Parkinson's Disease - The Future 2012

What’s in the pipeline?

Although it is the gold standard for Parkinson’s Disease, levodopa is not the perfect treatment because of associated complications such as the development of dyskinesias and “wearing-off”. Further, it does not address other unmet needs in PD such as the ability to treat non-dopamine features and slow the clinical progression of the disease. In this new program, Dr. Warren Olanow and other experts discuss new therapies designed to address these unmet needs, both pharmacologically and with physical interventions.
