Rivastigmine for mild cognitive impairment in Parkinson disease: a placebo-controlled study
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in Parkinson’s disease (PD) may be associated with subtle functional impairment and worse quality of life. The objective of this study was to determine the efficacy and tolerability of rivastigmine for PD-MCI. Patients with PD-MCI (n = 28) were enrolled in a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover, single-site study of the rivastigmine transdermal […]
Donepezil in Parkinson’s disease dementia: a randomized, double-blind efficacy and safety study
Parkinson’s disease dementia (PDD) is associated with cholinergic deficits. This report presents an efficacy and safety study of the acetylcholinesterase inhibitor donepezil hydrochloride in PDD. PDD patients (n = 550) were randomized to donepezil (5 or 10 mg) or placebo for 24 weeks. Coprimary end points were the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) and […]
Efficacy of rivastigmine on executive function in patients with Parkinson’s disease dementia
Background and Objective: Rivastigmine is approved in the USA for the treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease dementia (PDD). Executive function (EF) deficits are a core symptom of PDD. The current objective was to investigate the effects of rivastigmine capsules versus placebo on EF in PDD, focusing on secondary outcome measures […]
Continuous dopaminergic stimulation by Duodopa in advanced Parkinson’s disease: Efficacy and safety
Introduction: When advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients experience motor complications (fluctuations and dyskinesias) despite standard oral treatment, two treatment options are available: deep brain stimulation and subcutaneous apomorphine infusion with respects of indications for each strategy. Continuous intraduodenal infusion of levodopa (Duodopa) via a gastrojejunal tube may be proposed at this stage of the disease […]
