    Although orally administered levodopa is the mainstay treatment for Parkinson's disease, its use is often complicated by a fluctuating response. This may be improved by strategies that provide more constant dopaminergic stimulation. Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) catalyses the O-methylation...
