Antiparkinson Agents: Agents used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The most commonly used drugs act on the dopaminergic system in the striatum and basal ganglia or are centrally acting muscarinic antagonists.Biperiden: A muscarinic antagonist that has effects in both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It has been used in the treatment of arteriosclerotic, idiopathic, and postencephalitic parkinsonism. It has also been used to alleviate extrapyramidal symptoms induced by phenothiazine derivatives and reserpine.Orphenadrine: A muscarinic antagonist used to treat drug-induced parkinsonism and to relieve pain from muscle spasm.Safety-Based Drug Withdrawals: Removal of a drug from the market due to the identification of an intrinsic property of the drug that results in a serious risk to public health.Cholinergic Antagonists: Drugs that bind to but do not activate CHOLINERGIC RECEPTORS, thereby blocking the actions of ACETYLCHOLINE or cholinergic agonists.Parkinson Disease: A progressive, degenerative neurologic disease characterized by a TREMOR that is maximal at rest, retropulsion (i.e. a tendency to fall backwards), rigidity, stooped posture, slowness of voluntary movements, and a masklike facial expression. Pathologic features include loss of melanin containing neurons in the substantia nigra and other pigmented nuclei of the brainstem. LEWY BODIES are present in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus but may also be found in a related condition (LEWY BODY DISEASE, DIFFUSE) characterized by dementia in combination with varying degrees of parkinsonism. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1059, pp1067-75)Antipsychotic Agents: Agents that control agitated psychotic behavior, alleviate acute psychotic states, reduce psychotic symptoms, and exert a quieting effect. They are used in SCHIZOPHRENIA; senile dementia; transient psychosis following surgery; or MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION; etc. These drugs are often referred to as neuroleptics alluding to the tendency to produce neurological side effects, but not all antipsychotics are likely to produce such effects. Many of these drugs may also be effective against nausea, emesis, and pruritus.

Analysis of gabapentin in serum and plasma by solid-phase extraction and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry for therapeutic drug monitoring. (1/798)

A simple method for the determination of gabapentin (Neurontin) is described. The method uses solid-phase extraction by disk column and derivatization followed by gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric analysis. The single-step derivatization with MTBSTFA produces a t-BDMS derivative of both the carboxylic and amine moieties of the molecule. Each step of the procedure was optimized to assure reliable performance of the method. The assay limit of detection was 0.1 microg/mL with a linear range from 1.0 to 35 microg/mL. Within-run (n = 3) and between-run (n = 40) coefficients of variation were less than 8.2 and 15.9%, respectively. The method has proven reliable in routine production for more than a year, producing clean chromatography with unique ion fragments, consistent ion mass ratios, and no interferences. Statistical analysis of the gabapentin concentrations measured in 1020 random specimens over a 2-month period showed a mean concentration of 6.07 microg/mL with a standard deviation of 5.28.  (+info)

Impairment in preattentive visual processing in patients with Parkinson's disease. (2/798)

We explored the possibility of whether preattentive visual processing is impaired in Parkinson's disease. With this aim, visual discrimination thresholds for orientation texture stimuli were determined in two separate measurement sessions in 16 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. The results were compared with those of 16 control subjects age-matched and 16 young healthy volunteers. Discrimination thresholds were measured in a four-alternative spatial forced-choice paradigm, in which subjects judged the location of a target embedded in a background of distractors. Four different stimulus configurations were employed: (i) a group of vertical targets among horizontal distractors ('vertical line targets'); (ii) targets with varying levels of orientation difference on a background of spatially filtered vertically oriented noise ('Gaussian filtered noise'); (iii) one 'L' among 43 '+' signs ('texton'), all of which assess preattentive visual processing; and (iv) control condition, of one 'L' among 43 'T' distractors ('non-texton' search target), which reflects attentive visual processing. In two of the preattentive tasks (filtered noise and texton), patients with Parkinson's disease required significantly greater orientation differences and longer stimulus durations, respectively. In contrast, their performance in the vertical line target and non-texton search target was comparable to that of the matched control subjects. These differences were more pronounced in the first compared with the second session. Duration of illness and age within the patient group correlated significantly with test performance. In all conditions tested, the young control subjects performed significantly better than the more elderly control group, further indicating an effect of age on this form of visual processing. The results suggest that, in addition to the well documented impairment in retinal processing, idiopathic Parkinson's disease is associated with a deficit in preattentive cortical visual processing.  (+info)

Low-dose clozapine for the treatment of drug-induced psychosis in Parkinson's disease. The Parkinson Study Group. (3/798)

