Benserazide: An inhibitor of DOPA DECARBOXYLASE that does not enter the central nervous system. It is often given with LEVODOPA in the treatment of parkinsonism to prevent the conversion of levodopa to dopamine in the periphery, thereby increasing the amount that reaches the central nervous system and reducing the required dose. It has no antiparkinson actions when given alone.Levodopa: The naturally occurring form of DIHYDROXYPHENYLALANINE and the immediate precursor of DOPAMINE. Unlike dopamine itself, it can be taken orally and crosses the blood-brain barrier. It is rapidly taken up by dopaminergic neurons and converted to DOPAMINE. It is used for the treatment of PARKINSONIAN DISORDERS and is usually given with agents that inhibit its conversion to dopamine outside of the central nervous system.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.Aromatic-L-Amino-Acid Decarboxylases: An enzyme group with broad specificity. The enzymes decarboxylate a range of aromatic amino acids including dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA DECARBOXYLASE); TRYPTOPHAN; and HYDROXYTRYPTOPHAN.Dyskinesias: Abnormal involuntary movements which primarily affect the extremities, trunk, or jaw that occur as a manifestation of an underlying disease process. Conditions which feature recurrent or persistent episodes of dyskinesia as a primary manifestation of disease may be referred to as dyskinesia syndromes (see MOVEMENT DISORDERS). Dyskinesias are also a relatively common manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES.Carbidopa: An inhibitor of DOPA DECARBOXYLASE, preventing conversion of LEVODOPA to dopamine. It is used in PARKINSON DISEASE to reduce peripheral adverse effects of LEVODOPA. It has no antiparkinson actions by itself.Droxidopa: A precursor of noradrenaline that is used in the treatment of parkinsonism. The racemic form (DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine) has also been used, and has been investigated in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension. There is a deficit of noradrenaline as well as of dopamine in Parkinson's disease and it has been proposed that this underlies the sudden transient freezing seen usually in advanced disease. Administration of DL-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine has been claimed to result in an improvement in this phenomenon but controlled studies have failed to demonstrate improvement.

L-DOPS-Accelerated recovery of locomotor function in rats subjected to sensorimotor cortex ablation injury: pharmacobehavioral studies. (1/67)

Central norepinephrine (NE) has been shown to play a beneficial role in amphetamine-facilitated recovery of behavior. To give insight into understanding the mechanism, the present studies were conducted to examine (a) the effects of L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (L-DOPS) combined with benserazide (BSZ; a peripheral aromatic amino acid decarboxylase inhibitor) and L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA), precursors of NE and dopamine (DA), respectively, on the recovery from beam-walking performance deficits in rats subjected to unilateral sensorimotor cortex ablation injury, and (b) the relationships between the behavioral recovery and the frequency of postoperative training and the size of ablation injury. It was found that the combined treatments with L-DOPS and BSZ promoted the recovery of locomotor function as early as 24 hours after injury. L-DOPA alone, however, did not facilitate behavioral recovery. The results of assay for the tissue levels of NE and its major metabolite (3-methoxy-4-hydoxyphenylethylene glycol; MHPG) in the brain using high-pressure liquid chromotography showed MHPG, but not NE, significantly increased in the cerebellum and the hippocampus. The behavioral recovery was also significantly correlated with the frequency of training subsequent to injury, but inversely with the size of cortex ablation. These results suggest that NE is likely to modulate functional recovery in this rodent model.  (+info)

Population pharmacokinetics of tolcapone in parkinsonian patients in dose finding studies. (2/67)

AIMS: To use pharmacostatistical models to characterize tolcapone's pharmacokinetics in parkinsonian patients, and to identify any demographic subpopulations which may be at risk of either under- or over-exposure to this catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor. METHODS: Four hundred and twelve patients participated in three multicentre, parallel, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-finding studies and received either placebo or tolcapone (50, 200 or 400 mg three times daily) in addition to levodopa/decarboxylase inhibitor therapy. Sparse blood samples were obtained from 275 patients for tolcapone assay and the concentrations (1414 in total) were analysed using the NONMEM program. RESULTS: The pharmacokinetic model which best described the data was a two-compartment open model with first-order absorption and possibly a lag-time. Tolcapone pharmacokinetics were shown to be stable, with no systematic trend between 2 and 6 weeks of treatment. The absorption of the drug was shown to be rapid and concomitant food intake had only a minor effect on the relative bioavailability (10-20% reduction compared with fasting). The overall clearance of tolcapone could be estimated with good precision (approximately 4. 5-5 l h-1 ), and none of the investigated covariates (e.g. sex, age, body weight) had any clinically significant influence on this parameter. The volume of distribution showed relatively high variability and was calculated to be approximately 30 l, leading to an estimated half-life in patients of approximately 5-8 h. CONCLUSIONS: Using sparse concentrations and mixed effect-effects modelling analysis it is possible to describe the pharmacokinetics of tolcapone in parkinsonian populations. The parameter estimates obtained agreed with those obtained from conventional pharmacokinetic studies and no subpopulation was shown to be at risk of either under- or over-exposure to tolcapone.  (+info)

