Abstract

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative diseases. Here, we suggest that beyond iron deposition, emerging evidence further supports the involvement of ferroptosis in PD. A detailed understanding of ferroptosis in PD will help to predict the onset and progression of disease and establish personalized treatments.
