Iron and Parkinson's disease: chelators to the rescue?
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  14552066     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The essential metal iron has long been implicated in the neuronal damage associated with Parkinson's disease. Recent findings show that iron chelation may prevent the reductions in dopamine and motor disturbances associated with this disease, and suggest the need to examine the role of dietary iron and the use of metal chelators in neurodegenerative disorders.
