Parkinson's disease: a comparison of mesulergine and bromocriptine.

Previous studies with mesulergine (CU 32-085) demonstrated safety and efficacy in short-term observations of patients with Parkinson's disease. We compared mesulergine with bromocriptine in 20 patients with Parkinson's disease. Eighteen patients completed the randomized, double-blind, crossover study. Clinical assessments employed the UBC scale and "Mini-Mental State" examination; neurophysiologic measurements were undertaken on wrist rigidity and speed and accuracy of hand movement, and toxicity screening tests were compared. There were no significant differences between the effects of mesulergine (mean dosage, 27.4 mg/d) and bromocriptine (mean dosage, 40.8 mg/d).[1]
