Doctor with Parkinson's Continues to Serve the Medical World

Dr. Capistrant studied genetic mutations with Parkinson's disease

During that time, he suspected that his patients, who were mostly farmers, had triggered their disease by excessive exposure to the pesticides used on their fields. However, he abandoned this theory, and started to study the genetic mutations related to Parkinson's disease. He said, some patients described this disease as an engine that is constantly running. Now, the doctor understands that feeling all too well.
