The researchers also collected samples from the ileum and the liver, both of which play a role in the production of bile, from people with Parkinson’s disease and a control group of people without the disease.

The analysis of the collected samples showed that the appendixes of those with Parkinson’s disease had higher levels of Peptostreptococcaceae, Lachnospiraceaeand Burkholderiales than people without the condition.
