The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) is the only organisation in the UK solely dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s. We work with funders and institutional partners around the world to initiate and fund fundamental research and ground-breaking clinical trials.
Parkinson’s is a debilitating neurological condition affecting over 145,000 people in the UK and 10 million people worldwide. It is characterised by tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement and many other symptoms. There is no cure. The treatment of Parkinson’s has not changed significantly in over 50 years - i.e. the treatment of symptoms only - and some of the side effects of existing symptomatic treatments are as troubling as the condition itself.
CPT believes that a cure is within reach. Numerous recent scientific advances in the field lead us to the view that it is funding, not science, which is holding up effective treatments that slow, stop or reverse the condition. Our ground-breaking Linked Clinical Trials (LCT) program is a high-profile example (re-purposing - against Parkinson’s - existing treatments used for other conditions, based on sound biochemical evidence): many trials are underway, but there are many more to fund.
