  1. Rising mortality due to Parkinson's disease and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis : a manifestation of the competitive nature of human mortality.

    Article - En anglais

    Over the past 15 yr, a marked increase in crude mortality rates from Parkinson's disease (PD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has occurred in the U.S. This is often attributed to as yet undefined environmental factors.

    The deterministic risk of general mortality and mortality due to PD, ALS, ischemic heart disease (IHD), and stroke for the years 1963, 1977, and 1986 in the U.S., as defined by the method of longitudinal Gompertzian analysis, were calculated and compared.
