      Dear all,

      The first line of therapy for PD is levodopa/carbidopa. I would like to know if apomorphine subcutaneous infusion (ApoGo pump) can be used as a stand alone treatment option for severe PD patients or it is also prescribed with levodopa/carbidopa medication.

      regards

      Abhishek

      Hi Abishek, I have not heard of Apomorphine injection.  Thank you for creating this topic.  Perhaps there are others on this forum who can share their knowledge/expericences.

      Thanks for posting, Abhishek, I’m not familiar with this topic at all but eager to learn more. Is this a therapy you are considering for yourself?

      Hi Jean/Ally, I am not considering it for myself. I am a researcher working to improve the quality of life of Parkinson’s disease patient. Apomorphine is given by subcutaneous injection to manage “off” episodes occurred during levodopa/carbidopa therapy. It is currently approved in Europe (ApoGo pen and ApoGo patch pump) and in US (Apokyn)

      Hi Abhishek,  While I am happy to hear that people are working to alleviate our symptoms, I am saddened that we still have no cure or any way to stop the progression of this disease.  Thank you for your  research work.
