Abstract

Objectives: Endothelial dysfunction has been implicated as a crucial event in the development of several neurodegenerative diseases. The aim of this study was to investigate the serum homocysteine, asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and nitric oxide (NO) levels in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and to compare the results with data from healthy controls.
