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.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.Dihydroxyphenylalanine: A beta-hydroxylated derivative of phenylalanine. The D-form of dihydroxyphenylalanine has less physiologic activity than the L-form and is commonly used experimentally to determine whether the pharmacological effects of LEVODOPA are stereospecific.Paraganglioma, Extra-Adrenal: A relatively rare, usually benign neoplasm originating in the chemoreceptor tissue of the CAROTID BODY; GLOMUS JUGULARE; GLOMUS TYMPANICUM; AORTIC BODIES; and the female genital tract.

(From Stedman, 27th ed)Dopa Decarboxylase: One of the AROMATIC-L-AMINO-ACID DECARBOXYLASES, this enzyme is responsible for the conversion of DOPA to DOPAMINE. It is of clinical importance in the treatment of Parkinson's disease.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.BenzophenonesDysautonomia, Familial: An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes.

In vivo effects of new inhibitors of catechol-O-methyl transferase. (1/147)

1. The effects of two new synthetic compounds showing in vitro catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) inhibitor properties were studied in vivo and compared with the effects of nitecapone and Ro-41-0960. 2. QO IA (3-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxy-5-nitrobenzylidene)-2,4-pentanedione), QO IIR ([2-(3,4-dihydroxy-2-nitrophenyl)vinyl]phenyl ketone), nitecapone and Ro-41-0960 (30 mg kg(-1), i.p.) were given to reserpinized rats 1 h before the administration of L-DOPA/carbidopa (LD/CD, 50:50 mg kg(-1), i.p.). Locomotor activity was assessed 1 h later. All the COMT inhibitors (COMTI), with the exception of QO IA, markedly potentiated LD/CD reversal of reserpine-induced akinesia. Similar results were obtained when the COMTI were coadministered with LD/CD. The effect of compound QO IIR was dose-dependent (7.5-30 mg kg(-1), i.p.). 3. The COMTI (30 mg kg(-1), i.p.) potentiated LD/CD reversal of both catalepsy and hypothermia of reserpinized mice. 4. QO IIR, nitecapone and Ro-41-0960 (30 mg kg(-1), i.p.) reduced striatal 3-methyl-DOPA (3-OMD) levels and increased dopamine (DA) and dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC) levels. Compound QO IA was devoid of any effect on striatal amine levels. In contrast to the other inhibitors, Ro-41-0961 reduced HVA levels as well. The effect of QO IIR on striatal amine levels was dose-dependent (7.5-60 mg kg(-1), i.p.) 5. These results suggest that the new compound QO IIR is an effective peripherally acting COMT inhibitor in vivo.  (+info)

COMT inhibition with tolcapone does not affect carbidopa pharmacokinetics in parkinsonian patients in levodopa/carbidopa (Sinemet). (2/147)

AIMS: Tolcapone is a novel catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor used as an adjunct to levodopa/carbidopa or levodopa/benserazide therapy to improve treatment of Parkinson's disease. The aim of the current study was to investigate the potential effect of tolcapone on the pharmacokinetics of carbidopa. METHODS: This was an open-label study in 12 parkinsonian patients receiving optimal levodopa/carbidopa therapy and tolcapone 200 mg three times daily for 6 weeks. Blood samples were taken at baseline (i.e. before the first tolcapone intake) and after 1-2 weeks and 6 weeks so that carbidopa pharmacokinetics before and during tolcapone treatment could be assessed. RESULTS: No changes in any pharmacokinetic parameters of carbidopa were observed. The mean AUC(0,tau) and Cmax values at baseline were 0.39 microg ml-1 h and 0. 14 microg ml-1, respectively. During tolcapone treatment these values were on average 0.35 microg ml-1 h (AUC(0,tau), week 1-2), 0. 34 microg ml-1 h (AUC(0,tau), week 6 and 0.13 microg ml-1 (Cmax, weeks 1-2 and 6). tmax remained unchanged (approx. 2 h). CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that tolcapone does not affect carbidopa elimination and that no interaction of any clinical relevance occurs between tolcapone and carbidopa.  (+info)

