The latest knowledge about the clinical course, pathology, and cell biological concepts in Parkinson's disease suggest a continuous spreading of both the symptoms and the underlying degeneration of the nervous system. These new concepts influence the point-of-view of physicians, pathologists, and cell biologists: they have a substantial impact on the diagnostic classification and the development of novel therapeutic options. The present article outlines the new viewpoints and controversies, and summarises the resulting scientific concepts to develop therapeutic strategies.
