Abstract:

Parkinson's disease, a disorder of involuntary motor control, already affects more than one million Americans, and the incidence is likely to rise as the population ages. Although the disease typically affects people over age 60, one patient in ten develops sysmptoms before age 50. Levodopa controls symptoms, but over time the effectivess of the drug diminishes, while the risk of side effects increases. Early use of deprenyl may offer neuroprotective effects, thus delaying the need for levodopa until later in the course of the illness. Treatment must be individualized to address the specific symptomatology and circumstances of each patient. In this program, a leading expert describes strategies for early diagnosis and effective management of Parkinson's disease, including drug protocols and new approaches to treatment. The importance of counseling patients and their families about the course of the disease and reasonable expectations for response to treatment is emphasized.
