Special Issue Information
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. As of yet, due to available symptomatic treatment, an adequate level of quality of life may be maintained until the very advanced stages of the disorder. Despite the advancements in knowledge of the pathological processes associated with the degeneration leading to PD, there are some challenging aspects without adequate relief, such as dementia, levodopa-resistant freezing of gait, and postural instability.
This Special Issue of the Journal of Clinical Medicine will cover the following important items:
- Gait assessment of PD, focusing on freezing of gait.
- Physical activity for PD.
- Non-dopaminergic therapy for PD.
- Non-motor advances in PD, with a preference for cognitive disturbances.
- Microbiome study.
- Palliative care for PD.