Feeding behavior in dopamine-deficient mice. (3/147)

Mice that cannot make dopamine (DA), a condition caused by the selective inactivation of tyrosine hydroxylase in dopaminergic neurons, are born normal but gradually become hypoactive and hypophagic, and die at 3 weeks of age. We characterized the feeding and locomotor responses of these DA-deficient (DA-/-) mice to 3, 4-dihyroxy-L-phenylalanine (L-DOPA) to investigate the relationship between brain DA levels and these complex behaviors. Daily administration of L-DOPA to DA-/- mice stimulated locomotor activity that lasted 6 to 9 hr; during that time the mice consumed most of their daily food and water. The minimal dose of L-DOPA that was sufficient to elicit normal feeding behavior in the DA-/- mice also restored their striatal DA to 9.1% of that in the wild-type (WT) mice at 3 hr; then DA content declined to <1% of WT levels by 24 hr. This dose of L-DOPA induced locomotor activity that exceeded that of treated WT mice by 5- to 7-fold, suggesting that DA-/- mice are supersensitive to DA. Unexpectedly, DA-/- mice manifested a second wave of activity 24 to 48 hr after L-DOPA treatment that was equivalent in magnitude to that of WT mice and independent of DA receptor activation. The DA-/- mice approached, sniffed, and chewed food during this second period of activity, but they ate <10% of that required for sustenance. Therefore, DA-/- mice can execute behaviors necessary to seek and ingest food, but they do not eat enough to survive.  (+info)

Population pharmacokinetics of tolcapone in parkinsonian patients in dose finding studies. (4/147)

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)

The catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor entacapone enhances the pharmacokinetic and clinical response to Sinemet CR in Parkinson's disease. (5/147)

OBJECTIVES: Entacapone is a specific, potent, peripherally acting catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor. It has been shown to improve the bioavailability of plasma levodopa and extend its clinical effect when used as an adjunct to standard levodopa preparations, but there is little experience of the effect of entacapone on controlled release levodopa preparations. METHODS: A double blind, placebo controlled, single dose, randomised, cross over trial was performed in 14 patients with Parkinson's disease with motor fluctuations to investigate the clinical effect of a single dose of entacapone (200 mg) when administered with either standard levodopa-carbidopa (Sinemet) or controlled release levodopa-carbidopa preparations (Sinemet CR). RESULTS: When entacapone was administered with standard Sinemet the duration of the clinical response to standard Sinemet was longer in comparison with the response after placebo (p=0.02). Moreover, in the same patients, entacapone significantly increased the duration of the clinical response to Sinemet CR (p=0.05) without prolonging the latency of response or enhancing dyskinesias. CONCLUSIONS: These data confirm the clinical efficacy of entacapone-standard Sinemet combination. They also indicate that adding entacapone to controlled release levodopa preparations might provide a useful treatment option in patients with Parkinson's disease with motor fluctuations. A double blind clinical trial with a chronically administered entacapone-Sinemet CR combination is, however, required to verify this viewpoint.  (+info)

Metoclopramide and pimozide in Parkinson's disease and levodopa-induced dyskinesias. (6/147)

Metoclopramide is an antiemetic drug which occasionally produced acute dystonic reactions. Although known to interfere with central dopamine mechanisms, it is frequently used in Parkinson's disease to prevent levodopa-induced nausea and vomiting. In this study metoclopramide did not increase Parkinsonism or reduce levodopa-induced involuntary movements in patients with Parkinson's disease. Pimozide, by contrast, increased Parkinsonism and reduced involuntary movements. The capacity of metoclopramide to produce acute dyskinesias while being apparently free of Parkinsonism effects is pharmacologically unique and differentiates this drug from the phenothiazines and butyrophenones.  (+info)

The aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase inhibitor carbidopa is selectively cytotoxic to human pulmonary carcinoid and small cell lung carcinoma cells. (7/147)

