How long someone lives with Parkinson’s disease may depend on specific gene mutations, according to new research presented on June 26, 2022, at the 8th European Academy of Neurology (EAN) Congress. Scientists from four institutes in Paris, including the prestigious Paris Brain Institute at the Sorbonne Université, studied the records of 2,037 Parkinson’s disease patients from their first hospital visit and believe the genetic variants may shed light on how quickly or slowly Parkinson’s disease progresses in cases where a single gene is involved.
