A possible cure for Parkinson disease?!
I was bored today and was thinking about Parkinson for some odd reason. Correct me if I am wrong, but it is caused by a decreased dopamine secretion in the substantia nigra in the midbrain? If so injections of dopamine into the body should help deal with the symptoms.The reason we do not do that however is because the blood brain barrier (her by called BBB), as dopamine can not go through it. But aluminum can....Which is the base of this theory. If we could find a way to dissolve the aluminum in the brain, we can inject dopamine in an aluminium shell, and then dissolve it allowing dopamine to be released in the brain, curing the symptoms of this disease. Thoughts?
