BDNF in Parkinson's

I have read that BDNF has been shown in cell culture and animal
experiments to protect substantia nigra neurons from death (due
to MPTP, OHDA, etc).
I was wondering if there have been any clinical trials of BDNF
in PD (or Alzheimer's) patients (I tried looking for this on
medline but found little).

Thanks for any info