BACKGROUND: Drug-induced psychosis is a difficult problem to manage in patients with Parkinson's disease. Multiple open-label studies have reported that treatment with clozapine at low doses ameliorates psychosis without worsening parkinsonism. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of low doses of clozapine (6.25 to 50 mg per day) in 60 patients at six sites over a period of 14 months. The patients (mean age, 72 years) had idiopathic Parkinson's disease and drug-induced psychosis of at least four weeks' duration. All the patients continued to receive fixed doses of antiparkinsonian drugs during the four weeks of the trial. Blood counts were monitored weekly in all the patients. RESULTS: The mean dose of clozapine was 24.7 mg per day. The patients in the clozapine group had significantly more improvement than those in the placebo group in all three of the measures used to determine the severity of psychosis. The mean (+/-SE) scores on the Clinical Global Impression Scale improved by 1.6+/-0.3 points for the patients receiving clozapine, as compared with 0.5+/-0.2 point for those receiving placebo (P<0.001). The score on the Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale improved by 9.3+/-1.5 points for the patients receiving clozapine, as compared with 2.6+/-1.3 points for those receiving placebo (P=0.002). The score on the Scale for the Assessment of Positive Symptoms improved by 11.8+/-2.0 points for the patients receiving clozapine, as compared with 3.8+/-1.9 points for those receiving placebo (P=0.01). Seven patients treated with clozapine had an improvement of at least three on the seven-point Clinical Global Impression Scale, as compared with only one patient given placebo. Clozapine treatment improved tremor and had no deleterious effect on the severity of parkinsonism. In one patient, clozapine was discontinued because of leukopenia. CONCLUSIONS: Clozapine, at daily doses of 50 mg or less, is safe and significantly improves drug-induced psychosis without worsening parkinsonism.  (+info)

Reassessment of unilateral pallidotomy in Parkinson's disease. A 2-year follow-up study. (4/798)

Unilateral pallidotomy has gained popularity in treating the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease. We present the results of a 2-year post-pallidotomy follow-up study. Using the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), the Goetz dyskinesia scale and the Purdue Pegboard Test (PPBT), we evaluated 20 patients at regular intervals both off and on medications for 2 years post-pallidotomy. There were no significant changes in the dosages of antiparkinsonian medications from 3 months pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy. On the side contralateral to the operation, the improvements were preserved in 'on'-state dyskinesia (83% reduction from pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy, P < 0.001) and 'off'-state tremor (90% reduction from pre-pallidotomy to 2 years post-pallidotomy, P = 0.005). There were no statistically significant differences between pre-pallidotomy scores and those at 2 years post-pallidotomy in ipsilateral dyskinesia, axial dyskinesia, 'off'- or 'on'-state PPBT, 'off'-state Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and 'off'-state gait and postural stability. After 2 years, the 'on'-state ADL scores worsened by 75%, compared with pre-pallidotomy (P = 0.005). We conclude that 2 years after pallidotomy, the improvements in dyskinesia and tremor on the side contralateral to pallidotomy are preserved, while the initial improvements in most other deficits disappear, either because of progression of pathology or loss of the early efficacy achieved by surgery.  (+info)

The effect of steady-state ropinirole on plasma concentrations of digoxin in patients with Parkinson's disease. (5/798)

AIMS: The aim of this single-blind study was to assess the effect of ropinirole, a novel treatment for Parkinson's disease, on the steady-state pharmacokinetics and safety of digoxin in 10 patients with Parkinson's disease. METHODS: There were three parts to the study: digoxin once daily plus placebo three times daily for 1 week; digoxin once daily plus ropinirole three times daily for 6 weeks; and digoxin once daily plus placebo three times daily for 1 week. Serial blood samples were collected over 24 h at the end of each part of the study for pharmacokinetic assessment. Pre-dose blood samples were collected on specific days throughout the study to assess the attainment of steady-state plasma levels of digoxin. The primary endpoints were AUC(0, tau) and Cmax for digoxin. RESULTS: There was a mean decrease of 10% in digoxin AUC (0, tau) (90% CI: 0.79, 1.01) and a 25% decrease in digoxin Cmax (90% CI: 0.58, 0.97) when ropinirole was co-administered, compared with digoxin alone Cmin plasma values for digoxin, however, were fairly constant throughout the study (point estimates 0.99, 95% CI: 0.85, 1.15). Changes in trough levels of digoxin are believed to be the most reliable way of assessing steady-state concentrations of digoxin, and therefore the clinical significance of an interaction. Changes in Cmax are too readily influenced by other factors. CONCLUSIONS: These results therefore indicate that on pharmacokinetic grounds no dose adjustment is necessary for digoxin co-administered with ropinirole.  (+info)