Effects of benserazide on L-DOPA-derived extracellular dopamine levels and aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase activity in the striatum of 6-hydroxydopamine-lesioned rats. (3/67)

Benserazide is commonly used for Parkinson's disease in combination with L-DOPA as a peripheral aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) inhibitor. However, recent studies using intact animals indicate that benserazide acts also in the central nervous system. We determined the influence of benserazide on the central AADC activity in rats with dopaminergic denervation and observed changes in extracellular dopamine (DA) levels after benserazide and L-DOPA administration. First, using in vivo microdialysis technique, we measured extracellular DA levels in the striatum of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-lesioned rats treated with benserazide and L-DOPA. Second, we measured AADC activity in the striatal tissues after benserazide administration. Although administration of 5, 10 and 50 mg/kg benserazide to 6-OHDA-lesioned rats showed an identical increase in exogenous L-DOPA-derived extracellular DA levels, the time to reach the peak DA levels were significantly prolonged by benserazide dose-dependently. The AADC activity in the denervated striatal tissues showed a significant decrease by 10 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg benserazide. These results suggest that benserazide reduces the central AADC activity in the striatum of rats with nigrostriatal denervation, which leads to changes in the metabolism of exogenous L-DOPA. Central activity of AADC inhibitors should be taken into consideration when they are used both in experimental and clinical studies on Parkinson's disease.  (+info)

Improvement of sleep hypopnea by antiparkinsonian drugs in a patient with Parkinson's disease: a polysomnographic study. (4/67)

An 80-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of bradykinesia, muscle rigidity and respiratory dysfunction during sleep. Concerning bradykinesia and muscle rigidity, we diagnosed him as the early/moderate stage of Parkinson's disease without autonomic dysfunction. Polysomnography (PSG) showed a series of obstructive hypopneas and apneas. After administration of antiparkinsonian drugs, rigidity of the neck and trunk was diminished along with a drastic decrease in hypopnea on PSG. We consider that sleep hypopnea in this patient is caused by involvement of the striated musculature surrounding the upper-airway and/or rigidity in the trunk. These conditions are treatable with antiparkinsonian drugs.  (+info)

3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine reverses the motor deficits in Pitx3-deficient aphakia mice: behavioral characterization of a novel genetic model of Parkinson's disease. (5/67)

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by a loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. There is a need for genetic animal models of PD for screening and in vivo testing of novel restorative therapeutic agents. Although current genetic models of PD produce behavioral impairment and nigrostriatal dysfunction, they do not reproduce the loss of midbrain dopaminergic neurons and 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) reversible behavioral deficits. Here, we demonstrate that Pitx3-deficient aphakia (ak) mice, which have been shown previously to exhibit a major loss of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons, display motor deficits that are reversed by L-DOPA and evidence of "dopaminergic supersensitivity" in the striatum. Thus, ak mice represent a novel genetic model exhibiting useful characteristics to test the efficacy of symptomatic therapies for PD and to study the functional changes in the striatum after dopamine depletion and L-DOPA treatment.  (+info)

The actions of dihydroxyphenylalanine and dihydroxyphenylserine on the sleep-wakefulness cycle of the rat after peripheral decarboxylase inhibition. (6/67)

1. The actions of dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) and dihydroxyphenylserine (DOPS) were assessed on the sleep-wakefulness cycle of male Wistar rats. 2. In comparative studies the extracerebral decarboxylase was inhibited with serinetrihydroxybenzylhydrazide (RO 4-4602) before injection of DOPA or DOPS. 3. DOPA (80-160 mg/kg, i.p.) with or without previous inhibition of the peripheral decarboxylase gave rise to an initial significant increase of slow wave activity, which may be related to a release of 5-hydroxytryptamine. 4. During the subsequent 8 h sessions, DOPA significantly decreased slow wave sleep and rapid eye movement sleep (REM) and increased wakefulness. 5. DOPS (80-160 mg/kg, i.p.) did not significantly modify the sleep-wakefulness cycle apart from a decrease of the latency for the first REM episode after 160 mg/kg in the RO 4-4602 pretreated animals.  (+info)

Behavioral effects of dopaminergic agonists in transgenic mice overexpressing human wildtype alpha-synuclein. (7/67)

Overexpression of alpha-synuclein causes familial Parkinson's disease and abnormal aggregates of the protein are present in sporadic cases of the disease. We have examined the behavioral effects of direct and indirect dopaminergic agonists in transgenic mice expressing human alpha-synuclein under the Thy-1 promoter (Thy1-aSyn, alpha-synuclein overexpressor), which exhibit progressive impairments in behavioral tests sensitive to nigrostriatal dopamine dysfunction. Male Thy1-aSyn and wild-type mice received vehicle, benserazide/L-DOPA (25 mg/kg, i.p.), high (2 mg/kg, s.c.) and low doses (0.125, 0.25, 0.5 mg/kg, s.c.) of apomorphine, and amphetamine (5 mg/kg, i.p.), beginning at 3 months of age, and were tested on the challenging beam, spontaneous activity, pole test, and gait. l-DOPA had a paradoxical effect and worsened the deficits in Thy1-aSyn mice compared with controls, whereas the high dose of apomorphine only produced few deficits above those already present in Thy1-aSyn. In contrast to wild-type mice, Thy1-aSyn mice did not show amphetamine-induced stereotypies. The results indicate that chronic overexpression of alpha-synuclein led to abnormal pharmacological responses in mice.  (+info)

