In the war between Western medicine and disease there’s still a lot to learn about many ailments. Among these less understood illnesses is Parkinson’s disease.

However, a clinical trial, set to begin this fall at 14 research sites in the United States and four overseas, may change that.

Currently, it takes a battery of exams to diagnose the devastating disease.
