Extended Use of MAO-B Inhibitors Slows Decline in Parkinson’s Disease Patients
There has long been interest in whether monoamine oxidase type B (MAO-B) inhibitors slow progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and improve long-term outcomes. They have shown neuroprotective effects in cell culture and animal studies of PD, but clinical trial results have been mixed and have failed to convincingly demonstrate disease modifying effects in people with PD. In a retrospective analysis by Hauser et al. in the Journal of Parkinson’s Disease, researchers looked at the results from a large study and found that participants who received an MAO-B inhibitor for a longer period of time experienced slower clinical decline.
