Diesel Exhaust Tied to Risk of Parkinson’s Disease, Fish Study Shows – Parkinson’s News Today

Chemicals in diesel exhaust can trigger the formation of toxic protein clumps and the death of nerve cells — hallmarks of Parkinson’s disease — by preventing the cell’s natural disposal mechanisms from working properly, a study in fish and human cells shows.

The findings also demonstrated that boosting these cellular recycling mechanisms with an approved leukemia medication, Tasigna (nilotinib), reduced the neuronal toxicity caused by diesel exhaust.
