Heinz Reichmann, MDS 2020 – Gut Microbiome and Parkinson’s Disease
As always, we were pleased to have the opportunity to catch-up with valued editorial board member Heinz Reichmann (Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany), who spoke to us on the topic of the lecture he gave during the on-demand sessions entitled: The Gut Microbiome in the Pathogenesis of Parkinson’s Disease.
1. Could you tell us about the association between constipation and Parkinson’s disease (PD)? (0:06)
2. Could you give us an overview of the evidence supporting the hypothesis that α-synuclein pathology originates in the gut and spreads to the enteric nervous system? (0:33)
3. What have these findings taught us about the cause of PD? (1:16)
4. Could you give us an overview of the key scientific data supporting a role of the gut microbiome in the development of PD? (2:15)
5. How can these findings potentially be used to improve treatment? (3:20)
