Parkinson's New Zealand

Newbee say hello and need advices

Hi everyone! I'm new here, I was diagnosed in 2009, and I'm living overseas so I have neurologist taking care of me. I contacted LCT global regarding NTCELL treatment, they said

the treatment should be available when provisional consent is obtained at end of 2017. I decided to try this treatment. As my neurologist is not in NZ. I believe he is not eligible to refer me to take this treatment. He even don't know anything about NTCELL. I can't get contact to my family doctor in NZ as I live in overseas for a long time. Any advices for my case? Btw, I need more friends in NZ, so we can chat and discuss more about PD stuff. I'm 49 years old male living in Hong Kong.

Maybe you should just participate in the upcoming trial(?). Here's the link to NTCELL study (currently seeking participants) with eligibility requirements:


Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I do not meet the criteria to participate in the trial. Btw, do I need a NZ neurologist refer me to take this treatment when it is available? Can I contact any neurologist directly without refer by family physician?
