Lyme and Parkinson’s Disease (1 CEU)
In this presentation, we consider Parkinson’s Disease from epidemiology and pathophysiology to clinical presentations, diagnostic criteria, and treatment options. We specifically examine currently accepted pathophysiologic pathways resulting in PD phenotype. Additionally, risk factors of microbial, environmental, and metabolic origin are discussed. Finally, we look into laboratory workup that can help assess the above mentioned risk factors, and treatment options that mitigate the risks associated with those risks.
- Review existing information on pathophysiology of PD with emphasis on the microbial, environmental, and metabolic risks factors of PD development
- Evaluate microbial, metabolic, and environmental risk factors for our current ability to modify them and for currently available tests to measure those that can be modified.
- Review and evaluate existing therapies for their potential to mitigate microbial, environmental, and metabolic risk factors of PD development.
