    Auto-oxidation of levodopa generates toxic metabolites, such as free radicals, semiquinones and quinones. In vitro, levodopa is a powerful toxin that is lethal to cultures of neurones. This raises the concern that levodopa may also be toxic in vivo, and that chronic treatment with levodopa could...