Evaluation of an osmotic pump for microdialysis sampling in an awake and untethered rat. (8/67)

The feasibility of using an osmotic pump in place of a syringe pump for microdialysis sampling in rat brain was investigated. The use of an osmotic pump permits the rat to be free from the constraints of the standard tethered system. The in vitro flow rates of a microdialysis syringe pump (set at 10.80 microl/h) and the osmotic pump (pump specifications were 11.35 microl/h) with no probe attached were compared, yielding results of 10.87 microl/h+/-1.7% and 10.95 microl/h+/-8.0%, respectively. The average of four flow rate experiments in vivo yielded R.S.D.s less than 10% and an average flow rate of 11.1 microl/h. Following the flow rate studies, in vivo sampling of neurotransmitters was accomplished with the osmotic pump coupled to a microdialysis probe implanted in the brain. Finally, after determination of basal levels of 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), homovanillic acid (HVA), and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid (5-HIAA) in the rats, the rats were dosed with benserazide followed by l-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (l-DOPA). The results from the dosing study showed at least a 10-fold increase in compounds in the l-DOPA metabolic pathway (DOPAC and HVA) and a slight or no increase in 5-HIAA (serotonin metabolic pathway.) These results indicate that the osmotic pump is a viable alternative to the syringe pump for use in microdialysis sampling.  (+info)

PURPOSE: To study the PK interaction of L-dopa/benserazide in rats. METHODS: Male rats received a single oral dose of 80 mg/kg L-dopa or 20 mg/kg benserazide or 80/20 mg/kg L-dopa/benserazide. Based on plasma concentrations the kinetics of L-dopa, 3-O-methyldopa (3-OMD), benserazide, and its metabolite Ro 04-5127 were characterized by noncompartmental analysis and a compartmental model where total L-dopa clearance was the sum of the clearances mediated by amino-acid-decarboxylase (AADC), catechol-O-methyltransferase and other enzymes. In the model Ro 04-5127 inhibited competitively the L-dopa clearance by AADC. RESULTS: The coadministration of L-dopa/benserazide resulted in a major increase in systemic exposure to L-dopa and 3-OMD and a decrease in L-dopa clearance. The compartmental model allowed an adequate description of the observed L-dopa and 3-OMD concentrations in the absence and presence of benserazide. It had an advantage over noncompartmental analysis because it could describe the ...

Fifty four patients with idiopathic Parkinsons disease receiving levodopa therapy were studied. Thirty three of these patients displayed peak-dose dyskinesia. Neither the duration of Parkinsons disease nor the duration of levodopa therapy discriminated between patients with and patients without peak-dose dyskinesia. Consequently, these criteria could not determine whether the first appearance of peak-dose dyskinesia depends on the duration of Parkinsons disease--a factor that is related to the severity of the disease--or on the duration of levodopa therapy. A subgroup of nineteen patients with unilateral or unequivocally asymmetrical peak-dose dyskinesia was examined 12 hours after withdrawal of levodopa. A levodopa testdose provoked unilateral or unilateral preponderant peak-dose dyskinesia which always involved the most severely affected side and which also happened to be the side of onset of the disease. This demonstrates that the severity of Parkinsons disease is the main risk factor for ...
Tolcapone (brand name Tasmar) is a drug used to treat Parkinsons disease (PD). It is a selective, potent and reversible nitrocatechol-type inhibitor of the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT). It has demonstrated significant liver toxicity, which has led to suspension of marketing authorisations in a number of countries. In comparison with entacapone, another nitrocatechol COMT inhibitor, tolcapone has a longer half life (2.9 hours vs. 0.8 hours) and can better penetrate the blood-brain barrier, acting both in the central nervous system and in the periphery. However, entacapone is less toxic for the liver. Tolcapone is used in the treatment of Parkinsons disease as an adjunct to levodopa/carbidopa or levodopa/benserazide medications. Levodopa is a prodrug for dopamine, which reduces Parkinson symptoms; carbidopa and benserazide are aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) inhibitors. Without administration of tolcapone, the beneficial effects of levodopa tend to wear off more quickly, ...
Aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin. Children with defects in the AADC gene show compromised development, particularly in motor function. Drug therapy has only marginal effects on some of the symptoms and does not change early childhood mortality. Here, we performed adeno-associated viral vector-mediated gene transfer of the human AADC gene bilaterally into the putamen of four patients 4 to 6 years of age. All of the patients showed improvements in motor performance: One patient was able to stand 16 months after gene transfer, and the other three patients achieved supported sitting 6 to 15 months after gene transfer. Choreic dyskinesia was observed in all patients, but this resolved after several months. Positron emission tomography revealed increased uptake by the putamen of 6-[18F]fluorodopa, a tracer for AADC. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis showed increased dopamine and serotonin levels after gene transfer. ...