Efficacy, safety, and tolerance of the non-ergoline dopamine agonist pramipexole in the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease: a double blind, placebo controlled, randomised, multicentre study. (6/798)

OBJECTIVES: Pramipexole, a non-ergot dopamine D2/D3 receptor agonist, was investigated as an add on drug in advanced parkinsonian patients with motor fluctuations to assess efficacy, safety, and tolerance. METHODS: Seventy eight patients of either sex with advanced Parkinson's disease and treatment complications such as motor fluctuations were enrolled into a double blind, placebo controlled, randomised, multicentre study (phase II) and assigned to add on treatment with pramipexole (n=34) versus placebo (n=44) to a previously stabilised antiparkinsonian medication (7 week dose titration interval, 4 week maintenance period). The primary end point of efficacy was the change from baseline in the total score of the unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (UPDRS) in the on "period" (2 hours after intake of study medication). Safety and tolerability were assessed on the basis of adverse events, vital signs, laboratory measurements, and ECG recordings. RESULTS: There was a significant improvement of the pramipexole group in UPDRS total scores, subscores part II, III (activities of daily living and motor examination), and IV (complications of therapy). Mean UPDRS total score decreased by 37.3% under pramipexole compared with 12.2% under placebo (p<0.001). Patients under pramipexole reported an overall reduction in "off" periods of 12%--resulting in 1.7 more hours "on" time a day--compared with an increase in "off" periods of 2% under placebo. There were no unexpected safety results. The adverse event profile disclosed a high tolerability. The most important adverse events under pramipexole were fatigue, dyskinesia, and vivid dreams. CONCLUSION: Pramipexole administration is an efficacious and well tolerated add on therapy in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease with an improvement in activities of daily living, motor function, and treatment associated complications.  (+info)

Impairment of EEG desynchronisation before and during movement and its relation to bradykinesia in Parkinson's disease. (7/798)

OBJECTIVE: It has been suggested that the basal ganglia act to release cortical elements from idling (alpha) rhythms so that they may become coherent in the gamma range, thereby binding together those distributed activities necessary for the effective selection and execution of a motor act. This hypothesis was tested in 10 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. METHODS: Surface EEG was recorded during self paced squeezing of the hand and elbow flexion performed separately, simultaneously, or sequentially. Recordings were made after overnight withdrawal of medication and, again, 1 hour after levodopa. The medication related improvement in EEG desynchronisation (in the 7.5-12.5 Hz band) over the 1 second before movement and during movement were separately correlated with the improvement in movement time for each electrode site. Correlation coefficients (r) > 0.632 were considered significant (p<0.05). RESULTS: Improvement in premovement desynchronisation correlated with reduction in bradykinesia over the contralateral sensorimotor cortex and supplementary motor area in flexion and squeeze, respectively. However, when both movements were combined either simultaneously or sequentially, this correlation shifted anteriorly, to areas overlying prefrontal cortex. Improvement in EEG desynchronisation during movement only correlated with reduction in bradykinesia in two tasks. Correlation was seen over the supplementary motor area during flexion, and central prefrontal and ipsilateral premotor areas during simultaneous flex and squeeze. CONCLUSIONS: The results are consistent with the idea that the basal ganglia liberate frontal cortex from idling rhythms, and that this effect is focused and specific in so far as it changes with the demands of the task. In particular, the effective selection and execution of more complex tasks is associated with changes over the prefrontal cortex.  (+info)

Affective symptoms in multiple system atrophy and Parkinson's disease: response to levodopa therapy. (8/798)

The objective was to determine the extent to which psychiatric disturbances (especially mood disorders) generally considered poor prognostic factors, are present in patients with striatonigral (SND) type multiple system atrophy (MSA) compared with patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD). The Hamilton depression scale (HAM-D), brief psychiatric rating scale (BPRS), and Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (UPDRS) were administered to clinically probable non-demented patients with SND-type MSA and patients with IPD matched for age and motor disability, at baseline and after receiving levodopa. At baseline total HAM-D score was greater in patients with IPD. Overall, BPRS score did not differ between the two groups; however, patients with IPD scored higher on anxiety items of the BPRS, and patients with MSA had higher scores on the item indicating blunted affect. After levodopa, both groups improved significantly in UPDRS and HAM-D total scores (just significant for patients with MSA). Patients with IPD improved significantly in total BPRS score but patients with MSA did not. At baseline patients with IPD were more depressed and anxious than patients with MSA who, by contrast, showed blunted affect. After levodopa, depression and anxiety of patients with IPD improved significantly whereas the affective detachment of patients with MSA did not change. Major neuronal loss in the caudate and ventral striatum, which are part of the lateral orbitofrontal and limbic circuits, may be responsible for the blunted affect not responsive to levodopa therapy found in patients with MSA.  (+info)

