Tolcapone was well tolerated and substantially increased on time and reduced off time in patients with fluctuating Parkinson disease. Additionally, levodopa requirements were significantly decreased.

sinemet reviews

There was no significant difference in motor, mood and quality-of-life scores in patients consuming below and above the 800 mg carbidopa/levodopa threshold, though a mild worsening in dyskinesia duration was noted without worsening in dyskinesia pain and disability. In PD patients who crossed the 800 mg threshold between two consecutive clinic visits, a significant improvement in depressive symptoms and quality-of-life measures was demonstrated, and in these patients there was no worsening of motor fluctuations or dyskinesia.

The effect of a 2.5-fold increase in daily carbidopa intake on the bioavailability of levodopa was studied in six patients with Parkinson's disease on a low chronic regimen of carbidopa-levodopa (Sinemet) at the fixed ratio of 1:10. The extent of levodopa absorption, expressed as the area under the 11-h plasma levodopa concentration-time curve (AUC0-11 h), was not enhanced by the higher carbidopa dose. A significant increase in the AUC was found for the levodopa metabolite 3-O-methyldopa at the higher carbidopa intake. Clinical performances of individual patients were identical with both carbidopa-levodopa ratios. From these data, an adequate inhibition of peripheral decarboxylation and hence a good bioavailability of levodopa may be expected in patients taking low doses of carbidopa-levodopa, using currently available commercial preparations.

Physicians modify drug schedules in response to their patients' clinical responses. Failure to relieve patients' symptoms or the emergence of drug-related side effects may reflect nonadherence to a prescribed drug schedule rather than incorrect therapeutic physician decisions. Using a medication questionnaire and a computerized medication event monitoring system (MEMS) to monitor medication use, nonadherence of drug use was examined in subjects with Parkinson's disease (PD). We report that prescription nonadherence in PD subjects was common and approximated that reported in other chronic diseases. During a 28-day observation period, only 4 of 39 subjects had complete schedule adherence, i.e., no missed, extra, or mistimed doses. Using a questionnaire, 24.3% of subjects acknowledged missing any doses but the computerized MEMS recorded that 51.3% of subjects missed at least one dose per week and 20.5% of subjects missed three or more doses per week. Mistiming of doses was admitted by 73% of subjects but 82.1% had recorded mistimed doses. Of multiple sociodemographic and disease-related items examined, only gender and level of education were statistically related to nonadherence.

LCN PR tablets prolonged the in-vitro release of levodopa in HCl 0.1 m for more than 3 h. In-vivo plasma levodopa levels peaked at a later time point with LCN PR tablets as compared with that obtained with Sinemet 100/25 (2.7 vs 0.5 h). Nebicapone increased the maximum plasma concentration and area under the plasma concentration-time curve values for levodopa.

The broad results of the treatment of patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease who have received levodopa or its variants are reported. 50 patients, 24 males and 26 females, with a mean age of 66.5 years were treated with levodopa, in daily doses ranging from 0.25g to 6.0g or 'Sinemet' in daily doses of 300mg to 750mg. Periods of treatment ranged from 4 months to 8 years, with a mean of 4.02 years. The relationships of patients' age, onset of Parkinsonian symptoms and interval between initial treatment with levodopa and the current clinical state were studied. Patients were classified according to their clnical response into 3 categories: satisfactory response, progressive deterioration or intolerance of levodopa. The proportion of patients in each category was 66%, 22% and 12% respectively. The clinical results of treatment correlated with those of Webster Disability Testing Scale. Analysis showed that the majority of patients tolerated levodopa and showed an initially satisfactory response. Patients who responded well were considerably younger than those who failed to respond. Patients receiving the drug for a shorter period (less than 3 years) showed a better response. After 3 years' treatment, the response declined. Patients who had had Parkinson's disease for more than 4 years appeared to do less well than those with recently diagnosed disease, but many patients responded well even when treatment was initiated 10 years after the onset of symptoms. Patients discontinued levodopa treatment because of psychoses, nausea, dyskinesia or exacerbation of urinary incontinence. The commonest side effects were nausea (34%), postural hypotension (22%), psychoses (10%) and 'on-off' phenomena in 12% of patients.

L-DOPA administration to 21--25-day-old rats with inherited stress-induced arterial hypertension (ISIAH rats)lowered arterial pressure both at rest and in emotional stress in adult rats. The effect seems to be due to enhancement of the brain catecholamine synthesis rather than the peripheral one in early ontogenesis. The long-term hypotensive effect of the L-DOPA was supposed to be caused in part by changes revealed in the brain catecholaminergic system.

