Parkinson's disease is a common condition, usually treated by dopaminergic agents, both ergot and non-ergot. Many behavioural abnormalities are associated with such usage, including impulse control disorders (ICDs), dopamine dysregulation syndrome and 'punding'. Pathological gambling, a form of ICD, comprises persistent and maladaptive gambling of various types that disrupts personal, family or occupational activity. Pathological gambling may be associated with other abnormal actions such as pathological shopping, hoarding and hypersexuality. The incidence varies widely from study to study but may be up to 7% of users of dopaminergic agents. Recognition of this problem has led drug regulatory agencies to add precautions concerning pathological gambling to official drug information for the entire class of antiparkinsonian medications. The literature is not entirely consistent and opinions differ greatly, but pramipexole (a dopamine D2 and D3 agonist), and perhaps ropinirole (also a D2/D3 agonist), may be especially likely to be associated with pathological gambling, although the precise nature of the relationship is unclear. Treatment involves reducing the dose of the medication or switching to another medication; unfortunately, the Parkinson's disease may worsen. The mechanism of this adverse effect is believed to be excessive dopaminergic stimulation but probably not specifically involving D3 receptors. A parallel to addictive behaviour with stimulant drugs has been noted.

The results of our study indicate a high likelihood of ropinirole PR being cost saving or at least being considered cost effective for use in the Netherlands. However, claims included in our model regarding dyskinesia and improved medication adherence should be further supported by data from daily practice.

This was a cohort study that employed the UK General Practice Research Database. Two cohorts were assembled, one consisting of patients with an initial diagnosis of RLS between 1990 and 2004 and the other consisting of patients without RLS matched to cases in a 10:1 ratio by general practice, year of birth, sex, and registration with the practice on the case index date (date of the RLS diagnosis). The frequency of RLS-specific symptoms was estimated based on records of prescriptions for sleep medications and antidepressants, and reported cramps and leg problems other than RLS. Rates of resource use in the 2 years before and after the index date were estimated for both cohorts based on the numbers of total prescriptions, referrals to secondary care, and laboratory tests.

Pharmacodynamical differences between dopamine agonists (DAs) suggest differences in their adverse drug reactions (ADRs) profile. In this study, frequencies of ADR to DAs or levodopa reports in the French Pharmacovigilance Database were explored. Reports occurring between January 1, 1984 and December 31, 2008 were selected (2,189 for DAs and 1,315 for levodopa). The numbers of ADRs by system organ class were compared using ropinirole as a reference. Diurnal somnolence was less frequently reported with all DAs when compared with ropinirole (P < 0.001). Impulse control disorders (ICDs) were more frequently reported with pramipexole (P < 0.001). Significant difference was found among DAs in the frequency of confusion or disorientation (P < 0.001), nausea and vomiting (P < 0.05), or edemas (P < 0.001). No difference among DAs was observed in the frequency of hallucination or arterial hypotension ADR reports (P = 0.3 and P = 0.1). Pleural effusions were more frequently reported with pergolide or bromocriptine (P < 0.001). Somnolence or ICD reports were less frequent with levodopa, whereas confusion was more frequently reported. In summary, our data show significant differences in the kind of ADRs reported for each DA.

Current Health Canada instructions for use of the dopamine agonists (DA), pramipexole and ropinirole, state that Parkinson's disease (PD) patients should be told not to drive. The objective was to assess neurologists' actual clinical practice concerning driving advice they give to PD patients starting a DA.

Depression occurs in approximately 45% of all patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), reduces quality of life independent of motor symptoms and seems to be underrated and undertreated. Characteristics of symptoms differ from major depression. Because of overlapping clinical symptoms, diagnosis is based on subjectively experienced anhedonia and feeling of emptiness. Available rating scales for major depression may not be adequate to correctly measure severity of depression in PD. Anxiety and depression may manifest as first symptoms of PD many years before motor symptoms. Serotonergic, noradrenergic and dopaminergic mechanisms play key roles in the etiology of depression in PD. Tricyclic and newer, selective antidepressants including serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SSRI, SNRI) appear to be effective in treating depression in PD. Selective reuptake inhibitors seem to have a favorable side effect profile. Recent controlled studies show antidepressant effects of pramipexole in bipolar II depression. New dopamine agonists pramipexole and ropinirole appear to ameliorate depressive symptoms in PD in addition to effects on motor symptoms. There is a lack of appropriate rating scales and controlled studies regarding depression in PD.

