Study Site description

The Center of Clinical Neurology was established in 2002 as an outpatient clinic. Our objective was to diagnose and treat patients with various neurological disorders and to conduct clinical trials.

The clinical database of the Center comprises about 500 PD patients, 40 patients who manifest HD and about 60 in a pre-diagnostic state.
