Nicotine and Parkinson's disease: Implications for therapy
TLDR
Observations suggest that nicotine or CNS selective nicotinic receptor ligands hold promise for Parkinson's disease therapy to reduce disease progression, improve symptoms, and/or decrease levodopa‐induced dyskinesias.
Can nicotine be used medicinally in Parkinson’s disease?
TLDR
Together, data suggest that nicotine or nicotinic receptor drugs have therapeutic potential for Parkinson’s disease, although the specific treatment regimens remain to be determined.
Nicotine from cigarette smoking and diet and Parkinson disease: a review
TLDR
As a small amount of nicotine can saturate a substantial portion of nicotine receptors in the brain, nicotine from other sources, such as diet, could be a promising therapeutic substance for protection against PD.
Nicotinic receptors as CNS targets for Parkinson's disease.
Neuropathology of cigarette smoking
TLDR
This work aims to summarize what is known about the neuropathology of cigarette smoking and, in particular, its implications for neurodegenerative diseases.

TLDR
Preclinical findings supporting the idea that nicotinic receptors are valuable therapeutic targets for PD are reviewed.
Nongenetic causes of Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Cigarette smoking, use of coffee/caffeine, and non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) all appear to lower risk of PD, while dietary lipid and milk consumption, high caloric intake, and head trauma may increase risk.

The effects of nicotine on Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Preliminary analysis shows improvements after acute nicotine in several areas of cognitive performance, particularly measures such as reaction time, central processing speed, and decreased tracking error, and improvements were seen in several motor measures suggesting improved extrapyramidal functioning.
Cigarette smoking and protection from Parkinson's disease
TLDR
A protective association of cigarette smoking for Parkinson's disease may constitute an important etiologic clue.
Smoking and Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The negative association between Parkinson's disease and smoking is confirmed and is independent of other associated factors, and the positive correlation of degenerative vascular disease with smoking is further evidence that arteriosclerosis is not involved in the causation of Parkinson's Disease.

TLDR
Preliminary data suggest that there may be inverse associations of smoking with uterine fibroids and endometriosis, and protective effects on hypertensive disorders and vomiting of pregnancy are likely, and evidence is growing that cigarette smoking and nicotine may prevent or ameliorate Parkinson's disease, and could do so in Alzheimer's dementia.
The environment and Parkinson's disease: is the nigrostriatal system preferentially targeted by neurotoxins?
TLDR
Similarities between clinical and experimental findings, such as the role of pesticide exposure as a potential environmental risk factor, highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to the aetiology of PD.
