SYMPATH aims to advance the clinical development of therapeutic vaccines targeting alpha- Synuclein-driven neurodegenerative diseases including Parkinson's disease (PD) and multiple system atrophy
(MSA) where no causal therapy currently exists.
Supporting patients and caregivers affected by multiple system atrophy
65) The term multiple system atrophy
(MSA) was proposed to cover a whole array of "disease entities" which, according to the author, are in fact merely the expression of neuronal atrophy in a variety of overlapping combinations, including progressive autonomic failure.

Their laboratory studies, using mice, suggest that genes involved in iron metabolism, or lack thereof, may be the cause of Parkinson's and other diseases in which excessive brain iron has been noted, such as Friedrich's Ataxia, Hallervorden-Spatz disease, and multiple system atrophy
(formerly known as olivopontocerebellar atrophy).
DaTscan may be used to help differentiate essential tremor from tremor due to PS (idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD), multiple system atrophy
(MSA) and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP)).
nOH is a rare disease that occurs in people with an existing disease of the brain, spinal cord, or peripheral nerves, including Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy
(MSA), and pure autonomic failure (PAF).
