PARKINSON DISEASE: Defining PD subtypes — a step toward personalized management?
A recent article published in Brain proposes a clinical method for subtyping Parkinson disease cases on an individual basis, with implications for better patient stratification for personalized medicine. The authors report biological validity in terms of imaging and cerebrospinal fluid parameters, but long-term predictive validity remains to be established.
