  • The authors conducted a case-control study of Parkinson's disease patients with and without visual hallucinations to investigate associations of the polymorphisms of the dopamine receptors D2 32806 C>T (Taq1A), D3 Ser9Gly and Msp1, D5 978T>C and dopamine transporter 3'-UTR 40 bp VNTR with visual hallucinations in Parkinson's disease. No significant differences were found between hallucinators and non-hallucinators in either the genotypic or allelic distributions. Our data suggest that the loci… CONTINUE READING
