#1
Nirosen Vijiaratnam, Carolyn M Sue
The levodopa carbidopa intestinal gel is a device-assisted therapy used for the management of fluctuating motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease that are refractory to oral therapy. The approach has demonstrable clinical value, but consideration of the associated need for expert care, access to services, and costs of the treatment impact the method of introduction to optimize uptake and minimize discontinuation across populations examined. Systematic approaches and modifications have been explored by different centers over the years to mitigate these considerations, with the aim of minimizing adverse events and maximizing the quality-of-life years gained with the treatment...

Background: A heterozygous mutation in the TOR1A gene (DYT1) accounts for isolated dystonia typically presenting during childhood or adolescence, with initial involvement of one limb, spreading rapidly to other limbs and the trunk, sparing craniocervical muscles. However, atypical phenotypes, regarding age at onset, site of presentation, and spreading have been reported. Methods and Findings: In 2006, we described a large Italian family showing atypical phenotypes and intrafamilial clinical variability of DYT1-dystonia...

Background: Brachial neuritis has previously been described as a rare occurrence in patients receiving botulinum toxin for cervical or writing/focal arm dystonia. Methods: We report four cases of patients with a long history of cervical dystonia treated with botulinum toxin injections. Results: All patients developed pain and muscular weakness around the shoulder, with EMG studies suggesting brachial neuritis. Conclusions: In the context of these observations, we discuss the question of an association between brachial neuritis and botulinum toxin treatment...

Objectives: To identify the prevalence of dystonia in a RNA Polymerase III (POLR3)-related leukodystrophy patient cohort and to further characterize their dystonic features. Background: POLR3-related leukodystrophy is a hypomyelinating leukodystrophy characterized by neurological and non-neurological features. Dystonia remains a challenging and under-recognized feature. Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed in a cohort of 20 patients for whom videos of a standardized neurological examination were available...

Objective: To examine the effect of levodopa medication on speech dysfluency in Parkinson's disease. Methods: Fifty-one individuals with Parkinson's disease (IWPD) read aloud during off- and on- medication states. Total speech dysfluencies were calculated from transcriptions of recorded speech samples. Results: Severity of speech dysfluency was not significantly related to the severity of motor symptoms, duration of disease, levodopa equivalent dosage, or age...

Objective: Pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (PKAN) is an autosomal-recessive, neurodegenerative disorder with a mixed-motor phenotype caused by a defective PanK2 enzyme, for which there are few adequate treatment options. Clinimetrically sound measures of patient-reported outcomes are necessary to facilitate therapeutic development for this debilitating disease. This study's objective was to develop such a scale and assess its clinimetric properties. Methods: A conceptually driven, iterative, content development process incorporating input from experts, caregivers, and patients was used...

Introduction: Huntington's chorea (HC) is commonly managed with neuroleptic medications, though there is little evidence to support their use. This study aimed to perform a real-world comparison of the efficacy of risperidone and olanzapine to tetrabenazine (TBZ) for HC. Methods: The Enroll-HD database was used to perform a propensity score-matched comparison of risperidone and olanzapine to TBZ, regarding their efficacy in controlling chorea. Participants with motor manifest Huntington's disease (HD) were grouped according to their use of risperidone, olanzapine, or TBZ...

Objectives: Palliative care addresses the suffering of patients and families affected by progressive illness through the management of medical symptoms, psychosocial issues, and spiritual concerns. Although there is an emerging interest in applying palliative care to Parkinson's disease (PD), potential palliative care needs have not been systematically investigated in PD patients. Our primary objective was to determine the prevalence of clinically significant symptomatic, psychosocial, and spiritual issues in PD and understand their impact on health-related quality of life (HRQOL)...

Background: There are currently no proven treatments for fragile X-associated tremor and ataxia syndrome (FXTAS). Validated outcome measures are needed in order to plan and conduct clinical trials to aid in the development of therapy. Methods: This study examined the reliability and construct validity of the FXTAS Rating Scale. The study was conducted by using ratings from movement disorder specialists, who were blinded to gene status, on the FXTAS Rating Scale...

REVIEW

Background: Functional MRI (fMRI) has been widely used to study abnormal patterns of functional connectivity at rest in patients with movement disorders such as idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD) and atypical parkinsonisms. Methods: This manuscript provides an educational review of the current use of resting-state fMRI in the field of parkinsonian syndromes. Results: Resting-state fMRI studies have improved the current knowledge about the mechanisms underlying motor and non-motor symptom development and progression in movement disorders...

Background: Clinical, neurophysiological, and pathological evidence suggest an association between Parkinson's disease (PD) and peripheral neuropathy (PNP), with a possible causative role of levodopa metabolic products, such as homocysteine and methylmalonic acid. Methods: We conducted a systematic review of studies reporting cases of PNP in l-dopa-treated PD patients indexed in PubMed between January 1990 and March 2018. Results: We identified 38 articles reporting cases of PNP in PD patients treated with oral l-dopa or with l-dopa/carbidopa intestinal gel infusion (LCIG)...
