Details

Despite enormous advances in our current understanding of PD since James Parkinson described the “shaking palsy” 200 years ago, L-dopa, in clinical use since the 1960s, remains the gold standard of treatment. Virtually every patient with PD requires varying doses of L-dopa to manage motor and some nonmotor symptoms and retain an acceptable quality of life. However, after a period of treatment with L-dopa, a number of problems emerge; the key ones are motor and nonmotor fluctuations, a range of dyskinesias, and a combination of both. This module will take approximately 1 hour to complete.

Faculty- Dr. David Brooks, Dr. K. Ray Chaudhuri, and Dr. Werner Poewe