The aim of our study was to understand the effects of dopamine replacement therapy on various aspects of cognition in patients with Parkinsons disease. When it comes to this particular disease, the part of the brain most affected by dopamine depletion is the striatum which is divided into several structures. In Parkinsons disease, the dorsal striatum is more severely affected than the ventral striatum, which remains relatively unaffected, at least during the first phases of the disease. We observed that while dopamine replacement therapy enhances the functions of the dorsal striatum, it is at the expense of the ventral striatum which suffers a dopamine overdose, impairing its function", states Dr. Monchi.. Until now, the effect of dopamine replacement therapy on cognition in individuals with Parkinsons disease was controversial. The purpose of this study however, was to further investigate. This led to a series of laboratory tests and neuroimaging studies that allowed researchers to clearly ...
This study will evaluate the effects of the experimental drug talampanel on dyskinesias (involuntary movements) that develop in patients with Parkinsons disease as a result of long-term treatment with levodopa (Sinemet).

Electrophysiological Dfierences Between Demented and Nondemented Patients with Parhnsons Disease Douglas S. Goodin, MD, and Michael J. Aminoff, MD ~ Long-latency auditory evoked potentials were studied in demented and nondemented patients with Parkinsons disease who were matched for age, stage of disease, duration of illness, and amount and nature of antiparkinsonian medication. We found clear electrophysiological differences between the two groups of patients in that the N1, N2, and P3 peak latencies were prolonged in the demented group compared both to the nondemented group and to normal controls. Moreover, the N1 latency but not the N2 and P3 latency prolongation distinguished the demented parkinsonian patients from demented patients with Alzheimers disease. These results provide strong evidence for the existence of different subtypes of dementia and suggest that electrophysiological recordings may be helpful in establishing the underlying pathogenesis of a dementia syndrome when there is ...
For 10 days prior to surgery, patients must not take aspirin, any aspirin containing drugs, related drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) or naproxen (Naprosyn), or Vitamin E. These drugs can increase the risk of bleeding. The evening before surgery, patients should wash their head, neck, and chest with hibiclens (or other soap containing chlorhexidine) in the shower. The morning of surgery, the patient should not take their antiparkinsonian medications. However, the patient should take any medications they normally take for other problems, such as high blood pressure.

