Multifunctional Substrate for Early Detection of Oxidative Stress Susceptibility and Application to Parkinson's Disease

Since alterations in mitochondrial functions in platelets and lymphocytes have been detected in Parkinson's disease we plan to monitor the metabolism a a new molecule (LTG) in the blood samples of Parkinson's disease patients and compare them to controls. We shall use 10 cc of venous blood and analyze serum, ...

Phase N/A

Evaluate the Effectiveness and Safety of Variable Frequency Stimulation Compared With Constant Frequency Stimulation for Patients With Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease

In advanced stages of PD, motor symptoms and dyskinesia are effectively treated by deep brain stimulation (DBS) targeting the subthalamic nucleus (STN) . Traditionally, in this procedure, stimulation is set to a constant frequency electrical stimulation with the physician programming the parameters of stimulation frequency, pulse width and amplitude, and ...

Phase N/A

Post-Physical Therapy Extension of In-Home Dynamic Standing Table Use in Parkinson Disease

Axial motor dysfunctions in Parkinson disease (PD) are least responsive to dopaminergic therapy and incline many patients towards a sedentary lifestyle. This places PD patients at increased risk for the negative consequences of physical inactivity. When PD patients develop postural imbalance and gait difficulties, including falls, they are generally referred ...

Phase N/A

Subthalamic Nucleus Connectivity in Parkinson's Disease With Ultra-high Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging

The purpose of this study is to investigate the segregation of the subthalamic nucleus into its motor and non-motor regions in patients with Parkinson's disease and healthy controls with the aid of ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging.

Phase N/A

Comparison of the Incidence of Dyskinesia in Parkinson`s Disease Who Were Treated With Amantadine or Dopamine Agonist

Dopamine agonist can delay the risk of dyskinesia by initiating treatment rather than levodopa. Amantadine is typical antidyskinetic drug. There is no data about comparison of risk of dyskinesia in amantadine and dopamine agonist by initiating treatment. Prospective , randomized, open label study compare the onset time and severity of ...

Phase N/A

Treatment of Apomorphine-induced Skin Reactions: a Pilot Study

Skin reactions as a result of continuous subcutaneous apomorphine infusion occur frequently and interfere with the absorption of apomorphine. The histopathology of apomorphine-induced skin reactions is poorly understood. Therefore treatment options are limited and suggestive. Objective: to investigate the efficacy of four treatments including massage, dilution of apomorphine, treatment with ...


Gait and REM Sleep Behavior Disorder

Many people with idiopathic rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behavior disorder (RBD) have an underlying synucleinopathy, the most common of which are Parkinson's disease (PD) and Lewy body disease. Identifying additional abnormal clinical features may help in identifying those at greater risk of evolving to a more severe syndrome. Because ...

Phase N/A

Safety and Efficacy Study of Human ESC-derived Neural Precursor Cells in the Treatment of Parkinson's Disease

This study is a Phase I/II, open-label, non randomized clinical trial. The study will enroll 50 patients for cell injection, administering a single dose of neural precursor cells by stereotaxic intra-striatal injection.


Long-term Stability of LFP Recorded From the STN and the Effects of DBS

Study Design and Methods Ten Parkinson's disease (PD) patients who are scheduled for bilateral STN DBS will be recruited. DBS surgery will be performed at the Toronto Western Hospital as per standard clinical care. The studies will be performed at two sites: Toronto Western Hospital and London Mobility Laboratory at ...


Foot Dystonia Treatment by Botulinum Toxin Injections in Parkinson Disease : Efficiency of Injections Made in Extrinsic Muscle (Flexor Digitorum Longus Muscle) Compared to Intrinsic Muscle (Flexor Digitorum Brevis or Quadratus Plantae Muscles)

Study progress : After an inclusion visit, patients are randomized in one of the 3 following groups : - First group (PL : placebo) : - J0 : Patient will receive 1 injection of placebo in the Flexor digitorum longus and 1 injection of placebo in the Flexor digitorum brevis ...
