Parkinson’s disease and your appendix High levels of improperly shaped proteins in the appendix may be an indicator of Parkinson's disease in the brain.

Researchers found higher levels of mis-folded proteins in the appendix of Parkinson’s patients compared to healthy controls. The researchers suggest that this finding of alpha-synuclein in the appendix may mean that misfolded alpha-synuclein can travel from the appendix to the brain as one of the potential mechanisms that leads to Parkinson’s disease.
