According to a report of The Lancet Neurology of May 2019 neurological disorders is with 9,0 million deaths and 16,5% of global deaths, the second leading cause of death after heart disease and with 276 million DALYs and 11,6% of global DALYs, it is the leading cause of disability. In the scientific paper “Abnormal Mitochondria in a Non-human Primate Model of MPTP-induced Parkinson’s Disease: Drp1 and CDK5/p25 Signaling” Park J. et al examining abnormal Mitochondria of non-human primate and the impact of it on Parkinson disease.
