Dystonia Genotype-Phenotype Correlation

Identify a cohort of individuals with known dystonia-related gene mutations, and individuals with idiopathic but presumed-genetic dystonia. Some of these individuals may receive botulinum toxin injections to treat their dystonia per standard of care; in these patients, investigators will image before and after injections to assess for imaging correlates of ...

Phase N/A

Imaging Blood Brain Imaging Dysfunction in Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the most common neurodegenerative movement disorder of aging. Its cause is unknown. Current evidence supports a stress-diathesis model of pathogenesis whereby some yet-to-be identified environmental trigger conspires with a permissive genetic background to initiate the disease process. Based on neuropathological observations in other neurodegenerative diseases, such ...

Phase N/A

Validation of the Zigzag Tracking Task Test for the Evaluation of Handwriting Difficulties in Writer's Cramp

Writer's cramp (WC) is a task specific dystonia that occurs from the moment patient starts writing. It leads to partial or complete inability to use the hand only during the handwriting gesture. It is characterized by the appearance of cramps or spasms of certain muscles of the hand and/or forearm. ...

Phase N/A

Next Generation Sequencing Diagnostics - On the Road to Rapid Diagnostics for Rare Diseases

In the study NextGen SE (single-center, prospective, open diagnostic study) are on-hand a cohort comprising each 50 pediatric and 50 adult patients, and in which there are an unclear movement disorder or an unclear cognitive disorder, examines the following questions: Primary Number of diagnoses made by next-generation sequencing (NGS) Secondary ...

Phase N/A

Physiological Brain Atlas Development

Purpose To create a brain atlas that will allow physiological and clinical information to be assigned to anatomical locations in MRI space, utilizing non-rigid MRI normalization algorithms. These data will specifically be acquired from the population of patients undergoing stereotactic brain procedures. 2. To collate and analyze the brain data ...

Phase N/A

Real World Evaluation Screening Study and Registry of Dyskinesia in Patients Taking Antipsychotic Agents

Prospective study to quantify the prevalence of possible tardive dyskinesia (TD) in outpatient psychiatry practices in the United States (US), as well as to describe the associated disease burden in a cohort of patients with one or more psychiatric disorders and a cumulative lifetime exposure to antipsychotic medication of three ...

Phase N/A

Registry of Deep Brain Stimulation With the VERCISE System for Treatment of Dystonia: Vercise DBS Dystonia Registry

To compile characteristics of real-world outcomes of Boston Scientific Corporation's commercially approved VerciseTM Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems for the treatment of dystonia. Subjects' improvement in disease symptoms and overall Quality of life will be assessed.

Phase N/A

The Dystonia Coalition Natural History and Biospecimen Repository for Isolated Dystonias

This collaborative, international effort has one primary goal. This is to create a biospecimen repository and associated clinical database to be used as a resource for dystonia and related disease research. Across sites, the investigators hope to enroll at least 5,000 adult patients. Subjects of this study will be asked ...

Phase N/A

Human Movement Database

The purpose of this study is to develop a database of normative and adaptive control strategies for human motion. Up to 900 volunteers will serve as subjects after they complete a neuromusculoskeletal screening exam. Subjects will be asked to perform one or more tasks related to the execution of activities ...

Phase N/A

Phenotype/Genotype Correlations in Movement Disorders

Objective The goal of this protocol is to identify families with inherited movement disorders and evaluate disease manifestations to establish an accurate clinical diagnosis, and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms. Studies of inherited movement disorders in large families with good genealogical records are especially valuable. Additionally, the plan is ...
