  • xxx Journal of Parkinson's Disease Volume 3 Issue 1A summary of articles in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease 2013 Volume 3 Issue 1 01 April 2013
  • Clasped hands Recognition of facial and musical emotions in Parkinson's diseaseResults showed that the PD group was significantly impaired for recognition of both fear and sadness emotions from facial expressions, whereas their performance in recognition of emotions from musical excerpts was not different from that of the control group. The scores of fear and sadness recognition from faces were neither correlated to scores in tests for executive and cognitive functions, nor to scores in self-assessment scales. 01 March 2013
  • Quality of Life Friends Couple walking in woods Parkinson's disease and osteoporosisConclusion: bone loss in PD is multifactorial. It is clinically important because of the concomitant risk of fractures. Screening for osteoporosis should be considered more often, and therapeutic interventions should be initiated. 01 March 2013
  • Headache Pain Pain in Parkinson disease: A review of the literatureAlthough pain is one of the non-motor symptoms most frequency experienced by patients, it is often under recognized and inadequately treated in contrast to motor symptoms Multicenter studies are needed that include a large cohort of subjects evaluated in multiple dimensions including pain in order to obtain more data and to allow improved management of pain in patients with PD. 01 March 2013
  • Parkinson's Disease Impact of Duodopa on Quality of Life in Advanced Parkinson's Disease: A UK Case SeriesIn this study, authors describe the outcome of 12 PD patients with PD related complications started on LCIG, with respect to their quality of life measured by a disease specific validated scalethe PDQ39, together with diaries recording time spent On, Off, Dyskinetic, or Asleep. 31 January 2013
  • Brain skeleton activity Stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus at an earlier disease stage of Parkinson's disease: Concept and standards of the EARLYSTIThe methodological innovation for DBS-studies of this study lies in novel procedures developed and used for monitoring best medical treatment, neurosurgical consistency, best management of stimulation programming, blinded video assessment of motor disability, and prevention of suicidal behaviors. 30 January 2013
  • Parkinson's Disease High Prevalence of Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease in Parkinson's Disease: A Questionnaire-Based StudyThis study suggests that GERD is prevalent in PD. Deterioration of daily living activities and other nonmotor symptoms can imply the presence of GERD. Because clinical symptoms of GERD are usually treatable, the management can improve the patient's quality of life. 15 January 2013
  • Quality of Life Friends Couple walking in woods New horizons in the pathogenesis, assessment and management of movement disordersIn this review authors outline recent advances in our understanding of the movement disorders which geriatricians encounter in their clinical practice. 01 January 2013
  • Man with stick Asymmetry and freezing of gait in parkinsonian patientsStudy data support a direct involvement of the asymmetry of gait in the development of FOG in PD. Treadmill training is effective in improving gait and balance in PD FOG+ patients and this might be related to a reduction of asymmetric gait. 01 January 2013
  • Clasped hands Parkinson's Disease and Sleep/Wake DisturbancesFor years nonmotor symptoms received little attention from clinicians and researchers, but now these symptoms are known to be significant predictors of morbidity in determining quality of life, costs of disease, and rates of institutionalization. A discussion of the clinical aspects, pathophysiology, evaluation techniques, and treatment options for the sleep disorders that are encountered with PD is presented. 30 December 2012
