A retrospective drug utilization evaluation was conducted in patients who received levodopa or dopamine agonist for RLS from July 1, 2006, to July 31, 2007. Patients' medical records were reviewed and data were collected on demographics; comorbidities; laboratory values; doses of levodopa or dopamine agonists; prescribing physician's specialty; and use of alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine.

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a common condition characterized by dysesthesia and an urge to move. Predominantly, symptoms occur at rest in the evening or at night, and they are alleviated by moving the affected extremity or by walking. Although the etiopathogenesis of RLS is still unknown, the rapid and dramatic improvement of RLS with dopaminergic agents suggests that dopaminergic system dysfunction may be a basic mechanism. Dopaminergic agents are the best-studied agents, and are considered first-line treatment of RLS.

At Week 24 LOCF, PR significantly increased the proportion of patients maintaining ≥ 20% reduction in "off" time versus IR (adjusted odds ratio: 1.82; 95% CI: 1.16, 2.86; P = 0.009). Mean (SD) doses at Week 24 LOCF were: PR, 18.6 (6.5) mg/d; IR, 10.4 (6.4) mg/d; mean (SD) reductions from baseline in levodopa (L-dopa) dose were -162 (226) mg and -113 (138) mg, respectively. Adverse events (AEs) were reported by 72% of patients in the PR group and 61% in the IR group; 12% and 9% of patients, respectively, withdrew from the study due to an AE, and 6% and 5%, respectively, reported serious AEs.

Positron-emission tomography (PET) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) tracers have been developed which may be considered surrogate markers for remaining dopaminergic neurons. In a randomised controlled trial in patients with early Parkinson's disease, the Parkinson Study Group used 123I-beta-CIT SPECT (JAMA 2002; 287: 1653-61). Those patients given pramipexole had significantly reduced loss of striatal uptake at 46 months compared with those given levodopa (16.0% vs 25.5%). In a similar trial, Alan Whone and colleagues used 18F-DOPA PET (Neurology 2002; 58 [suppl 3]: A82-83). Patients given ropinirole had significantly reduced loss of striatal uptake at 24 months compared with those given levodopa (13% vs 20%). These studies suggest that agonist monotherapy may be neuroprotective and/or that levodopa is toxic. This work has been criticised as the SPECT results may have resulted from a differential effect of the agonist and levodopa on the regulation of the dopamine transporter, thereby influencing the imaging outcome measure. Other criticisms include insufficient data on the use of the potential neuroprotectant selegiline and patients on pramipexole in the SPECT study appear to have been clinically slow progressors. Single clinical trials with each of the four modern agonists compared with levodopa show that as monotherapy the agonists delay the onset of involuntary movements, although at the expense of poorer treatment of motor impairments and disability and more dopaminergic adverse events. The only health-related quality of life data show no difference between pramipexole and levodopa after 4 years. No information on health-economics measures is available but agonists cost two to three times as much as levodopa. WHERE NEXT? Young patients should be treated with agonist monotherapy since the trials included predominantly younger patients who have a higher incidence of motor complications. Those with significant co-morbidity, dementia, or a short life-expectancy should be treated with the lowest dose of levodopa required to maintain motor function. For the vast majority though, no clear guidance can be given. Further large-scale pragmatic trials in large numbers of patients over prolonged periods are urgently required.
S32504 displayed dose-dependent and stereospecific substitution in comparison to its less active racemic form, (+/-) S31411, and to its inactive (-) distomer, S32601. Apomorphine, and the selective D(3)/D(2) receptor agonists, ropinirole, PD128,907, 7-OH-DPAT and CGS15855A, fully (=80%) substituted for S32504, whereas D(4) and D(1)/D(5) receptor agonists were ineffective. The selective D(3) vs D(2) receptor partial agonist, BP897, did not substitute for S32504 and the selective D(3) receptor antagonists, S33084, SB277,011, GR218,231, PNU99194A and S14297, did not block its DS properties. By contrast, S32504 lever selection was blocked by the preferential D(2) vs D(3) receptor antagonists, L741,626 and S23199, and by the D(2)/D(3) antagonists, raclopride and haloperidol. The D(2)/D(3) receptor partial agonists and antipsychotics, aripiprazole, bifeprunox, N-desmethylclozapine and preclamol did not substitute for S32504: indeed, they dose-dependently attenuated its DS properties.

To determine whether clinical response to the dopamine agonist, ropinirole, in the treatment of primary restless legs syndrome (RLS), depends upon the age-at-onset of RLS symptoms.
A Markov model was developed using clinical trial data for pramipexole and ropinirole. Model health states were based on the International RLS Study Group Rating Scale (IRLS) scores. Health states were: no (IRLS 0), mild (IRLS 1-14), moderate (IRLS 15-24), severe (IRLS 25-34), very severe RLS (IRLS 35-40) and death. Patients entered the model with an IRLS score > 15 matching the trial inclusion criteria of the pramipexole trials. Resource use and utilities were based on trial data, literature, a patient survey and a panel of physicians from the UK and Sweden in the absence of published information. A healthcare sector perspective was taken for the UK and a societal perspective for Sweden using 2004-2005 unit costs. The base case analysis took a 1-year timeframe.

Overall, 251 (81.0%) patients completed the study. The mean ropinirole dose at study end was 1.90 mg/day. A total of 282 patients (91.3%) reported > or = 1 adverse event. For the majority of patients, the reported adverse events were mild or moderate in intensity. The most common adverse event was nausea. Adverse events led to discontinuation in 8.7% of patients. At week 52, IRLS scores improved by an average of 12.0 points from baseline, and 82.8% of patients were 'much improved' or 'very much improved' on the CGI-improvement scale. Ropinirole treatment was also associated with improvements in measures of sleep and quality of life.

