Nilo - PD Study

MJFF announced an exciting second study to test Nilotinib ( The approved drug used for Cronic Myelogenous leukemia), repurposed for people with Parkinson's. This study is called Nilo-PD. It's restricted to the USA, they're looking for 75 PEOPLE with Parkinson's, between the ages of 40 to 79, who have moderate to advanced PD (Diagnosed five+ years).

I fail to see what's so charming about a drug that costs $12,000 for 28 capsules in the US:

Great question! Nilo has not been approved for PD. If you're comparing it to Leukemia, the doses are far greater, therefore, more expensive. The first study Nilo reduced the buildup of alpha - synuclein. The Nilo-PD study would cost you $0. For more information contact Fox Trial Finder.
