Abstract

The treatment of idiopathic Parkinson's disease becomes rather difficult if levodopa-induced late complications such as motor fluctuations or dyskinesias occur. This prospective and open study shows that an add-on therapy with entacapone can significantly lower wearing-off and end-of-dose akinesia. This treatment is well tolerated and easy to perform.
