Bidirectional interplay between the brain and the gut includes the vagus nerve pathway, and non-vagus nerve pathways such as the bloodstream. Important factors associated with the development of PD include ageing-related processes, aggregation and spread of alpha-synuclein, gut bacterial microbiome and their metabolic activities, gut barrier disruption, inflammation, environmental influences, host genetic factors, and probably chance effects.
