Parkinson Study Group, officially designated as a 501c3 non-profit organization, has carried out cooperative therapeutic research since 1986, beginning with the NIH-sponsored DATATOP (Deprenyl and Tocopherol Antioxidative Therapy of Parkinsonism) clinical trial.

Since then we have carried out more than 35 multi-center trials examining the symptomatic and neuroprotective effects of experimental interventions in Parkinson disease. The PSG has partnered with numerous pharmaceutical companies and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in bringing new drugs for Parkinson disease to the market including pramipexole, entacapone, rotigotine and rasagiline.