Bilateral subthalamic nucleus stimulation (STN-DBS) is used to improve parkinsonian symptoms and attenuate levodopa-induced motor complications. In some patients, such clinical improvement allows antiparkinsonian medication (ApMed) withdrawal. We show the clinical outcome at the long-term follow-up of patients with advanced Parkinsons disease (PD) in which STN-DBS was used in monotherapy, and compare the clinical results of patients without medication with those obtained in parkinsonian patients in which ApMed were reduced but could not be totally displaced after surgery. We analyzed clinical outcome of ten patients with PD in which all ApMed was withdrawn after bilateral subthalamic stimulation and 16 parkinsonian patients still taking antiparkinsonian medication after surgery. After 1.5 years, STN-DBS monotherapy produced UPDRS motor scores similar to those observed in the on-drug condition before surgery without the inconvenience of motor fluctuations and dyskinesias. No significant ...
The modulation of levodopa transport across the blood brain barrier by large neutral amino acids is well documented. Protein limitation and protein redistribution diets may improve motor fluctuations in patients with Parkinsons disease but the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of levodopa and amino acids are highly variable. Clinical records of 1037 Parkinsons disease patients were analyzed to determine the proportion of patients with motor fluctuations related to protein interaction with levodopa. Motor fluctuations due to protein interaction with levodopa were defined as dietary protein being associated with (i) longer time to levodopa effectiveness, (ii) reduced benefit or duration of benefit, (iii) dose failures or (iv) earlier wearing off from a previously effective dose. Dose failures, sudden, painful or behavioral wearing-off periods, gait freezing, nausea, hallucinations, orthostasis, and dyskinesias were taken as markers of motor fluctuations, disease severity, and levodopa side effects
Antiparkinsonian effects of tandospirone, a selective 5-HT1A receptor agonist, were evaluated using rat models of Parkinson's disease. Tandospirone reversed catalepsy induced by the D2 antagonist haloperidol, in a dose-dependent manner. The anti-cataleptic action of tandospirone was comparable to that of bromocriptine and greater than that of L-DOPA. In rats with unilateral dopaminergic lesion by 6-hydroxydopamine, tandospirone markedly induced contralateral rotation. Furthermore, tandospirone dose-dependently restored spontaneous locomotor activity in reserpine-treated rats. These antiparkinsonian effects of tandospirone were abolished by coadministration of WAY-100635, a selective 5-HT1A antagonist, but not by haloperidol. The present results suggest that tandospirone has a therapeutic potential in treating parkinsonian symptoms, which is brought about through activation of 5-HT1A receptor.
To combat the adverse effects of dopamine deficiency.. Logically to treat Parkinsons disease, make dopamine would seem to be the most appropriate. Unfortunately, dopamine cannot be used because it does not pass the blood-brain barrier (BBB). This uses one of its precursors: levodopa (L-Dopa or dihydroxyphenylalanine) in order to increase the production of dopamine in the brain. This substance used since the 1960s, passes the BBB, is transformed into dopamine, the place where it is lacking in the brain. In the rest of the body, levodopa is destroyed by an enzyme (L-Dopadecarboxylase) which reduces the amount available for the passage in the brain. Therefore levodopa is now systematically associated with another molecule (the benserazide or carbidopa) responsible for inhibiting its degradation by blocking the L-Dopadecarboxylase outside the brain.. Close to the levodopa in the principle of action, molecules that mimic the action of dopamine have also been discovered: these are the dopamine ...
Dystonia in Parhnsons Disease: Clinical and Pharmacological Features W. H. Poewe, MD," A. J. Lees, MD,t and G. M. Stern, M D t We studied the features of dystonia in 9 patients with untreated idiopathic Parkinsons disease and in 56 patients on sustained treatment with L-dopa Dystonia was seen as an initial symptom in patients with both early- and late-onset Parkinsons disease and included action dystonia of the limbs and cranial dystonia Although the coexistence of parkinsonism and dystonia suggests a common pathophysiology, antiparkinsonian drugs did not consistently influence dystonic spasms. L-dopa-induced dystonia was seen as an off-period, biphasic, or peak-dose phenomenon. Each type showed a distinctive pattern of localization of dystonic spasms, possibly reflecting neurochemical aspects of basal ganglia somatotopy. Neuropharmacological studies performed in 12 patients suggest that off-period dystonia is genuinely induced by L-dopa and best relieved by antiparkinsonian agents. Poewe WH, ...
In a mouse model of early Parkinsons disease (PD), animals displayed movement deficits, loss of tyrosine-hydroxylase-positive fibers in the striatum, and astro-gliosis and micro-gliosis in the substantia nigra, without the loss of nigral dopaminergic neurons. These findings, which may cast light on the molecular processes involved in the initial stages of PD, are available in the current issue of Restorative Neurology and Neuroscience.
These data originally show that blockade of CB1 receptors augments the antiparkinsonian effects of l-DOPA in the rhesus monkey. The study also shows that CB1 receptor antagonism has 1) no intrinsic antiparkinsonian effects and 2) no antidyskinetic effects. Previous studies of cannabinoid agonists and antagonists have shown conflicting results where, for example, antagonists were found to be effective as monotherapy and to have antidyskinetic effects (Fernandez-Espejo et al., 2005; van der Stelt et al., 2005). Because we used MPTP-treated macaques that closely mimic motor behavior and basal ganglia anatomy of humans, and we used the inclusive experimental design from monotherapy to multiple aspects of levodopa coadministration, this study provides critical data to clarify the potential role of CB1 antagonists in the therapy of PD. Most previous work in primates derives from trials with the CB1 antagonist rimonabant (SR 141716A) in marmosets. Despite a homologous neuroanatomy (Hardman et al., ...
Author: Holiga, Štefan et al.; Genre: Poster; Title: Investigating differences in brain function with levodopa treatment in Parkinsons disease using fMRI
Levodopa has been the basic treatment of patients with Parkinsons disease for the last 30 years. However, with time nearly all patients develop fluctuations in motor performance correlated to levodopa plasma concentrations.. Animal studies have shown that levodopa is actively transported across the intestinal mucosa, possibly by special transport carriers for large neutral amino acids. Therefore, competition for intestinal absorption between levodopa and large neutral ammo acids is possible. It has also been speculated that levodopa is absorbed via the intestinal wall through paracellular means related to net water flux. The effect of these factors on levodopa absorption in humans has been examined in two pharmacokinetic studies. A recently developed jejunal perfusion technique, Loc-I-Gut, was utilised revealing a decreased absorption of levodopa in the presence of leucine, but no influence of net water flux on levodopa absorption. Consequently, it can be concluded that levodopa uses the same ...
Patients attending a regional movement disorder clinic with idiopathic PD (by UK Brain Bank criteria) and prescribed one or more antiparkinson drug (including dopamine agonist or levodopa) were invited to participate. Patients who were unable to manipulate the electronic pill monitoring bottles, or whose compliance would be adversely affected by using the electronic pill monitoring bottles (e.g. those reliant on a compliance aid) were excluded. The study received ethics approval and signed consent was obtained. During the study medication was adjusted according to clinical need. The increase in levodopa equivalent units during the study period was calculated according to established formula[12].. Baseline assessments of unified Parkinsons disease rating scale (UPDRS), Hoehn and Yahr, Schwab and England, mini-mental state examination, geriatric depression scale and quality of life score (PDQ 39) were performed. Clinical scoring was blind to patient group and performed in an on state. The UPDRS ...
Studies examining the mortality from Parkinsons disease have been reviewed to assess the impact of levodopa therapy. These include national mortality data taken from death certificate returns, cohort studies comparing the deaths observed in a group
In 6-OHDA-lesioned rats, repeated administration produces behavioral sensitization, manifested as a marked increase in l-Dopa-induced contralateral rotations across days of treatment (Henry et al., 1998). Behavioral sensitization has been suggested to predict the development of dyskinesias after chronic treatment with l-Dopa (Tronci et al., 2007). Here, we found that l-Dopa produced behavioral sensitization after only 4 days of treatment in 6-OHDA-lesioned rats. However, when l-Dopa was delivered concurrently with preladenant, the rats displayed no behavioral sensitization for as long as 23 days of treatment. The blockade of behavioral sensitization by preladenant in this model suggests that this agent may not only have antiparkinsonian effects on its own but also may reduce dyskinesias when used in combination with l-Dopa.. Aside from the motor symptoms that characterize PD, there are a collection of nonmotor symptoms that are not treated by current pharmacotherapies. One of the most severe is ...
The new sub-analysis of the LARGO trial (Lasting effect in Adjunct therapy with Rasagiline Given Once daily), found that giving Azilect to patients already optimized on levodopa, with or without concomitant dopamine agonist (DA) treatment, significantly reduced daily "OFF" time (when the effects of medication wear off and PD symptoms return) by an average of 1.2 hours when compared to placebo, resulting in a clinically meaningful improvement in daily function for patients, without a related increase in dopaminergic adverse events. Patients experienced a corresponding increase in "ON" time (when medication is working) without troublesome dyskinesias, the involuntary movements characteristic of long-term PD therapy ...