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 ...

The present study confirms and extends previous findings28 29 that tolcapone enhances the efficacy of levodopa. Whereas initial studies were focused on single dose6 or short term (one to six weeks) multiple dose22 26 coadministration of tolcapone with levodopa/decarboxylase inhibitor, the present study showed that multiple dose (tid) treatment with tolcapone results in reduced severity of "wearing off" type motor fluctuations in levodopa treated patients for three months and that this response is maintained over time.. Treatment with tolcapone significantly decreased mean "off" time (by ,20%) and increased mean "on" time (by ,25%), compared with placebo. Analysis of primary end point "on/off" data disclosed that both tolcapone dosages were equally effective in increasing "on" time, but the 100 mg tid dosage was more effective in decreasing "off" time. However, the mean reduction in levodopa dosage by month 3 was greater with 200 mg tolcapone tid than with 100 mg tid This reduction was maintained ...
This trial will investigate the effect of Dipraglurant in the treatment of Levodopa-Induced Dyskinesia associated with Parkinsons Disease.
GOCOVRI (extended release amantadine) is the first-and-only FDA approved medication for levodopa-induced dyskinesia in patients with Parkinsons disease.
In normal dopamine and serotonin (5-HT) neurotransmitter synthesis, AADC is not the rate-limiting step in either reaction. However, AADC becomes the rate-limiting step of dopamine synthesis in patients treated with L-DOPA (such as in Parkinsons disease), and the rate-limiting step of serotonin synthesis in people treated with 5-HTP (such as in mild depression or dysthymia). AADC is inhibited by carbidopa outside of the blood brain barrier to inhibit the premature conversion of L-DOPA to dopamine in the treatment of Parkinsons. In humans, AADC is also the rate-limiting enzyme in the formation of trace amines. Deficiency of AADC is associated with various symptoms as severe developmental delay, oculogyric crises and autonomic dysfunction. The molecular and clinical spectrum of AAAC deficiency is heterogeneous. The first case of AADC deficiency was described in twin brothers 1990. Patients can be treated with dopamine agonists, MAO inhibitors, and pyridoxine (vitamin B6).[6] Clinical phenotype ...
Scientists believe that they may have discovered why long-term use of levodopa can lead to dyskinesia in Parkinsons disease patients, a finding that could lead to new ways of treating or prevention dyskinesia.
Carbidopa (CD), a competitive inhibitor of aromatic l-amino acid decarboxylase that does not cross the blood-brain barrier, is routinely administered with levodopa (LD) to patients with Parkinson disease (PD) to reduce the peripheral decarboxylation
The results of these studies will provide insight for the Phase 2B study design. Specifically, the PET study is expected to demonstrate the efficiency of dipraglurant binding to mGluR5 as plasma concentration of the compound is increased. The clinical study is expected to help us understand the absolute availability of dipraglurant to interact with mGluR5. These data will be critical to rapidly moving the program into Phase IIB and Phase III studies and ultimately approval of the compound. ...
Dopamine β-hydroxylase (DBH) converts dopamine (DA) to norepinephrine (NE) in noradrenergic/adrenergic cells. DBH deficiency prevents NE production and causes sympathetic failure, hypotension and ptosis in humans and mice; DBH knockout (Dbh -/-) mice reveal other NE deficiency phenotypes including embryonic lethality, delayed growth, and behavioral defects. Furthermore, a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the human DBH gene promoter (-970C,T; rs1611115) is associated with variation in serum DBH activity and with several neurological- and neuropsychiatric-related disorders, although its impact on DBH expression is controversial. Phenotypes associated with DBH deficiency are typically treated with L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (DOPS), which can be converted to NE by aromatic acid decarboxylase (AADC) in the absence of DBH. In this study, we generated transgenic mice carrying a human bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) encompassing the DBH coding locus as well as ~45 kb of upstream and ~107 ...
Noradrenaline (NA) is a neurotransmitter produced in the central nervous system by neurons localized essentially in the brainstem, particularly in the locus ceruleus (LC) (Foote et al., 1983). Through the activation of adrenoceptors and corresponding second messenger systems (Molinoff, 1984), NA participates in a variety of motor and mental functions, such as locomotor control, cognition, motivation, and attention (Foote et al., 1983). In addition to these classic transmitter signaling functions, NA is thought to play a key role in neuronal survival, differentiation and plasticity, and to participate in brain repair mechanisms. For instance, compounds that mimic or increase LC output, including NA itself, its precursorl-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine, and amphetamine, improve behavioral recovery (Feeney, 1998), stimulate neural sprouting and synaptogenesis (Lee et al., 1994; Stroemer et al., 1998) and limit neuronal death in experimental models of cerebral ischemia (Lee et al., 1994).

