Movement disorders are neurologic diseases predominantly involving the basal ganglia. Hyperkinetic movement disorders, which cause excessive movement, include Huntington's disease and dystonia. Hypokinetic disorders, which cause a reduction in movement, include Parkinson's disease and progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP).
The Colorado Neurological Institute Movement Disorders Center has been at the forefront of state-of-the-art treatments, emerging research and education for over 20 years. Our research includes independent, single-center studies and also
participation in NIH-sponsored and pharmaceutical-sponsored multi-center clinical trials.
The CNI Movement Disorders Center is currently conducting more than 25 studies for patients with Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, dystonia, and atypical Parkinsonian syndromes (e.g., PSP). Click on the links below for details of our studies.
If you seek additional information or would like to refer patients for possible participation in any of our studies, please contact Diane Erickson, RN, BSN, CCRC, at 303.762.6674. We will arrange for an expedited evaluation of your patient and will return the patient to your care at the completion of the study if you so desire.
