Abstract:
Reports of trends in mortality from neurodegenerative disease have long relied on death certificates registries and other nationally-administered databanks to determine the state and direction of public health regarding these conditions. In this article, Mylne et. al. turned to the Office of National Statistics, England to ascertain the death statistics for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) for the most recent time period available. Their findings are both intriguing and encouraging, and deserve further comment.
