Somnolence and "sleep attacks" have been reported as an adverse effect of several antiparkinsonian drugs. The authors document, in a placebo-controlled, randomized, double-blind, crossover study performed in 20 healthy volunteers, using the Multiple System Latency Test (MSLT) as primary outcome, that ropinirole reduces time to sleep onset in humans. Ropinirole therapy was not associated with daytime episodes of rapid eyes movement (REM) sleep.

The aims of this study were to assess the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of sumanirole, a highly selective D(2) dopamine receptor agonist, versus placebo in subjects with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD), and to demonstrate noninferiority of sumanirole to ropinirole. In this flexible-dose, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, parallel-group study, 948 subjects were treated with sumanirole 1 to 48 mg/day, ropinirole 0.75 to 24 mg/day, or placebo. Treatment consisted of 13 weeks of dose escalation, 26 weeks of maintenance, and 1 week of tapering. Approximately 70% of subjects treated with either sumanirole or ropinirole completed the study. Statistical significance (P < 0.0001) was achieved when both sumanirole and ropinirole groups were compared with placebo, with mean differences of -7.7 and -8.8 on combined sum of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) part II (average on and off) and part III total scores at the end of maintenance. Noninferiority of sumanirole to ropinirole was also demonstrated, with a sumanirole minus ropinirole difference of 1.17 (90% CI: -0.56 to 2.89). Both dopamine agonists, sumanirole and ropinirole, were statistically superior compared with placebo as adjunctive therapy for patients with advanced Parkinson's disease, based on UPDRS II + III total score. Noninferiority of sumanirole to ropinirole was established, with comparable tolerability profiles.

We analysed electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities, cardiovascular reflexes (CVR) and orthostatic hypotension (OH) in 148 patients with idiopathic PD assigned to five different combination therapies of levodopa (LD) plus either bromocriptine (BRO), ropinirole (ROP), selegiline (SEL), anticholinergic (ACH) or amantadine (AMA) or to LD monotherapy before and after a 1-week washout of the add-on drug. Patients were matched for age and disease severity (Hoehn and Yahr stage 2-3). Rater-blinded cardiovascular testing was performed at baseline, and following a 1-week washout period of the add-on drugs.

It is suggested that dysfunction of the diencephalospinal dopaminergic (DAergic) pathway may cause restless legs syndrome. We examined the mRNA and protein levels as well as DA receptor subtypes function within the lumbar spinal cord of an RLS animal model. C57BL/6 male mice with or without iron deprivation were lesioned with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) in the bilateral A11 nuclei. Locomotor behaviors were observed. DA concentration, mRNA, and protein levels of D1, D2, and D3 receptors in the lumbar spinal cords were analyzed, and the specific binding of D1, D2, and D3 receptors was determined using [(3)H]SCH23390, [(3)H]Spiperone, and [(3)H]PD128907 radioligands respectively. The behavioral tests showed that the locomotor activities were increased significantly in the mice treated with iron-deficiency (ID) diet and 6-OHDA lesions, which were reversed by the D2/D3 agonist ropinirole. DA in the spinal cord was decreased significantly by 6-OHDA lesioning in A11. D2/D3 mRNA and protein levels as well as their binding capacity in the spinal cord were decreased significantly by 6-OHDA lesions. ID with 6-OHDA lesions produced a synergistic greater decrease of D2 binding. Although ID increased D1 mRNA and protein expression in the spinal cord, it did not significantly change D1 receptor binding. The present study suggests that ID and 6-OHDA lesions in A11 nuclei differentially altered the D1, D2, and D3 receptors expression and binding capacity in the lumbar spinal cord of RLS animal model, which was accompanied by changes in locomotor activities.

In order to determine the overall rate of subjective sleep problems in PD and to determine if any factors, including specific medications, correlate with sleep pathology, the authors surveyed consecutive patients with PD seen over a 3-month period in a Movement Disorders Clinic. The authors collected demographic and medication data, and the patients completed the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), questions assessing the presence of restless legs syndrome (RLS), a modified National Sleep Foundation sleep survey, and specific questions regarding falling asleep while driving.