Inflammatory injury plays a critical role in intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH)-induced secondary brain injury. Recently, dopamine D2 receptor (DRD2) is identified as an important component controlling innate immunity and inflammatory response in central nervous system, and αB-crystallin (CRYAB) is a potent negative regulator on inflammatory pathways. Here, we sought to investigate the role of DRD2 on neuroinflammation after experimental ICH and the potential mechanism mediated by CRYAB.

1. Ropinirole, SK&F 101468 has been characterized preclinically as a specific dopamine D2-receptor agonist. Nine male healthy subjects were investigated for the effects on supine and erect heart rate and blood pressure, catecholamines and prolactin, of a single dose of 800 micrograms ropinirole preceded by a single dose of 20 mg domperidone or domperidone-placebo, and those of a single dose of domperidone followed by ropinirole-placebo. 2. Single doses of 800 micrograms ropinirole did not cause clinically significant changes in supine resting heart rate and blood pressure. However, they caused postural faintness on 3 min immobile upright standing on 10/26 occasions. 3. Pretreatment with 20 mg domperidone 1 h before administration of ropinirole prevented the postural symptoms in all but one subject. It did not alter ropinirole's plasma pharmacokinetics. 4. Ropinirole did not alter supine or standing catecholamine concentrations. 5. Domperidone increased the plasma concentrations of prolactin whereas ropinirole administered alone reduced them. A single dose of 800 micrograms ropinirole did not attenuate the prolactin increase induced by a single dose of 20 mg domperidone administered 1 h earlier.

Eleven subjects (11.7%) were classified as having definitive or highly suggestive clinical indication of augmentation. In comparing the augmentation group with the non-augmentation group, there were no significant differences of baseline clinical characteristics. Four (13.3%) of the dopamine agonists monotherapy group and seven (10.9%) of the combination therapy group were categorized as augmentation. There was no significant difference in the augmentation rate between these two groups.

The novel naphtoxazine derivative and preferential D(3) vs D(2) receptor agonist, S32504, restores perturbed motor function in rodent and primate models of antiparkinsonian activity with a potency superior to those of two further, preferential D(3) receptor agonists, pramipexole and ropinirole. However, potential neuroprotective properties of S32054 have not, to date, been evaluated. Herein, employing several measures of cellular integrity, we demonstrate that S32504 robustly, concentration-dependently and completely protects terminally differentiated SH-SY5Y cells against 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+)-induced cell death in vitro. Further, S32504 was substantially more potent than pramipexole and ropinirole, the latter of which was neurotoxic at high concentrations. In vivo, subchronic treatment with low (0.25 mg/kg) and high (2.5 mg/kg) doses of S32504 prior to and during treatment of mice with 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine, MPTP, provided complete protection against MPTP-induced tyrosine hydroxylase immunoreactive (TH-IR) neuronal death in the substantia nigra pars compacta and ventral tegmental area. A high dose of ropinirole (2.5 mg/kg) provided some protection but statistical significance was not attained, and a low dose (0.25 mg/kg) was ineffective. Neither drug afforded protection against the MPTP-induced loss of DA fibers in the striatum, as measured by TH-IR and dopamine transporter immunoreactive fiber counts. In conclusion, the novel naphotoxazine and dopaminergic agonist, S32504, robustly protects dopaminergic neurones against the neurotoxic effects of MPP(+) and MPTP in in vitro and in vivo models, respectively. The underlying mechanisms and therapeutic pertinence of these actions will be of interest to further evaluate in view of its potent actions in behavioral models of antiparkinson activity.

