Genomic rearrangements (exon dosage) are common mutations reported in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the prevalence of genomic rearrangements in 88 South African patients with predominantly early-onset PD (age-at-onset ≤50 years). The multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification method was used to detect(More)
South Africa has one of the highest incidences of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in the world. Concomitantly, aminoglycosides are commonly used in this country as a treatment against MDR-TB. To date, at least five mutations are known to confer susceptibility to aminoglycoside-induced hearing loss. The aim of the present study was to develop a(More)
