The ultimate research goal for PD is a "neuroprotective" treatment that would halt disease progression or a "neuroregenerative" treatment that would repair sick nerve cells and reverse the disease. No such treatment exists today, and almost all treatments for Parkinson’s disease focus only on reducing the symptoms.

Significant research continues to be performed in the pursuit of "disease-modifying" therapies, and recent scientific discoveries have increased optimism that such therapies will be developed.
