    Jeanne C Latourelle
    Department of Neurology, Boston University School of Medicine, Boston University, Boston, MA, USA
    BMC Med 6:32. 2008
    ..Studies of the penetrance of LRRK2 mutations have produced a wide range of estimates, possibly due to differences in study design and recruitment, including in particular differences between samples of familial PD versus sporadic PD...
