The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research Key Developments

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space, Inc. Announces the Partnership

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research and the Center For The Advancement Of Science In Space, Inc. announce a partnership to send a key Parkinson's protein to the International Space Station for growth under microgravity conditions. Microgravity may allow bigger, more regular LRRK2 protein crystals to grow, which helps solve the protein's structure. LRRK2 is a priority target of Parkinson's research and drug development. Mutations in the LRRK2 gene can cause Parkinson's disease and are linked to heightened levels of LRRK2 protein kinase (a type of protein that modifies other proteins). Therefore, researchers believe inhibiting LRRK2 may prevent or slow Parkinson's progression.

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research Launches Clinician Input Study in Parkinson's Disease to Evaluate Mobile Technology in Clinical Care

The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research launched the Clinician Input Study in Parkinson's Disease (CIS-PD), a new initiative to gather and assess data through the Fox Wearable Companion mobile application to inform Parkinson's disease (PD) treatment and care. The Fox Wearable Companion application, developed by Intel, will collect movement data and patient-reported information every day for six months from people with Parkinson's. As part of the CIS-PD study, participating clinicians will compare data from the application with their own in-person assessments during patients' visits. CIS-PD is led by clinicians from four clinical trial centers: Northwestern University, IL; The University of Rochester, NY; The University of Alabama at Birmingham; and The University of Cincinnati, OH. Participating clinicians will enroll a total of 50 people with Parkinson's who have iPhones, and pair an Apple watch to their devices. For six months, the Fox Wearable Companion application will collect movement data from the watch and direct patients to manually enter information on their symptoms and experience with the disease outside of the clinic. A dashboard tool will chart each individual's medication adherence, symptom severity, daily activity level and nighttime movement. During study visits, clinicians will compare their observations to the data collected in the application and patients' reported experiences. In doing so, clinicians can assess the accuracy and utility of mobile data in clinical practice.
