Parkinson’s Disease (PD) belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders, which are the result of the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. PD impedes movement and often induces physical tremors in people who are affected, impeding daily life and making simple tasks into major challenges. PD trials are in high need of research volunteers to complete trials.
