Young Blood Plasma Parkinson's Disease Study One-Month Results to Be Introduced at the Texas Neurological Society Winter Conference in Austin on February 1st

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 31, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Neurology Center, a medical group practice of top doctors devoted to excellence in care, located in Houston, Texas, working in conjunction with two leading neurology and anti-aging specialists from Houston, will introduce on Friday initial, one-month results of their randomized controlled study of intravenously administering NuPlasma® young blood plasma into the first fourteen of twenty Parkinson's disease patients.

In a landmark investigation that addresses a well-known neurological disorder that affects more than 10 million people worldwide, for which there has been previously no known treatment that can slow the progression of the disease, the randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled study, designed to evaluate the efficacy of 25 ml/kg intravenous NuPlasma® young Fresh Frozen Plasma (yFFP) administered in two doses over three days, realized dramatic improvements in critical disease-conditions such as pain, facial expression, speech, handwriting, tremors, rigidity and falling.  yFFP recipients achieved improvements in 30/43 assessment categories, with yFFP outperforming the placebo in every assessment subset.