Considerable evidence indicates that cholinomimetic-induced tremulous jaw movements in rats share many characteristics with human Parkinsonian tremor, and several antiparkinsonian drugs suppress cholinomimetic-induced tremulous jaw movements. The present study investigated three different types of dopamine agonists, which have known antiparkinsonian characteristics, for their ability to suppress the tremulous jaw movements induced by tacrine (5.0 mg/kg). The non-selective dopamine agonist pergolide, a widely used antiparkinsonian drug, was highly potent at suppressing tacrine-induced jaw movements (e.g. 0.125-1.0 mg/kg). The selective D2 agonist ropinirole, which also is used clinically as an antiparkinsonian drug, suppressed jaw movements in the dose range of 2.5-20.0 mg/kg. The D1 agonist CY 208-243, which has been reported to suppress tremor, also reduced jaw movement activity (4.0 mg/kg). Across several studies, the rank order of potency for suppressing cholinomimetic-induced jaw movements in rats is related to the potency for producing antiparkinsonian effects in humans. Together with previous studies, the present results suggest that cholinomimetic-induced jaw movements in rats can be used to characterize dopaminergic antiparkinsonian agents and to investigate the basal ganglia circuits involved in the generation of tremulous movements.

A 54-year-old man with a left leg amputation 22 years ago developed RLS, primarily at night, that met the International RLS Study Group's criteria for RLS. This RLS, however, involved both his real and phantom lower limbs. Movement and phantom movements, as well as treatment with dopamine agonists, relieved this symptom in both the real and amputated limbs. However, creating an image of the limb moving without "moving" the limb did not improve the uncomfortable sensations in either limb.

Pharmacotherapy for Parkinson's disease is focused on dopaminergic drugs, mainly the dopamine precursor levodopa and dopamine receptor agonists. The elimination half-life (t(1/2)) of levodopa from plasma (in combination with a decarboxylase inhibitor) of about 1.5 hours becomes more influential as the disease progresses. The long-duration of response to levodopa, which is evident in early Parkinson's disease, diminishes and after a few years of treatment motor performance is closely correlated to the fluctuating plasma concentrations of levodopa. Absorption of levodopa in the proximal small intestine depends on gastric emptying, which is erratic and may be slowed in Parkinson's disease. The effects of levodopa on motor function are dependent on gastric emptying in patients in the advanced stages of disease. The current treatment concept is continuous dopaminergic stimulation (CDS). Sustained-release formulations of levodopa may provide more stable plasma concentrations. Oral liquid formulations shorten the time to reach peak concentration and onset of effect but do not affect plasma levodopa variability. The t(1/2) of levodopa can be prolonged by adding a catechol-O-methyltransferase inhibitor (entacapone or tolcapone), which may reduce fluctuations in plasma concentrations, although both peak and trough concentrations are increased with frequent administration. Intravenous and enteral (duodenal/jejunal) infusions of levodopa yield stable plasma levodopa concentrations and motor performance. Enteral infusion is feasible on a long-term basis in patients with severe fluctuations. Among the dopamine receptor agonists the ergot derivatives bromocriptine, cabergoline, dihydroergocryptine and pergolide, and the non-ergot derivatives piribedil, pramipexole and ropinirole, have longer t(1/2) compared with levodopa. Thus, they stimulate dopamine receptors in a less pulsatile manner, yet pharmacokinetic studies of repeated doses of dopamine receptor agonists are few. Optimisation of these drugs is often performed with standardised titration schedules. Apomorphine and lisuride have short t(1/2) and are suitable for subcutaneous infusion, with results similar to those of levodopa infusion. Transdermal administration of dopamine receptor agonists such as rotigotine might be an alternative in the future. In general, initial dopamine receptor agonist monotherapy is associated with poorer motor performance and lower incidence of motor complications compared with levodopa. Buccal administration of the monoamine oxidase-B inhibitor selegiline (deprenyl) provides better absorption and less formation of metabolites compared with standard tablets. To conclude, several new drugs, formulations and routes of administration have been introduced in the treatment of Parkinson's disease during the last decade, mainly with CDS as the aim. CDS can be approached by optimising the use of dopaminergic drugs based on pharmacokinetic data.

