The CamPaIGN study is a longitudinal study of the natural history of incident Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. The study was the first to prospectively track disease evolution from diagnosis in an unselected population-representative incident cohort, and has focused primarily on the evolution of cognitive dysfunction in PD, reporting on both clinical and genetic predictors of dementia. Other outcomes of interest in this study include development of dyskinesia, development of postural instability, and death.
