Safety and Tolerability of CS10BR05 Inj. in Subjects With Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple system atrophy is a neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system which is accompanied by signs of autonomic imbalance (orthostatic hypotension, urinary problems, erectile dysfunction), Parkinson's symptoms (movement decreases, limb tremors) and cerebellar ataxia symptoms (grogginess, pronounced incorrectly). It shows signs similar to Parkinson's disease, however, it doesn't show ...

Phase

The Swedish BioFINDER 2 Study

GENERAL AIMS: Develop methods for early and accurate diagnosis of different dementia disorders. This is important not only for the clinical diagnostic work-up, but also for selection of patients to clinical trials. Because dementia is very common among the elderly, but often misdiagnosed, we need to develop minimally invasive, reliable ...

More Than a Movement Disorder: Applying Palliative Care to Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative illness affecting approximately 1.5 million Americans and is the 14th leading cause of death in the United States. PD is traditionally described as a movement disorder with characteristic motor symptoms (e.g. tremor). However, more recent research demonstrates the impact of nonmotor ...

The Neural Basis for Frontotemporal Degeneration

Comparative and longitudinal studies reveal clinical differences between subgroups of patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD), including Progressive Non-fluent Aphasia (PNFA), Semantic Dementia (SD), patients with a disorder of social comportment and personality (SOC), and non-aphasic patients with executive dysfunction (EXEC). MRI studies of cortical atrophy and fMRI studies show correlated ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Midodrine and Droxidopa on Splanchnic Capacitance in Autonomic Failure

Patients with multiple system atrophy, pure autonomic failure or Parkinson disease, and orthostatic hypotension will be studied in a randomized, double-blind, 2-arm parallel design to compare the effects of droxidopa and midodrine on stoke volume during head up tilt. A total of 34 participants will be enrolled in the study ...

Natural History Study of Synucleinopathies

-synuclein is a small protein of 140 amino acids that is highly expressed in the brain. It's function remains poorly understood.10 Synucleinopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases associated with the abnormal accumulation of -synuclein within cytoplasmic inclusions in neurons or oligodendroglia. These -synuclein containing cytoplasmic aggregates occur throughout the ...

Overnight Trials With Heat Stress in Autonomic Failure Patients With Supine Hypertension

Primary autonomic failure is a neurodegenerative condition characterized by loss of efferent sympathetic function and severe baroreflex impairment. The clinical hallmark of autonomic failure is disabling orthostatic hypotension, but at least half of patients are also hypertensive while lying down. This supine hypertension can be severe and associated with end-organ ...

Hemodynamic Mechanisms of Abdominal Compression in the Treatment of Orthostatic Hypotension in Autonomic Failure

Patients with autonomic failure are characterized by disabling orthostatic hypotension (low blood pressure on standing) due to severe impairment of the autonomic nervous system. Compression garments such as waist-high stockings and abdominal binders have been shown to improve orthostatic hypotension in these patients. The purpose of this study is to ...

Phase

Reduction in Splanchnic Capacitance Contributes to Sympathetically Dependent Hypertension in Autonomic

The investigators will study male and female subjects, age 40-80 years with possible or probable Multiple System Atrophy, as defined by Consensus Criteria who suffer from supine hypertension defined as SBP150, and neurogenic orthostatic hypotension, defined as a 30-mmHg decrease in systolic BP within 3 minutes of standing associated with ...

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

There are a group of neurodegenerative disorders which are often initially diagnosed to be Parkinson's disease (PD), but which are biologically and clinically distinct, and follow a malignant disease course. The three most common conditions are PSP, CBD and MSA. These conditions have a median survival of approximately 6-7 years ...
