What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive and degenerative disease that is classified as a brain disorder. It is caused by the death of dopaminergic neurons resulting in dopamine deficiency.
The progress of the disease and the possibility of affecting other functions besides movement have a negative impact on the patients’ quality of life. This disease appears at the age of 68 for men and 70 for women. Sometimes, a limited number of patients have Parkinson’s disease when they are just twenty years old.