AU - Caldara, R.. PY - 1982. Y1 - 1982. N2 - We have previously reported that labetalol infusion increases prolactin (PRL) secretion in hypertensive patients. In an attempt to investigate the site where labetalol stimulates PRL, the drug was infused intravenously (100 mg) into healthy subjects, both under basal conditions and after pretreatment with L-dopa plus carbidopa (250 mg and 25 mg respectively every 6 h for 1 day), since this regimen has been reported to blunt the PRL responses to centrally acting stimuli. The effects of oral labetalol administration (100 and 200 mg) on PRL was also evaluated. Serum PRL concentration did not change after oral labetalol, whereas it was increased by intravenous drug administration. This effect was completely abolished by pretreatment with L-dopa plus carbidopa. These ...

L-DOPA crosses the protective blood-brain barrier, whereas dopamine itself cannot. Thus, L-DOPA is used to increase dopamine concentrations in the treatment of Parkinsons disease and dopamine-responsive dystonia. This treatment was made practical and proven clinically by George Cotzias and his coworkers, for which they won the 1969 Lasker Prize.[4][5] Once L-DOPA has entered the central nervous system, it is converted into dopamine by the enzyme aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase, also known as DOPA decarboxylase. Pyridoxal phosphate (vitamin B6) is a required cofactor in this reaction, and may occasionally be administered along with L-DOPA, usually in the form of pyridoxine.. Besides the central nervous system, L-DOPA is also converted into dopamine from within the peripheral nervous system. Excessive peripheral dopamine signaling causes many of the adverse side effects seen with sole L-DOPA administration. To bypass these effects, it is standard clinical practice to coadminister (with ...

Carbidopa presents a chemical denomination of N-amino-alpha-methyl-3-hydroxy-L-tyrosine monohydrate. It potently inhibits aromatic amino acid decarboxylase (DDC) and due to its chemical properties, it does not cross the blood-brain barrier. Due to its activity, carbidopa is always administered concomitantly with levodopa. An individual formulation containing solely carbidopa was generated to treat nausea in patients where the combination therapy levodopa/carbidopa is not efficient reducing nausea. The first approved product by the FDA containing only carbidopa was developed by Amerigens Pharmaceuticals Ltd and approved on 2014. On the other hand, the combination treatment of carbidopa/levodopa was originally developed by Watson Labs but the historical information by the FDA brings back to the approval of this combination therapy developed by Mayne Pharma in 1992.

In treatment naïve patients (MERIT) such events occurred at a similarly low rate with CELSENTRI and control (efavirenz). When CELSENTRI was administered to healthy volunteers at doses higher than the recommended dose, cases of symptomatic postural hypotension were seen at a greater frequency than with placebo. However, when CELSENTRI was given at the recommended dose in HIV infected patients in Phase 3 studies, postural hypotension was seen at a similar rate compared to placebo/comparator.

Carbidopa will be useful as an adjunct to levodopa in treating patient with Parkinsonism. Carbidopa is useful as it will inhibit the action of DOPA decarboxylase.
Levodopa este considerat cel mai eficient medicament pentru boala Parkinson. Este un precursor al dopaminei. Indicatia de a folosi acest medicament este reprezentat de dezechilibrul biochimic produs de depletia de dopamina in striat nuhcleus. Levodopa poate fi combinat cu inhibitor de dopa-decarboxilaza periferica, cum ar fi carbidopa sau benserazida, in scopul de a preveni distrugerea de rapid si de a obtine un control mai bun al simptomelor, cu un doze mici de levodopa.. Levodopa amelioreaza simptomele bolii, dar cu utilizarea prelungita a medicamentului si progresia bolii va aparea fenomenul de pe poarta (o scadere treptata in eficienta de droguri inainte de administrarea dozei urmatoare).. Efectele adverse de levodopa sunt importante, fiind reprezentat de miscari involuntare, diskinezie labial, lingual, trunchi, gat si membrele distonie, grimase si miscari ale capului.

