      Introduction: As current clinical diagnostic protocols for Parkinson's disease (PD) may be prone to inaccuracies there is a need to identify and validate molecular biomarkers, such as circulating microRNAs, which will ...
    • Defective mitochondrial DNA homeostasis in the substantia nigra in Parkinson disease 

      Dölle, Christian; Flønes, Irene Hana; Sanchez Nido, Gonzalo; Miletic, Hrvoje; Osuagwu, Nelson; Kristoffersen, Stine; Lilleng, Peer Kåre; Larsen, Jan Petter; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Haugarvoll, Kristoffer; Bindoff, Laurence; Tzoulis, Charalampos (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-11-22)
      Increased somatic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutagenesis causes premature aging in mice, and mtDNA damage accumulates in the human brain with aging and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson disease (PD). Here, we ...
    • Evolution of impulsive–compulsive behaviors and cognition in Parkinson’s disease 

      Erga, Aleksander Hagen; Alves, Guido Werner; Tysnes, Ole-Bjørn; Pedersen, Kenn Freddy (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The longitudinal course of ICBs in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PwP) relative to controls has not been explored as of yet. The aim of this study is to determine the frequency, evolution and associated cognitive and ...
