Study Uncovers Genetic Variants Linked to Disease Progression

Scientists have identified genetic variations that are associated with different rates of disease progression in people with Parkinson’s disease. The findings suggest that the genetic changes that affect disease progression are distinct from those that impact whether a person will get Parkinson’s at all, and that disease initiation and progression may be caused by distinct biological processes. The study, “Genome-wide survival study identifies a novel synaptic locus and polygenic score for cognitive progression in Parkinson’s…
