Opioid hypofunction in Parkinson's disease.

Abstract

Loss of dopaminergic neuronal function has been the most consistent biochemical abnormality found in Parkinson's disease. Hypofunction of other transmitter systems has also been demonstrated in this disease. Recently, an opioid-dopamine link has been demonstrated. This paper provides evidence supporting an opioid system hypofunction in Parkinson's disease.
