Many patients never get the chance to experience the benefits of apomorphine due to a lack of information about the treatment. This textbook gives a compact and comprehensive overview of origin, chemistry, pharmacokinetics, clinical use and future role of apomorphine in Parkinson's disease. The authors, who are internationally renowned authorities in the field of Parkinson's disease, provide up-to-date reviews of the role of continuous and intermittent apomorphine infusion, its indications and side effects. The efficacy of apomorphine is also compared to the results achieved by deep brain stereotactic surgery and new application forms (e.g., intranasal, inhalative) are introduced. This book is an essential read and represents a practical guideline for all who deal with people with Parkinson's disease.
