OBJECTIVES The single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs5174 of the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein 8 (LRP8) gene has been linked to decreased risk for Parkinson's disease (PD) on Caucasian populations. However, this association has not been proven in Han Chinese populations. METHODS A total of 378 unrelated Han patients with PD from the Department of Neurology, West China Hospital of Sichuan University and 274 unrelated Han healthy controls (HCs) from the same region were… CONTINUE READING
