Epidemiology of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is one of the well-known age related neurodegenerative disorder, second in recurrence just to Alzheimer's disease. Parkinson’s disease also causes extensive injury of the motor or sensory pathways extending beyond the pigmental brain stem nuclei. Although the disease symptoms can be controlled by Levodopa but the etiology of the Parkinson’s disease remains obscure. In the United States half a million of people are diagnosed as having PD and it is predicted to be triple over next 50 years. PD appears to be slightly more in men than in women usually ranging from 1.2:1 ratio upto 1.5:1. The Parkinson’s disease market in US is expected to grow at a rate of 7.3% from sales of of $1.1 billion in 2012 to $2.3 billion in 2022. The population with Parkinson’s disease incurred medical expenses of approximately $14.4 per year in United States. In U.S. 15% of people with PD were in the nursing homes as compared to 9 % are of all residents aged 75-84.
