Large online study shows impact of PD on quality of life

New study findings from a large online patient cohort have shed new light on factors influencing quality of life (QoL) in Parkinson’s disease.

Presenting at MDS 2020, Dr Meredith Bock from the University of California, San Francisco, USA, said these factors have not been fully characterized in large populations of patients with PD. To investigate, Dr Bock and colleagues analyzed data from the Fox Insight study, a large longitudinal online cohort.
