London: Rapid eye movement (REM) sleep behaviour disorder, which involves abnormal behaviour when one experiences nightmares and vivid dreams, could lead to Parkinson`s disease.
Results show that after three years of monitoring production in the control group, dopamine was reduced by eight percent due to age, while the group of REM disorder patients experienced a reduction of 20 percent. Once the three-year follow-up ended, three of 20 patients with REM sleep disorder had developed Parkinson`s and their dopamine reduction was around 30 percent.Study authors suggest that a drug should significantly prevent the dopamine concentration from dropping in these patients.IANS
