BACKGROUND Gene transfer of glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and other methods that modulate production of GABA in the subthalamic nucleus improve basal ganglia function in parkinsonism in animal models. We aimed to assess the effect of bilateral delivery of AAV2-GAD in the subthalamic nucleus compared with sham surgery in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease. METHODS Patients aged 30-75 years who had progressive levodopa-responsive Parkinson's disease and an overnight off-medication… Expand
