  • Short Versus Conventional Pulse-Width Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease : A Randomized Crossover Comparison
  • 2020
  • Ingår i: Movement Disorders. - : John Wiley & Sons. - 0885-3185 .- 1531-8257. ; 35:1, s. 101-108

    • Background: Subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation (STN-DBS) is an effective therapy for selected Parkinson's disease patients with motor fluctuations, but can adversely affect speech and axial symptoms. The use of short pulse width (PW) has been shown to expand the therapeutic window acutely, but its utility in reducing side effects in chronic STN-DBS patients has not been evaluated. Objective To compare the effect of short PW settings using 30-mu s with conventional 60-mu s settings on stimulation-induced dysarthria in Parkinson's disease patients with previously implanted STN-DBS systems.Methods: In this single-center, double-blind, randomized crossover trial, we assigned 16 Parkinson's disease patients who had been on STN-DBS for a mean of 6.5 years and exhibited moderate dysarthria to 30-mu s or 60-mu s settings for 4 weeks followed by the alternative PW setting for a further 4 weeks. The primary outcome was difference in dysarthric speech measured by the Sentence Intelligibility Test between study baseline and the 2 PW conditions. Secondary outcomes included motor, nonmotor, and quality of life measures.Results: There was no difference in the Sentence Intelligibility Test scores between baseline and the 2 treatment conditions (P = 0.25). There were also no differences noted in motor, nonmotor, or quality of life scores. The 30-mu s settings were well tolerated, and adverse event rates were similar to those at conventional PW settings. Post hoc analysis indicated that patients with dysarthria and a shorter duration of DBS may be improved by short PW stimulation.Conclusions: Short PW settings using 30 mu s did not alter dysarthric speech in chronic STN-DBS patients. A future study should evaluate whether patients with shorter duration of DBS may be helped by short PW settings.

  • The relation between cognition and motor dysfunction in drug-naive newly diagnosed patients with parkinson's disease
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Movement Disorders. - New York, N.Y. : Raven Press. - 0885-3185 .- 1531-8257. ; 26:12, s. 2183-2189

    • Recent studies have reported cognitive decline to be common in the early phase of Parkinson's disease. Imaging data connect working memory and executive functioning to the dopamine system. It has also been suggested that bradykinesia is the clinical manifestation most closely related to the nigrostriatal lesion. Exploring the relationship between motor dysfunction and cognition can help us find shared or overlapping systems serving different functions. This relationship has been sparsely investigated in population-based studies of untreated Parkinson's disease. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between motor signs and cognitive performance in the early stages of Parkinson's disease before the intake of dopaminergic medication. Patients were identified in a population-based study of incident cases with idiopathic parkinsonism. Patients with the postural instability and gait disturbances phenotype were compared with patients with the tremor-dominant phenotype on demographics and cognitive measures. Associations between cognitive and motor scores were investigated, with age, education, and sex controlled for. Bradykinesia was associated with working memory and mental flexibility, whereas axial signs were associated with episodic memory and visuospatial functioning. No significant differences in the neuropsychological variables were found between the postural instability and gait disturbances phenotype and the tremor phenotype. Our results indicate a shared system for slow movement and inflexible thinking that may be controlled by a dopaminergic network different from dopaminergic networks involved in tremor and/or rigidity. The association between axial signs and memory and visuospatial function may point to overlapping systems or pathologies related to these abilities.(C) 2011 Movement Disorder Society

  • Anhidrosis in multiple system atrophy: a preganglionic sudomotor dysfunction?
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Movement disorders : official journal of the Movement Disorder Society. - : Wiley. - 1531-8257. ; 23:6, s. 885-8

    • Anhidrosis occurs in the majority of multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients but the underlying site of lesion is not well established. We describe three patients with long-standing MSA and anhidrosis diagnosed on the basis of a thermoregulatory sweating test. In biopsies of anhidrotic skin, immunofluorescence analysis disclosed a well preserved postganglionic sudomotor innervation in all three patients supporting the hypothesis of a preganglionic nerve fiber lesion underlying their anhidrosis. Postganglionic sudomotor fiber integrity was also confirmed by normal electrodermal responses in one patient, whereas such responses and microneurographically detectable skin sympathetic nerve activity were absent in the other two MSA patients, suggesting a functional inactivity of structurally intact postganglionic sympathetic skin fibers.

  • Seeding of protein aggregation causes cognitive impairment in rat model of cortical synucleinopathy
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Movement Disorders. - : John Wiley & Sons Inc.. - 0885-3185 .- 1531-8257. ; 34:11, s. 1699-1710
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Background: Cortical α-synuclein pathology plays a role in the development of cognitive dysfunction in both Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies, although the causative cellular lesions have remained unclear. We aimed to address causal links between α-synuclein-driven pathology in the cerebral cortex and the development of cognitive impairments using new experimental models. Methods: Neuronal overexpression of human α-synuclein was induced in the rat medial prefrontal cortex using viral vectors. This was combined with inoculations of preformed fibrils of human α-synuclein in some animals. Rats were evaluated with tests probing prefrontal cognitive functions (delayed matching/nonmatching to position and 5-choice serial reaction time task). Patterns of neuropathology were characterized immunohistochemically. Results: Neither α-synuclein overexpression nor the fibril seeds alone yielded any behavioral phenotype. In contrast, combining the 2 approaches produced significant impairments in working memory, attention, and inhibitory control. All animals injected with α-synuclein vectors exhibited high immunoreactivity for human α-synuclein in the medial prefrontal cortex and its primary projection targets. However, only when this overexpression was combined with fibril inoculations did animals exhibit large, proteinase K-resistant and Ser129-phosphorylated α-synuclein intraneuronal inclusions in the medial prefrontal cortex and its closely interconnected brain regions. The inclusions were associated with distorted dendritic morphologies and partial neuronal loss in the targeted cortical areas. Conclusions: Cortical overexpression of human α-synuclein is not sufficient to produce cognitive dysfunction, whereas combining this overexpression with fibril seeds yields both cognitive and histopathological phenotypes that are relevant to human Lewy body disease.

  • Survival time, mortality, and cause of death in elderly patients with Parkinson's disease : A 9-year follow-up
  • 2003

    • This community-based study of Parkinson's disease (PD) investigated age at death and cause of death in a cohort of 170 previously studied patients. The current study is a 9-year follow-up, and the results are compared to 510 sex- and age-matched controls from the same area. A total of 170 patients were diagnosed with PD on August 31, 1989, within a defined area of Sweden. A control group of 510 persons from the same area and with the same age and sex distribution was also examined regarding age at death and cause of death. After 9.4 years, 121 cases (71.1%) and 229 controls (44.9%) were no longer alive. Thus, the mortality rate ratio was 1.6 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.3-1.8) when comparing PD patients with controls. The all-cause hazard ratio for cases compared to controls was 2.4 (95% CI, 1.9-3.0). The mean age at death for the cases was 81.9 (95% CI, 80.3-83.0) years and for the controls 82.9 (95% CI, 82.0-83.7) years. Survival analysis also showed a shorter survival time (P < 0.001) for PD patients. Only 53% of the death certificates for the deceased patients recorded PD as an underlying or contributory cause of death. Many PD patients reached a high age but had a shorter survival than the controls. There was a significant increase in deaths from pneumonia.
