Parkinson's Disease | Fatigue and Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation in Parkinson Disease
Parkinson's Disease research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
The purpose of this research study is to learn about a possible association between cardiac
denervation (the breaking down of nerves in the heart) and the development of fatigue in
Parkinson's disease (PD).
Who is eligible to participate?
Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?
Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.
Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
Start Date: March 2009
Completed Date: January 2015
