Parkinson's Late Motor Complications

  • Currently, the main way of Parkinson’s disease treatment is L-DOPA, which provides dopamine to the brain in order to overcome dopamine deficiency that occurs in Parkinson’s disease. In advanced stages of the disease, patients are affected with On-Off fluctuations (late motor complications), which can be overcome by a continuous delivery of L-DOPA.
  • To date, continuous delivery of L-DOPA is done by Duodopa, which is an invasive pump.
  • Lasting Effect has developed novel formulation intended for continues usage to enhance Dopamine release. The API is loaded into the tablet and released continuously in the oral cavity.
  • This drug combination is particularly suitable for buccal release as one component is well absorbed via the oral mucosa and the second component is well absorbed along the gastrointestinal tract.
  • The tablet with this drug combination can be used for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease side effects as well as for the treatment of Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