We have previously reported that specific dopamine agonists mediate protection against apoptosis induced by oxidative stress by activating the D2 receptor-coupled phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI-3K)/Akt pathway. In the present study we examined the downstream effectors of PI-3K/Akt signaling and their role in cell death after oxidative stress and protection provided by ropinirole, a D2 receptor agonist in PC12 cells and primary cultures of dopamine neurons. Ropinirole treatment was associated with rapid translocation and phosphorylation of the PI-3K substrate Akt and phosphorylation of Akt substrates. One of these Akt downstream substrates was identified as the pro-apoptotic factor glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK-3beta). Ropinirole-induced protection was associated with phosphorylation of GSK-3beta (inactivation). In contrast, inhibition of PI-3K blocked the phosphorylation of Akt and GSK-3beta (activation) and prevented the protection mediated by ropinirole. Suppression of Akt with specific short hairpin RNA in normal PC12 cells caused cell death, which was associated with reduced phosphorylation of GSK-3beta and reduced levels of beta-catenin, a transcriptional activator that is regulated by GSK-3beta. Knock-out of GSK-3beta expression with a short hairpin RNA alone was itself sufficient to cause cell death. We further demonstrated that oxidative stress induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) dephosphorylates Akt and GSK-3beta, increases GSK-3beta activity, and promotes an interaction with beta-catenin and its degradation. Inhibition of GSK-3beta activity by inhibitor VIII protects cells from H2O2 similar to ropinirole. These results indicate that GSK-3beta downstream of Akt plays a critical role in cell death and survival in these models.

This is an update to an article published in this journal in 2006, which covered the initial treatment of Parkinson's disease (PD). In this update, we review new research into symptomatic treatments, potential disease modifying ("neuroprotective") agents, and evidence-based reviews of current treatment. We discuss the usage of the MAO-B inhibitors, including the controversy surrounding the possible neuroprotective effects of rasagiline. Usage of extended release formulations of pramipexole and ropinirole, as well as the transdermal dopamine agonist rotigotine, are reviewed. Side effects of the dopamine agonists are discussed, including the cardiac side effects of ergot-derived dopamine agonists, and the impulse control disorders associated with the dopamine agonists. The use of zonisamide as an agent for PD tremor is reviewed. We touch on the clinical research into the benefits of exercise in PD, and briefly review some of the current studies for new formulations of levodopa and other medications and treatments with novel mechanisms of action.

The first effective drugs for Parkinson's disease (PD) were anticholinergics, introduced at the end of century by Charcot. Since the introduction of levodopa in the sixties of the previous century, many new drugs have emerged for the treatment of Parkinson's disease: dopamine agonists (ergot as well as non-ergot, bromocriptine, pergolide, mirapexine, ropinirole), MAO B inhibitors (selegiline, rasagiline), amantadine, COMT inhibitors (entacapone, tolcapone). In all stages of the disease, levodopa remains the most effective drug for improving motor symptoms in PD. However, long term treatment with levodopa is accompanied by the development of motor fluctuations, dyskinesia, cognitive and neuropsychiatric adverse effects and increasingly diverse spectrum of drugs is needed to alleviate motor and nonmotor symptoms. Some of these drugs have caused considerable concern and controversies and were regarded at certain points as the 'bad guys' of Parkinson's disease pharmacological armamentarium. In the article, a short review of 'bad guys' including anticholinergics, selegiline, tolcapone and dopamine agonists, is given.

Two patients with Parkinson's disease received treatment with ropinirole and/or pramipexole, during which both experienced sleep attacks. These attacks may be a class effect of non-ergot dopamine agonists. Health care professionals should be aware of the potential of these agents to cause sleep attacks and caution patients about this potentially life-threatening adverse effect.

