sopranuclear progressive palsy

D V Moretti, G Binetti, O Zanetti, G B Frisoni
Rotigotine (RTG) is a non-ergot dopamine agonist developed as a new transdermal formulation, indicated for use in early and advanced Parkinson's disease (PD). The potential advantages of the RTG patch include immediacy of effect onset, constant drug delivery, better tolerability avoiding drug peaks and easy of use, helping patient's compliance.

Abnormalities can be identified early in the disease process and used to monitor progression as well as the effect of treatment. Studies of dopamine receptors and brain metabolism can help identify those patients who have other Parkinsonian syndromes, such as multiple system atrophy, progressive sopranuclear palsy or diffuse Lewy body dementia...