The baseline validation population included 551 subjects on which full longitudinal data are available. Psychometric assessment of four MOS sleep domains revealed satisfactory item convergent validity (r > 0.40) for most items. All domain items in both trials surpassed the standard for item discriminant validity, with no significant floor or ceiling effects. The MOS sleep domain scores showed good internal consistency reliability. Concurrent validity (r = 0.40) was exceeded in correlations between the RLS overall quality-of-life score and sleep problems index II. The clinical validity of the MOS Sleep Scale was demonstrated against self-reported RLS symptoms and clinician-determined severity; changes in MOS Sleep Scale were responsive to improvements in RLS severity, as measured by the Clinical Global Impression-Improvement and Severity-of-Illness scales.

To date, the lack of highly selective antagonists at the dopamine D(3) receptor has hampered clarification of their involvement in the actions of currently used therapies in Parkinson's disease. However, the novel benzopyranopyrrole, S33084, displays greater than 100-fold selectivity as an antagonist for D(3) versus D(2) receptors and all other sites tested. S33084 was administered to 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-lesioned marmosets previously primed with levodopa to elicit dyskinesia. Administered alone, S33084 exerted a modest, but significant, anti-parkinsonian effect without provoking dyskinesia. At low D(3)-selective doses (0.16 and 0.64 mg/kg), S33084 potentiated, though to different extents and in qualitatively different ways, the anti-parkinsonian actions of both ropinirole and levodopa. At these doses, S33084 did not significantly modify levodopa-induced or ropinirole-induced dyskinesia. These data suggest that ropinirole and levodopa do not exert their anti-parkinsonian or pro-dyskinetic actions via D(3) receptor stimulation. Indeed, stimulation of D(3) receptors may be detrimental to the anti-parkinsonian properties of D(2)/D(3) agonists. Selectivity for stimulation of D(2), over D(3), receptors may therefore be a beneficial property of dopamine receptor agonists in management of motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease patients with established dyskinesia.

Dopaminergic agents such as ropinirole are the drugs of first choice in treating restless legs syndrome (RLS). Recently, gabapentin, a structural analogue of gamma-aminobutyric acid, has also been shown to improve sensorimotor symptoms in RLS. Therefore, the tolerability and efficacy of randomized treatment with either gabapentin or ropinirole in patients with idiopathic RLS was evaluated in this 4-week open clinical trial. Patients with idiopathic RLS were treated with either 300 mg of gabapentin (n = 8) or 0.5 mg of ropinirole (n = 8) as the initial dose, and the dose was up-titrated until relief of symptoms was achieved (gabapentin mean dosage 800 +/- 397 mg, range 300-1,200 mg; ropinirole mean dosage 0.78 +/- 0.47 mg, range 0.25-1.50 mg). In both groups, International Restless Legs Syndrome Study Group questionnaire scores improved significantly (p < or = 0.018), whereas the scores of the Epworth sleepiness scale remained unchanged within normal limits. Polysomnographic data showed a reduction of periodic leg movements during sleep (PLMS; p < 0.03) and PLMS index (p < 0.02) in both groups. Side effects were only mild and mostly transient. After 6-10 months of follow-up, in most patients, RLS symptoms were still improved. We conclude that gabapentin and ropinirole provide a similarly well-tolerated and effective treatment of PLMS and sensorimotor symptoms in patients with idiopathic RLS.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of augmentation over 66 weeks of treatment with ropinirole in patients with primary restless legs syndrome (RLS). Augmentation is the main complication of long-term dopaminergic treatment of RLS. Despite widespread use of ropinirole in RLS, no studies have prospectively and systematically assessed the incidence of augmentation with its use. The study consisted of 26 weeks of double-blind flexible-dose treatment with ropinirole or placebo, followed by 40 weeks of open-label ropinirole treatment.. Patients had no previous history of augmentation. Potential cases of augmentation were identified with the Structured Interview for the Diagnosis of Augmentation and the Augmentation Severity Rating Scale and through reporting of adverse events. Cases were blindly evaluated by an expert panel using the NIH diagnostic criteria for augmentation. Four hundred and four patients participated in the double-blind study and 269 in the open-label phase, with a discontinuation rate of 42%. IRLS baseline scores improved at the end of the double-blind (DB) phase (mean ± SE) by -15.9 ± 0.76 for ropinirole, by -13.4 ± 0.77 for placebo (P < .05) and by -20.4 ± 0.55 during the open-label phase. The incidence rates of augmentation were 3.5% for ropinirole and <1% for placebo during the DB phase and 3% during the open-label phase. Clinically significant augmentation occurred in 3%, <1%, and 2%, respectively. Discontinuation of treatment occurred in 50% of all patients (7 of 14) with augmentation. The incidence of augmentation was 3.1% higher with ropinirole than with placebo. New patients with first episodes of augmentation continued to cumulate at a stable rate over the duration of this study.

