MHC HLA autoimmunity inflammation in PD - bibliography

Here is a miscellany of references relevant to Sulzer et al 2017,

who did not claim that autoimmunity is the only causal factor in PD.

Indeed, anti-alpha-synuclein may be an etiologically significant

co-factor in only a subset of PwP.

All but one is open access. Be forewarned, mmunology has its own

lingo.

And in layman's terms .

Tere is substantial research looking at immune system atypicalities that may be related to PD.

Laymen come in all shapes and sizes, but I think that a lot of laymen would appreciate this recent post on "The Science of Parkinson's disease" blog.

It is written in the usual folky SOPD style, and contains a number of helpful diagrams.

The post is quite long, but you wouldn't need to read all of it, to get a lot out of it.
