Cerebrospinal fluid amino compounds in Parkinson's disease. Alterations due to carbidopa/levodopa.


Employing a triple-column ion-exchange/fluorometric procedure, 29 amino compounds, including amino acid neurotransmitters, were measured in lumbar cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from two groups of patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease de novo (n = 6) and those who were treated with carbidopa/levodopa (n = 6), and from neurologically normal controls (n… (More)
