Hepatitis B and C Are Tied to Risk of Parkinson’s Disease
« on: April 05, 2017, 10:19:04 am »
Researchers have uncovered an association between hepatitis B and C viruses (HBV/HCV) and an increased risk of Parkinson’s disease, The New York Times reports.

Publishing their findings in the journal Neurology, researchers analyzed data on Parkinson’s rates among patient records in the English National Hospital Episode Statistics database, covering 1999 to 2011. They analyzed records of 22,000 people with hep B, 48,000 people with hep C, 6,000 people with autoimmune hepatitis, 4,000 people with chronic active hepatitis and close to 20,000 people with HIV. They compared these groups with a cohort of more than 6 million people with relatively innocuous conditions, including cataract surgery, bunions and knee replacement surgery.
