Phosphatase and tensin homolog-induced putative kinase 1 gene mutations have been associated with autosomal recessive early-onset Parkinson's disease. To date, no neuropathological reports have been published from patients with Parkinson's disease with both phosphatase and tensin homolog-induced putative kinase 1 gene copies mutated. We analysed the coding(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the dopaminergic neuronal imaging features of different subtypes of genetic Parkinson's Disease. METHODS A retrospective study of genetic Parkinson's diseases cases in which DaTSCAN (123I-FP-CIT) had been performed. Specific non-displaceable binding was calculated for bilateral caudate and putamen for each case. The right:left(More)
Mutations in PINK1 and PARKIN cause recessive, early-onset Parkinson's disease (PD). Together, these two proteins orchestrate a protective mitophagic response that ensures the safe disposal of damaged mitochondria. The kinase PINK1 phosphorylates ubiquitin (Ub) at the conserved residue S65, in addition to modifying the E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Many patients who have had Parkinson's disease (PD) for several years will present severe motor fluctuations and dyskinesias which require more aggressive therapies. The different approaches which are now available include deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus or medial globus pallidus, subcutaneous infusion of apomorphine, and(More)
Mutations in PINK1 (PARK6), a serine/threonine kinase involved in mitochondrial homeostasis, are associated with early onset Parkinson’s disease. Fibroblasts from Parkinson’s disease patients with compound heterozygous mutations in exon 7 (c.1488 + 1G > A; c.1252_1488del) showed no apparent signs of mitochondrial impairment. To elucidate changes primarily(More)
BACKGROUND Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder causing motor and non-motor symptoms that can affect independence, social adjustment and the quality of life (QoL) of both patients and caregivers. Studies designed to find diagnostic and/or progression biomarkers of PD are needed. We describe here the study protocol of(More)
AIM To assess long-term effectiveness and tolerability of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) in Spanish patients with advanced Parkinson's disease. PATIENTS & METHODS This was an observational, multicenter, cross-sectional, retrospective study. RESULTS Data of 177 patients were analyzed. LCIG treatment led to a reduction in the percentage of daily(More)
Erratum to: COPPADIS-2015 (COhort of Patients with PArkinson's DIsease in Spain, 2015), a global –clinical evaluations, serum biomarkers, genetic studies and neuroimaging– prospective, multicenter, non-interventional, long-term study on Parkinson's disease progression Erratum After publication of the original article [1], it has come to the authors'(More)
Current available treatment for Parkinson disease has many drawbacks: single action on the nigrostriatal pathway, no halt of disease progression, pulsatile dopaminergic stimulation, complex treatment regimens, and motor complications. Compliance with treatment may be irregular in a variable number of patients. Factors such as age, education, complexity of(More)