Entacapone increased the duration of action of carbidopa-levodopa and resulted in longer periods of symptomatic relief in a patient with restless legs syndrome. The only side effect was nausea.

Long-term follow-up of eight patients who underwent stereotactic grafting of adrenal medullary tissue into unilateral or bilateral caudate nuclei is presented. We demonstrate that this procedure can be performed with minimal risk. Our results show little benefit when the group as a whole is analyzed. A subgroup of four patients was identified who responded to the procedure, as evidenced by a reduction in motor scores, reduction in medication requirements, and greater "on" time. Three of these patients continue to accrue benefit after 2 years. No characterization of a responder profile was evident. We conclude that a modest benefit is derived from this procedure that may persist for as long as 2 years. Future clinical studies to evaluate grafting procedures are encouraged.

The animal model of Parkinson's disease was successfully established in all 4 monkeys, showing typical parkinsonian syndromes of bradykinesia, rigidity and hypokinesia. Changes in high nervous activities such as apathetic and less aggressive behaviors were also observed. Their scores of Parkinson disease scale exceeded 20. The parkinsonian syndromes were relieved after the administration of sinemet. The 18FDG-PET-CT scans showed significant glucose reduction after the MPTP injection within and outside of the basal ganglion area.

Mood swings accompanying the motor fluctuations of patients with Parkinson's disease on chronic levodopa treatment frequently occur, but are poorly recognized. Occasionally, their functional impact may be greater than that caused by the motor disability itself. In this study we have assessed the nature of, and relationship between, mood and motor fluctuations in nine Parkinsonian patients with 'on-off' motor swings. The results of an additional questionnaire survey confirm that 'on-off' mood swings occur in approximately two thirds of patients with Parkinson's disease experiencing motor fluctuations on dopaminergic treatment. Aetiological and therapeutic implications are discussed.

The COMT 158val allele was associated with an increased startle potentiation by unpleasant stimuli as compared with neutral stimuli irrespective of L-dopa or placebo intervention. COMT 158met/met genotype carriers, while displaying no difference in startle magnitude in response to unpleasant or neutral pictures in the placebo condition, showed startle potentiation by unpleasant pictures under L-dopa administration only.

Several large, open-label studies have presented data that are in line with the randomized controlled trial on L-dopa-carbidopa intestinal gel infusion, which shows that a continuous drug delivery can improve motor fluctuations and dyskinesia in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease. Furthermore, new extended-release formulations of L-dopa aim to stabilize plasma concentrations and thus reduce the degree of motor complications - despite a reduced number of daily doses. Transdermal rotigotine has been shown to be effective for specific subgroups of patients, although the general effect on nonmotor symptoms is still unclear. New products for L-dopa infusion are also at different stages of development, but the routes of administration are widely different: intrajejunal, subcutaneous, and oral.

Carbidopa/levodopa enteral suspension (CLES; Duopa) is a suspension or gel formulation of carbidopa/levodopa that is approved by the USA Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of advanced Parkinson's disease patients with motor fluctuations. CLES is delivered at a constant rate continuously throughout the day into the jejunum through an infusion pump via a PEG-J tube implanted surgically. The efficacy of CLES was established in the USA based on a randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, active controlled, parallel group and 12-week study, in which mean daily OFF time was reduced by 4.0 h, compared to 1.9 h with oral immediate release carbidopa/levodopa. The CLES hardware consists of a cassette containing the drug, a pump to deliver the drug and tubing to connect the PEG-J to the pump. It is critical to understand the appropriate conversion of the carbidopa/levodopa daily dosages to the CLES dosage and how to program the pump and titrate CLES to achieve the most effective dose. We describe one methodology for patient selection, outpatient titration and pump programming.

Nineteen patients with Itsenko-Cushing's disease aged 13 to 18 were examined during an active stage of the disease and during a remission after proton exposure of the hypophysis. Nine normal subjects were controls. Adenohypophyseal tropic hormones and hydrocortisone were radioimmunoassayed before and after administration of nakom, a dopaminergic agent. ACTH, hydrocortisone, TTH, parlodel secretion were found decreased and LH increased in patients with Itsenko-Cushing's disease, and no STH increase characteristic of normal subjects was observed. During remission after proton therapy adenohypophyseal tropic hormones and hydrocortisone secretion normalized in response to nakom. Recovery of STH secretion was observed, but not in all patients, this being confirmed by the absence of a normal somatotropin response in nakom test in 26.32% of patients.

Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter in the regulation of the sleep-wake cycle, and parkinsonian patients suffer from prominent sleep abnormalities. Hence, the question arises whether the disrupted sleep pattern in Parkinson's disease (PD) is responsive to dopaminergic treatment.

sinemet drug information

All PD patients treated with LCIG at our centre over a 7-year period were analysed to determine the duration of treatment, retention rate, reasons for discontinuation, LCIG efficacy in motor complications, modifications of concomitant therapy and adverse events.

sinemet user reviews

LCIG has demonstrated efficacy in reducing levodopa-associated motor complications in patients with advanced PD, and improving UPDRS and HRQOL scores. Because it involves PEG and its associated risks, LCIG is recommended for patients in whom motor fluctuations and dyskinesias are inadequately treated with traditional peroral medication. For these patients, LCIG can be a valuable alternative to deep brain stimulation (DBS), especially when DBS is contraindicated. These conclusions are limited by the modest number and size of completed randomized, controlled trials of LCIG.

Guidelines for clinical transplantation studies for Parkinson's disease emphasize that transplants should be considered as an adjunct to systemic L-DOPA, yet few preclinical studies have specifically assessed the potential of transplants as an adjunct to the clinical gold standard treatment. The objectives of the present study were to determine if encapsulated PC12 cells implanted in rats with severe unilateral dopamine depletions: (i) have a direct therapeutic effect on measures of parkinsonian symptoms; and/or (ii) increase the therapeutic window of oral sinemet in this model. Rats with severe unilateral dopamine depletions received striatal implants of encapsulated PC12 cells producing dopamine and L-DOPA. These rats were tested on a battery of behavioral measures of parkinsonian symptoms, at a range of doses of oral sinemet (0, 12, 24, and 36 mg/kg). Stereotypies/dyskinesias were also quantified after high doses of oral sinemet (36 and 50 mg/kg). The results confirm that parkinsonian symptoms can be quantified in rats with severe dopamine depletions, and the validity and clinical relevance of these measures are supported by the fact that the clinical gold standard treatment, oral sinemet, attenuates these parkinsonian symptoms. Somatic delivery of dopamine and L-DOPA, directly to the dopamine-depleted striatum, also attenuates parkinsonian symptoms. In fact, the magnitude of the therapeutic effect produced by continuous, site-specific, somatic delivery of dopamine and L-DOPA was larger than the effect produced by acute, systemic, oral sinemet. The beneficial effects of oral sinemet and striatal implants of catecholamine-producing devices were additive, but there were no adverse effects related to striatal catecholamine-producing devices, and these devices did not increase the adverse effects related to oral sinemet. Therefore, striatal implants of catecholamine-producing devices have direct therapeutic effects which are fairly robust, and they widen the therapeutic window of oral sinemet.

The paper reports plasma levels of levodopa (LD), its main metabolites [dopamine, dihydroxyphenylacetic acid, homovanillic acid, 3-O-methyldopa (3-O-MD)] and carbidopa in 14 parkinsonian patients first treated with Sinemet and thereafter with Sinemet-CR4. A good relationship was observed between LD plasma levels and pharmacological effects. While the LD area under the curve increased after Sinemet-CR4, the same was not observed with metabolites, except with 3-O-MD. The experiments in volunteer subjects confirmed the increase in 3-O-MD in plasma after Sinemet-CR4. Higher levels were observed also in the CSF with a reduction of LD concentrations. This seems to corroborate the hypothesis of an interference with LD passage through the blood-brain barrier in humans.

sinemet starting dosage

A major problem in the long-term treatment of Parkinson's disease with chronic, intermittent levodopa therapy is fluctuations in motor response. Both peripheral and central pharmacokinetic properties of levodopa are important in determining the duration of response. The "wearing-off" phenomenon or "end-of-dose" deterioration is related directly to the level of plasma levodopa. Therefore, a principal strategy for the treatment of motor fluctuations has been the attempt to prolong levodopa plasma levels with the use of long-acting, controlled-release levodopa preparations. This paper reviews the available data on the two compounds that are commercially available: benserazide-levodopa hydrodynamically balanced system (Madopar HBS) and controlled-release carbidopa-levodopa (Sinemet CR).

These two studies demonstrate the safety and tolerability of L-dopa pharmacotherapy in cocaine-dependent patients. No evidence for greater efficacy of L-dopa compared to placebo was observed. The possibility of enhancing treatment effects by combining L-dopa with other behavioral or pharmacological interventions is discussed.

