Metabolic Solutions Development Company Awarded Funding by The Michael J. Fox Foundation
Date:2/7/2013

5 million people globally suffer from Parkinson's disease, a neurodegenerative disorder caused by the diminished production of dopamine, a key neurotransmitter, resulting in progressive impairment of motor function including tremors, rigidity and difficulty in moving. Long-term treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients with levodopa, also called L-dopa, typically leads to unwanted side effects including L-dopa induced dyskinesia (LID), which prevents optimal treatment of the disease.

L-dopa Induced Dyskinesia
Levodopa, also called L-dopa, is the most commonly administered drug to treat Parkinson's symptoms. L-dopa helps restore levels of dopamine, a chemical messenger in the brain responsible for smooth, coordinated movement and other motor and cognitive functions. Dyskinesia is a common side effect of L-dopa treatment. These involuntary, uncontrollable, and often excessive movements are distinct from the rhythmic tremor commonly associated with Parkinson's disease.
