Contribution of genetic variants to pain susceptibility in Parkinson disease
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess a potential association of genetic variants to PD‐related pain. Expand
Cannabis (Medical Marijuana) Treatment for Motor and Non–Motor Symptoms of Parkinson Disease: An Open-Label Observational Study
TLDR
The study suggests that cannabis might have a place in the therapeutic armamentarium of PD, with significant improvement of sleep and pain scores and no significant adverse effects of the drug were observed. Expand
Effect of medical cannabis on thermal quantitative measurements of pain in patients with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
This study assessed the effect of cannabis on motor symptoms and pain parameters in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Expand
Beneficial effect of levodopa therapy on stooped posture in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Findings suggest that levodopa does have a beneficial effect on anterior flexion of the thoracolumbar spine, and thus indicate that the disorder of stooped posture in PD is mediated, at least in part, by dopamine deficiency. Expand
The role of exposure to pesticides in the etiology of Parkinson’s disease: a 18F-DOPA positron emission tomography study
TLDR
Exposure to pesticides does not have an effect on the asymmetry pattern in the nigrostriatal system over non-exposure, suggesting that once the disease process is initiated in pesticide-exposed patients, the pathogenic mechanism does not differ from that of idiopathic PD. Expand
Levodopa and Posture - Quantification of Trunk Performance in Parkinson’s Disease (P3.063)
TLDR
Spinal mobility was significantly altered bylevodopa indicating a possible treatment effect of levodopa in anterior flexion of the thoracolumbar spine. Expand
Cannabis Smoking for Treatment of Parkinson's Disease (PD4.005)
TLDR
Cannabis holds promise as another treatment option for Parkinson9s disease because it can apparently alleviate not only the motor symptoms but also the non-motor symptoms, especially PD-related pain and sleep, thereby improving patient quality of life. Expand
