Background: There is lack of data on the incidence of Parkinson’s disease (PD) based on repeat studies. Mortality rates of PD in Estonia have never been studied before. Objectives: To estimate the incidence and mortality rates of PD in Estonia, to compare current incidence rates with those of the prior epidemiological study in Estonia, and to examine the reported causes of death of the study population. Methods: Eligible subjects were identified from multiple case-finding sources. Subjects were…

Transcriptomic profiles in Parkinson’s disease

For the first time a meta-analysis is applied on transcriptomic sample sets in Parkinson’s disease, exploring the notion that Parkinson's disease is not just a neuronal tissue disease by exploring peripheral tissues and comparing post mortem brain tissue and blood results.



Incidence of Parkinson’s Disease in Estonia

The incidence of Parkinson’s disease was studied over a 9-year period (1990–1998) in Tartu county, Estonia, with a mean population of 156,417, except for a slightly higher incidence rate in the urban compared with the rural population in Estonia.

Incidence of Parkinson’s disease in Norway: the Norwegian ParkWest study

Female gender was associated with a considerably lower risk of PD and slightly delayed motor onset but had no impact on severity of parkinsonism or clinical phenotype in incident drug naïve PD, suggesting that the female gender influences on the nigrostriatal system are most pronounced in the preclinical phase of the disease.

Incidence of Parkinson's disease and atypical parkinsonism: Russian population‐based study

The incidence of Parkinson's disease in the Russian population was slightly lower than in studies of Western populations and the male‐to‐female ratio was closer to those reported in studies from Asia.

The Incidence of Parkinson's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

PD incidence generally increases with age, although it may stabilize in those who are 80+, which may be explained by methodological differences between studies.

Trends in the Incidence of Parkinson Disease in the General Population: The Rotterdam Study.

The incidence of parkinsonism in general and of PD in particular, decreased between 1990 and 2011, and competitive event rates were lower in the 2000 subcohort, and mortality rates among persons with parkinsonist remained stable.

Time Trends in the Incidence of Parkinson Disease.

The study suggests that the incidence of parkinsonism and PD may have increased between 1976 and 2005, particularly in men 70 years and older, and is associated with the dramatic changes in smoking behavior that took place in the second half of the 20th century.

Incidence of Parkinson’s Disease in Bulgaria

The incidence of Parkinson’s disease was studied over a 3-year period (2002–2004) in the district of Plovdiv, Bulgaria with a mean population of 713,090 and the diagnosis PD was based on UK PD Society Brain Bank Criteria.
