Potential Parkinson's breakthrough? Parkinson's reversed in mice

A potentially exciting breakthrough for generating new neurons and completely reversing Parkinsonís...at least in mice. I know that just because something works well in mice doesnít mean it will act the same in humans, but hopefully this discovery will lead to a cure...one way or another.

Gilead to begin clinical trials of inhaled version of Remdesivir

Not a cure or a vaccine, but if remdesivir can be administered at home and be shown effective in earlier stages of infection, this gives me some hope. If it can be used prophylactically, even better. For example if someone has been exposed but not yet showing symptoms. Many anti-virals will prevent the virus from infecting a person if given after exposure.
