ABSTRACT
The article offers information on Parkinson's disease in Great Britain. Parkinson's disease results in progressive motor deterioration, with slowing of movement and a tremor. The prevalence of Parkinson's disease is around 200 to 300 per 100,000 people and the incidence is 20 per 100,000 per year in the country. The pathology of Parkinson's involves the selective degeneration of the dopaminergic nigrostriatal pathway.
