Personalized Parkinson Project
In 2017, the Radboudumc, in collaboration with the American company Verily Life Sciences, started the Personalized Parkinson Project (PPP). This is a large-scale study into the origin and course of Parkinson's disease. By extensively following a large group of people with Parkinson's disease for two years, we wanted to gain new knowledge and lay the foundation for personalized treatments.
PPP 'De Novo'
Because of the success of the PPP, a collaboration between the Radboudumc and the pharmaceutical company UCB (Union Chimique Belge) has started. This collaboration has led to a new study: PPP De Novo. This study differs from the PPP-study in that the focus is on collecting research data from people with parkinson's who are not yet taking parkinson's medication. The survey data will be used to develop a new measure to measure Parkinson's disease in a reliable and objective way.
Due to the succes of our previous studies, we continue to participate in new studies on Parkinson's disease and a-typical parkinsonism.

Participant assessmentsAll study procedures are performed at Radboud University Medical Center. Participants are invited to come to the study site in Nijmegen three times, during the 2 years of follow-up, for a full day of data collection. The visits include the following assessments:
- Detailed clinimetrics
- Blood sampling
- ECG & holter
- Lumbar puncture (optional)
