Maxime Rousseaux
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the most common movement neurodegenerative disease affecting approximately 1% of the population over 60. Though originally thought to be sporadic in nature, a genetic component is increasingly being linked to the disease. Of these genes, mutations in DJ-1 (PARK7) cause early onset autosomal recessive PD.