Parkinson's disease affects thousands of Americans, men and women equally and apparently with little regard to race. Its diagnosis depends largely on repeated clinical observations of representative signs, such as resting tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and gait disturbances. Patients progress through stages: Early disease involves only one limb or side and confers minimal disability, but advanced disease restricts patients to full care. Treatment is chosen on the basis of disease stage and patient response. Combination carbidopa-levodopa (Sinemet) is appropriate for any significant degree of disability, and other antiparkinsonian drugs and anticholinergic agents may be used as adjuncts. Electroconvulsive therapy, use of selegiline hydrochloride (Eldepryl), and surgery are still undergoing investigation but may hold promise.

Methemoglobin formation was examined in erytrocytes of 16 patients with Parkinson`s disease (PD) (stage 3-4 by the Hoehn and Yahr scale). The patients receiving levodopa-containing drugs (madopar, nakom) were also treated with intramuscular injections of mexidol (daily dose 100 mg/day) for 14 days. Control buy sinemet group included 12 clinically healthy persons. The erythrocyte methemoglobin content was determined by electronic paramagnetic resonance (EPR) using the EPR signal intensity with g-factor 6.0. The methemoglobin content was significantly higher in erythrocytes of PD patients than in healthy donors. The complex therapy with mexidol normalized the methemoglobin content in erythrocytes of PD patients. Incubation in vitro of erythrocytes of donors and PD patients with acrolein increased the methemoglobin content, while incubation with carnosine normalized the methemoglobin content in erythrocytes of PD patients. Prophylactic (i.e. before acrolein addition) and therapeutic administration of carnosine to the incubation system with acrolein decreased the methemoglobin content to its initial level. Results of this study suggest that inclusion of the antioxidants mexidol and carnosine in the scheme of basic therapy of PD may reduce side effects associated with methemoglobinemia.

A 45-year-old woman with a history of probable perinatal craniocerebral trauma resulting in mild asymptomatic right hemiatrophy developed right leg weakness and hypotonia buy sinemet alternating with dystonia only after prolonged exertion at age 12. At age 27, she developed right-sided parkinsonism. Exertional paresis and dystonia and parkinsonism responded completely to levodopa; however, she developed a progressive reduction in the duration of action of levodopa over the first 4 years of treatment. Investigations including computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, [18F]fluorodopa, and [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography scans suggested a static lesion involving the left substantia nigra. This unusual exertion-induced weakness and hypotonia alternating with hypertonia and dystonia has not been reported previously. The role of dopamine deficiency in dystonia and the role of levodopa in the development of fluctuations in Parkinson's disease are discussed. Review of the literature, including this patient, emphasizes the heterogeneity of the syndrome of hemiparkinsonism-hemiatrophy.

Homovanillic acid (HVA) and adenosine-3',5'-monophosphate (c-AMP) were estimated in the morning urine of 33 drug-free Parkinson patients and 25 hospitalized controls. 21 of the patients had never been treated; the mean duration of the illness was 2.6 years. Parkinson patients excreted more HVA and less c-AMP compared to the controls; it was the subgroup with tremor as the main symptom that caused this difference, while the subgroups with akinesia or rigidity as the main symptom has values not significantly different from those of the control group. 22 of the patients were studied again after 2 weeks of treatment with L-dopa + decarboxylase inhibitor. HVA excretion increased 20-fold while c-AMP excretion decreased 9% (p less 0.05). The reduction in the c-AMP excretion was observed only in the subgroups with akinesia or rigidity as the main symptom (p less 0.025), while there was buy sinemet no change in the tremor group where the pretreatment c-AMP was low. The results indicate a difference in the dopamine receptor sensitivities in the subgroups of the patients.

Patients were allowed to take rescue CD/L-dopa as needed. Using home diaries, patients recorded OFF time and ON time with or without troublesome dyskinesia during baseline and treatment days 7 through 9. During 12-h clinic visits on day 10, plasma samples were collected for pharmacokinetics, and motor performance was assessed hourly.

