Dopamine agonists (DAs) are a first-line therapy for moderate-to-severe restless legs syndrome (RLS), but these treatments may lead to complications, such as augmentation and impulse control disorders, requiring switching to another therapeutic class. Here we assess efficacy and tolerability of gabapentin enacarbil (GEn) in adults with moderate-to-severe primary RLS, with or without prior DA exposure.

Warfarin is an oral anticoagulant whose narrow therapeutic index and potential for drug interaction is well documented. It is always possible that a change in blood coagulability can occur without an obvious contributable cause; however, an acute change in a previously stable INR with the addition of other medications always raises questions as to the possible mechanism of adverse reaction. No previously documented interaction of this precise nature has been identified.

Long-term levodopa therapy for Parkinson's disease is complicated by the development of motor fluctuations and abnormal involuntary movements. One approach is to add a dopamine agonist at this stage of the disease to reduce the time the patient spends immobile or off and to reduce the dose of levodopa in the hope of reducing such problems in the future.

To evaluate the effects of the dopamine D2-D3 agonist ropinirole in patients who developed apathy after complete withdrawal from dopaminergic medication following successful subthalamic nucleus (STN) stimulation for advanced Parkinson disease (PD). We assessed apathy (Apathy Scale, Apathy Inventory), mood (Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale), cognitive functions (Mattis Dementia rating scale, frontal score, executive tests) and motor state (UPDRS-III) in 8 PD patients treated with STN stimulation without dopaminergic treatment and who became apathetic. Assessments were made at baseline and after 6 weeks of ropinirole treatment (7.2 +/- 5.9 mg/d; range 1-18 mg/d). Apathy improved with ropinirole in all but 1 patient (54 +/- 24%; range 0-78%). Mood also improved (75 +/- 31%; range 0-100%), but not in correlation with the change in apathy. Cognitive performance was not modified. Stimulation contacts were located within the STN in all patients except the one who remained apathetic in spite of ropinirole treatment (zona incerta). We suggest that apathy, which was compensated for by an enhancement of D2-D3 receptor stimulation in PD patients with STN stimulation: (1) depends on a dopaminergic deficit in associativo-limbic areas of the brain and (2) can be avoided if a dopaminergic agonist is administered postoperatively.

Stability-indicating high-performance thin-layer chromatographic (HPTLC) method for the analysis of ropinirole HCl was developed and validated as per the ICH guidelines. The method employed the mobile phase and toluene-ethyl acetate-6 M ammonia solution (5:6:0.5, v/v/v) was optimized with the help of a design expert. Densitometric analysis of ropinirole HCl was carried out in the absorbance mode at 250 and 254 nm. Compact spots for ropinirole HCl were found at R f value of 0.58 ± 0.02. The linear regression analysis data for the calibration plots showed R (2) = 0.9989 ± 0.0053 with a concentration range of 100-3000 ng spot(-1). The method was validated for precision, accuracy, ruggedness, robustness, specificity, recovery, limit of detection (LOD) and limit of quantitation (LOQ). The LOD and LOQ were 12.95 and 39.25 ng spot(-1) respectively. Drug was subjected to acidic, alkaline, oxidative, dry heat, wet heat and photo degradation stress. All the peaks of degradation products were well resolved from the standard drug peak with significant difference of R f. The acidic and alkaline stress degradation kinetics of ropinirole, were found to be in first order, showing high stability (t 1/2, 146.37 h(-1); t 0.9, 39.11 h(-1)) in the acidic medium and low stability (t 1/2, 97.67 h(-1); t 0.9, 14.87 h(-1)) in the alkaline environment.

A number of small clinical studies of short duration have examined the use of pramipexole and ropinirole in the treatment of RLS. Patients treated with either agent demonstrated marked improvement in RLS symptoms with minimal adverse effects. Recent postmarketing surveillance of the use of these drugs for Parkinson's disease reported problems with daytime somnolence; thus, patients should be counseled appropriately.

