Abstract

Motor fluctuations and dyskinesia are common complications of long-term levodopa therapy. The neural and molecular mechanisms underlying their development are partially understood. A variety of clinical strategies may reduce the unpredictability of motor fluctuations and reduce their impact. Prevention of these complications remains an elusive goal.
