Statins are underused in recent-onset Parkinson's disease with increased vascular risk: findings from the UK Tracking Parkinson's and Oxford Parkinson's Disease Centre (OPDC) discovery cohorts.

Abstract:

Background

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) influences phenotypic variation in Parkinson’s disease (PD), and is usually an indication for statin therapy. It is less clear whether cardiovascular risk factors influence PD phenotype, and if statins are prescribed appropriately.

Objectives

To quantify vascular risk and statin use in recent onset PD, and examine the relationship between vascular risk, PD severity and phenotype.

Methods

Cardiovascular risk w...
