The EPDA is involved in a number of large-scale and varied projects, each of which you can learn more about in this section of our website. If you have any queries about these projects – or are interested in working with us on new or existing projects – then please email us at info@epda.eu.com.


My PD Journey

My PD Journey is a first-of-its-kind multi-stakeholder project for people with Parkinson’s in Europe. The new initiative involves representatives across the entire Parkinson’s disease community – including European umbrella healthcare organisations, high-profile European Parkinson’s specialists, people with Parkinson’s, carers, members of the multidisciplinary healthcare team, academics and health economists.

The various activities being delivered over the next two years will create a sustainable environment that ensures people with Parkinson’s will receive optimal and timely access to appropriate diagnosis, treatment and care throughout the progression of their disease.

Neurological Regeneration Trial (NRT)

The Neurological Regeneration Trial (NRT) project is an EU-funded, European phase II clinical trial to demonstrate that rhPDGF-BB (recombinant human platelet derived growth factor-BB) can act as a novel restorative therapy for people with Parkinson’s.

The therapy builds on compelling data from animal studies and the results of a phase I clinical trial, which have shown that rhPDGF-BB is safe and well tolerated, and that the surgical procedure is without unacceptable side effects to humans.
