Brief Summary:
this pilot study aims to further explore the potential usage of Fecal microbiota transplantation in treating constipation and possibly also motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients, and to increase understanding of the potential relationship between the identities of intestinal microbial communities and PD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson Disease Procedure: fecal microbial transplantation Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a technique in which intestinal microbiota are transferred from a healthy donor to the patient, with as primary goal to introduce - or restore - a stable and 'healthy' microbial community in the gut.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by motor symptoms and Gastrointestinal dysfunction, in particular constipation, affects up to 80% of PD patients and may precede the onset of motor symptoms by years.

this study include one group of PD patients that will receive FMT. two other groups will serve as controls:

  1. PD patients that will not receive FMT
  2. healthy people who live with PD patients in the same house and share similar surrounding

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PD patients that will receive FMT
fecal microbial transplantation once at the beginning of the study
Procedure: fecal microbial transplantation
Fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) is a technique in which intestinal microbiota are transferred from a healthy donor to the patient, with as primary goal to introduce - or restore - a stable and 'healthy' microbial community in the gut.

No Intervention: PD patients that will not receive FMT
do not receive treatment
No Intervention: healthy people live with PD patients
do not receive treatment



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. motor parkinsonian symptoms [ Time Frame: Change from baseline motor difficulties at 6 months ]
    motor symptoms assessed by UPDRS III questionaire

  2. constipation level [ Time Frame: Change from baseline constipation level at 6 months ]
    constipation will be assessed by a scoring system questionaire. 6 parameters are reviewed as scored fro 0 (mild symptom) to 4 (srvere symptom).
