Family History of Melanoma Doubles Parkinson's Risk
Date:2/16/2009

inson's disease was significant, the researchers reported.

Dr. Roberto Zanetti, director of the Piedmont Cancer Registry in Torino, Italy, and an expert in the connection between Parkinson's and melanoma, doesn't think this study adds much to what has already been reported.

"It seems to add a piece of evidence to the question of the association between Parkinson's disease and melanoma," Zanetti said. "The abstract does not add much about the mechanisms. And, in terms of interpretation, it does not seems to add much to what we have discussed in The Lancet two years ago," he said.
