Dopaminergic Loss and Pain in Parkinson's Disease

About 46% of patients suffering from Parkinson's disease present pain disorders. Parkinson disease is characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons. The aim of this study is to assess the ...

Study of Brain Imaging With Nuclear Technology in Individuals With Parkinsonian Syndrome

This study assesses dopamine transporter density using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) brain imaging with an investigational radiopharmaceutical, [123I]ß-CIT, in resear...

123I-ALTROPANE® Reference Image Acquisition in Subjects With Diagnostically Uncertain Tremor

This study is designed to obtain an imaging training set that will be used to evaluate images in future trials. Currently, no radiopharmaceutical diagnostic imaging agent has been approved...

Study of the Effects of Dopaminergic Medications on Dopamine Transporter Imaging in Parkinson's Disease

Study participants who have been clinically diagnosed with Parkinson disease will receive no treatment, treatment with either levodopa, or treatment with Mirapex for a period of 12 weeks. ...

An Open-Label Feasibility/Pilot Study With [123I]-IBZM SPECT (DOPA-SYN)

This study conducted to more fully evaluate the way that carbidopa/levodopa and entacapone may work in the brain. This research study uses [123I]-IBZM and dynamic SPECT imaging to determ...

Categorising Visual Hallucinations in Early Parkinson's Disease.

Visual hallucinations (VHs) are common in Parkinson's disease (PD), with prevalence ranging from 27-50% in cross-sectional cohorts of patients with well-established disease. However, minor hallucinati...

Neuroimaging advances in Parkinson's disease.

Neuroimaging in Parkinson's disease is an evolving field, providing in-vivo insights into the structural and biochemical changes of the condition, although its diagnosis remains clinical. Here, we aim...

Qualitative Evaluation of the Personal KinetiGraphTM Movement Recording System in a Parkinson's Clinic.

Wearable-sensors provide accurate, continuous objective measurements, quantifying the variable motor states of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) in real time.

Apathy in rapid eye movement sleep behaviour disorder is associated with serotonin depletion in the dorsal raphe nucleus.

Apathy is a common and under-recognized disorder that often emerges in the prodromal phase of Parkinsonian diseases. The mechanism by which this occurs is not known, but recent evidence from patients ...

Is Parkinson's disease a lysosomal disorder?

Common forms of Parkinson's disease have long been described as idiopathic, with no single penetrant genetic factor capable of influencing disease aetiology. Recent genetic studies indicate a clear as...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.

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)

A group of disorders which feature impaired motor control characterized by bradykinesia, MUSCLE RIGIDITY; TREMOR; and postural instability. Parkinsonian diseases are generally divided into primary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE), secondary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY) and inherited forms. These conditions are associated with dysfunction of dopaminergic or closely related motor integration neuronal pathways in the BASAL GANGLIA.

Parkinsonism following encephalitis, historically seen as a sequella of encephalitis lethargica (Von Economo Encephalitis). The early age of onset, the rapid progression of symptoms followed by stabilization, and the presence of a variety of other neurological disorders (e.g., sociopathic behavior; TICS; MUSCLE SPASMS; oculogyric crises; hyperphagia; and bizarre movements) distinguish this condition from primary PARKINSON DISEASE. Pathologic features include neuronal loss and gliosis concentrated in the MESENCEPHALON; SUBTHALAMUS; and HYPOTHALAMUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p754)

Conditions which feature clinical manifestations resembling primary Parkinson disease that are caused by a known or suspected condition. Examples include parkinsonism caused by vascular injury, drugs, trauma, toxin exposure, neoplasms, infections and degenerative or hereditary conditions. Clinical features may include bradykinesia, rigidity, parkinsonian gait, and masked facies. In general, tremor is less prominent in secondary parkinsonism than in the primary form. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1998, Ch38, pp39-42)
