Blackcurrant Increases Cyclic Glycine-proline in Cerebrospinal Fluid and Has Potential to Treat Parkinson’s Disease

Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) is a neurotrophic factor, which is involved in neuronal survival and brain function. However, in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), there is an increase in circulating IGF-1 and impaired IGF-1 function. This impaired function is thought to contribute to disease progression. Changes in plasma IGF-1 may predict prognosis and treatment responses … Continue reading Blackcurrant Increases Cyclic Glycine-proline in Cerebrospinal Fluid and Has Potential to Treat Parkinson’s Disease
