Influence of motor symptoms upon the quality of life of patients with Parkinson's disease.
Eur Neurol. 2007; 57(3):161-5.EN

Abstract

We studied the impact of various motor and nonmotor symptoms upon quality of life in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). The study comprised 110 patients with PD (age: 68.6 years, course of the disease: 7.6 years). The Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS; I-IV) and Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) were recorded. We recorded the correlations between years of disease and UPDRS IV, as well as PDQ-39 and UPDRS I, II, III and IV. Introduction of all variables into a linear regression model showed that 3 variables accounted for 51% of the variance in PDQ-39. Mental condition, gait disorders and complications of dopaminergic drugs are the variables that most affect the quality of life of patients with PD.
