Abstract: Although depression is known to be frequent in Parkinson's disease (PD), it is unclear how mood can change and/or impact on patient's quality of life (QoL) over time. Our aim was to analyze the frequency of depression, mood related factors and the contribution of mood to a patient's QoL perception in regard to disease duration. PD patients recruited from the COPPADIS cohort from January 2016 to November 2017 were included in this cross-sectional study. Three groups were defined: Six hundred and sixty-three PD patients (62.6 ± 8.9 years old, 59.6% males) were included: Group A, 50.1% (n = 332); Group B, 33.3% (n = 221) and Group C, 16.6% (n = 110). There were no differences between the three groups in terms of the frequency of depressive symptoms nor the frequency of depression type (major vs. minor vs. subthreshold) (p = 0.729). However, the unique percent variance of PDQ-39SI and EUROHIS-QOL8 explained by BDI-II total score was 2 (23.7%) and threefold (26.9%), respectively, in Group C compared to the other two groups. EUROHIS-QOL8 total score provided the highest unique contribution to mood (16.8%). Although depression-type frequency does not appear to change over time in PD; the contribution of mood on QoL perception is greater in patients with longer disease duration.
