Genetic overlap between Parkinson’s disease and inflammatory bowel disease

Genetic overlap between Parkinson’s disease and inflammatory bowel disease
Brain Commun. 2023 Jan 3;5(1):fcad002. doi: 10.1093/braincomms/fcad002. eCollection 2023.ABSTRACTParkinson's disease and inflammatory bowel disease have been increasingly associated, implying shared pathophysiology. To explore biological explanations for the reported connection, we leveraged summary statistics of updated genome-wide association studies and characterized the genetic overlap between the two diseases. Aggregated genetic association data were available for 37 688 cases versus 981 372 ... read more
