Angelo Antonini, EAN 2022: New therapies and optimal treatment approaches for Parkinson’s disease
Data emerging from upcoming clinical trials assessing the treatment efficacy in people with clinically established Parkinson’s disease will shed light on optimal treatment approaches. In this interview with touchNEUROLOGY, Prof. Angelo Antonini (IRCCS San Camillo, Venice, and University of Padova, Italy) gives his thoughts on these and discusses how new efficacious therapies for Parkinson’s disease may be used most effectively.