Patients with Parkinsons disease can show brief but dramatic normalization of motor activity in highly arousing situations, a phenomenon often termed paradoxical kinesis. We sought to mimic this in a controlled experimental environment. Nine patients with Parkinsons disease and nine age-matched healthy controls were asked to grip a force dynamometer as quickly and strongly as possible in response to a visual cue. A loud (96 dB) auditory stimulus was delivered at the same time as the visual cue in ~50% of randomly selected trials. In patients with Parkinsons disease, the experiment was conducted after overnight withdrawal of antiparkinsonian drugs and again 1 h after patients had taken their usual morning medication. Patients showed improvements in the peak rate of force development and the magnitude of force developed when loud auditory stimuli accompanied visual cues. Equally, they showed improvements in the times taken to reach the peak rate of force development and their maximal force. The
Background Central neurocytoma (CN) is an intraventricular tumor that affects young adults. It has a favorable prognosis after adequate surgical intervention; however, an aggressive course may take place in some cases. Objective The aim of this study was to evaluate the rate of shunt insertion and outcome of control in CN excision. Patients and methods Ten patients were included in this study and followed up for 24 months. Data collected included age, sex, clinical presentation, early morbidity and mortality, and radiological findings (tumor location, features, residual, recurrence, and hydrocephalus). All patients underwent surgery for total or subtotal excision through a transcortical or transcallosal approach. An external ventricular drain was inserted and then removed and replaced by a shunt, if indicated. Histopathology and the MIB index were used to confirm diagnosis and guide the follow-up. Adjuvant radiotherapy or gamma knife radiosurgery was used for residual or recurrence. Results ...

This article originally appeared in the Spring 2009 edition of PDFs quarterly newsletter, News & Review.. We all know that Parkinsons disease (PD) is progressive, meaning it will worsen over time. But do we know how it progresses? Does it progress the same way for everyone? If you know others living with PD, you may notice that their symptoms are different from yours (you have tremor, they report stiffness) or perhaps proceed at very different rates. To examine your progression, your doctor may observe your gait, symptoms and balance, most likely using the Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale, or UPDRS. Other than these observations, your doctor cannot objectively measure - through a blood test, MRI imaging, or another mechanism - changes in your Parkinsons disease, nor can he or she definitively establish a Parkinsons diagnosis. These challenges prompted the creation of the Longitudinal and Biomarker Study in PD (LABS-PD), sponsored by the Parkinson Study Group (PSG) and supported by ...

