Reduction of circulating 3-O-methyldopa by inhibition of catechol-O-methyltransferase with OR-611 and OR-462 in cynomolgus monkeys: implications for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.

We studied the effectiveness of OR-611 and OR-462, two novel inhibitors of the enzyme catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT), on 3-O-methyldopa (OMD) formation in cynomolgus monkeys following intravenous levodopa administration. OR-611 dose-dependently reduced the area under the OMD concentration-vs-time curve, reduced maximum plasma OMD concentrations, delayed the time to peak OMD levels, reduced systemic levodopa clearance, and prolonged the elimination half-life of levodopa. Similar effects on peripheral levodopa metabolism were seen with doses of 15 mg/kg of OR-611 and OR-462, its sister compound, which lacks the ability to penetrate the central nervous system (CNS).[1]
