Details and patient eligibility

About

The primary aim of this study is to compare regional amyloid burden in Parkinson's disease (PD) to normal control subjects. We hypothesize that there will be significant differences in overall amyloid burden in PD patients compared to age-matched normal controls.

    • Diagnosis of a parkinsonian syndrome

      • Bradykinesia (slowness of initiation of voluntary movement with progressive reduction in speed and amplitude of repetitive actions)
      • At least one of the following: muscle rigidity, rest tremor, postural instability not due to visual, vestibular, cerebellar or proprioceptive causes

    • Significant supranuclear gaze palsy
    • Cerebellar, pyramidal and early severe autonomic findings
    • Early severe dementia suggesting a diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB)
