Environmental Epidemiology of Sporadic Parkinsons Disease

Twin studies suggest that environmental factors may be crucial in determining the risk of late-onset sporadic PD, and future multidisciplinary research is needed that includes input from both genetics and experimental biology.

Epidemiology of Parkinson's disease

The prevalence and incidence of Parkinson’s disease in Asians will be reviewed and the strength of the association of epidemiological factors with PD will be graded by weighing the evidence for each of these factors.

Perfil epidemiológico da doença de Parkinson no Brasil

A revision relates to what ir know about descriptive epidemiology and treatments related to the disease, the differentiation of parkinsonism types, as well as a projection amount of the Parkinson's disease patients in Brazil in 2060, to attend the governor on increasing the amount of elderly and consequently the increasing number of cases.

Genetics of Parkinson's disease

A comprehensive overview on PD genetics is provided to provide a comprehensive overview of the genetic architecture underlying this disease as families harboring rare genetic variants are sparse and globally widespread.

Pathogenesis of familial Parkinson’s disease: new insights based on monogenic forms of Parkinson’s disease

Recent progress in knowledge about the genes associated with familial PD is reviewed, revealing that PD‐associated genes play important roles in cellular functions, such as mitochondrial functions, ubiquitin‐proteasomal system, autophagy‐lysosomal pathway and membrane trafficking.

Epidemiology of Parkinson Disease.

Impulse Control Disorders in Parkinson’s disease

The epidemiology, genetic risk and long-term trajectory of ICDs in PD was described and it was found that ICD status in patients was independently associated with dopamine agonist treatment and depressive symptoms, while additional analyses on the PD cohort did not find any association between I CD status and presence of psychotic symptoms.

Prevalence of Parkinson's disease in Europe: A collaborative study of population-based cohorts. Neurologic Diseases in the Elderly Research Group.

The results of seven population-based studies were examined separately and pooled to obtain age- and sex-specific estimates of the prevalence of PD and found no sex differences in prevalence.

Dementia was found to be a significant predictor for institutional placement in the PD group, and this finding has significant implications for successful clinical management of this condition.

Prevalence of Parkinson's disease and other types of parkinsonism

The prevalence figures for Parkinson's disease and other types of parkinsonism in a Sicilian population are higher than those previously reported in Italy or elsewhere, which may be due, in part, to more complete case-ascertainment.

Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.

The genetics of these familial forms of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease are examined to improve understanding of the pathobiology of the more common, sporadic forms of the diseases.

The frequency and associated risk factors for dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease.

Patients with PD, especially those with severe extrapyramidal signs, have almost twice the risk for the development of dementia than do community-dwelling control subjects.
