The daily lives of people with Parkinson's disease.

This study assists the improvement of care to people with the disease, because the care practice emerges from the interactions between the subjects. PMID: 29412283 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 20 October 2018Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - Molecular Basis of DiseaseAuthor(s): Samantha N. Cobos, Seth A. Bennett, Mariana P. TorrenteAbstractEvery year, neurodegenerative disorders take more than 5000 lives in the US alone. Cures have not yet been found for many of the multitude of neuropathies. The majority of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) cases have no known genetic basis. Thus, it is evident that contemporary genetic approaches have failed to explain the etiology or etiologies of ALS/FTD and PD. Recen...

CONCLUSION: Our study showed that the informant-based simple questionnaire is a practical screening tool and is comparable with the language subscale of CASI. This tool can be applied in clinical practice and in the registration platform for rapid language dysfunction screening. PMID: 30336484 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

We report a patient with GD type 1 who was diagnosed with corticobasal syndrome (CBS), a clinical atypical parkinsonism diagnosis, in his sixth decade of life. Our case highlights the need to consider forms of atypical parkinsonism such as CBS in addition to PD in the differential diagnosis of cognitive and motor changes in patients with GD type 1. We also recommend careful assessment and routine monitoring of cognition, mood, behavior, sleep patterns, olfaction, and memory in patients with GD type 1 to identify early symptoms indicative of neurological involvement.

CONCLUSIONS: Prescribing habits of drugs with high therapeutic value predominated, mainly in antiparkinson drugs monotherapy. Most were employed in the usual recommended doses. It is necessary to explore the clinical effectiveness of the medications studied and differentiate between disease and parkinsonian syndromes subtypes. PMID: 30335247 [PubMed - in process]

In this study, we generated DA neurons from PARK2 patient-specific, isogenic PARK2 null and PARK6 patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells and found that these neurons exhibited more apoptosis and greater susceptibility to rotenone-induced mitochondrial stress. From phenotypic screening with an FDA-approved drug library, one voltage-gated calcium channel antagonist, benidipine, was found to suppress rotenone-induced apoptosis. Furthermore, we demonstrated the dysregulation of calcium homeostasis and increased susceptibility to rotenone-induced stress in PD, which is prevented by T-type calcium channel knockdown or a...

ConclusionsPD significantly impacted the affordances for aperture negotiation. Such altered perceptual affordances may contribute to gait pattern changes in people with PD when walking through doorways. These findings suggest that some of the motor symptoms in PD might have a perceptual underpinning.

The workshop aims to provide a kaleidoscopic view of the latest research, treatments, and ways forward towards better understanding and being able to cure Parkinson's disease. The workshop aims to moreover look at how greater funding could enable such steps forward, both clinically and politically - especially in light of negotiations on the upcoming research framework programme, Horizon Europe. Finally, the session will also explore the possible links between toxins (herbicides and pesticides) with the disease. Parkinson’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder having no known cause, typically with onset later...
