Evaluation and Analysis of Dyskinetic Behaviors: The rats were observed in their home-cage for one hour following the morning injections starting from the first day and every third day thence forth (1,4,7,...19) and their behaviors were videotaped for 2 minutes, 30 and 60 minutes after the injection and these recordings were analyzed and rated according to the below scale for rating L-dopa induced dyskinesia in rats (Table 1) (18).
Compared to the reference group there was a clear association between shoulder injury and an increased load of 20% in players with either reduced external rotation strength (hazard ratio [HR] 4.0; 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.1 to 15.2, p=.04) or scapular dyskinesia. (HR 4.8; 95% CI 1.4 to 12.8, p=.01) There was also a clear association between shoulder injury and load in groups that increased their loading by more than 60% (HR 1.91; 95% CI 1.0 to 3.70, p=.05).
"So it's very difficult for clinicians to know when dyskinesia is occurring.
The 3 h sum score of the AIM of each subtype and the total score of axial dystonia, limb dyskinesia, and orolingual dyskinesia (ALO AIM score) were analyzed.
Dopamine replacement therapy, currently the most efficacious and gold standard treatment for PD, mainly comprises the use of the dopamine precursor levodopa (L-DOPA), dopamine agonists, monoamine oxidase B inhibitors, and catechol-O-methyltransferase inhibitors.[sup][1] Long-term use of L-DOPA may result in several complications, including motor fluctuations and levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID), which cause serious distress to patients.
