Unstructured Eye Tracking as a Diagnostic and Prognostic Biomarker in Parkinsonian

Design: We will ask a large number of people with PD and atypical parkinsonism to watch very brief video clips while we record eye movements and pupil responses. This is like changing the television channel every few seconds and observing what happens to a person's eyes as they search the new clip. We will compare these results between different disease groups and correlate them with clinical features of ...

Establishing 18F PMPBB3 (APN 1607) PET Imaging, Genetic and Plasma Biomarkers for Risk Identification, Disease Progression and Prognosis of Tauopathy Related Parkinsonism s Yndromes

Summary: Parkinson's disease (PD) is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders. The diagnosis of PD is primarily based on clinical presentations while the pathology stage of a-synuclein containing Lewy body deposition has already advanced. In addition to PD, there is another group of patients presenting with parkinsonism features mixed with other neurodegenerative symptoms. Pathologically, patient...

ARTFL LEFFTDS Longitudinal Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ALLFTD)

Summary: ARTFL LEFFTDS Longitudinal Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (ALLFTD) represents the formalized integration of ARTFL (U54 NS092089; funded through 2019) and LEFFTDS (U01 AG045390; funded through 2019) as a single North American research consortium to study FTLD for 2019 and beyond.

Building Online Community to Improve Patient and Caregiver Outcomes in Parkinson Disease, Lewy Body Dementia and Related Disorders

Summary: The purpose of this study is to learn more about the effectiveness of palliative care training for community physicians and telemedicine support services for patients and carepartners with Parkinson's disease and Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) or related conditions and their care partners. Palliative care is a treatment approach focused on improving quality of life by relieving suffering in the areas of...

Assessing Skin Biomarkers for Preclinical Diagnosis of PD and Non-PD Parkinsonism

Summary: The purpose of this study is to determine whether identification of misfolded proteins in the skin will help to determine what sort of parkinsonism someone has. We seek to demonstrate whether someone has a synucleinopathy such as Parkinson's disease (PD), multiple system atrophy (MSA), or dementia with Lewy bodies(DLB), as opposed to a tauopathy such as progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) or cort...

Modifiable Variables in Parkinsonism (MVP) [Formerly CAM Care in PD]

Summary: We are trying to identify factors associated with improved quality of life and fewer PD symptoms. We are attempting to identify practices, beliefs, and therapies used by individuals who report excellent quality of life, few PD symptoms, and reduced rates of progression. After agreeing to participate, we will ask participants to fill our questionnaires about their experience with PD, their health i...

Multicenter Study of Blood Biomarkers of Mitochondrial and Peroxisomal Metabolism to Differentiate Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease From Related Conditions

Summary: With the aging of the population due to an increase in longevity, the number of people with Parkinson's disease is increasing (166,712 in France, as of December 31, 2015) and the number of patients with motor or cognitive-behavioral disorders is already a major public health challenge (1). In neurodegenerative diseases, the current strategy is to identify the disease early and, if possible, to con...

Biomarkers in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Summary: With the increase in life expectancy of our population due to advancement of medical diagnosis and treatments, the incidence of age dependent neurodegenerative diseases increased, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), parkinsonian syndromes (PS), small vessel disease (SVD) and motor neuron disease (MND). In spite of the progress of knowing the pathogenesis of various neurodegenerative diseases at mo...

The Four-Repeat Tauopathy Neuroimaging Initiative

Summary: The goal of this study is to identify the most reliable methods of analysis for tracking CBD, PSP, and o/vPSP over time. The results from this study may be used in the future to calculate statistical power for clinical drug trials. The study will also provide information about the relative value of novel imaging techniques for diagnosis, as well as the value of imaging techniques versus testing of...

Mapping Functional Networks of Brain Activity (Brain Network Activation, BNA) Based on Analysis of Evoked Response Potential (ERP) EEG Signals in Patients With Movement Disorders

Summary: The diagnosis and management of movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease (PD), parkinson-plus syndromes (PPS), dystonia, essential tremor (ET), normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and others is challenging given the lack of objective diagnostic and monitoring tools with high sensitivity and specificity. A cornerstone in research of neurological disorders manifesting as MDi is the investigat...

The Swedish BioFINDER 2 Study

Summary: The Swedish BioFINDER 2 study is a new study that will launch in 2017 and extends the previous cohorts of BioFINDER 1 study ( BioFINDER 1 is used e.g. to characterize the role of beta-amyloid pathology in early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) using amyloid-PET (18F-Flutemetamol) and Aβ analysis in cerebrospinal fluid samples. The BioFINDER 1 study has resulted in more than ...

PROgressive Supranuclear Palsy CorTico-Basal Syndrome Multiple System Atrophy Longitudinal Study UK

Summary: Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Cortico-Basal Degeneration (CBD) and Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) are degenerative brain conditions for which there are currently no curative treatments. To aid the development of new treatment trials, there is a pressing need to develop better methods for diagnosing these conditions early, and to track disease progression. The PROSPECT-M-UK study will collec...
