Abstract: We showed that the frequency of a LRRK2 variant (c.4883G > C, R1628P) was higher in Parkinson's disease (PD) compared to controls (8.4 vs. 3.4%, P = 0.046, OR 2.5, 95% CI 1.1-5.6). In the multivariate logistic regression (with adjustments made for the effect of age, age of onset, and gender), the heterozygous R1628P genotype was associated with an increased risk of PD compared to controls (OR 3.3, 95% CI 1.4- 7.9, P = 0.007). We provided an independent confirmation that the R1628P variant increases the risk of PD among Chinese. © Springer-Verlag 2008.
