MDS 2023 | Emerging levodopa-based treatment strategies for PD: SC delivery

Dag Nyholm, MD, PhD, Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, discusses the exciting advancements in levodopa-based treatment strategies for Parkinson’s disease (PD) currently in development. Subcutaneous (SC) delivery of levodopa shows great potential, and the first therapy is expected to be marketed soon. Still, its effectiveness compared to current treatments such as intestinal or jejunal infusions remains unknown. This interview took place at the 2023 International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in Copenhagen, Denmark.
