  4. 4. Automating levodopa dosing schedules for Parkinson’s disease

    University dissertation from Borlänge : Dalarna University

    Author : Ilias Thomas; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Parkinson’s disease; levodopa; symptom assessment; symptom management; dosing algorithms; wearable sensors; microtablets; continuous infusion; FLOAT - Flexibel levodopa-optimerings och individanpassningsteknik; FLOAT - Flexible Levodopa Optimizing Assistive Technology;

    Abstract : Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease. Levodopa is mainly used to manage the motor symptoms of PD. However, disease progression and long-term use of levodopa cause reduced medication efficacy and side effects. When that happens, precise individualized dosing schedules are required. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of Graft Effects and Function in Cell Replacement Therapy for Parkinson's Disease

    University dissertation from Peter Hagell, Restorative Neurology, Wallenberg Neuroscience Center, BMC A11, University Hospital, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Peter Hagell; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi; neuropsychology; Neurology; measurement; psychometrics; perceived health; dyskinesias; assessment; striatum; positron emission tomography; dopamine; Parkinson s disease; transplantation;

    Abstract : This explorative study aimed to apply, develop, and evaluate assessment methods at various levels in cell replacement therapy for Parkinson’s disease (PD). Observed motor effects in five grafted patients support that timed motor tasks and clinical ratings of parkinsonism are able to monitor motor function, but their psychometric properties need further attention.
