Monoamine-oxidase B (MAO-B) has been reported to be implicated in both MPTP-induced parkinsonism and Parkinson's disease, since selegiline (L-deprenyl), an irreversible MAO-B inhibitor, prevents MPTP-induced neurotoxicity(More)
The stereospecific form of the known acetylenic mechanism-based MAO-inhibitor AGN1135 (Rasagiline, TVP-1012) is devoid of sympathomimetic amphetamine-like properties. To evaluate the efficiency and selectivity of subcutaneous injections of TVP-1012 (dose range from 0.01 up to 10 mg/kg for 7 days) the activities of monoamine oxidases A and B (MAO-A,-B) were(More)