The carcinoid tumor is an uncommon neuroendocrine neoplasm the hallmark of which is excessive serotonin production. In studying kinetics of tryptophan hydroxylase and aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase (AAAD) in human carcinoid hepatic metastases and adjacent normal liver (J. A. Gilbert et al, Biochem. Pharmacol., 50: 845-850, 1995), we identified one significant difference: the Vmax of carcinoid AAAD was 50-fold higher than that in normal liver. Here, we report Western and Northern analyses detecting large quantities of AAAD polypeptide and mRNA in human carcinoid primary as well as metastatic tumors compared with normal surrounding tissues. To assess the feasibility of targeting these high AAAD levels for chemotherapy, AAAD inhibitors carbidopa (alpha-methyl-dopahydrazine), alpha-monofluoromethyldopa (MFMD), and 3-hydroxybenzylhydrazine (NSD-1015) were incubated (72 h) with NCI-H727 human lung carcinoid cells. Carbidopa and MFMD were lethal (IC50 = 29 +/- 2 microM and 56 +/- 6 microM, respectively); NSD-1015 had no effect on proliferation. On exposure to other human tumor lines, carbidopa was lethal only to NCI-H146 and NCI-H209 small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) lines (IC50 = 12 +/- 1 microM and 22 +/- 5 microM, respectively). Carbidopa (100 microM) decreased growth of (but did not kill) SK-N-SH neuroblastoma and A204 rhabdomyosarcoma cells and did not affect proliferation of DU 145 prostate, MCF7 breast, or NCI-H460 large cell lung carcinoma lines. The rank order of lines by AAAD activity was NCI-H146 > NCI-H209 > SK-N-SH > NCI-H727, whereas A204, DU 145, MCF7, and NCI-H460 had no measurable activity. For lung tumor lines (carcinoid, two SCLC, and one large cell lung carcinoma), AAAD activity was correlated with the potency of carbidopa-induced cytotoxicity. However, carcinoid cell death was not solely attributable to complete inhibition of either AAAD activity or the serotonin synthetic pathway. In further evaluating potential applications of these findings with carbidopa, we determined that sublethal doses of carbidopa produced additive cytotoxic effects in carcinoid cells in combination with etoposide and cytotoxic synergy in SCLC cells when coincubated with topotecan.  (+info)

Parkinsonian symptoms as an initial manifestation in a Japanese patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and Toxoplasma infection. (8/147)

We studied a Japanese patient who developed parkinsonian symptoms over 3 months before the diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Brain MRI showed multiple lesions with mass effect and ring enhancement in the basal ganglia and subcortical white matter suggesting Toxoplasma infection. Anti-Toxoplasma therapy and highly active antiretroviral therapy for 6 months allowed improvement of parkinsonism, brain MRI findings, and immune system.  (+info)

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 ...

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.

The patient should be informed that carbidopa and levodopa extended-release tablet is an extended-release formulation of carbidopa and levodopa which releases these ingredients over a 4- to 6-hour period. It is important that carbidopa and levodopa extended-release tablets be taken at regular intervals according to the schedule outlined by the physician. The patient should be cautioned not to change the prescribed dosage regimen and not to add any additional antiparkinson medications, including other carbidopa and levodopa preparations, without first consulting the physician.. If abnormal involuntary movements appear or get worse during treatment with carbidopa and levodopa extended-release tablets, the physician should be notified, as dosage adjustment may be necessary..

Although the effects of a chronic overdosage with levodopa are well known, few cases of acute intoxication have been described.1 2 A particular problem in establishing a diagnosis of levodopa overdosage is the relatively short half life in the circulation of levodopa.3 4 If there is a delay in bringing an acutely intoxicated patient to hospital, perhaps due to late discovery, the blood concentration of levodopa could already be normal (corresponding to the peak levodopa concentration in Parkinsons disease therapy) after 6-8 hours. Depending on the extent of the overdosage, the time could be even shorter. This report describes the clinical effects and the plasma concentrations of levodopa and specific metabolites over a period of 132.5 hours after ingestion of 30 tablets of carbidopa/levodopa (50 mg/200 mg tablets).. A 76 year old patient had a pre-existing mild akinetic rigid Parkinsons syndrome, which had been treated for the past 1.5 years with 3×1 tablets of carbidopa/levodopa (50 mg/200 ...
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 ...

