Initial management of Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is one of the most common neurodegenerative disorders seen in the United States and United Kingdom. The disease is characterised by two processes—cellular degeneration and the resulting biochemical deficiency of dopamine. Although these processes are inter-related, they are approached separately in the clinical setting. Currently, no proven neuroprotective or disease modifying treatment is available for Parkinson’s disease. Several agents can be used to treat the motor symptoms associated with dopamine deficiency, and it is important to choose wisely when starting treatment. Drugs can have mild, moderate, or high potency, and the patient’s goals, comorbidities, and the short and long term implications of choosing a specific agent should be taken into account when selecting the appropriate agent. Non-motor symptoms, such as depression, fatigue, and disorders of sleep and wakefulness, also need to be evaluated and treated. Research is under way to deliver dopaminergic therapy more effectively, but studies aimed at slowing or stopping disease progression have not shown promise.

Randomised controlled trials: understanding effect sizes

Researchers assessed whether a multimodal group exercise intervention had physiological, functional, and emotional benefits for patients with cancer. A randomised controlled trial was performed. The intervention was supervised exercise comprising high intensity cardiovascular and resistance training, relaxation and body awareness training, and massage. The intervention was delivered for nine hours weekly for six weeks in addition to conventional care. The control treatment was conventional care alone. Participants were 269 patients with cancer undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy or treatment for advanced disease. The primary outcome was fatigue at six weeks as assessed using the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire (EORTC QLQ-C30); scores range from 0 to 100 and higher scores represent higher levels of fatigue. Secondary outcomes included measures of physical capacity, general wellbeing, physical activity, and quality of life.1
