In a set of a population-based study, long-term survival of 59 prevalent PD patients was compared with that of individuals free of neurological diseasesmatched 1:2 by sex and age of enrolment.PD individuals, compared with reference subjects, showed a two-fold increased risk of death (OR 2.1; 95 % CI 1.4, 3.1). Among causes of death, pneumonia and cachexia were significantly morefrequent among PD patients thanamong individuals free of neurologicaldiseases.