De gastro-intestinale gener, der for det meste forekommer i begyndelsen af behandlingen, kan i de fleste tilfælde kontrolleres ved at tage levodopa-præparatet med lidt mad eller væske eller ved dosisnedsættelse og langsommere stigning, men kan også behandles med domperidon, som blokerer perifere dopaminerge receptorer. En længerevarende - i øvrigt uforklaret - diarré kan skyldes kombinationspræparatet, og skift til behandling med et alternativt kombinationspræparat kan ofte hurtigt standse diarréen. ** Ortostatisk hypotension kan også undertiden mindskes ved behandling med domperidon. *** Disse bivirkninger, som kan ses hos parkinsonpatienter i behandling med dopaminagonister og/eller andre dopaminerge behandlinger indeholdende levodopa, er generelt reversible ved dosisreduktion eller ved seponering af behandling. **** Undersøgelser tyder indtil videre på, at disse bivirkninger skyldes grundsygdommen og ikke den medicinske behandling. ***** Dopaminafhængighed (også kaldet det ...
BACKGROUND L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (L-DOPS), a norepinephrine (NE) prodrug, is investigational for orthostatic hypotension, which occurs commonly in Parkinsons disease. Adjunctive anti-parkinsonian drugs might interact with L-DOPS. We tested whether L-aromatic amino-acid decarboxylase inhibition by carbidopa (CAR) attenuates L-DOPS conversion to NE and blocks the pressor effect of L-DOPS, whereas catechol-O-methyltransferase inhibition by entacapone (ENT) interferes with L-DOPS metabolism and augments the pressor effect. METHODS Twelve patients with autonomic failure took 400 mg of L-DOPS with 200 mg of placebo (PLA), CAR, or ENT on different days. Plasma L-DOPS, NE, and deaminated NE metabolites (dihydroxyphenylglycol [DHPG], dihydroxymandelic acid [DHMA]) were measured. RESULTS L-DOPS+PLA and L-DOPS+ENT increased systolic pressure similarly (by 27 ± 8 and 24 ± 9 mm Hg at 3 hours). L-DOPS+CAR did not increase pressure. The peak increase in plasma NE (0.57 ± 0.11 nmol/L) averaged less
ABSTRACT. Recent pharmacological discovery on trace amineassociated receptor, type 1(TAAR1) has emphasized importance of trace amines in pathogenesis of psychoses, such as schizophrenia. TAAR1 has many ligands, including tyramine, β-phenylethylamine (PEA), amphetamines, and 3-iodothyronamine. Socalled D-neurons are putative producer of trace amines, endogenous ligands of TAAR1. The D-neuron is defined "the aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC)-containing neuron, but not dopaminergic nor serotonergic", i.e. not containing tyrosine hydroxylase nor tryptophan hydroxylase. AADC is an enzyme, also called dopa decarboxylase (DDC). The localization of D-neurons in the central nervous system has been specified into 15 groups, from the spinal cord (D1) to striatum (D15). We showed the decrease of D-neurons in D15 in postmortem brains of schizophrenia, where midbrain dopamine (DA) neurons are heavily innervated. Decrease of D-neurons may cause reduction of trace amines in the striatum, and may also ...
article{9a61eb3f-8c54-482b-b9ab-17e99c703a0d, abstract = {,p,Monoamine neurotransmitters play an important role in the modulation of sensory, motor and autonomic functions in the spinal cord. Although traditionally it is believed that in mammalian spinal cord, monoamine neurotransmitters mainly originate from the brain, accumulating evidence indicates that especially when the spinal cord is injured, they can also be produced in the spinal cord. In this review, I will present evidence for a possible pathway for two-step synthesis of dopamine and serotonin in the spinal cord. Published data from different sources and unpublished data from my own ongoing projects indicate that monoenzymatic cells expressing aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) or tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) are present in the spinal cord and that these TH and THP cells often lie in close proximity to AADC cells. Prompted by the above evidence, I hypothesize that dopamine and serotonin could be ...
Rat embryonic mesencephalic cultures were employed to evaluate the consequences of adding GM1 ganglioside to cultures lesioned with the selective neurotoxin 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+). MPP+ reduced dopamine and DOPAC content, dopamine uptake, aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase activity, and the number of tyrosine hydroxylase- immunopositive neurons. The immunopositive neurons that remained were aberrant. All of these parameters were partially restored by adding GM1 ganglioside to the cultures. The response to GM1 was not altered by prior treatment of the cultures with cytosine beta-D-arabinofuranoside to reduce the number of glial cells. Dopamine uptake activity restored by GM1 was lost if GM1 was removed from the culture.. ...
Treatment of rats with noradrenaline stimulated $H_20_2$ generation in liver mitochondria using succinate, choline or glycerol 1-phosphate as substrate. The dehydrogenase activity with either succinate or choline as substrate showed no change, whereas that with glycerol 1-phosphate increased. 2. The effect was obtained with noradrenaline, but not with dihydroxyphenylserine. 3. Phenoxybenzamine and yohimbine, but not propranolol, prevented the response to noradrenaline treatment. 4. Phenylephrine could stimulate $H_20_2$ generation, whereas isoprenaline had only a marginal effect. 5. Theophylline treatment slightly decreased the generation of $H_20_2$ in liver mitochondria, but treatment with pargyline, Ro4-1284 and dibutyryl cyclic AMP had little effect. 6. These studies showed that noradrenaline might possibly be acting through the $\alpha_2$-adrenergic system.. ...
Objective: To describe the trends for and severity of dyskinetic cerebral palsy (CP) in a European collaborative study between CP registers, the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE).. Methods: In children born in 1976-1996, the prevalence of dyskinetic CP was calculated. Walking ability, accompanying impairments and perinatal adverse events were analysed.. Results: There were 578 children with dyskinetic CP. Seventy per cent were born at term. The prevalence per 1,000 live births increased from 0.08 in the 1970s to 0.14 in the 1990s. For the 386 children (70%) with a birth weight of ≥ 2,500 g, the increase was significant (0.05 to 0.12). There was a contemporary decrease in neonatal mortality among children with a birth weight of ≥ 2,500 g. Sixteen per cent of the children walked without aids, 24% with aids and 59% needed a wheelchair. Severe learning disability was present in 52%, epilepsy in 51% and severe visual and hearing impairment in 19% and 6% respectively. Accompanying ...

