Understand why patients usually require higher and more frequent dosing of levodopa or the addition of other therapies such as COMT inhibitors as PD progresses.

Find out when levodopa therapy may be initiated and discover how catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors may be used in conjunction with levodopa to help control motor symptoms in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). In these interactive eLearning modules, the expert faculty address important questions in the field of PD research, providing insight into the steps that can be taken to optimise patient outcomes.

Understand why patients usually require higher and more frequent dosing of levodopa, or the addition of other therapies such as COMT inhibitors, as PD progresses.