Several cases of syndrome of inappropriate antidiuresis induced by anti-Parkinson agents have been reported. Our previous study demonstrated that pergolide and pramipexole stimulated elevation of plasma arginine vasopressin (AVP) levels in some patients with Parkinson's disease (PD), but that levodopa/carbidopa (300/30 mg/day) did not affect plasma AVP levels in treatment-naïve PD patients. On the basis of the binding profile of ropinirole to monoamine receptors, we hypothesized that ropinirole does not stimulate AVP secretion. The aim of this study was to test this hypothesis.
Four dopamine receptor agonists used for the treatment of Parkinson's disease (apomorphine, pergolide, ropinirole and sumanirole) were evaluated for the ability to block human ether-a-go-go related gene (hERG) K(+) channels and to modify the duration of canine Purkinje fiber action potentials. Apomorphine, pergolide and ropinirole blocked the hERG-mediated currents with IC(50) values of 2.4, 0.12 and 1.2 microM, respectively. When evaluated in an action potential duration assay, pergolide significantly shortened action potential duration at 90% repolarization (APD(90)) whereas apomorphine and ropinirole significantly prolonged repolarization. Sumanirole only partially blocked hERG K(+) channels at the highest tested concentration (10 microM) and did not modify action potential duration over the tested concentration range (0.65-65 microM). Taken together, these data provide evidence that dopamine receptor agonists developed for the treatment of Parkinson's disease differentially influence hERG K(+) channel function and cardiac action potential duration.

This study was an open-label crossover study. We enrolled Parkinson's disease patients on dopamine agonist therapy with unsatisfactory control such as motor fluctuation, dyskinesia and sleep-related problems. Agonists were switched into equivalent dose of RPR. Subjects were consecutively enrolled into either once-daily first or twice-daily first groups, and received the same amount of RPR in a single and two divided dosing for 8 weeks respectively in a crossover manner without a washout period.The primary outcome was a questionnaire of the preference completed by patients in the last visit. The secondary outcome measures included the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale part 3 (mUPDRS), Hoehn and Yahr stage (H&Y); sleep questionnaire including overall quality of sleep, nocturnal off symptoms and early morning symptoms; Epworth Sleep Scale (ESS); compliances and patient global impression (PGI).

PubMed and Cochrane Controlled Trials Register were searched for English-language RCTs that assessed the effects of DAs in RLS. Quality of reporting was measured using the proportion of 17 CONSORT checklist items included in each study. The 2 primary outcomes were pooled mean change from baseline in International RLS (IRLS) Study Group rating scale score (Deltamu) (95% CI) and relative risk (RR) (95% CI) of response based on the Clinical Global Impression-Improvement (CGI-I) scale score. The pooled proportions of adverse events (PAEs) (95% CI) were also estimated.
Four hundred and twenty-five cases were included [mean age 68.3 years (range 37-90), mean duration of disease 7.5 years (range 0-37)]. ICD frequencies (as assessed by clinical interview) were significantly lower with RTG (4.9%; P < 0.05) compared with any other assessed DAs except for prolonged release PPX (PPX-PR). The rate of ICDs for PPX-PR (6.6%) was significantly lower than for immediate release PPX (PPX-IR) (19.0%; P < 0.05). Discontinuation rates of DA therapy due to ICDs were low.

1. The aim of the present study was to characterize functional responses to ropinirole, its major metabolites in man (SKF-104557 (4-[2-(propylamino)ethyl]-2-(3H) indolone), SKF-97930 (4-carboxy-2-(3H) indolone)) and other dopamine receptor agonists at human dopamine D2(long) (hD2), D3 (hD3) and D4.4 (hD4) receptors separately expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells using microphysiometry. 2. All the receptor agonists tested (ropinirole, SKF-104557, SKF-97930, bromocriptine, lisuride, pergolide, pramipexole, talipexole, dopamine) increased extracellular acidification rate in Chinese hamster ovary clones expressing the human D2, D3 or D4 receptor. The pEC50s of ropinirole at hD2, hD3 and hD4 receptors were 7.4, 8.4 and 6.8, respectively. Ropinirole is therefore at least 10 fold selective for the human dopamine D3 receptor over the other D2 receptor family members. 3. At the hD2 and hD3 dopamine receptors all the compounds tested were full agonists as compared to quinpirole. Talipexole and the ropinirole metabolite, SKF-104557, were partial agonists at the hD4 receptor. 4. Bromocriptine and lisuride had a slow onset of agonist action which precluded determination of EC50s. 5. The rank order of agonist potencies was dissimilar to the rank order of radioligand binding affinities at each of the dopamine receptor subtypes. Functional selectivities of the dopamine receptor agonists, as measured in the microphysiometer, were less than radioligand binding selectivities. 6. The results show that ropinirole is a full agonist at human D2, D3 and D4 dopamine receptors. SKF-104557 the major human metabolite of ropinirole, had similar radioligand binding affinities to, but lower functional potencies than, the parent compound.