General: As with levodopa, periodic evaluations of hepatic, hematopoietic, cardiovascular, and renal function are recommended during extended therapy.. Patients with chronic wide-angle glaucoma may be treated cautiously with carbidopa and levodopa provided the intraocular pressure is well-controlled and the patient is monitored carefully for changes in intraocular pressure during therapy.. Dyskinesia: Levodopa alone, as well as carbidopa and levodopa, is associated with dyskinesias. The occurrence of dyskinesias may require dosage reduction. Hallucinations/Psychotic-Like Behavior: Hallucinations and psychotic-like behavior have been reported with dopaminergic medications. In general, hallucinations present shortly after the initiation of therapy and may be responsive to dose reduction in levodopa. Hallucinations may be accompanied by confusion and to a lesser extent sleep disorder (insomnia) and excessive dreaming. Carbidopa and levodopa may have similar effects on thinking and behavior. This ...

Safety and Efficacy Study of VY-AADC01 for Advanced Parkinsons Disease. Parkinsons disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder involving loss of dopamine producing neurons located in the striatum. Levodopa is the primary treatment used to treat Parkinsons disease, which converts to dopamine by the enzyme (protein) Aromatic L-Amino Acid Decarboxylase (AADC). As PD progresses, the amount of AADC levels in the brain decreases, and in turn, reduces the amount of dopamine that is produced with each dose of levodopa.. The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of increasing AADC levels, via gene delivery. The investigational drug, termed VY-AADC-01, will be injected directly into the striatum during a neurosurgical procedure that is performed with real-time MRI imaging to monitor delivery.. Participants will continue to take their Parkinson medications, including levodopa while participating in this study.. The safety and potential clinical responses to VY-AADC-01 will be ...
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

Its pipeline also includes VY-SOD101, VY-FXN01, VY-HTT01, VY-TAU01 and VY-NAV01.
Our results provide structural evidence that corticostriatal synaptic alterations in the parkinsonian striatum are directly linked to dyskinesias per se, and not chronic l-DOPA administration, in that they were not seen in dyskinetic− or control (sham-lesioned) animals administered l-DOPA. As is well known for humans and rodents, nigrostriatal dopamine depletion followed by chronic l-DOPA results in LIDs in many subjects while some subjects remain relatively dyskinesia-free (Cotzias et al., 1969; Grandas et al., 1999; Konradi et al., 2004). The current data corroborate this observation and demonstrate that LIDs do not necessarily correlate with lesion extent (Konradi et al., 2004; Putterman et al., 2007), but, instead, with specific presynaptic and postsynaptic changes (Fig. 8). In particular, when dopamine was transiently replaced with daily l-DOPA, the initial postlesion synaptic loss was followed by a restoration of corticostriatal synapses. This restoration was partial in dyskinetic− ...

Univ.-Prof. Dr. med., Prof. h.c. (RCH) Georg F. Hoffmann. A. If the GTPCH deficiency of a child appearing in this question is autosomal dominant GTPCH deficiency, the optional doses of l-Dopa is 4 to 5mg/kg/day with carbidopa, that is, menesit or 20mg/kg/day with plain l-Dopa, that is, without carbidopa. With these doses the effects sustain more than 20-to 30 years and in some after 30 years of age, the dosis can be reduced slightly. However, at the first step of l-Dopa treatment, there are patients whose response to l-Dopa is not marked or who show aggravation of symptoms, particularly active backward extension of the neck (action retrocollis) or upward derivation of the eye balls (oculogyric crisis) or show involuntary movements such as choreic movements.. For the former patients l-Dopa should be started with small dosis and finally rather higher dosis are necessary. In some administration of tetrahydrobiopterin in addition to l-Dopa is effective. For the latter patients, it is necessary to ...

... is a benzamide,[12] derivative of morpholine,[103] which acts pharmacologically as a selective, reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase A (RIMA),[9] a type of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), and increases levels of norepinephrine (noradrenaline), dopamine, and especially serotonin.[104][105] in neuronal cells as well as in synaptic vesicles; extracellular levels also increase which results in increased monoamine receptor stimulation and suppression of REM sleep, down regulation of 3-adrenoceptors. A single 300 mg dose of moclobemide inhibits 80% of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) and 30% of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), blocking the decomposition of norepinephrine, serotonin and, to a lesser extent, dopamine. There is also some evidence pointing towards moclobemide possessing neuroprotective properties.[8] There is no cumulative effect of moclobemide centrally when taken long-term.[8] With long-term use of moclobemide, there is a significant down-regulation of B-adrenoceptors.[8] ...
... (CHF-3381, V-3381) is a drug which was formerly being investigated as an anticonvulsant and neuroprotective and is now under development for the treatment of neuropathic pain and chronic cough in Europe by Vernalis and Chiesi.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] It acts as a competitive, reversible, and non-selective monoamine oxidase inhibitor,[5][6][9] and as a low affinity, non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist.[1][2][10] A pilot study of indantadol for chronic cough was initiated in October 2009 and in April 2010 it failed to achieve significant efficacy in neuropathic pain in phase IIb clinical trials.[7][8][11][12] ...

