Assessment of clinical trials reporting on exercise as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease

Takeaway

  • Many clinical trials that assess the impact of exercise on Parkinson’s disease have unpublished results, and of those that are published many have poor methodological reporting.

Why this matters

    Future clinical trials in this field should follow good clinical trial practice guidelines, and well-designed and large-scale trials are needed to define the role of exercise in treatment of PD.