In addition to the classical motor symptoms, motivational and affective deficits are core impairments of Parkinson's disease (PD). We recently demonstrated, by lesional approaches in rats, that degeneration of the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) dopaminergic (DA) neurons is likely to have a crucial role in the development of these neuropsychiatry symptoms. We have also shown that, as in clinical investigations, chronic treatment with levodopa or the DA D2/D3 receptor (D2/D3R) agonist ropinirole specifically reverses these PD-related motivational deficits. The roles of specific DA receptor subtypes in such reversal effects remain, however, unknown. We therefore investigated here the precise involvement of D1, D2 and D3R in the reversal of the motivational and affective deficits related to SNc DA neuronal loss. Three weeks after bilateral and partial 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) SNc lesions, rats received 14 daily intraperitoneal administrations of the selective D1R agonist SKF-38393 (2.5 or 3.5 mg kg(-1)), the selective D2R agonist sumanirole (0.1 or 0.15 mg kg(-1)), or the preferring D3R gonist PD-128907 (0.1 or 0.15 mg kg(-1)). Anxiety-, depressive-like and motivated behaviors were assessed in an elevated-plus maze, a forced-swim test, and an operant sucrose self-administration procedure, respectively. All DA agonists attenuated anxiety- and depressive-like behaviors. However, only PD-128907 reversed the motivational deficits induced by 6-OHDA SNc lesions. This effect was blocked by a selective D3R (SB-277011A, 10 mg kg(-1)), but not D2R (L-741,626, 1.5 mg kg(-1)), antagonist. These data provide strong evidence for the role of D3R in motivational processes and identify this receptor as a potentially valuable target for the treatment of PD-related neuropsychiatric symptoms.

Restless Legs Syndrome/Willis-Ekbom Disease (RLS/WED) is a common condition characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs, concomitant with an unpleasant sensation in the lower limbs, which is typically relieved by movement. Symptoms occur predominantly at rest and prevail in the afternoon or evening. Treatment of patients with RLS/WED is indicated for those patients who suffer from clinically relevant symptoms. The management of mild forms of RLS/WED is mainly based on dopamine agonists (DA) therapy (including pramipexole and ropinirole) and α-2-δ calcium-channel ligand. Nevertheless, with passing of time, symptoms tend to become more severe and the patient can eventually develop pharmacoresistance. Furthermore, long-term treatment with dopaminergic agents may be complicated by the development of augmentation, which is defined by an increase in the severity and frequency of RLS/WED symptoms despite adequate treatment. Here, we discuss which are the best therapeutic options when RLS/WED becomes intractable, with a focus buy requip on advantages and side effects of the available medications. Prevention strategies include managing lifestyle changes and a good sleep hygiene. Different drug options are available. Switching to longer-acting dopaminergic agents may be a possibility if the patient is well-tolerating DA treatment. An association with α-2-δ calcium-channel ligand is another first-line approach. In refractory RLS/WED, opioids such as oxycodone-naloxone have demonstrated good efficacy. Other pharmacological approaches include IV iron, benzodiazepines such as clonazepam, and antiepileptic drugs, with different level of evidence of efficacy. Therefore, the final decision regarding the agent to use in treating severe RLS/WED symptoms should be tailored to the patient, taking into account the symptomatology, comorbidities, the availability of treatment and the history of the disease.

The drug MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, produces a specific and distinct buy requip open hearted mental state, which led to the creation of a new pharmacological class, "entactogens". Extensive literature on its mechanisms of action has come to characterize MDMA as a "messy" drug with multiple mechanisms, but the consensus is that the distinctive entactogenic effects arise from the release of neurotransmitters, primarily serotonin. I propose an alternative hypothesis: The entactogenic mental state is due to the simultaneous direct activation of imidazoline-1 (I1) and serotonin-2 (5-HT2) receptors by MDMA. This hypothesis emerges from "mental organ" theory, which embodies many hypotheses, the most relevant of which are: "Mental organs" are populations of neurons that all express their defining metabotropic receptor, and each mental organ plays a distinct role in the mind, a role shaped by evolution as mental organs evolve by duplication and divergence. Mental organs are the mechanism by which evolution sculpts the mind. Mental organs can be in or out of consciousness. In order for a mental organ to enter consciousness, three things must happen: The mental organ must be activated directly at its defining receptor. 5-HT2 must be simultaneously activated. One of the functions of activated 5-HT2 is to load other simultaneously activated mental organs fully into consciousness. In some cases THC must be introduced to remove long-term blocks mediated by the cannabinoid system. I propose the "primer/probe" method to test these hypotheses. A "primer" is a drug that selectively activates 5-HT2 (e.g. DOB or MEM) or serotonin-1 (5-HT1) and 5-HT2 (e.g. DOET or 2C-B-fly). A "probe" is a drug that activates a receptor whose corresponding mental organ we wish to load into consciousness in order to understand its role in the mind. The mental organ is loaded into consciousness when the primer and probe are taken together, but not when taken separately. For example, the blood pressure medications rilmenidine and moxonidine are selective for imidazoline-1 and can be used to test the hypothesis that the entactogenic mental effects of MDMA are due to loading the imidazoline-1 mental organ into consciousness. The primer/probe method is not limited to testing the specific hypothesis about MDMA and imidazoline, but is a general method for studying the role of mental organs in the mind. For example, the role of dopamine mental organs can be studied by using Parkinson's drugs such as ropinirole or pramipexole as probes.

Here we report a structure-activity relationship (SAR) study of analogues of 5/7-{[2-(4-aryl-piperazin-1-yl)-ethyl]-propyl-amino}-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-naphthalen-2-ol. Our SAR is focused on introduction of various substitutions in the piperazine ring of the hybrid template. The goal behind this study is to delineate the nature of the binding pocket for N-aryl substitution in the piperazine ring by observing the effect of various hydrophobic and other heteroaromatic substitutions on binding affinity (K(i)), as measured with tritiated spiperone and HEK-293 cells expressing either D(2) or D(3) receptors. Functional activity of selected compounds was assessed with the GTPgammaS binding assay. Compound 8d was the most selective for the D(3) receptor in the spiperone binding assay. An interesting similarity in binding affinity was observed between isoquinoline derivative D-301 and the 2-substituted pyridine derivative 8d, suggesting the importance of relative spatial relationships between the N-atom of the ligand and the molecular determinants of the binding pocket in D(2)/D(3) receptors. Functional activity assays demonstrated high potency and selectivity of (+)-8a and (-)-28b (D(2)/D(3) (ratio of EC(50)): 105 and 202, respectively) for the D(3) receptor and both compounds were more selective compared to the reference drug ropinirole (D(2 buy requip )/D(3) (ratio of EC(50)): 29.5).

It is a common belief that individual variation in response to treatment is an important explanation for the variation in observed outcomes in clinical trials. If such variation is large, it seems reasonable to suppose that progress in treating disease will be advanced by classifying patients according to their abilities or not to 'respond' to particular treatments. We consider that there is currently buy requip a lost opportunity in drug development. There is a great deal of talk about individual response to treatment and tailor-made drugs. However, relatively little work is being done to formally investigate, using suitable designs, where individual response to treatment may be important. Through a case study from a replicate cross-over study we show how, given suitable replication, it is possible to isolate the component of variation corresponding to patient-by-treatment interaction and hence investigate the possibility of individual response to treatment.

Cabergoline, bromocriptine, pergolide, (±)-7-hydroxy-N,N-di-n-propyl-2-aminotetralin (7-OH-DPAT), talipexole, pramipexole, R-(+)-trans-3,4,4a,10b-tetrahydro-4-propyl-2H,5H-[1]benzopyrano[4,3-b]-1,4-oxazin-9-olhydrochloride (PD128907) and buy requip ropinirole behaved as dopamine D(2) and D(3) receptor full agonists and showed higher potencies in hD(2L)-High and hD(2S)-High compared to hD(2L)-Low and hD(2S)-Low. In hD(3)-Ser-9 and hD(3)-Gly-9 compared to hD(2L)-Low and hD(2S)-Low, dopamine, ropinirole, PD128907, and pramipexole potencies were clearly higher; talipexole and 7-OH-DPAT showed slightly higher potencies; pergolide showed slightly lower potency; and, cabergoline and bromocriptine potencies were lower. Aripiprazole acted as an antagonist in hD(2L)-Low; a low intrinsic activity partial agonist in hD(2S)-Low; a moderate partial agonist in hD(3)-Ser-9 and hD(3)-Gly-9; a robust partial agonist in hD(2L)-High; and a full agonist in hD(2S)-High. Amisulpride, sulpiride and perphenazine behaved as preferential antagonists; and chlorpromazine and asenapine behaved as modest preferential antagonists; whereas fluphenazine, haloperidol, and blonanserin behaved as non-preferential antagonists in hD(2S)-Low and hD(2S)-High compared to hD(3)-Ser-9 and hD(3)-Gly-9. These findings may help to elucidate the basis of therapeutic benefit observed with these drugs, with varying mechanisms of action, in the treatment of Parkinson's disease, depression and schizophrenia.

Three sensitive, selective, accurate spectrophotometric and spectrofluorimetric methods have been developed for the determination of ropinirole hydrochloride in tablets. The first method was based on measuring the absorbance of drug solution in methanol at 250 nm. The Beer's law was obeyed in the concentration range 2.5-24 microg ml(-1). The second method was based on the charge transfer reaction of drug, as n-electron donor with 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (TCNQ), as pi-acceptor in acetonitrile to give radical anions that are measured at 842 nm. The Beer's law was obeyed in the concentration range 0.6-8 microg ml(-1). The third method was based on derivatization reaction with 4-chloro-7-nitrobenzofurazan (NBD-Cl) in borate buffer of pH 8.5 followed by measuring the fluorescence intensity at 525 nm with excitation at 464 nm in chloroform. Beer's law was obeyed in the concentration range 0.01-1.3 microg ml(-1). The derivatization reaction product of drug buy requip with NBD-Cl was characterized by IR, 1H NMR and mass spectroscopy. The developed methods were validated. The following analytical parameters were investigated: the molar absorptivity (epsilon), limit of detection (LOD, microg ml(-1)) and limit of quantitation (LOQ, microg ml(-1)), precision, accuracy, recovery, and Sandell's sensitivity. Selectivity was validated by subjecting stock solution of ropinirole to acidic, basic, oxidative, and thermal degradation. No interference was observed from common excipients present in formulations. The proposed methods were successfully applied for determination of drug in tablets. The results of these proposed methods were compared with each other statistically.

Graft-induced dyskinesia (GID) is a serious complication induced by dopamine (DA) cell transplantation in parkinsonian patients. We have recently shown that DA D2 receptor blockade produces striking blockade of dyskinesia induced by amphetamine in grafted 6-OHDA-lesioned rats, a model of GID. This study was designed to investigate whether blockade of DA D1 receptors could produce similar outcome, and to see whether the effect of these treatments in grafted rats was specific for dyskinesia induced by amphetamine, or could also influence L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia (LID). L-DOPA-primed rats received transplants of fetal DA neurons into the DA-denervated striatum. Beginning at 20weeks after transplantation rats were subjected to pharmacological treatments with either L-DOPA (6mg/kg) or amphetamine (1.5mg/kg) alone, or in combination with the D1 receptor antagonist SCH23390, the D2 receptor antagonist eticlopride, and the 5-HT1A agonist/D2 receptor antagonist buspirone. Grafted rats developed severe GID, while LID was reduced. Both eticlopride and SCH23390 produced near-complete suppression of GID already at very low doses (0.015 and 0.1mg buy requip /kg, respectively). Buspirone induced similar suppression at a dose as low as 0.3mg/kg, which is far lower than the dose known to affect LID in non-grafted dyskinetic rats. In agreement with our previous results, the effect of buspirone was independent from 5-HT1A receptor activation, as it was not counteracted by the selective 5-HT1A antagonist WAY100635, but likely due to D2 receptor blockade. Most interestingly, the same doses of eticlopride, SCH23390 and buspirone were found to suppress LID in grafted but not in control dyskinetic rats. Taken together, these data demonstrate that the DA cell grafts strikingly exacerbate the effect of DA D1 and D2 receptor blockade against both GID and LID, and suggest that the anti-GID effect of buspirone seen in patients may also be due to blockade of DA D2 receptors.

A new controlled delivery system is developed for ropinirole (RP) for the treatment of Parkinson´s disease (PD) consisting in PLGA microparticles (MPs) which exhibited in vitro constant release of RP (78.23 µg/day/10 mg MPs) for 19 days. The neuroprotective effects of RP released from MPs are evaluated in SKN-AS cells after exposure to rotenone (20 μM). Cell apoptosis was significantly reduced by RP (100-120 μM). Daily doses of rotenone (2 mg/kg) given i.p. to rats induced neuronal and behavioral changes similar to those of PD. After 15 days animals received RP in saline (1 mg/kg/day for 45 days) or as MPs at two dose levels (amount of MPs equivalent to 7.5 mg/kg or 15 mg/kg RP given on days 15 and 30). Brain immunochemistry Arcoxia Tablets (Nissl-staining, GFAP and TH immunohistochemistry) and behavioral testing (catalepsy, akinesia, rotarod and swim test) showed that animals receiving RP either in solution or encapsulated within MPs reverted PD symptoms with the best results obtained in animals receiving RP microspheres at the highest dose assayed, thereby confirming the potential therapeutic interest of the new RP delivery system.

These studies characterise the pharmacology of ropinirole, a selective D-2 agonist. High-affinity human caudate binding revealed a Ki for D2 receptors of 2.9 x 10(-8) M with no affinity for D1 at 10(-4) M in the rat. Ropinirole was weakly active at alpha 2-adrenoceptors and 5-HT2 receptors but inactive at 5-HT1, benzodiazepine and gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors or alpha 1 and beta-adrenoceptors. In rodents, ropinirole, like apomorphine, caused biphasic spontaneous locomotor activity and contralateral circling in 6-OHDA-lesioned mice with no tolerance to the latter after 14 days treatment. Amphetamine caused ipsilateral responses in the lesioned mice. Ropinirole did not cause marked stereotypies. In marmosets ropinirole (0.05-1.0 mg/kg SC or 0.1 mg/kg PO) reversed all motor and behavioural deficits induced by MPTP. This response started 10-20 minutes after dosing, and exceeded 2 hours. No tolerance was seen following chronic b.i.d. treatment. Similar results were obtained with 1-dopa plus benserazide; however, 1-dopa always caused emesis, whereas beneficial Ceftin Oral Suspension effects were shown with ropinirole in the absence of this side effect. These results support the continued clinical assessment of ropinirole for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.

A 54-year-old man with a left leg amputation 22 years ago developed Mobic Tab 15mg RLS, primarily at night, that met the International RLS Study Group's criteria for RLS. This RLS, however, involved both his real and phantom lower limbs. Movement and phantom movements, as well as treatment with dopamine agonists, relieved this symptom in both the real and amputated limbs. However, creating an image of the limb moving without "moving" the limb did not improve the uncomfortable sensations in either limb.

We measured the affinities of bromocriptine, pramipexole, pergolide and ropinirole at human recombinant dopamine D1, D2 and D3 receptors in binding and functional tests. All four compounds bound with high affinity at the dopamine D3 receptor; bromocriptine and pergolide also had high affinity for the dopamine D2 receptor, while only pergolide had significant, although moderate, affinity for the dopamine D1 receptor. Only pergolide had high potency and intrinsic activity at the dopamine D1 receptor for stimulating cyclic AMP accumulation. In addition, the potencies and efficacies of pergolide and bromocriptine, as well as that of dopamine, at the Epivir Drug Interactions dopamine D1 receptor were increased in the presence of forskolin, an adenylate cyclase activator. All four compounds were highly potent agonists at dopamine D2 and D3 receptors, as measured in a mitogenesis assay. Bromocriptine was ten times more potent and pramipexole and ropinirole ten times less potent at the dopamine D2 than at the dopamine D3 receptor, whereas pergolide was equipotent at the two receptors. These results suggest that the activity of recently developed antiparkinsonian drugs at either the dopamine D1 or the dopamine D3 and not only the dopamine D2 receptors should be taken into account in analyses of their mechanisms of action in therapeutics.
