Researchers at the Penn State College of Medicine found that statins may speed up the onset of Parkinson's symptoms, instead of preventing them.
Although previous studies have suggested that statins might protect against Parkinson's disease, others studies have shown that they increase risk for the disease.
The researchers analyzed data from a database of insurance claims, including 22,000 patients with Parkinson's disease.
They narrowed that data down to focus on 2,322 patients who were recently diagnosed with Parkinson's.
