MDS 2022 | Subcutaneous levodopa/carbidopa infusion for Parkinson’s disease

Continuous dopaminergic therapies allow the control of motor and non-motor fluctuations characterized by the progression of Parkinson’s disease. Eric Freire-Alvarez, MD, University General Hospital of Elche, Elche, Spain, discusses the future of continuous subcutaneous levodopa/carbidopa infusion in the therapeutic armamentarium. Subcutaneous delivery is more convenient for patients than intestinal levodopa/carbidopa gel infusion or deep brain stimulation. Therefore, its availability would be a positive addition to Parkinson’s disease treatment options. This interview took place at the 2022 International Congress of Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders in Madrid, Spain.
