Neurodegenerative disorders represent a major and growing cause of morbidity and mortality in our populations, and a therapeutic challenge for the years to come. This paper reviews the mechanisms implicated in neuronal death, focusing on the model of Parkinson's disease. Available data are critically presented, and oriented in a therapeutic perspective. Neuroprotective strategies are mentioned, along with stem cell transplantation, growth factor production and gene therapy.
