(Daily Mirror) – Parkinson’s Disease victims could be helped by a drug used for liver disease.

Scientists found ursodeoxycholic acid increased energy levels in the cells of Parkinson’s sufferers.

They found it can slow the development of the condition, which affects 127,000 people in the UK.

As UDCA is already approved for treating liver disease, scientists hope it could be approved for Parkinson’s patients very quickly if more clinical trials prove its worth.
