Update on the Patient's Clinical Status

The patient was referred to an institution close to her home. That institution is currently studying the efficacy of TM and zinc vs trientine alone in a blinded trial. Approximately 3 months after starting therapy, her speech and swallowing have improved but are not normal. She has now developed a tremor and has also been diagnosed with depression. This relatively minor decline in neurologic status is common within the first months of therapy.
