For patients with a family history of Parkinson’s disease, understanding their genetic risk of developing the condition is an important first step in tailoring interventions that may delay symptom onset and progression.
Genetic testing can reveal characteristics about prognosis and may help guide and customize treatment selection. Genetic testing is also important for patients affected by early-onset illness, which is more often due to genetic causes. Although known genetic variation is present in only 10% to 15% of patients, awareness regarding specific genetic causes can deepen understanding about disease progression and enable elevated outcomes.
