Parkinson's disease is a serious disorder of the nervous system that causes the body to experience shaking, rigid muscles, slow movement, uncontrollable tremors, impaired balance and walking. The disease tends to onset in midlife and become progressively worse with age.
Many patients are treated with Levodopa (aka L-dopa); although the drug is beneficial, its effectiveness wears off over time causing Parkinson's symptoms to return.
As a CureClick Ambassador I wanted to let you know that medical doctors are looking for people who take Levodopa to control their Parkinson's symptoms and are unsatisfied with the treatment.

For those of you whom are not familiar with clinical trials, here's some information that you can use:
What Are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans.
All investigational devices and medicines must undergo several clinical trials, often times these clinical trials require thousands of people.
Why participate in a clinical trial?
People whom are eligible will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval.
People whom are eligible for clinical trials will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical staff at research facilities.
Clinical trials offer hope for many people and gives researchers a chance to find better treatment for others in the future.
Disclaimer: I am not participating in this clinical trial. I am providing this information to my readers as a CureClick Ambasssador. Click on the links below to learn about my relationship with Cureclick and why I'm talking about clinical trials.
1 Lord, you are the God who saves me;
day and night I cry out to you.
2 May my prayer come before you;
turn your ear to my cry.
3 I am overwhelmed with troubles
and my life draws near to death.
4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
I am like one without strength.
5 I am set apart with the dead,
like the slain who lie in the grave,
whom you remember no more,
who are cut off from your care.
6 You have put me in the lowest pit,
in the darkest depths.
7 Your wrath lies heavily on me;
you have overwhelmed me with all your waves.[d]
8 You have taken from me my closest friends
and have made me repulsive to them.
I am confined and cannot escape;
9 my eyes are dim with grief.
I call to you, Lord, every day;
I spread out my hands to you.
10 Do you show your wonders to the dead?
Do their spirits rise up and praise you?
11 Is your love declared in the grave,
your faithfulness in Destruction[e]?
12 Are your wonders known in the place of darkness,
or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?
13 But I cry to you for help, Lord;
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14 Why, Lord, do you reject me
and hide your face from me?
15 From my youth I have suffered and been close to death;
I have borne your terrors and am in despair.
16 Your wrath has swept over me;
your terrors have destroyed me.
17 All day long they surround me like a flood;
they have completely engulfed me.
18 You have taken from me friend and neighbor—
darkness is my closest friend.
