Slow-wave sleep and motor progression in Parkinson disease


Schreiner, Simon J; Imbach, Lukas L; Werth, Esther; Poryazova, Rositsa; Baumann-Vogel, Heide; Valko, Philipp O; Murer, Tobias; Noain, Daniela; Baumann, Christian R (2019). Slow-wave sleep and motor progression in Parkinson disease. Annals of Neurology, 85(5):765-770.

Abstract

Growing evidence from Alzheimer disease supports a potentially beneficial role of slow-wave sleep in neurodegeneration. However, the importance of slow-wave sleep in Parkinson disease is unknown. In 129 patients with Parkinson disease, we retrospectively tested whether sleep slow waves, objectively quantified with polysomnography, relate to longitudinal changes in Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale motor scores. We found that higher accumulated power of sleep slow waves was associated with slower motor progression, particularly of axial motor symptoms, over a mean time of 4.6 ± 2.3 years. This preliminary finding suggests that deeper sleep relates to slower motor progression in Parkinson disease. Ann Neurol 2019;85:765-770.
