropinirole, pramipexole, and pergolide 4. Tolcapone 5. Apomorphine and cabergoline 6. Selegilin 7. Levodopa (most important)

Surgical Treatment:

A surgical procedure called deep brain stimulation (DBS) may help improve motor fluctuations and dyskinesia in people with Parkinson disease. DBS is directed at three primary targets for Parkinson. All three of these structures are deep in the brain. In DBS, an electric probe (electrode) is placed in the brain. A wire from the electrode is routed beneath the skin to a pacemaker device implanted near your collarbone. The pacemaker and electrode stimulate a specific brain structure with pulses of electricity. This regulates the structure in the brain to improve off time and involuntary movement. Only special medical centers perform this procedure.

Side Effects:

For the former;

May cause motor fluctuations, which are periods of the day with poor or no response to medication (off time). This alternates with periods of improved function (on time). Over time people on levodopa or dopamine agonist therapy develop involuntary movements. These are called dyskinesia. Dyskinesia in Parkinson disease is caused by medications. This can affect quality of life and may cause disability.

For the latter;

Side effects may include thought process and speech disorders, visual and sensory disturbances, abnormal gait, lack of coordination, headaches, and seizures.

New niche in the treatment, specifically in Germany:

The adult stem cell research is proving to be promising and has apparently succeeded in delaying the effects of Parkinson’s. Parkinson-Klinik Wolfach and Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative (PPMI) have been taking initiatives to probe more into this type of therapy. The former has been a very famous institution for treating and rehabilitating patients of Parkinson’s. The offer treatments for the disorders developed during Parkinsons, these disorders include multi-system atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear paralysis, corticobasal degeneration, dystonia and various forms of tremor.

These are some treatment options offered specifically for Parkinson’s in Germany.
