Launched in 2010, PPMI is a longitudinal clinical study that collects standardized clinical, imaging and biologic data.
PPMI is investigating the connection between Parkinson's and reduced sense of smell, a common but little-noticed symptom of PD.
We expect that the biomarkers we discover will help us better understand the disease and accelerate therapeutic trials, with the goal of assessing whether a drug can modify the progression of Parkinson's," PPMI primary investigator Dr.
Recruitment is the first second, and third issue in a study like this," said PPMI lead investigator Dr.
If a biomarker is identified through PPMI, researchers will have a critical tool to use in the quest for disease-modifying therapies that can slow or stop the progression of the disease.
Speeding Therapeutics Against Two Promising Targets PPMI will enroll individuals with a mutation of the LRRK2 or SNCA gene.
For example, analysis from PPMI has shown that levels of a protein implicated in Alzheimer's disease (amyloid-beta) are lower in the cerebrospinal fluid of individuals with Parkinson's compared to individuals without Parkinson's.
The pre-motor arm of PPMI will enroll participants who do not have Parkinson's disease and are living with one of three potential risk factors for PD: a reduced sense of smell (hyposmia); rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder (RBD); or a mutation in the LRRK2 gene (the single greatest genetic contributor to PD known to date).

There's an important difference in terms of those who will participate in the study: While PPMI engaged only those who had been newly diagnosed with PD, BioFIND is searching for people who have had PD for at least five years.
The Shake It Up Foundation will raise funds for PPMI and other Parkinson's research being carried out in Australian labs.
Alpha-synuclein will be one of the proteins tested in PPMI for its potential as a Parkinson's biomarker.
