BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Mutations in the glucocerebrosidase (GBA) gene have been implicated in the development of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, recent screenings for GBA mutations in PD subjects from different ethnic populations have yielded contradictory results. METHODS We performed a case-control study to look for a possible association between PD and the GBA N370S allele involving 628 subjects in two separate Chinese Han populations from mainland China. All subjects were successfully… CONTINUE READING