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 ...

Background: Continuous infusion of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) can effectively manage motor and non-motor complications in advanced Parkinsons disease (PD). Healthcare costs, quality of life (QoL), effectiveness, and tolerability were assessed in routine care treatment with LCIG. Methods: The seventy-seven patients enrolled in this prospective, open-label, 3-year study in routine medical care were LCIG-naive (N = 37), or had previous LCIG treatment for amp;lt;2 (N = 22), or amp;gt;= 2 (N = 18) years. Healthcare costs were collected monthly. PD symptoms and QoL were assessed with the Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), 39-item Parkinsons Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39), and EuroQoL 5-Dimension Visual Analog Scale (EQ-5D VAS); LCIG dose, safety, and tolerability were monitored. Results: Mean monthly costs per patient ( 8226 5952) were similar across cohorts, remained steady during 3-year follow-up, and increased with PD severity and QoL impairment. In LCIG-naive patients, ...

Several new formulations and delivery methods for carbidopa-levodopa minimize off episodes.. Rytary combines immediate and extended release formulations of carbidopa/levodopa in a capsule to maintain plasma concentrations of the drug for a longer period. Concentrations peak after about 60 minutes, then stay fairly level for four to five hours before dropping.. The combination received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2015. Several clinical trial results showed more than an hour reduction in off time per day in patients taking Rytary compared to those taking immediate release carbidopa-levodopa or immediate release caridopa-levodopa plus entacapone (Stalevo). Entacapone is another drug that reduces the breakdown of levodopa, increasing and smoothing the levels of dopamine in the brain.. "Using extended release/regular release combination is a reasonable option for off episodes," Duda noted.. "We also use Inbrija, an orally inhaled levodopa formulation," he added. "It just ...

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 ...
Recently, a novel extended-release formulation of levodopa/carbidopa has been introduced in the US market with the name IPX066. This newly designed formulation features both the immediate and extended release properties of carbidopa/levodopa, thus it allows for both immediate and longer duration clinical benefits. IPX066 pills can be taken orally and are recommended for all PD patients.. In two clinical trials, the efficacy of IPX066 was tested in both early and advanced PD patients. In these patients, the administration of IPX066 significantly reduced the OFF-time and increased the ON-time without causing dyskinesia. No serious drug-related adverse effects were reported, although some patients experienced nausea, headache, dizziness, and insomnia.. Concurrently, another novel improved formulation of levodopa is XP21279. This drug is not available on the market as it is still in the earlier phases of clinical development. The XP21279 is a levodopa prodrug that is readily absorbed in the small ...

Urinary concentration of OLS was measured by a radioimmunoassay as described previously.22 Briefly, ouabain was conjugated to ovalbumin and keyhole limpet haemocyanin (KLH) and antisera to ouabain was raised in goats by injecting ouabain-ovalbumin and then boosting with ouabain-KLH conjugate. The antisera showed minimal cross-reactivity against ouabagenin (4%) and other related steroids. Tritiated ouabain ([21-22-3H]-ouabain, specific activity approximately 47 μCi/mmol), was diluted to 0.3 μCi/mL with assay buffer (phosphate-buffered saline, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.4, containing 0.1% bovine serum albumin). Aliquots of 100 μL each of tracer solution, antiserum (final dilution 1:90 000), and urine or standard ouabain were added to polystyrene tubes. After mixing, the reaction mixture was incubated for 1 hour at 37°C or overnight at 4°C. The bound and free ouabains were then separated by adding 250 μL of cold 2.5% dextran-coated charcoal. The samples were mixed, allowed to stand for 10 to 15 minutes ...

