The present study is part of an international program and deals with the translation and validation program for the Italian version of the MDS-UPDRS.
The program will be articulated in three steps:
- Phase I: translation and back-translation of the MDS-UPDRS in Italian (completed)
- Phase II: Cognitive testing. This step is aimed at a preliminary testing of a subset of potentially culturally sensitive items in a limited set of PD patients (approximately 10). Should this phase identify issues in the understanding and ease of use of some items a revised translation of some individual items might be envisaged.
- Phase III: large validation testing: this phase will involve 350 PD patients from 12-14 Italian PD centres.
The IRIS protocol deals with phase II and III of the program.

A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses.

A rating scale that measures INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENTS known as TARDIVE DYSKINESIA.
Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.
Instrument designed to assess human or animal behavior, using a standardized format.
A condition caused by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes selective destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Clinical features include irreversible parkinsonian signs including rigidity and bradykinesia (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY). MPTP toxicity is also used as an animal model for the study of PARKINSON DISEASE. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1072; Neurology 1986 Feb;36(2):250-8)
