dc.description.abstractParkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease caused by a reduction in dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra (Dexter and Jenner, 2013). Individuals can exhibit muscle tremors, rigidity, and bradykinesia, leading to posture and gait abnormalities (Dexter and Jenner, 2013). Although the incidence ratio of males to females is ~1.46 (Taylor et al., 2007), the prevalence of PD among men is doubled when compared to women (Elbaz et al., 2002). A lower mortality rate has traditionally been associated with PD in women due to the overall longer life expectancy when compared to men in the general population (Xu et al., 2014; Pinter et al., 2015). However, a diagnosis of PD was found to be associated with a two-fold increased risk for all-cause mortality in a recent study with 396 older women (Winter et al., 2016). This value is similar to that reported among older men (Xu et al., 2014).en_US