Dopamine neurotransmission influences approach toward rewards and reward-related cues. The best cited interpretation of this effect proposes that dopamine mediates the pleasure that commonly accompanies reward. This hypothesis has received support in some animal models and a few studies in humans. However, direct assessments of the effect of transiently increasing dopamine neurotransmission have been largely limited to the use of psychostimulant drugs, which elevate brain levels of buy sinemet multiple neurotransmitters in addition to dopamine. In the present study we tested the effect of more selectively elevating dopamine neurotransmission, as produced by administration of the immediate dopamine precursor, L-DOPA (0, 100/25, 200/50 mg, Sinemet), in healthy human volunteers. Neither dose altered positive mood. The results suggest that dopamine neurotransmission does not directly influence positive mood in humans.

Two pairs of siblings with severe dystonia with marked diurnal fluctuation had both reduced CSF concentration of biopterin and marked symptomatic improvement of the dystonia in response to levodopa. Whether the reduced concentration of biopterin reflects focal abiotrophy of biopterin-containing neurons or deficiency of biopterin synthesis is uncertain. A fifth individual, who had a systemic deficiency of biopterin synthesis, shared the features of reduced biopterin in CSF, marked diurnal variation in the degree of dystonia, and clinical improvement in response to levodopa. Generalized dystonia buy sinemet with marked diurnal fluctuation was therefore shared by the four patients in whom biopterin deficiency was limited to the CNS and the patient with systemic deficiency of biopterin.

Dyskinesia is a buy sinemet common adverse effect complicating chronic dopaminergic therapy for Parkinson's disease. Movements are frequently choreic in nature and have been ascribed to overstimulation of "supersensitive" striatal postsynaptic dopamine receptors. Anticholinergic medications, despite some clinical efficacy in Parkinson's disease, have rarely been reported to cause dyskinesia. We report a patient with Parkinson's disease who developed orobuccal dyskinesia while being treated with trihexyphenidyl (Artane). Dyskinesia was observed following the introduction of trihexyphenidyl, resolved with its discontinuation, and reappeared with its reinstitution. Carbidopa-levodopa (Sinemet) alone did not cause dyskinesia but augmented dyskinesia associated with trihexyphenidyl.

There are many medications presently available for management of Parkinson's disease. Levodopa is the most effective one. Pharmacotherapeutic efficacy of some forms of drug is not similar due to differences in composition (inactive ingredients, excipients, preservatives, colorants). Authors carried out an open labeled comparative study of pharmacotherapeutic efficacy of the original drug -- nakom and the generic one -- tidomed (both buy sinemet drugs include levodopa and carbidopa). The improvement as assessed by the UPDRS-3 was seen in patients receiving nakom de novo. The significant reduction of motor deficit and increase of daily activity and duration of action of a single dose were noted in patients with motor fluctuations treated with nakom.

The thyrotrophin (TSH) and prolactin (Prl)-releasing effects of TSH-releasing hormone (TRH) were investigated in 20 subjects with Parkinson's disease (PD), unmedicated, on chronic treatment with a combination levodopa-benserazide (Madopar) or levodopa-carbidopa (Sinemet) or withdrawn from therapy. Administration of TRH (200 micrograms iv) induced in unmedicated patients TSH and Prl responses significantly lower than those of sex-and age-matched controls. In patients on Madopar therapy the TSH and Prl responses to TRH were greater than in unmedicated patients and comparable to those of controls, while in patients on Sinemet therapy the pituitary responses were undistinguishable from those of unmedicated subjects. Withdrawal of Madopar therapy resulted in a marked diminution of the TSH response but did not affect the Prl response to TRH. Withdrawal of Sinemet therapy did not alter the TSH and Prl responses to TRH. Concomitant evaluation of growth hormone (GH) levels, in none of the subjects evidenced non-specific changes in plasma GH following TRH. Since TSH and Prl responses to TRH Deltasone Tablets are inhibited by an enhancement of the dopaminergic tone, it would appear that the latter is preserved in the tuberoinfundibular system of unmedicated subjects and subjects on chronic Sinemet therapy, but is defective in subjects on chronic Madopar therapy.

We conducted a prospective study of thyroid function in 46 patients with Parkinson disease and 46 age- and sex-matched controls with other neurologic disease. There was no statistical difference in serum thyroxine (T4) and T3 resin uptake (T3U) between the two groups. Neither the duration nor the quantity of L-dopa or carbidopa/L-dopa (Sinemet) therapy influenced these assessments of thyroid function. However, 3 of 46 Parkinson patients were hypothyroid, whereas none of 46 controls was hypothyroid. There was one hyperthyroid individual in each group. Early evaluation of thyroid function in all patients with Parkinson disease is recommended Coumadin Pill Colors because of the unexpected frequency of hypothyroidism and because hypothyroid symptoms may be masked.

