5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T gene polymorphism can influence age at onset of Parkinson's disease.

Abstract

A case-control study was designed to investigate a possible genetic susceptibility of the MTHFR C677T polymorphism and assess whether the genetic polymorphism could be a predictor of levodopa-induced adverse effects in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) of Chinese descent living in Taiwan. There were 94 sporadic PD patients with levodopa therapy at… (More)
