The aim of this study was: (1) to investigate the domains of cognitive impairment in patients with PD and RBD, and (2) to explore risk factors for PD-mild cognitive impairment (PD-MCI) and the relationship between RBD severity and impairment in different cognitive domains in PD.
The researchers, who analyzed data collected on more than 73,000 postmenopausal women, found that the women who had PD were at a 14 percent higher risk of breast cancer than women without PD.
The two groups of six subjects with PD consisted of subjects with earlieror later-onset (before or after age 60) PD.
5 percent of people have PD by age 62; it is estimated that over a million people have PD.
Conclusions: Health teachers did not have a voice or choice of in-school PD, relied upon outside PD (state conferences) to remain updated in health content and applicable methods, and needed clarification about funding for outside PD.
Number of Subjects: Fourteen with PD (Hoehn and Yahr Stage 2) and 15 healthy controls (HC) without PD.
The studies strengthen the already well-documented association between pesticide exposure and Parkinson's disease (PD) by including a more detailed assessment of exposure to the chemicals for analyzing dose-effect relationships, especially for different classes of insecticides, fungicides, and herbicides, as well as examining the role of genetic traits in determining individual susceptibility to PD.
Catheter implantation, in particular wait time for implantation, is the next strategy to further break down barriers to PD.
There can be many referring hospitals within a given location providing a variety of services competing for the small number of patients potentially needing PD.
This is the condition most often misdiagnosed as PD.
Essential tremor (ET) is the condition most often misdiagnosed as PD.
Elementary teachers were more likely than content-specific teachers to receive content-specific PD.
