NEW YORK -- Former work heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali was given test medications yesterday by doctors who said he was suffering from "Parkinsonism," or minor symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Ali, 42, apparently did not have Parkinson's disease, a degenerative brain disease, "peruse," and experts believed his condition could be controlled by medicine, one of his doctors, Martin Ecker, said.
"He's not in any danger. It's not a fatal disease," said Ecker, medical director of Ali's boxing management company. "You don't die from what he has and I feel very optimistic that what he has can be controlled by medication."
Ecker, a diagnostic radiologist who was consulting on Ali's case, said doctors at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center were testing drugs on Ali "to see if it helps him and how much it helps him.'
