MDS clinical diagnostic criteria for Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The Movement Disorder Society PD Criteria retain motor parkinsonism as the core feature of the disease, defined as bradykinesia plus rest tremor or rigidity, and two levels of certainty are delineated: clinically established PD and probable PD.
Basal ganglia functional connectivity based on a meta-analysis of 126 positron emission tomography and functional magnetic resonance imaging publications.
TLDR
The patterns of functional connectivity between the cortex and the different striatal nuclei are broadly consistent with the predictions of the parallel loop model and the rostrocaudal and dorsoventral patterns of corticostriatal functional connectivity are consistent with a tripartite division of the striatum into motor, associative, and limbic zones.
Diagnosis and management of dementia with Lewy bodies
The Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) Consortium has refined its recommendations about the clinical and pathologic diagnosis of DLB, updating the previous report, which has been in widespread use for
MDS research criteria for prodromal Parkinson's disease
TLDR
These criteria represent a first step in the formal delineation of early stages of PD and will require constant updating as more information becomes available.
Quantifying the risk of neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder
TLDR
The risk of developing neurodegenerative disease in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder is substantial, with the majority of patients developing Parkinson disease and Lewy body dementia.
Severity of REM atonia loss in idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder predicts Parkinson disease
TLDR
In patients with REM sleep behavior disorder initially free of neurodegenerative disease, the severity of REM atonia loss on baseline polysomnogram predicts the development of Parkinson disease.
Time to Redefine PD? Introductory Statement of the MDS Task Force on the Definition of Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
A task force to consider a redefinition of Parkinson's disease identified several critical issues that challenge current PD definitions, and there is a need to create new MDS diagnostic criteria that take these changes in disease definition into consideration.
Mild cognitive impairment in rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder and Parkinson's disease
To investigate the frequency and subtypes of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in idiopathic rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) in association with RBD.
