Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a long-term degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that mainly affects the motor system.

Most cases of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) are considered sporadic, occurring in patients with no familial history of the disease. Approximately 15 percent of people with PD have a family history of this disorder. Familial cases of PD can be caused by mutations in the LRRK2PARK7PINK1PRKN, or SNCA genes, or by alterations in genes that have not been identified. Mutations in some of these genes may also play a role in cases that appear to be sporadic (not inherited).
