Are there innovations in the treatment of Parkinson's disease?

, : Are there innovations in the treatment of Parkinson's disease?. Praxis 93(45): 1865-1868

In the group of medication acting on the dopaminergic system the transdermal application of a dopamine agonist (Rotigotine) and a new MAO B inhibitor (Rasigiline) are receiving most attention. With some concern we had to learn that pergolide, a potent dopamine agonist, may be the cause of clinically relevant valvulopathies. Our possibilities to act on non-dopaminergic deficits is still very limited. The studies demonstrating a positive effect of cholinesterase inhibitors on cognitive decline are at least a positive signal.
