LRRK2 Cohort Working Group, 2012
Two groups have reported a possible association between carrying a LRRK2 mutation and non-skin cancers. In order to determine whether this finding is present in a larger group, or whether specific factors in those populations account for the higher rate of cancer, a larger study from more locations, and with a larger group of Parkinson's subjects and their family...

Gait and Motor Symptoms in Healthy Asymptomatic Relatives of Patients with PD Who Are Carriers of Mutations in the LRRK2 Gene
Gait disturbances play a major role in the motor manifestation of Parkinson's disease (PD). We aim to explore the possibility that subtle gait alterations are also present in the pre-diagnostic phase of PD and in populations at risk for developing PD. Therefore this study will investigate gait changes in patients and family members of carriers of genetic mutations in the LRRK...
