Epidemiology of Parkinsons disease

Improving economy and health in countries like USA, Germany, has increased the life span and changed the emphasis from communicable to non-communicable diseases. It is expected that the prevalence of Parkinson’s disease in the 7MM (US, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Brazil, and Japan) and UK will increase from 3.2m people in 2012 to 4.3m people in 2022. The global treatment for syndromes of the movement disorders market is anticipated to grow from an estimated $ 12,859.8 million in 2014 to $ 21,154.8 million in 2020 at a CAGR of 8.6% during the forecast period. This increase the prevalence of age-related diseases and movement disorders like Parkinson's disease (PD). We review epidemiological studies to describe: a) Developments in interdisciplinary of Parkinson and movement disorders, b) Aggregation and Protein Misfolding and c) potential of epidemiological research in countries with multiple ethnic races and environmental risks for PD, d) methodological issues, e) Prevalence of movement disorders.

The Parkinson's disease is the second most typical neurodegenerative disorder, are still mostly unknown. Current thinking is that major gene mutations cause only a small proportion of all cases which in most cases, non-genetic factors play vicinity, in all probability in interaction with susceptibility genes. Various epidemiologic studies have been done to spot such non-genetic risk factors, however most were tiny and methodologically restricted. Larger, well-designed prospective cohort studies have only recently reached a stage at that they need enough incident patients and person-years of follow-up to investigate possible risk factors and their interactions. We have a tendency to review what's familiar regarding the prevalence, incidence, risk factors, and prognosis of Parkinson's disease from epidemiologic studies.
