New Study Showed the Impact of Gastrointestinal Disorders in Patients With Parkinson's Disease
Date:6/15/2010

BRUSSELS, June 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New data from a retrospective cohort study showed that up to three quarters of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) developed gastrointestinal disorders (GID) that can have a substantial adverse effect on major PD-related clinical and health economic outcomes. These data were presented at the 14th International Congress of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders in Buenos Aires, Argentina (June 13-17, 2010).

"Gastrointestinal disorders can impair the onset of symptom relief by Parkinson's disease drugs and these data help us to better understand the prevalence and consequences of such disorders amongst patients diagnosed with Parkinson's disease."

The study found that gastrointestinal disorders in PD patients were associated with significantly higher rates of neuropsychiatric and motor disorders, as well as increased emergency room admissions, number of concurrent drugs and non-PD healthcare costs.

About the Study

The new findings came from a two year matched retrospective cohort study performed on a U.S. database of patient records (Pharmetrics®)* which included demographic, diagnostic, procedural and prescription information. Patients with at least two prior diagnoses of Parkinson's disease and continuous prescri
