Can Retinal Thickness Predict Cognitive Decline in Parkinson Disease?

Lunes, Marzo 29, 2021

In a small study, two measures of retinal thickness showed greater thinning rates and correlations with cognitive decline in patients with PD than in controls.

Increasing interest has focused on the development of biomarkers capable of tracking Parkinson disease (PD) progression over time. In this study, investigators examined changes over a 3-year period in retinal thickness using spectralis retinal optical coherence tomography and in scores derived from the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) and the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale.
