Quantitative acoustic measurements for characterization of speech and voice disorders in early untreated Parkinson's disease.
It was found that measurement of the fundamental frequency variations applied to two selected tasks was the best method for separating healthy from PD subjects and it has been demonstrated that 78% of early untreated PD subjects indicate some form of vocal impairment. Expand
Survey on cannabis use in Parkinson's disease: Subjective improvement of motor symptoms
An anonymous questionnaire sent to all patients attending the Prague Movement Disorder Centre revealed that 25% of 339 respondents had taken cannabis and 45.9% of these described some form ofExpand
Measurement instruments to assess posture, gait, and balance in Parkinson's disease: Critique and recommendations
This MDS‐commissioned task force assessed clinimetric properties of existing rating scales, questionnaires, and timed tests that assess features in Parkinson's disease. Expand
Imprecise vowel articulation as a potential early marker of Parkinson's disease: effect of speaking task.
Impaired vowel articulation may be considered as a possible early marker of PD because complex tasks such as monologue are more likely to elicit articulatory deficits in parkinsonian speech, compared to other speaking tasks. Expand
Selecting deep brain stimulation or infusion therapies in advanced Parkinson’s disease: an evidence-based review
A group of experts knowledgeable in all three therapies reviewed the currently available literature for each treatment and identified variables of clinical relevance for choosing one of the three options such as type of motor problems, age, and cognitive and psychiatric status. Expand
Diagnostic exome sequencing in early‐onset Parkinson's disease confirms VPS13C as a rare cause of autosomal‐recessive Parkinson's disease
Despite the low diagnostic yield of exome sequencing in sporadic early‐onset PD, the confirmation of the recently discovered VPS13C gene highlights its advantage over using predefined gene panels. Expand
EFNS/MDS‐ES recommendations for the diagnosis of Parkinson's disease
A Task Force was convened by the EFNS/MDS‐ES Scientist Panel on Parkinson's disease (PD) and other movement disorders to systemically review relevant publications on the diagnosis of PD.
A new botulinum toxin type A free of complexing proteins for treatment of cervical dystonia
A new botulinum toxin type A free of complexing proteins (NT 201) was compared with BOTOX in patients with cervical dystonia by means of a double-blind noninferiority trial and shows that NT 201 is at least as effective and safe as BotoX. Expand
Repetitive TMS of the somatosensory cortex improves writer's cramp and enhances cortical activity.
1 Hz rTMS of the SI cortex can improve writer's cramp while increasing the cortical activity in both hemispheres, reflecting the impact of somatosensory system on active motion control. Expand
Electromagnetic field of mobile phones affects visual event related potential in patients with narcolepsy.
The electromagnetic field of MP may suppress the excessive sleepiness and improve performance while solving a monotonous cognitive task requiring sustained attention and vigilance. Expand