BACKGROUND: The levodopa/carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) therapy can improve the severe fluctuations associated with advanced Parkinsons disease (PD). Our aim was to assess the improvement in the health related quality of life of PD patients treated with LCIG at University of Pécs. METHODS: Eight PD patients were evaluated (age: 68.1 ± 4.4 years, disease duration: 14.5 ± 6.2 years, duration of fluctuations: 8.9 ± 3.1 years). Before the initiation of LCIG treatment and 6 and 12 months later, the health-relat- ed quality of life (PDQ-39 and EQ-5D-5L), severity of PD- related symptoms (MDS-UPDRS, Hoehn-Yahr Scale, Clinical Global Improvement--Severity) and major non-motor symptoms (PD Sleep Scale 2nd version: PDSS-2, Epworth Scale and Beck Depression Inventory: BDI) were assessed ...

Medications for Parkinsons disease. A number of medications are available for treating the motor symptoms of Parkinsons disease. Because individuals with Parkinsons disease experience various motor symptoms of differing severity, the optimal medication (and whether to treat with medication) varies between individuals. With time and progression of disease, the dose of medication(s) may need to be increased or new medications added. No drug has been shown with confidence to slow the progression of Parkinsons disease (i.e., exert a protective effect). In some cases a protective effect has been suggested but the evidence for benefit is incomplete and debatable. Early symptomatic treatment has been advocated by some in the belief that it may support basal ganglia compensatory mechanisms and restore normal dopaminergic transmission (Schapira, 2009).. Levodopa (carbidopa/levodopa; Sinemet®, Atamet®, and Parcopa®). The introduction of levodopa (L-dopa) more than 40 years ago revolutionized the ...
It is known that even if the micronization or the grinding of a substance in the presence of a surfactant or of a sugar can increase its solubility, these parameters are not always adequate. For example, the bioavailability of micronized progesterone is not adequate and should be improved, for example by dispersion in camauba wax. Such a technique is described in application WO-89,02742. Thus, it appears that the properties of a substance treated by micronization or grinding, in particular its solubility and its bioavailability, are not predictable, it being possible to obtain contradictory results ...

Methods: Thin (;0.07 cm), large-dimensioned (5 × 2.1 cm), multilayer dosage forms (DFs) with different rigid polymeric matrices and mechanical properties were folded into gelatin capsules and were administered to healthy volunteers with a light breakfast. GRDF unfolding and physical integrity were evaluated in vitro and in vivo (by gastroscopy and radiology). The pharmacokinetics of levodopa GRDF were compared to Sinemet CR® in a crossover design.. Results: The combination of rigidity and large dimension of the GRDFs was a decisive parameter to ensure prolonged gastroretentivity ( 5 h). Large-dimension DFs lacking rigidity had similar gastroretentivity as a nondisintegrating tablet (10 mm). The GRDFs rapidly unfolded and maintained their mechanical integrity. The absorption phase of levodopa was significantly prolonged following GRDF administration in comparison to Sinemet CR®.. Conclusions: The combination of size and rigidity of the novel GRDF enables a significant extension of the ...
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..

The aim of this study was to investigate if a telemetry test battery can be used to measure effects of Parkinsons disease (PD) treatment intervention and disease progression in patients with fluctuations. Sixty-five patients diagnosed with advanced PD were recruited in an open longitudinal 36-month study; 35 treated with levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) and 30 were candidates for switching from oral PD treatment to LCIG. They utilized a test battery, consisting of self-assessments of symptoms and fine motor tests (tapping and spiral drawings), four times per day in their homes during week-long test periods. The repeated measurements were summarized into an overall test score (OTS) to represent the global condition of the patient during a test period. Clinical assessments included ratings on Unified PD Rating Scale (UPDRS) and 39-item PD Questionnaire (PDQ-39) scales. In LCIG-naïve patients, mean OTS compared to baseline was significantly improved from the first test period on LCIG ...

For example, compounds that ...
Management of PD is generally done through medications. Levodopa, a synthetic dopamine, is an amino acid that converts to dopamine when it crosses the blood-brain barrier. Levodopa helps lessen most of the serious signs and symptoms of PD. The drug helps at least 75% of persons with PD, mainly with the symptoms of bradykinesia and rigidity (NINDS, 2008). One important side effect to note is hallucinations. A more common treatment, and generally the drug of choice, involves a medication that combines levodopa and carbidopa (Sinemet), resulting in a decrease in the side effect of nausea seen with levodopa therapy alone, but with the same positive control of symptoms, particularly with relation to movement. Patients should not be taken off of Sinemet precipitously, so it is important to report all of a patients medications if they are admitted to either acute or long-term care. Dopamine agnoists trick the brain into thinking it is getting dopamine. This class of medications is less effective than ...