The purpose was to investigate some aspects of epidemiology, risk factors and treatment with ECT in advanced Parkinsons disease (PD).. In study I, we performed a descriptive epidemiologic population-based survey in the Central Health Care District in Östergötland in south-east Sweden, with a population of almost 150,000 inhabitants 1989. The case finding was accomplished in three ways: 1. Collection of all prescriptions for Parkinsons disease. 2. Search in medical files. 3. Checking with all nursing homes in the area. The crude prevalence was found to be 115 per 100,000 inhabitants. When we used the European Standard Population as a tool for easy comparisons of PD prevalence between different areas and time periods 76 PD-cases per 100,000 inhabitants were found. The corresponding incidences were 11.0 (crude) and 7.9 (age standardised) per 100,000 person-years. Mean age at onset was 65.6. A low prevalence and a high age at onset suggested that e.g. environmental factors could influence the ...

Replacing lost brain cells may help undo the damage caused by Parkinsons disease, researchers believe.Parkinsons disease affects more than 4.6 million people worldwide and this number is set to double by 2030 as the population ages. While the symptoms of this movement disorder can be alleviated, there is currently no way to stop it from progressing.
When will newer and better medications be available for people with Parkinsons disease (PD)? How will they help you or a loved one who lives with PD? We cannot know these answers for sure, but we can observe the possibilities by looking at the research pipeline - the process by which researchers find and test new treatments.. Currently, scientists are focusing on two major categories: therapies that aim to ease the symptoms of PD, and those that show promise to slow or stop its progression. Treatments in both categories are making their way through the pipeline. While it is difficult to predict which ones will come to market next, we can look at trends to see where we are now and where we might be in the future. The Drug Development Process. Scientists typically identify new medicines in one of two ways. One is to test compounds that are already approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in treating other diseases to see whether they might also work for Parkinsons disease. ...

All information about the latest scientific publications of the Clínica Universidad de Navarra. Pathophysiology of levodopa-induced dyskinesias in Parkinsons disease: problems with the current model
GOCOVRI (extended release amantadine) is the first-and-only FDA approved medication for levodopa-induced dyskinesia in patients with Parkinsons disease.
Introduction- Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) is an inevitable complication of the long-term treatment of Parkinsons disease (PD) with levodopa. In a rat model of LID, we observed that animals of almost identical genetic but slightly different environmental backgrounds displayed a very different profile in terms of their development and severity of LID. Materials and methods-We hypothesised that this heterogeneity can be attributed to different levels of anxiety in individual animals. We evaluated the basal anxiety level of rats in this study using the elevated plus maze (EPM), open field (OF) test, and plasma corticosterone level. These animals then received unilateral 6-hydroxydopamine lesions of the nigrostriatal pathway after which they were primed to develop LID. Finally, we manipulated the anxiety level of these animals by citalopram treatment over a 9-week period before they were killed. Results-Although we could not establish an association between the anxiety level of rats with either the

Apart from the typical motor symptoms, Parkinsons disease is characterized by a wide range of different non-motor symptoms, which are highly prevalent in all stages of the disease and have an incisive influence on quality of life. Moreover, their treatment continues to be challenging. In this review, we critically summarize the evidence for the impact of dopaminergic therapies on non-motor symptoms in Parkinsons disease. We performed a PubMed search to identify relevant clinical studies that investigated the response of non-motor symptoms to dopaminergic therapy. In the domain of neuropsychiatric disturbances, there is increasing evidence that dopamine agonists can ameliorate depression or anxiety. Other neuropsychiatric symptoms such as psychosis or impulse control disorders can also be worsened or even be induced by dopaminergic agents. For the treatment of sleep disturbances, it is essential to identify different subtypes of sleep pathologies. While there is for example profound evidence ...

The main use of selegiline is in the treatment of Parkinsons disease. It can be used on its own or in a combination with another agent, most often L-DOPA.[6] For the newly diagnosed Parkinsons patients, some claim that selegiline slows the progression of the disease, although this claim has not been widely accepted and the methodology has been rejected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[7] It delays the time point when the L-DOPA (levodopa) treatment becomes necessary from 10-12 to 18 months,[8] which is beneficial despite not being definitive evidence of neuroprotection. The idea behind adding selegiline to levodopa is to decrease the dose of levodopa and thus reduce the motor complications of levodopa therapy.[9] Comparisons of patients on levodopa + placebo vs levodopa + selegiline showed that selegiline allowed reduction of the levodopa dose by about 40%. Selegiline + levodopa also extended the time until the levodopa dose had to be increased from 2.6 to 4.9 years.[8] As a result ...

