Gocovri treatment decreases dyskinesia and off times in patients with Parkinson’s disease

Posted by on Jun 16, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effectiveness of Gocovri (amantadine) in the treatment of dyskinesia (DYS) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Researchers suggested that this treatment improves DYS symptoms. Some background PD affects brain cells. The abilities controlled by these cells are lost, such as muscle function and...

Suicide rates after deep brain stimulation in patients with Parkinson’s disease

Posted by on Jun 7, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated suicide (the act of causing one’s own death) rates after deep brain stimulation (DBS) in patients with Parkinson's disease. Researchers suggested that suicide can occur in these patients up to 3 years after DBS. Some background Parkinson's disease (PD) affects certain brain cells. These cells...

Does singing improve communication in patients with Parkinson’s disease?

Posted by on May 31, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effects of singing in the treatment of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Researchers suggested that singing can increase voice and respiratory function in these patients. Some background Parkinson disease attacks certain brain cells. The body functions controlled by those cells, such as muscle...

Do speech difficulties have a predictive value in Parkinson’s disease outcomes?

Posted by on May 31, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated speech (talking) symptoms in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Researchers suggested that these symptoms are associated with low levels of dopamine and poorer outcomes. Some background Parkinson's disease (PD) affects brain cells and dopamine levels. This can cause tremors, muscle rigidity or...

Posted by on May 21, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effects of dance on treating the symptoms of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Researchers suggested that dance might improve the symptoms of these patients. Some background Parkinson disease is a chronic disease that affects mainly older populations. This disease affects the brain cells causing...

Non-invasive brain stimulation improves freezing of gait in patients with Parkinson’s disease

Posted by on Apr 25, 2019 in Parkinson's Disease | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effect of non-invasive brain stimulation (NIBS) in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Researchers suggested that NIBS showed a positive effect on these patients. Some background Parkinson's disease (PD) affects certain brain cells. The symptoms can go from muscle rigidity and tremors to impaired...
