Study for patients currently using Levodopa/Carbidopa who will be assigned to receive either Rasagiline or Placebo
A 2 phase study to evaluate disease progression in Parkinson's disease patients taking rasagiline
Patients who completed the study TVP-1012/232 are eligible to enter the extension study to continue their rasagiline therapy for their Parkinson's disease (PD). During this study the patie...
The study is a placebo controlled study, with two parallel arms, in which participants will be randomly assigned in a 2:1 ratio to receive either active (200 mg safinamide) or placebo in a...
The purpose of conducting phase 1 trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells(CS10BR05) in subjects with Multiple System Atrop...
The rate of clinical progression in patients with multiple system atrophy (MSA) varies between individuals and predictors for disease progression remain undefined. While the MSA-rasagiline study found...
As of March 2018, rasagiline is approved for the treatment of Parkinson disease in 55 countries including Japan. The present study evaluated the pharmacokinetics (PK) and safety of rasagiline in healt...
The aim of this study was to assess clinical response to a high-dose intravenous (IV) amantadine given for 5 consecutive days in patients with multiple system atrophy parkinsonism (MSA-P).
The onset of multiple system atrophy (MSA) before age 40 years is referred to as "young-onset MSA." We identified clinical and pathological characteristics that might help with its early diagnosis and...
This update discusses novel aspects on clinicopathological concepts and therapeutic challenges in progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA), arising from publications of t...
A group of inherited and sporadic disorders which share progressive ataxia in combination with atrophy of the CEREBELLUM; PONS; and inferior olivary nuclei. Additional clinical features may include MUSCLE RIGIDITY; NYSTAGMUS, PATHOLOGIC; RETINAL DEGENERATION; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; DEMENTIA; URINARY INCONTINENCE; and OPHTHALMOPLEGIA. The familial form has an earlier onset (second decade) and may feature spinal cord atrophy. The sporadic form tends to present in the fifth or sixth decade, and is considered a clinical subtype of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1085)
A progressive neurodegenerative condition of the central and autonomic nervous systems characterized by atrophy of the preganglionic lateral horn neurons of the thoracic spinal cord. This disease is generally considered a clinical variant of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. Affected individuals present in the fifth or sixth decade with ORTHOSTASIS and bladder dysfunction; and later develop FECAL INCONTINENCE; anhidrosis; ATAXIA; IMPOTENCE; and alterations of tone suggestive of basal ganglia dysfunction. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p536)
A syndrome complex composed of three conditions which represent clinical variants of the same disease process: STRIATONIGRAL DEGENERATION; SHY-DRAGER SYNDROME; and the sporadic form of OLIVOPONTOCEREBELLAR ATROPHIES. Clinical features include autonomic, cerebellar, and basal ganglia dysfunction. Pathologic examination reveals atrophy of the basal ganglia, cerebellum, pons, and medulla, with prominent loss of autonomic neurons in the brain stem and spinal cord. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1076; Baillieres Clin Neurol 1997 Apr;6(1):187-204; Med Clin North Am 1999 Mar;83(2):381-92)
Hereditary conditions that feature progressive visual loss in association with optic atrophy. Relatively common forms include autosomal dominant optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, AUTOSOMAL DOMINANT) and Leber hereditary optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHY, HEREDITARY, LEBER).
A sporadic neurodegenerative disease with onset in middle-age characterized clinically by Parkinsonian features (e.g., MUSCLE RIGIDITY; HYPOKINESIA; stooped posture) and HYPOTENSION. This condition is considered a clinical variant of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. Pathologic features include a prominent loss of neurons in the zona compacta of the SUBSTANTIA NIGRA and PUTAMEN. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1075-6)