Mucoadhesive temperature-mediated in situ gel formulations using chitosan and hydroxyl propyl methyl cellulose were used to enhance intranasal (i.n.) delivery of the dopamine D2 agonist ropinirole to the brain. Formulations were tested for gelation time, thermosensitivity, mucoadhesion, in vitro release and permeation, in vitro cytotoxicity, nasal clearance, in vivo bioavailability and brain uptake. In vivo bioavailability and brain uptake of ropinirole were assessed in albino rats following intranasal administration of 99mTc-ropinirole in situ gel, intranasal ropinirole solution and intravenous (i.v.) ropinirole solution. Radiolabeled ropinirole uptake was calculated as a fraction of administered dose. The absolute bioavailabilty of ropinirole from the temperature-mediated in situ gelling nasal formulation was 82%. The AUC (0-480 min) in brain after nasal administration of ropinirole in situ gel was 8.5 times (869 +/- 250% x min/g versus 102 +/- 20% x min/g) that obtained following i.v. administration, this value was also considerably higher (869 +/- 250% x min/g versus 281 +/- 52% x min/g) than that achieved with intranasal ropinirole solution. High brain direct drug transport percentage (DTP; 90.36%) and drug targeting index (DTI) > 1 confirms direct nose to brain transport of the intranasal in situ gel formulation of ropinirole.

Chronic congestive heart failure is a highly prevalent and progressive disorder associated with excess morbidity and mortality; it has huge economic impact. Left heart failure may be systolic or may occur as isolated diastolic dysfunction. The diastolic form predominates in older people. Sleep disorders are frequent in both types. Most systematic studies have been performed in patients with systolic heart failure. Prospective studies show the presence of obstructive and central sleep apnea, periodic limb movements, and significant alterations in sleep architecture, characterized by poor efficiency, excess stage 1 and arousals, and lack of deep sleep. Both obstructive sleep apnea and central sleep apnea occur in patients with heart failure and have been shown to be associated with excess mortality. Obstructive sleep apnea is best treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices. Central sleep apnea is also best treated with CPAP, but only about 50% of the patients are considered responders. Survival improves when heart failure patients are effectively treated with CPAP for both central and obstructive sleep apnea. A new positive airway pressure device, a pressure support servo-ventilator, is the next best choice for heart failure patients whose central sleep apnea does not respond to CPAP. Nocturnal oxygen should be used for patients whose central sleep apnea does not respond to positive pressure devices. Both periodic limb movements and insomnia could have adverse hemodynamic consequences for the failing heart. There are no guidelines or long-term studies regarding treatment of these conditions in heart failure. For restless legs syndrome with or without periodic limb movements, pramipexole and ropinirole have been approved. Treatment of insomnia comorbid with heart failure depends on the cause. In the absence of any known cause, a trial of ramelteon is the first choice.

