MDS 2022 | CNS infiltration in Parkinson’s disease

Marina Romero-Ramos, PhD, Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark, describes the immune peripheral involvement in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Recent findings suggest that peripheral immune cells can infiltrate the brain of PD patients. Theoretically, these cells help the neurons, but the data available show that peripheral immune cells eventually harm the neurons. Further research is needed to better understand the involvement of peripheral immune cells in PD pathogenesis. This interview took place at the 2022 International Congress of Parkinson’s disease and Movement Disorders in Madrid, Spain.
