Detail Study Description
The purpose of this study is to collect clinical information to help develop biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease. Biomarkers are proteins measured in blood whose concentration reflects presence or severity of a disease state. Finding biomarkers for Parkinson’s disease may be useful in developing new treatments. There will be no medication in this study. We will only collect information about the progression of your Parkinson's disease symptoms. If you decide to participate, you will be asked to come to Cleveland Clinic every 3 months for 1 year and once every 6 months for the next 2 to 4 years.
