Saliva Gland Test for Parkinson’s Disease? – Mayo Clinic

Described as a “big step forward” for research and treatment of Parkinson’s disease, new research from Mayo Clinic in Arizona and Banner Sun Health Research Institute suggests that testing a portion of a person’s saliva gland may be a way to diagnose the disease. The study was released today and will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 65th Annual Meeting in San Diego, March 16–23.

Study author Charles Adler, M.D., Ph.D., a neurologist at Mayo Clinic in Arizona, describes the research scope and findings.
