I put in search "nilotinib" and came up with NOTHING. How can you possibly have left this out if you are what you purport to be... a place to learn about Parkinson's disease and its cure?

Thanks for your question, FrankMundo.
The use of low doses of nilotinib is being investigated for use for Parkinson's, Alzheimer's disease, ALS, dementia, and Huntington's disease. But it has not yet been approved for use in any of those conditions to date, including Parkinson's. It's currently in a Phase II clinical trial. If you're interested to learn more about the different phases of clinical trials, you can check out this article: https://parkinsonsdisease.net/research/clinical-trials/
While we do have articles about approved treatments for Parkinson's disease, we are sometimes slower to catch up on the new and emerging clinical trials! 😀
I'll be sure to bring your question back to our editorial team so we can get information on this exciting research up on the website! - Kate, ParkinsonsDisease.net Team Member
