Cerebral dopamine neurotrophic factor (CDNF) is a newly identified neurotrophic factor. In this study, we examined the CDNF rs11259365 polymorphism in 53 Greek patients with sporadic Parkinson’s disease (PD) and 52 control subjects, using a PCR-RFLP method. No association was found between this polymorphism and PD, in the Greek population.
