Accuracy and Reliability of Onset Detection Algorithms in Gait Initiation for Healthy Controls and Participants With Parkinson's Disease.

Accuracy and Reliability of Onset Detection Algorithms in Gait Initiation for Healthy Controls and Participants With Parkinson's Disease. J Appl Biomech. 2019 Oct 18;:1-8 Authors: Chen A, Selvaraj S, Krishnan V, Asgari S Abstract Accurate and reliable detection of the onset of gait initiation is essential for the correct assessment of gait. Thus, this study was aimed at evaluation of the reliability and accuracy of 3 different center of pressure-based gait onset detection algorithms: A displacement baseline-based algorithm (method 1), a velocity baseline-based algorithm (method 2), and a velocity extrema-based algorithm (method 3). The center of pressure signal was obtained during 10 gait initiation trials from 16 healthy participants and 3 participants with Parkinson's disease. Intrasession and absolute reliability of each algorithm was assessed using the intraclass correlation coefficient and the coefficient of variation of center of pressure displacement during the postural phase of gait initiation. The accuracy was evaluated using the time error of the detected onset by each algorithm relative to that of visual inspection. The authors' results revealed that although all 3 algorithms had high to very high intrasession reliabilities in both healthy subjects and subjects with Parkinson's disease, methods 2 and 3 showed significantly better absolute reliability than method 1 in healthy controls (P = .001). Furthermore, method 2 outperformed the other 2 al...

However, as the results yielded by this increased research have hitherto conflicted, we performed an updated meta-analysis of reports on the relationships between VDR polymorphisms and PD published before October 2019 that we collected from the PUBMED, EMBASE, EBSCO, China N...

FotiadisAbstractTracking symptoms progression in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a laborious endeavor as the disease can be expressed with vastly different phenotypes, forcing clinicians to follow a multi-parametric approach in patient evaluation, looking for not only motor symptomatology but also non-motor complications, including cognitive decline, sleep problems and mood disturbances. Being neurodegenerative in nature, ...

In this study, platinum electrodes were fabricated on the bio-based poly(ethylene terephthalate) (Bio-PET) substrates for the development of flexible electrochemical sensors for the detection of Parkinson's disease biomarkers. Dopamine was detected by voltammetric measurements, displaying a 3.5 × 10−5 mol L−1 to 8.0 × 10−4 mol L−1 linear range with a limit of detection of 5.1 × 10−6 mol L−1. Parkinson's disease protein 7 (PARK7/DJ-1) was successfully detected by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy after elec...

Authors: Quarracino C, Otero-Losada M, Capani F, Pérez-Lloret S Abstract Introduction: Autonomic dysfunction is one of the most frequent and disabling non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD). It includes, among others, orthostatic hypotension (OH), sialorrhea, constipation, erectile dysfunction (ED), urinary dysfunction, and diaphoresis. They are usually under-recognized and suboptimally managed.Areas covered: Recommended treatments for dysautonomias are summarized with a description of the mechanism of action and observed results. The pathophysiology of each disorder is reviewed to pinpoint possible ...

AbstractThe discovery of genes involved in familial as well as sporadic forms of Parkinson disease (PD) constitutes an important milestone in understanding this disorder's pathophysiology and potential treatment. Among these genes,GBA1 is one of the most common and well ‐studied, but it is still unclear how mutations inGBA1 translate into an increased risk for developing PD. In this review, we provide an overview of the biochemical and structural relationship betweenGBA1 and PD to help understand the recent advances in the development of PD therapies intended to target this pathway.