A rater blinded to treatment evaluated Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale, Fahn-Tolosa-Marin Tremor Rating Scale, Nonmotor Symptoms Assessment Scale, and a structured buy requip questionnaire on ropinirole side effects. Besides, the patients self-administered EQ-5D, Parkinson's Disease Sleep Scale (PDSS-2), and Beck Depression Inventories. Branded and generic ropinirole treatment achieved similar scores on all tests measuring severity of motor symptoms (primary endpoint, UPDRS-III: 27.0 versus 28.0 points, P = 0.505). Based on patient diaries, the lengths of "good time periods" were comparable (10.5 and 10.0 hours for branded and generic ropinirole, resp., P = 0.670). However, generic ropinirole therapy achieved almost 3.0 hours shorter on time without dyskinesia (6.5 versus. 9.5 hours, P < 0.05) and 2.5 hours longer on time with slight dyskinesia (3.5 versus. 1.0 hours, P < 0.05) than the branded ropinirole did. Except for gastrointestinal problems, nonmotor symptoms were similarly controlled. Patients did not prefer either formulation. Although this study has to be interpreted with limitations, it demonstrated that both generic and branded ropinirole administration can achieve similar control on most symptoms of PD.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most important age-related neurodegenerative disorder in developed societies, after Alzheimer's disease, with a prevalence ranging from 41 per 100,000 in the fourth decade of life to over 1900 per 100,000 in people over 80 years of age. As a movement disorder, the PD phenotype is characterized by rigidity, resting tremor, and bradykinesia. Parkinson's disease -related neurodegeneration is likely to occur several decades before the onset of the motor symptoms. Potential risk factors include environmental toxins, buy requip drugs, pesticides, brain microtrauma, focal cerebrovascular damage, and genomic defects. Parkinson's disease neuropathology is characterized by a selective loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta, with widespread involvement of other central nervous system (CNS) structures and peripheral tissues. Pathogenic mechanisms associated with genomic, epigenetic and environmental factors lead to conformational changes and deposits of key proteins due to abnormalities in the ubiquitin-proteasome system together with dysregulation of mitochondrial function and oxidative stress. Conventional pharmacological treatments for PD are dopamine precursors (levodopa, l-DOPA, l-3,4 dihidroxifenilalanina), and other symptomatic treatments including dopamine agonists (amantadine, apomorphine, bromocriptine, cabergoline, lisuride, pergolide, pramipexole, ropinirole, rotigotine), monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors (selegiline, rasagiline), and catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors (entacapone, tolcapone). The chronic administration of antiparkinsonian drugs currently induces the "wearing-off phenomenon", with additional psychomotor and autonomic complications. In order to minimize these clinical complications, novel compounds have been developed. Novel drugs and bioproducts for the treatment of PD should address dopaminergic neuroprotection to reduce premature neurodegeneration in addition to enhancing dopaminergic neurotransmission. Since biochemical changes and therapeutic outcomes are highly dependent upon the genomic profiles of PD patients, personalized treatments should rely on pharmacogenetic procedures to optimize therapeutics.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. It is characterized by bradykinesia, hypokinesia/ akinesia, rigidity, tremor, and postural instability, caused by dopaminergic (DA) striatal denervation. The prevalence of PD increases from 50 years of age with steep rise after age 60 years. Current treatment of buy requip PD relies heavily on replacing lost dopamine either with its precursor L-dopa or dopamine agonists (ropinirole, pramipexole, bromocriptine, lisuride etc). Other pharmacological measures like catechol-O-methyltrasferase (COMT) inhibitors like entacopone, telcapone and monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) inhibitors like selegiline and rasagiline are also useful, while L-dopa remains the gold standard in the treatment of PD. Emerging therapies are focusing on cell based therapeutics derived from various sources.

