CONCLUSIONS: While addressing individual factors associated with sleep disturbances, it is also important to emphasize the needs arising from the patient-carer dyadic relationship. While a number of non-pharmacological interventions were suggested in the literature, further well-controlled trials are still required. CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Multiple approaches are required to reduce sleep disturbances and associated burden in PD. PMID: 30422081 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsStriatal dopaminergic depletion was not significantly correlated with any of the various non-motor symptoms in PD. Our findings suggest that non-dopaminergic systems are significantly implicated in the pathogenesis of non-motor symptoms in patients with PD.

Research findings have shown that iRBD is a prodromal stage of synucleinopathies such as Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodi...
cine du sommeil (SFRMS) Abstract Circadian rhythm sleep disorders (CRSD) result from a disturbed endogenous clock (intrinsic CRSD) or from a misalignment between the biological clock and an imposed environment (extrinsic CRSD). Among intrinsic CRSD, one distinguishes the delayed sleep-wake phase disorder, the advanced sleep-wake phase disorder, the irregular sleep-wake rhythm disorder and the non-24-hour sleep-wake rhythm disorder. Shift work disorder, jet lag disorder and circadian sleep-wake disorder not otherwise specified are extrinsic CRSD. Prevalences of the different CRSD remain largely unknown. Some CRSD a...

ConclusionsCommunity-based nurse-delivered infant sleep consultations aid infant sleep, improve maternal quality of life, and are cost-effective compared with usual care and lead to improvements in quality of life through a reduction in postnatal depression.