It is a common belief that individual variation in response to treatment is an important explanation for the variation in observed outcomes in clinical trials. If such variation is large, it seems reasonable to suppose that progress in treating disease will be advanced by classifying patients according to their abilities or not to 'respond' to particular treatments. We consider that there is currently a lost opportunity in drug development. There is a great deal of talk about individual response to treatment and tailor-made drugs. However, relatively little work is being done to formally investigate, using suitable designs, where individual response to treatment may be important. Through a case study from a replicate cross-over study we show how, given suitable replication, it is possible to isolate the component of variation corresponding to patient-by-treatment interaction and hence investigate the possibility of individual response to treatment.
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.

After repeated oral administration of prolonged-release tablets of ropinirole hydrochloride in Japanese patients with PD, ropinirole, SK&F104557 and low levels of SK&F89124 were detected in plasma. The trough concentrations of ropinirole and the two metabolites increased in proportion to the dose when ropinirole hydrochloride prolonged-release tablets were administered at doses ranging from 2 to 16 mg/day. The plasma exposure to ropinirole and its two metabolites after intake of normal diet was comparable to that in the fasting state. The most common adverse events (10% or more) were somnolence, nausea, constipation, hallucination and nasopharyngitis. Most adverse events were mild or moderate in severity, and with no death. During the treatment period, serious adverse events were reported in five patients. Efficacy analysis (LOCF) at the final endpoint up to week 16 demonstrated a mean (SD) change from baseline in the Japanese UPDRS III (motor) and II (ADL) scores of -11·3 (8·21) and -3·9 (3·22), respectively, and thereafter remained at similar levels until week 52.

We have previously reported that ropinirole, a non-ergot dopamine agonist, has neuroprotective effects against 6-hydroxydopamine in mice based on in vivo antioxidant properties such as the glutathione (GSH)-activating effect. In the present study, we determined that the effects of ropinirole on the level of expression of GSH-related enzyme mRNA, these enzymes were shown to regulate GSH contents in the brain. This study focused on the mechanism of GSH enhancement by ropinirole. Striatal GSH contents were significantly increased by 7-day daily administration of ropinirole. Furthermore, the expression levels of gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase (gamma-GCS), glutathione peroxidase (GPx), glutathione reductase (GR) and glutathione S-transferase (GST) mRNA increased following daily injections of ropinirole for 7 days. In addition, ropinirole treatment for 7 days suppressed auto-oxidation in mouse striatal homogenates, in contrast to the vehicle treatment. In conclusion, ropinirole was able to suppress auto-oxidation, most probably by increasing GSH levels due to an increase of GSH synthesis. In addition, it is likely that auto-oxidation was also suppressed by the activation of GSH-regulating enzymes such as GPx, GR, and GST in the mouse striatum. Thus, our results indicate that the GSH-activating effect of ropinirole may render this dopamine agonist beneficial as a neuroprotective drug.

A transdermal patch formulation of the non-ergolinic dopamine agonist rotigotine (Neupro) is indicated for use as monotherapy in the treatment of early-stage Parkinson's disease or, in the EU, as an adjunct to levodopa across all disease stages. Transdermal rotigotine is an effective and generally well tolerated addition to the armamentarium for the control of Parkinson's disease, with the once-daily transdermal patch system offering several practical advantages and the possible benefits of avoiding pulsatile dopaminergic stimulation. Transdermal rotigotine was superior to placebo in patients with early-stage and advanced Parkinson's disease, although noninferiority to the oral dopamine agonists ropinirole or pramipexole was not consistently demonstrated. Additional active comparator trials would be of interest. In the meantime, transdermal rotigotine offers a convenient new treatment option for patients with Parkinson's disease.

We contacted 929 patients with PD and administered a 45- to 60-minute interview addressing medication use, adverse events, and the patient's clinical status in the preceding 6 months. Their physicians completed record reviews detailing their clinical histories and drug regimens. The outcome of interest in this case-control study was an episode of somnolence that was uncontrollable, severe, and inappropriate, such as while driving or engaged in social activity. For multiple events, the first was chosen as the index event. For each case, we sampled control time from all respondents who had no event as of the index time for that case. Multiple logistic regression was used to adjust for potential confounders.

This study confirms that ropinirole improves RLS symptoms and subjective measures of sleep, quality of life, and anxiety and that it is generally well tolerated.
Continuous dopaminergic stimulation is a therapeutic concept for the management of Parkinson's disease (PD) that proposes that continuous, as opposed to discontinuous or pulsatile, stimulation of striatal dopamine receptors will delay or prevent the onset of levodopa-related motor complications. This hypothesis has arisen from studies of the normal basal ganglia demonstrating that nigral dopaminergic neurons normally fire continuously and striatal dopamine levels are relatively constant. In MPTP monkeys, pulsatile stimulation of striatal dopamine receptors with short-acting agents is associated with the induction of molecular and physiologic changes in basal ganglia neurons and the development of motor complications. These are avoided when dopaminergic therapies are delivered in a more continuous manner. Studies in animal models support this hypothesis, demonstrating that long-acting dopamine agonists are associated with a decreased risk of motor complications in comparison to short-acting formulations of levodopa. Similarly, continuous infusion of dopamine agonists ropinirole and rodigotine reduces dyskinesia associated with intermittent doses of oral formulations of the same drug. The current challenge is to develop a long-acting formulation of levodopa that simulates the pharmacokinetic pattern seen with infusions of levodopa in attempt to provide comparable benefits with an oral levodopa treatment strategy.
Two matching, placebo-controlled, multinational studies assessing the effectiveness and safety of ropinirole for treating moderate-to-severe Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) formed the basis of this psychometric assessment. Validity and reliability were assessed using baseline data. Responsiveness was determined using longitudinal data collected at baseline and 12 weeks.
