Abstract : Exposure to pesticides, solvents or traumatic brain injury increase PD risk. This study takes advantage of the population-based PD registry in Santa Clara County, California and extensive state toxicants databases to investigate the causes of PD and PD-related morbidity and mortality. Study Design: Phase 1: The residence history of more than 3,000 PD cases from the population-based PD registry will be linked to geographically-specific exposure information to determine the relationship between toxicant exposure and PD incidence, morbidity and mortality using Cox proportional hazards regression with time-varying measures of chronic exposure, adjusting for confounding. Phase 2: Conduct a case-control study in a stratified random sample of cases and matched controls, collecting information on occupation, traumatic brain injury, and lifestyle risk factor information and conducting exams. Relevance: This work can help identify the causes and, ultimately, ways to prevent PD.
