The objective of this study was to assess longitudinal change in clinical and dopamine transporter imaging outcomes in early, untreated PD.We describe 5-year longitudinal change of the MDS-UPDRS and other clinical measures using results from the Parkinson's Progression Markers Initiative, a longitudinal cohort study of early Parkinson's disease (PD) participants untreated at baseline. We also provide data on the longitudinal change in dopamine transporter 123-I Ioflupane striatal binding and correlation between the 2 measures.A total of 423 PD participants were recruited, and 358 remain in the study at year 5. Baseline MDS-UPDRS total score was 32.4 (standard deviation 13.1), and the average annual change (assessed medications OFF for the treated participants) was 7.45 (11.6), 3.11 (11.7), 4(11.9), 4.7 (11.1), and 1.74(11.9) for years 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively (P?
