Nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) may emerge secondary to the underlying pathogenesis of the disease, while others are recognized side effects of treatment. Inevitably, there is an overlap as the disease advances and patients require higher dosages and more complex medical regimens. The non-motor symptoms that emerge secondary to dopaminergic(More)
Limited data compares clinical profiles of Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD). Twenty-one mildly demented ambulatory LBD subjects were individually matched by MMSE score with 21 AD subjects and by UPDRS motor score with 21 PD subjects. Matched by age, gender, education, and race, pairs were compared using(More)
INTRODUCTION Differential diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Parkinson's disease with dementia (PDD), Parkinson's disease (PD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) is challenging. Comparative motor profiles of these neurodegenerative disorders may aid in earlier diagnosis but have not been extensively studied. METHODS Groups were rigorously matched by(More)
INTRODUCTION Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. Increasing evidence shows that physical exercise is beneficial for motor and non-motor symptoms of PD, and animal models suggest that it may help slow progression of disease. METHODS Using a randomized delayed-start design, 31 patients were randomized to an early start group(More)
