Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer’s, affecting more than a million people in the United States and an estimated four million worldwide. The prevalence of the disease is expected to increase substantially in the next 20 years due to the aging of the population in the U.S., Europe and globally, as well as an increase in the age-related incidence of the disease.
