The first manifestation of Parkinson's disease may be registered in the intestine!

The Fight against neurodegenerative diseases more effectively than before starting therapy of these diseases. The problem is that the identification of these diseases usually occurs at the stage of first symptoms of lesions of the nervous system. But, according to the publication Science Alert, thanks to scientists from Karolinska University therapy and quality of life of patients with Parkinson's disease can significantly improve because, according to their research, the first signs of the disease may be registered in the intestine long before the onset of symptoms.

Creating new theory is a scientific group headed by Boiling pour. They were able to notice that patients who underwent the procedure vagotomy (excision of the vagus nerve), 40% less likely to suffer from Parkinson's disease. Group Dr. Liu examined data from the national registry of diseases over the last 40 years. The data were analyzed 9430 people have been subjected to vagotomy, and information about 377 200 patients who did the operation. In addition, separate data was carried out according to the method of operation: selective or total vagotomy.

As we found out, the risk of developing Parkinson's disease with selective vagotomy amounted to 1.08%, and only 0.78%. But the risk of developing the disease among those who have not undergone vagotomy, were of 1.15%. The fact that the vagus nerve — this is one of the cranial nerves that regulate the digestive tract. And experts have suggested that it can play a significant role in the development of the disease. Perhaps the disease begins in the intestines where proteins begin «break», and then the vagus nerve are already reports this error in the brain. Thus, if further research will confirm this theory, it will be possible to develop methods for early diagnosis of Parkinson's disease to identify the disease before the appearance of lesions of the nervous system.
