There is currently no cure for PD, but a number of drugs offer benefits in terms of controlling the motor symptoms. While these drugs can offer significant improvements to motor function, they may lead to problematic adverse effects, particularly as disease progresses.
Axonal transport defects are strongly related to the generation of dysfunctional mitochondria. 11,23,53,8486 Thus impaired neuronal transport of mitochondria in concert with fusion and fission disturbances (see below) is a main reason for many neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), PD and Huntington´s disease (HD.
