Neupro® (Rotigotine) Provided Clinically Relevant Improvements in Health-Related Quality of Life for People with Parkinson's Disease
Date:9/30/2010

line recording, the study compared the effects of rotigotine administered as a slow-release formulation of 0.5 or 5 mg/kg every second day for 6 days and L-DOPA/benserazide administered daily at 10/7.5 mg/kg s.c., for 6 days in 6-OHDA lesioned rats.

Latency to slow wave sleep (SWS) and paradoxical sleep (REM) onset, duration of waking, SWS and REM sleep and the alpha and delta frequency ratio during SWS were analyzed off-line. No effects were seen with low dose rotigotine or with a placebo vehicle. Pulsatile L-DOPA and continuous rotigotine at 5 mg/kg caused an increase in active waking and a decrease in SWS duration. While L-DOPA had no effect on the alpha/delta power ratio, the high dose of continuous rotigotine decreased the alpha/delta ratio towards an increase in delta power during SWS.
