Parkinson's Disease Biological & Biomedical Sciences Article (Article Sample)
The task involved writing an article on parkinson's disease discussing its characteristics and pathogenesis.
The sample attached is the discussion on the disease, including how advanced research facilitates progress in finding solutions to the disease with the example of APPENDECTOMY.
The burden of disease and prevalence remain tough challenges in contemporary society. Researchers and medical scientists continue exploring solutions through advanced research. Here, the focus is to better understand, prevent, and treat diseases. A study by Borghammer on Parkinson’s disease (PD) presents a scientific perspective on the condition (48). In particular, PD is a progressive nervous system disorder. Although it mainly affects the motor structure, PD is a multisystem disorder involving both the central and peripheral nervous systems (Borghammer 48). The pathogenesis of PD involves misfolding and aggregation of alpha-synuclein (Borghammer 48). Further, it is postulated the disease originates in olfactory and the peripheral enteric nervous system (ENS), and spreads throughout the central nervous system in a predictable pattern (Borghammer 48; Mendes et al. 1404). The involvement of ENS suggests the gastrointestinal (GI) system is a crucial point of the disease. Advanced knowledge of pathogenesis and characteristics of PD may facilitate improvement in patient symptoms.