A deficiency of tyrosine hydroxylase leads to impaired synthesis of dopamine as well as epinephrine and norepinephrine. It is represented by a progressive encephalopathy and poor prognosis. Clinical features include dystonia that is minimally or nonresponsive to levodopa, extrapyramidal symptoms, ptosis, miosis, and postural hypotension. This is a progressive and often lethal disorder, which can be improved but not cured by levodopa.[39] Response to treatment is variable and the long-term and functional outcome is unknown. To provide a basis for improving the understanding of the epidemiology, genotype/phenotype correlation and outcome of these diseases their impact on the quality of life of patients, and for evaluating diagnostic and therapeutic strategies a patient registry was established by the noncommercial International Working Group on Neurotransmitter Related Disorders (iNTD).[40] Additionally alterations in the tyrosine hydroxylase enzyme activity may be involved in disorders such as ...

... is an alkaloid found in Corydalis (Papaveraceae) and Dicentra, plants in the family Fumariaceae that can cause fatal poisoning in sheep and cattle.[citation needed] It has been shown to act as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor,[1] and inhibits biosynthesis of dopamine via inhibition of the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase.[2][3] Like apomorphine, it is reported to be an inhibitor of amyloid beta protein (Aβ) fiber formation, whose presence is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Bulbocapnine is thus a potential therapeutic under the amyloid hypothesis.[4] According to the Dorlands Medical Dictionary, it "inhibits the reflex and motor activities of striated muscle. It has been used in the treatment of muscular tremors and vestibular nystagmus".[5] A psychiatrist at Tulane University named Robert Heath carried out experiments on prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary using bulbocapnine to induce stupor.[6] This work at Tulane inspired, and was continued parallel to, experiments ...

Moclobemide is a benzamide,[12] derivative of morpholine,[103] which acts pharmacologically as a selective, reversible inhibitor of monoamine oxidase A (RIMA),[9] a type of monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI), and increases levels of norepinephrine (noradrenaline), dopamine, and especially serotonin.[104][105] in neuronal cells as well as in synaptic vesicles; extracellular levels also increase which results in increased monoamine receptor stimulation and suppression of REM sleep, down regulation of 3-adrenoceptors. A single 300 mg dose of moclobemide inhibits 80% of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) and 30% of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B), blocking the decomposition of norepinephrine, serotonin and, to a lesser extent, dopamine. There is also some evidence pointing towards moclobemide possessing neuroprotective properties.[8] There is no cumulative effect of moclobemide centrally when taken long-term.[8] With long-term use of moclobemide, there is a significant down-regulation of B-adrenoceptors.[8] ...
Indantadol (CHF-3381, V-3381) is a drug which was formerly being investigated as an anticonvulsant and neuroprotective and is now under development for the treatment of neuropathic pain and chronic cough in Europe by Vernalis and Chiesi.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] It acts as a competitive, reversible, and non-selective monoamine oxidase inhibitor,[5][6][9] and as a low affinity, non-competitive NMDA receptor antagonist.[1][2][10] A pilot study of indantadol for chronic cough was initiated in October 2009 and in April 2010 it failed to achieve significant efficacy in neuropathic pain in phase IIb clinical trials.[7][8][11][12] ...
3-Iodotyrosine, a pathway inhibitor in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter dopamine, was used to determine the effects of decreased dopamine levels in social spacing of Drosophila melanogaster. 3-4 day old flies that were fed 3-iodotyrosine for 24 hours were shown to have altered dopamine levels.[3] ...
A deficiency of tyrosine hydroxylase leads to impaired synthesis of dopamine as well as epinephrine and norepinephrine. It is represented by a progressive encephalopathy and poor prognosis. Clinical features include dystonia that is minimally or nonresponsive to levodopa, extrapyramidal symptoms, ptosis, miosis, and postural hypotension. This is a progressive and often lethal disorder, which can be improved but not cured by levodopa.[39] Response to treatment is variable and the long-term and functional outcome is unknown. To provide a basis for improving the understanding of the epidemiology, genotype/phenotype correlation and outcome of these diseases their impact on the quality of life of patients, and for evaluating diagnostic and therapeutic strategies a patient registry was established by the noncommercial International Working Group on Neurotransmitter Related Disorders (iNTD).[40] Additionally alterations in the tyrosine hydroxylase enzyme activity may be involved in disorders such as ...

Bulbocapnine is an alkaloid found in Corydalis (Papaveraceae) and Dicentra, plants in the family Fumariaceae that can cause fatal poisoning in sheep and cattle.[citation needed] It has been shown to act as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor,[1] and inhibits biosynthesis of dopamine via inhibition of the enzyme tyrosine hydroxylase.[2][3] Like apomorphine, it is reported to be an inhibitor of amyloid beta protein (Aβ) fiber formation, whose presence is a hallmark of Alzheimers disease (AD). Bulbocapnine is thus a potential therapeutic under the amyloid hypothesis.[4] According to the Dorlands Medical Dictionary, it "inhibits the reflex and motor activities of striated muscle. It has been used in the treatment of muscular tremors and vestibular nystagmus".[5] A psychiatrist at Tulane University named Robert Heath carried out experiments on prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary using bulbocapnine to induce stupor.[6] This work at Tulane inspired, and was continued parallel to, experiments ...
