Off • Failure of L Dopa doses • On Period • Off Dyskinesia • Off Dystonia.• Indiv. Doses to the effect short on – Higher dose of L-Dopa (Immen + CR)• To Prolong On and decrease off period Use Dopamine Agonists• DOPA agonist + L-Dopa “ Worsen Dyskinesia and Peak dose adverse eff. of L Dopa “Fools Admire but of men of sense approve”
  19. 19. TREMOR- Refract to L Dopa diff. to treat- Pramipexole / Ropinirole – High Doses can be tried- Surgery “ So cial I latio n is in itse lf a patho g e nic so Facto r fo r dise ase pro ductio n” - Dr. Else n B rg o
  20. 20. L-Dopa Dyskinesia • Presentation : On Period on Diphasic (DD) – Off Period, ON + OFF, ON + Diphasic, – DD – OFF, ON + OFF + DD • Type of Dyskinesias: – ON – Chorea, Blepharospasm – OFF – Dystonic Posturing – ON + OFF – Mobile Dystonia, Cranial, Cervical Dystonia – Diphasic OFF – RLMS – MMD, Myoclonus, Tics, “ M O pinio ns are fo unde d o n kno wle dg e but y mo difie d by e xpe rie nce ”

Incontinence• CONSTIPATION – Mild - Exercise/Fluid/Fiber/Fresh leaves/Stool softener – Bowel stimulant Bisacodyl; Senna casenca• IMPOTENCE – Devices and Drugs : SildenafilThe Truth is fe ar and immo rality are two o f the g re ate st inhibito rs o f Pe rfo rmance to o pro g re ss
  25. 25. ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION • Avoid Hypnotics and anti depress.; increase hypotension • Avoid Deprenyl – Worsen L Dopa Hypotension • Take Sometime to resolve • High Sodium diet; pressure stockings; • Fludrocortisone; MIDODRINE (Low 1997) Alpha Agonist Well Tolerated • NSAIDS; CLONIDINE;EDHEDRINE;DOMPERIDONE PROPANALOL “ M n o f Ge nius A e dmire d: M n o f We alth e nvie d: ewo me n o f po we r fe are d: B o nly wo me n o f characte r are truste d” ut -A- Friedman
  26. 26. COGNITIVE AND BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS • Fecal impaction – Worsens Behaviour • Hypersexual; Visu. Hallu; Paranoid Ideation; Reversal of sleep wake cycle decrease NREM - Dopa agonist • Confusion can be produced by digoxin; propanalol oxybutynin or Diphenhydramine • Haloper/Thioridazine - Paranoid ideation; or agitation clozapine is ideal (PSG – 1999) – Agranulocytosis • Risperidone / Olanzapine - Do not tolerate • Quetiapine – Promising “ Maintaining the rig ht attitude is e asie r than re g aining the rig ht me ntal attitude ”
  27. 27. SURGERY BILAT • Asymmetrical Tremor- Thalamus STIM ABLAT • Asym. Dyskinesia - GB(I) -Mood -Cognit -Behavior Changes • Both - STN (Bler 1999) IMPLANT OF EMBRY. DOPA TISSUE • Fahn 1995 - Benefits under 60 • (40 Pts) - No improv. in Dyskinesias/Motor Fluctuations -Improve in off symptoms • Genetically engineered cells. Pre clinical Develop“ Pe ace Rule s the day whe re re aso n Rule s the mind” - Co lling
  28. 28. ALTERNATE THERAPY • Vita/Herb/Massage/Acu Puncture • 40% • Younger age/Married • Higher Income. “ Characte r g e ts yo u o ut o f be d Co mmitme nt mo ve s yo u to actio nFaith, ho pe and Discipline fo llo w thro ug h to co mple tio n”
  29. 29. • RESEARCH • Trans Magnetic Stimulation • 10 Hz - Akinesia / Rigidity • 0.5 Hz - Post and Gait Distur. • GM1 Ganglioside • Transdermal Nicotine patch • Flumazenil • Lazabemide • Viagra • Trophic effect of L Dopa“ Give us the GRACE to acce pt with se re nity the thing s that canno t be chang e d; The COURAGE to chang e the thing s that sho uld be chang e d and; The WISDOM to kno w the diffe re nce ”
  30. 30. Deep Brain Stimulation(DBS) Exact mechanism of action not known High frequency stimulation is inhibitive Inhibition from stimulation of GABAergic neurons, Preferential excitation Absence of permanent lesionA woman’s desire for revenge outlasts all her other
  31. 31. Methods • Location of target - Micro Recording • Micro electrode placement • Setting electrical parameters Disadvantages • Expensive • Progressive tolerance phenomenon • Electrical problemsTruth comes out of error sooner than that of confusion
