MJFF COVID-19 Survey Highlights Adverse Implications for Patients With Parkinson Disease
July 23, 2020
Findings from the Michael J. Fox Foundation’s (MJFF) coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) survey, based on patient-reported information from Fox Insight, highlight the known adverse effects of general infections on worsening of motor and nonmotor symptoms in patients with Parkinson disease (PD). However, there still remains insufficient data on the specified risk of COVID-19 in the PD community, noted Vanessa Arnedo, vice president of Research Cohorts for MJFF, and Ethan Brown, MD, neurologist and principal investigator of the MJFF COVID-19 survey.
