About Parkinson’s Disease
Affecting an estimated one million Americans and 10
million worldwide, Parkinson’s disease is the
second-most common neurodegenerative disease after
Alzheimer’s and is the 14th-leading cause of death
in the United States. It is associated with a
progressive loss of motor control (e.g., shaking or
tremor at rest and lack of facial expression), as
well as non-motor symptoms (e.g., depression and
anxiety). There is no cure for Parkinson’s and
60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the
United States alone.
