Neurological diseases are on the rise

These are estimated to be 100 thousand patients with Alzheimer's disease, 30-50 thousand patients with Parkinson's disease and 5-10 thousand patients with some form of fronto-temporal lobar neurodegeneration (FTDL). One of the causes of such an increase may be the negative influence of toxic substances in the environment. The brain is also acutely threatened by cerebrovascular accidents, which affect approximately 25,000 people in our country every year. The Neurological Department of the 1st Faculty of Medicine of the UK and VFN plays a key role in the research of neurological diseases. The program deals with research on speech and other symptoms that precede the onset of neurodegenerative disorders.

Are we facing an epidemic?
The incidence of neurological diseases has been increasing over the past 30 years. They are not only a frequent cause of death, but patients suffer because of them and experience so-called lost years due to chronic neurological disease. However, it is not entirely clear what the cause is.
The increased incidence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease is usually associated with aging. But other factors are also added. The incidence of these diseases rose up to 145% between 1990-2016. "In the case of Parkinson's disease, we cannot explain the increase in incidence simply by the aging effect. Its incidence is increasing by more than 20% faster than we would expect. The cause is mainly the negative influence of toxic substances in the environment, to which dopamine-producing brain cells are particularly sensitive." states the already scientifically proven connection of prof. MD Robert Jech, Ph.D., head of the Neurological Clinic of the 1st Faculty of Medicine, UK and VFN.

What warning signals our body sends before the full development of these diseases, how we can diagnose them in time and what treatment methods are offered by modern medicine can be found in the attached press release.
