Non-professional community leaders may be at a great advantage in reaching otherwise hard to reach populations for the purpose of advising on sexually transmitted disease (STD) prevention (lay health advisors), health care access, and model health behavior. Latino migrant farm workers are at increased risk for STD and might benefit from such lay health advisors. The study will examine whether this strategy is a useful one for STD prevention in Latino migrant farm workers in ru...
Hypertension disproportionately affects and is inadequately controlled among African American and poor populations. The investigators propose to determine the impact of using trained lay health advisors to help patients address social contextual factors that influence the management of hypertension.
To identify patients within the community taking anti-parkinson medications in whom the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease is incorrect and to supervise and clinically monitor the withdrawal of anti-parkinson medications in this patient group
In this study the aim is to evaluate the outcome of deep brain stimulation (DBS) and continuous intraduodenal levodopa therapy in patients with advanced Parkinson' disease by using Parkinson's KinetiGraph™ device which is a movement and acceleration measuring device. In this study we also evaluate the usability of Parkinson's KinetiGraph™ device by comparing it with written patient diaries.
This study aims to find an effective and sustainable approach to reducing disparities in accessing mental health services for an underserved and growing population group of low-income, racially diverse, homebound older adults. It will compare two aging-service integrated, teledelivered depression treatments for these seniors. One model is short-term problem-solving therapy by licensed clinicians; the second model is self-care management support by trained lay advisors. The find...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and the value of providing care to individuals with Parkinson disease directly into their homes. The specific aims are: 1. To demonstrate the feasibility of conducting remote evaluations of patients with Parkinson disease nationally; 2. To measure the impact of remote care on each patient's ability to improve his or her quality of life (QoL) and better manage his or her Parkinson ...
Prospective observational study of Parkinson's disease with repeat clinical assessment and biobanking of blood samples.
Lower respiratory tract infections are one of the main hospitalization or mortality cause in idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Because of akinesia and articular rigidity these patient develop restrictive syndrome by reduction in the thoraco-lung compliance.The consequence is a progressive loss of the aerobic physical abilities and infection. The myotensive technique of active muscular stretching seem to increase the range of motion in healthy subject but also in patient with chr...
When a patient with Parkinson disease (PD) is initially treated with L dopa or dopamine agonists, the symptoms of PD improve or disappear. After several years of taking L dopa or dopamine agonists, patients notice that their PD medications wear off sooner than when they first started taking them. This "wearing off" is characterized by the return of symptoms (ie, tremor, slowness, and rigidity) and may occur over the course of a few minutes to an hour. When a patient's PD sym...
One person in every 500 has Parkinson's and around 127,000 people are living with the condition in the UK. The aim of the study is to identify new genes that predispose or cause Parkinson's Disease or Parkinsonism. There is a pressing need to study the genetic makeup of family members both with and without Parkinson's. As families share a common genetic background, it is easier to find new Parkinson's genes by studying the genetic makeup of people with Parkinson's alongside oth...
Advanced Parkinson's Disease is a debilitating, costly, and understudied condition. Improving access to comprehensive, specialized, in-home patient care and caregiver support offers the potential to minimize the downward spiral of morbidity and preventable healthcare utilization. The aim of this proposal is to test whether and to what degree an interdisciplinary home visit program, with and without peer mentoring for caregivers, will improve patient- and caregiver-reported outc...
The purpose of this study is to investigate similarities and differences in the neural pathways of depressed Parkinson's patients, non-depressed Parkinson's patients, and healthy controls using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain and neuropsychological assessment.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there is a benefit to giving a dopamine agonist to a patient with Parkinson's disease who is already being treated with levodopa.
By creating a neurogenebank from Parkinson's disease patients' blood donations we will ultimately be able to define genes for Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions.
The aging Veteran population, together with high exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides during military service, has made diseases such as Parkinson's disease (PD), currently affecting more than 80,000 Veterans, a major health issue in the Veterans' health system. Mobility and cognitive limitations are a common problem in PD and are associated with significant disability, increased fall risk, reduced quality of life, and increased caregiver burden. While less is known abo...
The purpose of this study is to determine if the 9zest app for Parkinson's disease is feasible, safe, and efficacious when used independently by individuals with Parkinson's disease.
The purpose of this study is (1) to determine if patient triggered sensory(auditory, visual and tactile) cues can help treat freezing of gait in Parkinson's disease, and (2) to assess if unexpected (randomized) cues are more effective than anticipated ones.
The proposed experiment will evaluate the effects of the NMDA receptor full agonist D-serine (~2g/day) on persistent symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and on antiparkinsonian drugs-induced dyskinesias. D-serine will be used as add-on therapy to on-going medications received by Parkinson's Disease patients. The rational for this study stems from observations made in pervious clinical trials with schizophrenia patients, in which it was demonstrated that D-serine adjuvant tre...
Prospective observational study to compare sensitivity of 3T functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (3T fMRI) at diagnosing Parkinson's Disease (PD) against the benchmark DaTScan diagnostic test and clinical diagnosis at follow up.
Currently, there is no clear diagnostic test that can be used to confirm the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, or a biomarker that can track its progression. Patients with Parkinson's have many abnormalities of the autonomic nervous system, which may be related to Parkinson's changes outside of the brain. A new device called the SudoScan, which measures autonomic sweating changes, may be a simple way to test for autonomic changes in Parkinson's. The investigator plan to ...
This is a prospective observational study investigating the utility of 7 Tesla MRI to quantify nigrosome1 signal in a cohort of individuals with recent onset Parkinson's disease and in at-risk cohorts at a premotor state of Parkinson's disease.
The aim of this research is to discover genes which modify risk for Parkinson's disease. The study includes 800 patients with Parkinson's disease, and their estimated 1,222 available siblings. Common variations of at least 9 genes will be studied, including genes associated with personality, substance use, and anxiety and depression.
Multi-center, retrospective observational cohort study in 4 tertiary referral centers in Cairo over the period from 2004 to 2016. Study population. including all patients with idiopathic Parkinson disease attending. Patients were diagnosed in accordance to the United Kingdom - Parkinson Disease Society Brain Bank criteria.
Clinical description and pathophysiological study of recently diagnosed untreated patients with Parkinson's Disease. Effect of a dopamine agonist (rotigotine) on apathy in de novo patients with Parkinson disease: A controlled, randomized, double blind study.
The purpose of this study is to determine the potential for a Parkinson's Disease (PD) -specific breath signature as a non-invasive screening tool for identifying PD patients with inflammation, tracking the progression of disease, and responsiveness to various therapeutic interventions, in particular anti-inflammatory or immunomodulatory therapies. Neurological disorders include any disorder involving the brain or the nervous system, for example memory disorders, stroke, moveme...