In receptor binding assays with ultra-high-affinity radioligands, it is difficult, in practice, to adhere the golden rule buy requip that the receptor concentration in the assay should be substantially (at least 10-fold) lower than the dissociation constant (K(d)) of the radioligand and inhibition constant (K(i)) of compound. Especially for low specific activity radioligands (usually tritiated ligands of a couple of TBq/mmol), routinely applied in concentrations at around or below the K(d), the use of extremely small amounts of receptor protein per assay will result in low levels of bound radioactivity; the alternative use of larger assay volumes will make it difficult to apply 96-well filtration devices. For assessing the inhibition constant (K(i)) of competitive inhibitors under conditions violating the above golden rule, equations are available incorporating both [receptor] and [ligand] versus K(d); however, their application requires precise knowledge of [receptor] or initial bound/free [radioligand] ratio. In this study, we present the theoretical basis for determining the K(i) for a competitive inhibitor in a new protocol at high [protein] and high [radioligand] with the simple Cheng-Prusoff correction without the need to correct for [receptor] or initial bound/free [radioligand] ratio. In addition, we present results on the binding of the ultra-high-affinity ligand [(3)H]spiperone to dopamine D(2) and D(3) receptors validating the K(i) values calculated with the new protocol for competitive inhibitors as compared with those calculated with the most comprehensive equation available to date, that of Munson and Rodbard (1988). Binding was measured at varying [radioligand] and [receptor], test compounds (including (-)5-OH-DPAT, (+/-)7-OH-DPAT, and ropinirole) were run with varying [receptor], and simulations were done at vastly varying [radioligand] for inhibitors with vastly different K(i)s. The modified high [radioligand] protocol presented here removes a major hindrance in the proper execution of binding assays with ultra-high-affinity tritiated ligands with K(d) values in the sub-nanomolar range, allowing the use of 96-well plates with small volumes of 100-200 microl per binding assay.

Dopamine agonist treatment of PD carries a substantial risk of pathological behaviors. These occurred in 16% of agonist-treated patients; however, when assessing patients whose dose was at least minimally in the therapeutic range, the frequency jumped to 24%. Pathological gambling and hypersexuality were most common. Carbidopa/levodopa therapy taken concurrently with a dopamine agonist appeared to be an important risk factor. Cystitis Bactrim Dose

At the end of titration, before the first Cordarone Drug Interactions dose switch, there were substantial reductions in mean Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) motor scores. During maintenance periods, both groups showed similar efficacy on the UPDRS motor score. Overall mean (standard error) change from period baseline was -0.1 (0.28) for ropinirole 24-h prolonged release, and 0.6 (0.30) for ropinirole immediate release (adjusted mean treatment difference -0.7; 95% confidence interval [CI]: -1.51, 0.10; p = 0.0842). The upper limit of the 95% CI was less than the predefined threshold of 3 points for non-inferiority. Ropinirole 24-h prolonged release was well-tolerated when titrated more rapidly than ropinirole immediate release; overnight switching between formulations was also well-tolerated. Study limitations included complexity of the non-inferiority study design and the forced dose-titration schedule.

Excessive daytime sleepiness was present overall in 327 (51%) of the 638 patients and in 213 (51%) of the 420 drivers. Patients taking a variety of different dopamine agonists had no differences in Epworth sleepiness scores, in the composite score, or in the risk of falling asleep while driving. Sixteen patients (3.8%) had experienced at least 1 episode of sudden onset of sleep while driving (after the diagnosis of PD); in 3 (0.7%), it occurred without warning. The 2 risk factors associated with falling asleep at the Aciphex Reviews wheel were the Epworth Sleepiness Scale score (odds ratio [OR], 1.14; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.06-1.24) and the Inappropriate Sleep Composite Score (OR, 2.54; 95% CI, 1.76-3.66). A standard Epworth Sleepiness Scale score of 7 or higher predicted 75% of episodes of sleep behind the wheel at a specificity of 50% (exclusion of the question related to driving provided 70% sensitivity and 52% specificity), whereas a score of 1 on the Inappropriate Sleep Composite Score generated a sensitivity of 52% and specificity of 82%.

