Further study details as provided by Nantes University Hospital:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate association between clinical autonomic failure and neuropathological autonomic failure on biopsies. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    the main objective is to look after associations between :

    • anatomopathological signs of autonomic nervous system disorders seen on biopsies AND
    • clinical signs of signs of autonomic nervous system disorders seen through functional tests or through symptoms indicated by the patient on questionaries.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate association between autonomic failure and severity factors in Parkinson's disease [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Autonomic failure will be assessed through questionaries on symptoms and through functional tests.

    Severity factors in parkinson disease will refer to various parameters like patient age.


  • Evaluate consequences of autonomic failure on quality of life and sleep quality [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    quality of life and of sleep will be assessed through functional tests and through questionaries.