The dopamine precursor, L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA), remains the most common treatment for Parkinson's disease. However, following long-term treatment, disabling side effects, particularly L-DOPA-induced dyskinesias, are encountered. Conversely, D2/D3 dopamine receptor agonists, such as ropinirole, exert an anti-parkinsonian effect while eliciting less dyskinesia when administered de novo in Parkinson's disease patients. Parkinson's disease and L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia are both associated with changes in mRNA and peptide levels of the opioid peptide precursors preproenkephalin-A (PPE-A) and preproenkephalin-B (PPE-B). Furthermore, a potential role of abnormal opioid peptide transmission in dyskinesia is suggested due to the ability of opioid receptor antagonists to reduce the L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia in animal models of Parkinson's disease. In this study, the behavioural response, striatal topography and levels of expression of the opioid peptide precursors PPE-A and PPE-B were assessed, following repeated vehicle, ropinirole, or L-DOPA administration in the 6-OHDA-lesioned rat model of Parkinson's disease. While repeated administration of L-DOPA significantly elevated PPE-B mRNA levels (313% cf. vehicle, 6-OHDA-lesioned rostral striatum; 189% cf. vehicle, 6-OHDA-lesioned caudal striatum) in the unilaterally 6-OHDA-lesioned rat model of Parkinson's disease, ropinirole did not. These data and previous studies suggest the involvement of enhanced opioid transmission in L-DOPA-induced dyskinesia and that part of the reason why D2/D3 dopamine receptor agonists have a reduced propensity to elicit dyskinesia may reside in their reduced ability to elevate opioid transmission.

We performed a prospective cross-sectional study of 515 non-demented PD patients receiving treatment with pramipexole [n = 250, monotherapy or with levodopa (L-dopa)], ropinirole (n = 150, monotherapy or with L-dopa), or L-dopa (n = 115, monotherapy); all formulations were immediate release. Neuropsychiatric disturbances were assessed through the Neuropsychiatric Inventory (NPI). Groups were matched in terms of age, education, sex, disease severity (Hoehn and Yahr), disease duration, executive function, total L-dopa daily equivalent dose, and concomitant psychotropic medications (antidepressants, anxiolytics and antipsychotic agents).

The first effective drugs for Parkinson's disease (PD) were anticholinergics, introduced at the end of 19.th century by Charcot. Since the introduction of levodopa in the sixties of the previous century, many new drugs have emerged for the treatment of Parkinson's disease: dopamine agonists (ergot as well as non-ergot, bromocriptine, pergolide, mirapexine, ropinirole), MAO B inhibitors (selegiline, rasagiline), amantadine, COMT inhibitors (entacapone, tolcapone). In all stages of the disease, levodopa remains the most effective drug for improving motor symptoms in PD. However, long term treatment with levodopa is accompanied by the development of motor fluctuations, dyskinesia, cognitive and neuropsychiatric adverse effects and increasingly diverse spectrum of drugs is needed to alleviate motor and nonmotor symptoms. Some of these drugs have caused considerable concern and controversies and were regarded at certain points as the 'bad guys' of Parkinson's disease pharmacological armamentarium. In the article, a short review of 'bad guys' including anticholinergics, selegiline, tolcapone and dopamine agonists, is given.

This work explores the possibility of achieving therapeutic levels of the anti-Parkinsonian drug, ropinirole hydrochloride (RHCl), by transdermal iontophoretic delivery. An in vivo study was performed in hairless rats during which RH(+) was delivered at one current intensity (0.58 mA identical with 0.12 mA/cm(2)) and at three different drug concentrations (25, 125, and 250 mM). In vivo RH(+) flux and transport number were deduced from the steady-state plasma concentration values. Plasma concentration profiles and RH(+) transport numbers were independent of the drug donor concentration. The average iontophoretic input rate was about 3 micromol/h. Postiontophoresis transepidermal water loss (TEWL) was monitored and biopsies were histologically examined to identify any effects of iontophoresis on the skin. TEWL was elevated only at the anodal sites. TEWL recovery was faster for the "no-drug" control anodal sites, which suggests a combined effect of the drug and current on the skin. In conclusion, (1). the in vivo iontophoretic transport of RH(+) is independent of the drug donor concentration, and (2). iontophoresis can deliver therapeutic amounts of RH(+).
