28th January 2018 - New research


Rasagiline is a MAO inhibitor, sold as Azilect, which is used for the treatment of Parkinson's Disease. For more information go to Azilect  In the long term there has been found to be no advantage in starting the use of rasagiline early rather than delaying its use. After three years the Parkinson's Disease symptoms scores did not differ between those who started early and those who delayed its use. In both groups there was a worsening of their symptoms overall. Additionally, 43% of patients had onset of unsteady gait and balance impairment, 35% had fallen, 26% had freezing of gait, and 33% had cognitive decline.
