Non-linear Clustering of Smell Clinic Data Reliably Differs Parkinson’s Disease Patients and Healthy People

  Michael Sadovsky


We studied the relations between odor sensitivity and Parkinsonism, as well as some other neurodegenerative disorders. In particular, Sniffin’ sticks test has been used. The test comprises three subtests; it was shown the first one fails to reveal sick patients from healthy ones, while the second and the third work well. Reliable discrimination of healthy people from those with Parkinsonism was observed. Also, the second and the third subtests identify few healthy persons that may form a group at risk.
