Elevated Heme Oxygenase-1 Correlates With Increased Brain Iron Deposition Measured by Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping and Decreased Hemoglobin in Patients With Parkinson’s Disease
Front Aging Neurosci. 2021 Mar 18;13:656626. doi: 10.3389/fnagi.2021.656626. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTBackground: Brain iron deposition, low hemoglobin (HGB), and increased heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) have been implicated in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the association among them in PD is poorly studied. Objective: To explore the association of the level of HO-1 with brain iron deposition and low level of HGB in PD. Methods: ... read more
