In a precedent paper, we validated part IV of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) for detecting motor fluctuations in Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients using a 12-h Waking-Day Motor Assessment (WDMA) as gold standard, showing a high sensitivity (> 80%) and a lower specificity (< 45%). The aim of this study was to validate the Movement Disorder Society-UPDRS (MDS-UPDRS) part IV, especially items 4.3 and 4.5, using the same methodology.

Abstract

In a precedent paper, we validated part IV of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) for detecting motor fluctuations in Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients using a 12-h Waking-Day Motor Assessment (WDMA) as gold standard, showing a high sensitivity (> 80%) and a lower specificity (< 45%). The aim of this study was to validate the Movement Disorder Society-UPDRS (MDS-UPDRS) part IV, especially items 4.3 and 4.5, using the same methodology.
