Abstract
We wanted to investigate whether continuous intrajejunal levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) therapy has an antidyskinetic effect in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) and troublesome dyskinesias. We also sought to examine the effect of LCIG therapy on motor function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL).
