Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson's Disease: the second most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide

Parkinson's is a progressive disease that mainly affects certain functions, such as the control of movements and balance. Due to the aging of the population and diseases connected with this phenomenon, a global increase in the number of people suffering from Parkinson's disease is expected.

We continue to invest in research of new solutions for patient’s suffering from Parkinson’s Disease

We started investing in the Central Nervous System in 2015, focusing our efforts on research into Parkinson’s disease, a treatment sector in which there had been no new developments for years. 

Since 2016, more than 30,000 patients have been able to benefit from these investments by means of an innovative molecule that constitutes a decisive step forward in the treatment of this chronic disease.

It is important to continue offering new solutions in this sector, and this is why at Zambon Sweden we study patient-focused products and solutions, and value partnerships as well as ad hoc industrial, research or marketing projects.
