Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The effectiveness of Bornaprine on parkinsonian tremor was evaluated in a single-blind study of mediumterm treatment. 25 patients were treated with rising doses of Bornaprine per os, one week at each dose-level. The dose at which Bornaprine was most effective was 8 mg daily and its action at this dose was mild but statistically significant. The drug was generally well tolerated in patients with idiopathic parkinsonism, but transient confusion developed in a few patients with secondary parkinsonism.
