Study Purpose:

Currently, there are no cures or disease modifying therapies for Parkinson's disease (PD). This is partially due to the inability to detect the disease before it has progressed to a stage where there are clinical manifestations. The identification and validation of high throughput biomarkers to measure disease progression (as well as identify pre-clinical disease onset) is critical to the development of disease-modifying or even preventative therapies. In this study, we are testing a blood biomarker for PD. Several detection parameters will be assessed through enrollment of healthy volunteers over 50 years of age to learn more about the analytical process and biological variability.