Striatal dopamine deficiency is the core feature of the pathology of Parkinsons disease (PD) and dopamine replacement with L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) is the mainstay of PD treatment. Unfortunately, chronic L-DOPA administration is marred by the emergence of dyskinesia and wearing-off. Alternatives to L-DOPA for alleviation of parkinsonism are of interest, though to date none can match the efficacy of L-DOPA. Catechol-O-methyltransferase and monoamine oxidase inhibitors are currently used to alleviate wearing-off, but they do not increase on-time without exacerbating dyskinesia. Alternate approaches to dopamine replacement in parkinsonism generally, and to wearing-off and dyskinesia specifically, are therefore urgently needed. Inasmuch as they increase synaptic dopamine levels, dopamine transporter (DAT) inhibitors, be they selective or having actions on noradrenaline or serotonin transporters (NAT and SERT), theoretically represent an attractive way to alleviate parkinsonism per se ...
OBJECTIVES: To compare bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of single doses of 3 different levodopa formulations given orally in healthy volunteers. Two marketed formulations, standard levodopa/carbidopa, 100/25 mg (LC-100), and dispersible levodopa/benserazide, 100/25 mg (LB-100), were used as reference formulations for a newly developed dispersible microtablet formulation of levodopa/carbidopa, 5/1.25 mg (LC-5). The microtablets are intended for individualized dosing of levodopa/carbidopa in Parkinson disease by means of an electronic dose dispenser with a built-in diary for symptom registration.. METHODS: A single-dose, open, randomized, 3-way crossover study was performed in 19 healthy subjects. Concentrations of levodopa, carbidopa, and the metabolite 3-O-MD in plasma were determined after intake of 100 mg of levodopa, that is, one tablet of reference formulations and 20 microtablets of the new formulation.. RESULTS: The LC-5 microtablets were bioequivalent to the LC-100 tablets in area ...

Entacapone, sold under the brand name Comtan among others, is a medication commonly used in combination with other medications for the treatment of Parkinsons disease. Entacapone together with levodopa and carbidopa allows levodopa to have a longer effect in the brain and reduces Parkinsons disease signs and symptoms for a greater length of time than levodopa and carbidopa therapy alone. Entacapone is a selective and reversible inhibitor of the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT). When taken together with levodopa (L-DOPA) and carbidopa, entacapone stops catechol-O-methyltransferase from breaking down and metabolizing levodopa, resulting in an overall increase of levodopa remaining in the brain and body. Carbidopa/levodopa/entacapone (Stalevo), a medication developed by Orion Pharma and marketed by Novartis, is a single tablet formulation that contains levodopa, carbidopa, and entacapone. Entacapone is used in addition to levodopa and carbidopa for people with Parkinsons disease to ...
Objective Impulse control disorders (ICDs) and dopamine dysregulation syndrome (DDS) are important behavioral problems that affect a subpopulation of patients with Parkinsons disease (PD) and typically result in markedly diminished quality of life for patients and their caregivers. We aimed to investigate the effects of subthalamic nucleus (STN) and internal globus pallidus (GPi) deep brain stimulation (DBS) on ICD/DDS frequency and dopaminergic medication usage. Methods A retrospective chart review was performed on 159 individuals who underwent unilateral or bilateral PD DBS surgery in either STN or GPi. According to published criteria, pre- and post-operative records were reviewed to categorize patients both pre- and post-operatively as having ICD, DDS, both ICD and DDS, or neither ICD nor DDS. Group differences in patient demographics, clinical presentations, levodopa equivalent dose (LED), and change in diagnosis following unilateral/bilateral by brain target (STN or GPi DBS placement) were
Although Parkinsons disease is primarily considered to be a motor disorder, it has inarguable effects on cognition and personality. The cluster of neuropsychiatric sequelae known as impulse-control disorders has been of particular interest in recent years, perhaps owing to the potentially disastrous effects that such behaviors can have on individuals and families. Research has suggested that impulse control disorders are significantly more prevalent among individuals with Parkinsons disease, particularly with regards to pathological gambling and hypersexuality, and has further suggested that these disorders are significantly and substantively affected by the use of dopamine agonists. Treatment options for impulse control disorders tend to revolve around dopamine agonist dose reduction or cessation. The use of psychosocial strategies, or deep-brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus may also be considered in the management of patients with impulse control disorders ...

        Antiparkinson Agents,  AntidyskineticsIsothazine - Antiparkinson Agents, Antidyskinetics

Ethopropazine, a phenothiazine and antidyskinetic, is used in the treatment of Parkinsons disease. By improving muscle control and reducing stiffness, this drug permits more normal movements of the body as the disease symptoms are reduced.

Ethopropazine also has a slight antihistaminic and local anesthetic effect ...
