          Impulse control disorders in Parkinson’s disease: A systematic review on the psychometric properties of the existing measures

          https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0217700

          A significant percentage of patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease (PD) experience Impulse Control Disorders (ICDs), contributing to reduced quality of life. As they can be managed by reducing the dopamine dosage, the detection of their presence is crucial for PD treatment plan. Nevertheless, they tend to be under-recognized in clinical practice, since routine screening is not common–despite existing instruments that may support clinicians. This work presents a systematic review on the psychometric properties of instruments measuring ICDs in PD, to test whether clinicians dispose of valid tools that may help them in clinical assessment.

            The burden of care and the understanding of disease in Parkinson’s disease

            https://journals.plos.org/plosone/ar...l.pone.0217581

            Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease causing the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, which chronically progresses [1]. Early PD patients undergoing medical treatment do not have significant difficulty in daily living, but patients with advanced PD experience difficulties in basic daily living activities due to various motor and non-motor symptoms, and the disability in daily living continually increases with progression of the disease [1,2]. Specific motor symptoms of PD, including bradykinesia, tremor, rigidity, and gait disturbance, are readily apparent to patients and caregivers, but their interests in and recognition of non-motor symptoms, including gastrointestinal symptoms, cognitive/emotional disorder, autonomic disturbance, and pain are lower [3]. In particular, the non-motor symptoms of PD have been identified as factors that increase burden of care and lower the quality of life more than the motor symptoms [4,5]. This finding has also been confirmed by a report showing that the non-motor symptoms may be the key factors that reduce the quality of life, even in early stages of the disease [6]. Therefore, proper understanding and recognition of the disease by PD patients and caregivers may be improved by providing more knowledge about the disease itself, and lack of understanding of the disease may have a negative effect on the care of PD patients [7,8].

              Transneuronal Propagation of Pathologic α-Synuclein from the Gut to the Brain Models Parkinson’s Disease

              https://www.cell.com/neuron/fulltext...T+Newsletters=


              The Braak hypothesis posits that α-syn pathology can spread in a stereotyped fashion from the gastrointestinal tract via the vagus nerve to the ventral midbrain, where it selectively kills dopamine (DA) neurons of the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc).

                Neuronal Parkinson inclusions are different than expected

                https://www.sciencedaily.com/release...0626124941.htm

                An international team of researchers challenges the conventional understanding of the cause of Parkinson's disease. The researchers have shown that the inclusions in the brain's neurons, characteristic of Parkinson's disease, are comprised of a membranous medley rather than protein fibrils.
