I have been wondering why is taking SO LONG to get the next Clinical Test underway for Nilotinib, an anti-cancer drug drug which in a small test, appears to slow or stop progression of Parkinsons. With initial (albeit a very small test) of the drug that was completed with results reported OVER A YEAR AGO... MJFF has been waffling about getting a test started and now suggests they'll be starting a test in 2017.... when initial test results were reported to the general public in August, 2015 !
Apparently, behind the scenes there has been a major dustup (turf war ?) going on between the initial research group at Georgetown University and MJFF. It really calls into question how serious is the commitment of MJFF to quickly get a cure for PD. For those of us suffering with disease... "time is a-wasting...." Here is a link to the debacle:
