DUAL LAYER L-DOPA FOR PARKINSON'S DISEASE

Clinical Neuropharmacology [2009] 32 (4) : 189-192 (Hinson VK, Goetz CG, Leurgans S, Fan W, Nguyen T, Hsu A.) Complete abstract

IPX054, which is a form of L-dopa, in which there are two layers, has been shown to be slightly more effective than conventional forms of L-dopa, despite only having to be taken twice a day instead of throughout the day. L-dopa usually comes in two different formats : either the immediate release version, which satisfies the immediate need for L-dopa, or the controlled release version, which avoids the excessive effects of L-dopa by spreading out the effect over time. IPX054 combines the two types of L-dopa, immediate release and controlled release, in one tablet, in two different layers, aiming to provide the benefits of both formats. In clinical practice, this ease of administration may offer improved treatment compliance and effectiveness. For more current news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
