ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study regarding anticholinergics for symptomatic management of parkinson's disease (PD), published in the 2003 issue of the journal "Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews." For this study the researchers selected studies if they were randomized controlled trials that compared marketed anticholinergics with placebo or no treatment and measured relevant outcomes in patients with a clinical diagnosis of PD. Anticholinergics were all compared with placebo in a crossover design and included bornaprine, benzhexol, orphenadrine, benztropine, benapryzine and methixine.