A 17-year-old male developed acute parkinsonism after obstruction of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt with subsequent hydrocephalus. Following a previous shunt replacement, he developed florid parkinsonism which was associated with Parinaud syndrome. The initial single-photon emission computed tomography of the brain using 99mTc-hexamethylpropylenamine oxime demonstrated decreased cerebral blood flow in the regions of the left caudate and putamen. The patient underwent shunt revision with minimal improvement and therefore levodopa/carbidopa (Sinemet 100/25) was administered. Subsequently, he experienced almost complete recovery which may have been correlated with probable improvement Cefixime Drug of the basal ganglia regional cerebral blood flow. Parkinsonism associated with ventriculoperitoneal shunt obstruction is a rare but reversible disorder that is responsive to shunt replacement and antiparkinsonian drug administration. Cerebral perfusion studies may prove to be of value in delineating the pathophysiology of this complication.

Twenty patients were recruited over a period of 6 years. Disease duration prior to LCIG infusion ranged from 5 to 18 years (mean 11.4 ± 4.2). The mean follow-up time on LCIG therapy was 48.5 ± 23.2 months (range 11-83 months). Mean 'off' time, UPDRS III, NMSS, and PDQ-8 improvement were statistically significant. Two patients dropped out and 66.7% of patients required tube replacement.

Levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LID) are one of the main issues in the management of Parkinson's disease (PD); once these dyskinesias are established treatment becomes difficult, so preventive strategies should be first evaluated. Although levodopa (LD) treatment has recently been related as risk factor for LID, the main strategy to delay LID is to start PD treatment with dopamine agonists, adding LD at low doses. After LID onset, approaches include reducing single LD doses, reducing or discontinuing monoamine oxidase type B/catechol O-methyltransferase (MAO-B/COMT) inhibitors and extended-release (ER) LD. Amantadine represents the best antidyskinetic tool, and ER amantadine is the most promising upcoming antidyskinetic drug. New LD formulations such as IPX-066 (able to provide continuous dopaminergic stimulation) also represent promising new approaches. The involvement of a nondopaminergic system in the pathogenesis of LID suggests that the modulation of glutamate, serotonin and adenosine could have potential as new upcoming drug targets, but the role of such drugs will still need to be confirmed in randomized controlled trials.

L-deprenyl (Eldepryl) added to Sinemet CR in the treatment regimens of seven patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and therapeutic response fluctuations (RF) allowed a statistically significant reduction in total daily levodopa intake and an increase in the mean interdose interval. Trends were noted towards a reduction in the number of daily "off" periods and an increase in the portion of the waking day spent "on." Three patients suffered an increase in the intensity of their dyskinesias, and discontinued taking deprenyl. Four patients, all of whom reported improved functioning during "off" periods, have continued taking the combination. Sinemet CR and deprenyl can safely be used together in patients with advanced PD, and the combination may result in improved control of motor fluctuations in selected patients.

The structure of sleep and number of body movements (BMS) and periodic leg movements during sleep (PMS), were studied in three unrelated girls suffering from L-DOPA responsive hereditary dystonia with marked diurnal fluctuation and in their 11 healthy, close relatives. All three girls had an increased number of BMS during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Five of the six parents and three siblings had abnormal PMS. One pair of parents had BMS similar to those of their affected daughter. The occurrence of BMS and PMS in the families studied may indicate a common mechanism for both. Because familial PMS is quite rare in its pure form, and this type of dystonia is also rarely encountered, the occurrence of BMS and PMS in members of these families may imply a causative relation between these two sleep-related motor phenomena.

The present study addressed the question of whether the emergence and severity of levodopa-induced dyskinesia was related to the therapeutic benefits derived from levodopa. Eight PD patients with clinically observed levodopa-induced dyskinesia were studied prior to and for two hours following a single dose of Sinemet (carbidopa/levodopa). Quantitative instrumental procedures were used to assess upper extremity dyskinesia, rigidity and bradykinesia. Results indicated that all patients exhibited significant reduction in their parkinsonism within 45 minutes following treatment. Reduction in bradykinesia, but not rigidity appeared to coincide with the emergence of dyskinesia. There was a significant relationship between severity of dyskinesia and the degree of improvement in movement velocity but not rigidity. Further analyses revealed that this relationship depended largely on the age of the patient. These findings are discussed as they pertain to a unified model of basal ganglia movement disorders which places dyskinesia and bradykinesia at opposite extremes along a continuum.