It is suggested that dysfunction of the diencephalospinal dopaminergic (DAergic) pathway may cause restless legs syndrome. We examined the mRNA and protein levels as well as DA receptor subtypes function within the lumbar spinal cord of an RLS animal model. C57BL/6 male mice with or without iron deprivation were lesioned with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) in the bilateral A11 nuclei. Locomotor behaviors were observed. DA concentration, mRNA, and protein levels of D1, D2, and D3 receptors in the lumbar spinal cords were analyzed, and the specific binding of D1, D2, and D3 receptors was determined using [(3)H]SCH23390, [(3)H]Spiperone, and [(3)H]PD128907 radioligands respectively. The behavioral tests showed that the locomotor activities were increased significantly in the mice treated with iron-deficiency (ID) diet and 6-OHDA lesions, which were Protonix Name Brand reversed by the D2/D3 agonist ropinirole. DA in the spinal cord was decreased significantly by 6-OHDA lesioning in A11. D2/D3 mRNA and protein levels as well as their binding capacity in the spinal cord were decreased significantly by 6-OHDA lesions. ID with 6-OHDA lesions produced a synergistic greater decrease of D2 binding. Although ID increased D1 mRNA and protein expression in the spinal cord, it did not significantly change D1 receptor binding. The present study suggests that ID and 6-OHDA lesions in A11 nuclei differentially altered the D1, D2, and D3 receptors expression and binding capacity in the lumbar spinal cord of RLS animal model, which was accompanied by changes in locomotor activities.

In recent years, the treatment of Parkinson's disease has undergone an immense amount of research, resulting in the development of multiple new medications. This has largely been fuelled by dissatisfaction over the development of motor complications secondary to long term levodopa therapy. Different treatment approaches are applied depending on the stage of Parkinson's disease. In early and mild Parkinson's disease, selegiline offers a limited symptomatic effect. Its neuroprotective effect, although at present theoretical, has questionable clinical relevance. Increased mortality associated with selegiline has been reported, although a meta-analysis of 5 different trials did not support this finding. The newer, non-ergoline dopamine agonists, pramipexole and ropinirole, have undergone extensive studies to evaluate their efficacy as monotherapy in early Parkinson's disease. These newer agonists are ideal initial symptomatic medications, primarily because they delay the onset of levodopa-induced motor fluctuations. Efficacy of the newer dopamine agonists in advanced disease seems to be comparable to that of the older agents, bromocriptine and pergolide. Adverse effects can be reduced by starting the medication at a very low dose and then slowly titrating upward. Catechol-O-methyl transferase (COMT) inhibitors are indicated for the treatment of motor fluctuations in advanced disease, particularly the 'wearing-off' phenomenon. Tolcapone, a peripheral and central COMT inhibitor, appears to be quite effective, producing a 47% reduction in 'off' time. Unfortunately, 3 deaths have been observed, which are presumably secondary to tolcapone therapy. The drug has been withdrawn in many countries, and liver enzyme testing is mandatory in the US. Entacapone, a purely peripheral COMT inhibitor with a lower potency than tolcapone, has also proved to be effective and has not been associated with liver damage, obviating the need for testing.

Ropinirole is at least as good as bromocriptine in patients with Parkinson's disease with motor complications in terms of improving off time and reducing levodopa dose, without increasing adverse events including dyskinesia. However, these comparitor studies may have been underpowered to detect clinically meaningful differences between the agonists. Further, much larger, phase IV studies are required to examine the efficacy, effectiveness, and safety of all of the dopamine agonists as adjuvant therapy in Parkinson's disease.

In this randomized, partially double blind, placebo controlled trial, thirty two hemodialysis patients with restless legs syndrome were randomly assigned into three groups: 1) the exercise training group (N = 16), 2) the dopamine agonists group (ropinirole 0.25 mg/d) (N = 8) and 3) the placebo group (N = 8). The intervention programs lasted 6 months. Restless Legs Syndrome severity was assessed using the international severity scale, physical performance by a battery of tests, muscle size and composition by computed tomography, body composition by Dual Energy X Ray Absorptiometry, while depression score, sleep quality, daily sleepiness and quality of life were assessed through questionnaires.