Hi, I just registered. This is all rather new to me. I was diagnosed with PD last September. So far Im doing pretty good. The medicine (Sinemet) seems to be controlling the bulk of the symptoms I have. However, the worst problem is the anxiety feelin (pain in chest area). It happens mostly at work but on rare occasions at home. Im 55 now. Is this a problem for anyone else and if so, what do you do about it? My doctor prescribed Lexapro but my wife and I determined it was making the

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
CVT-301 is a dry powder, aerosol formulation of levodopa being developed for the treatment of OFF episodes in PD patients already taking a standard oral regimen of levodopa/carbidopa. A Phase IIB study of CVT-301 adjunct to a scheduled daily regimen was designed to investigate the safety and efficacy of CVT-301 when self-administered as needed by patients for the treatment of OFF episodes. Patients were permitted to use CVT-301 up to three times a day to treat their emerging OFF episodes over a one-month period of observation. Two doses of CVT-301 were studied; these doses delivered approximately 35mg and 50mg levodopa to the lung, respectively.. 86 PD patients who experienced frequent OFF periods were administered CVT-301 or placebo. Clinically significant and statistically significant improvements in motor response, as measured by the Unified Parkinson s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part 3 motor score, were observed with onset of benefit apparent at about 10 minutes post-dose. In addition, use ...
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 ...
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
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of l-dihydroxyphenylalanine (l-Dopa) and d,l,5-hydroxytryptophan (d,l,5-HTP) on reserpine-induced amnesia. AU - Palfai, Tibor. AU - Walsh, Thomas J.. AU - Albala, Bruce J.. AU - Brown, Oliver M.. PY - 1977/1. Y1 - 1977/1. N2 - In a series of experiments the effects of reserpine, l-Dopa, and d,l,5-hydroxytryptophan (d,l,5-HTP) on retention of a passive avoidance training in mice were investigated. Reserpine (2.5 mg/kg) produced amnesia when given at 120 min before but not at 30 min before or at 0, 10, 30, or 90 min following training. This time-dependent reserpine effect did not appear to be due to either an alteration in footshock sensitivity during training or to the drug producing state-dependent learning. The amnesic effect of reserpine could be blocked when both l-Dopa and d,l,5-HTP were also administered up to 10 min but not at 30 or 90 min following training. The drugs, l-Dopa or d,l,5-HTP, given alone or in higher doses, could not at any time counteract the ...
Parkinsons disease has been traditionally thought of as a dopaminergic disease in which cells of the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) die. However, accumulating evidence implies an important role for the serotonergic system in Parkinsons disease in general and in physiological responses to levodopa therapy, the first line of treatment. We use a mathematical model to investigate the consequences of levodopa therapy on the serotonergic system and on the pulsatile release of dopamine (DA) from dopaminergic and serotonergic terminals in the striatum. Levodopa competes with tyrosine and tryptophan at the blood-brain barrier and is taken up by serotonin neurons in which it competes for aromatic amino acid decarboxylase. The DA produced competes with serotonin (5HT) for packaging into vesicles. We predict the time courses of LD, cytosolic DA, and vesicular DA in 5HT neurons during an LD dose. We predict the time courses of DA and 5HT release from 5HT cell bodies and 5HT terminals as well as the ...

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 ...

In this study, we characterize gut-associated bacteria in their ability to decarboxylate levodopa to dopamine via tyrosine decarboxylases. Bacterial tyrosine decarboxylases efficiently convert levodopa to dopamine, even in the presence of tyrosine, a competitive substrate, or inhibitors of human decarboxylase. In situ levels of levodopa are compromised by high abundance of gut bacterial tyrosine decarboxylase in patients with Parkinsons disease. Finally, the higher relative abundance of bacterial tyrosine decarboxylases at the ...