  32. 32. MethodsAdvantage• Complication of lesion production is absent• No risk of Neurological Deficit• Reversible morbidityTHALAMIC DBS• Essentially for Tremors. At twenty the will rules At thirty the intellect At forty the Judgment
  33. 33. MethodsSTN STIMULATION• For severe motor complication of Chronic L-dopa therapy• Severe immobility off motor periods• Painful dystonia, Dyskinesia• Improves Akinesia Tremor, Gait, and DystoniaOpinion is ultimately determined by the feelings and not by the intellect
  34. 34. DBS Conclusion Symptoms STN GPI VIM Tremor +++ ++ +++ Akinesia +++ + 0 Rigitidy +++ ++ + Gait +++ ++ 0 Dyskinesia Short +++ + Off Period Dystonia +++ ++ 0Experience can be defined as yesterday’s answer to today’s problems
  35. 35. Gene Therapy for PDStrategies for PD• DA replacement by delivering NT Synthesizing agent• Repair and Protection Strategy by Neuro tropic factor delivery• Other potential agents - intervention of Pathogenesis. Memory, Pity & Beauty are short lived in life, Tinged with emotions persist in life
  36. 36. Gene Therapy for PD • DA Replacement by delivering NT Synthesizing gene • Donor cell or genitically enginered cells as alternate to fetal cells • To provide L-dopa into brain by introducing Tyrosine Hydroxylase (TH) gene • Initial studies - Cell line Rat fibroblast, NIH 3 T3 cells, Endorcrine cell line, Primary cell, Neuro Precursor cellsBeing ignorant is not so much a shame as being unwilling to learn
  37. 37. Gene Therapy for PD• GTP Cyclo Hydrolas 1(GCH) - Co-factor for TH enzymes production• Decorboxylation by Aromatic L-amino acid decorboxylase (AAOC)Repair and Protection• Neurotropic factor - Big molecule, do not cross BBB• Gene therapy provides efficient delivery (BDNP) producing fibro blasts cells protects against neuro toxin Dual action of brain is reflected in the duality of god; Each is in-separable but has individual existence
  38. 38. Gene Therapy for PDOther Potential Targets• Mutation of α synnuclein intervene directly at the level of Pathogenesis, Forestall clinical manifestationFuture Issues1. Safety2. Gene expression Modulation3. Regulation of gene expressionGT Product efficient delivery of various genes and products into localized site Memory, the daughter of attention , is the teeming mother of knowledge
  39. 39. Gene Therapy for PDTropic Factors• To support survival of ND neurons or neuronal tissue• Glial cell line dervied neurotrophic factor(GDNF)• Neurtumin - Survival of Nigral Neurons• Persephin survival of TH Neurons• Changes delivery across BBB Nigro striatal neurons controls delivery of TF Take time to think; it is the source of power Take time to read; it is the foundation of wisdom Take time to work; it is the price of success
  40. 40. Analytic Neurology – Examining theEvidence of Clinical Practice – M. Benatar Koller W C – Parkinson’s Disease prevalence risk is increased in Essential Tremor – 6.1% Selegiline – Limited symptomatic antiparkinsonian effect Deprenyl and Tocopherol – No neuroprotective effect L-Dopa therapy and emergence of motor fluctuations – Largely retrospective, limited quality and contradictory. Success in life is a matter not so much of talent and opportunity as of concentration and perseverance - C.W. Wendte
  41. 41. Analytic Neurology – Examining theEvidence of Clinical Practice – M. Benatar  Early use of Dopamine agonist in the treatment of PD is not proven  Amantidine reduces the severity of motor fluctuations and peak dose dyskinesias.  COMT inhibitors – The role is definite in stable and advanced PD and varying of motor fluctuations  Tolcapone is more effective than Entacapone, but has more hepatic toxicity Mind is the great level of all things; Human thought is the process by which, Human ends are ultimately answered
