More than 50 years have passed since the use of L-dopa in the palliative treatment of Parkinson's Disease, and it remains as the most common treatment despite the fact that after 4-6 years it induces severe side effects such as dyskinesia. Numerous preclinical investigations based on endogenous neurotoxin models have promised various therapies in Parkinson's disease, but efforts have failed at the time of transferring these successful results to preclinical studies. Although there are several publications that warn of these failures, the scientific community remains mostly unaware, and there is a need to focus their efforts on potential therapeutics that can slow the development of the disease.

Translation of Preclinical Models to Clinical Studies and Therapies in Parkinson's Disease: Translations from Preclinical Models analyses why preclinical models based on exogenous neurotoxins have failed. To develop new pharmacological treatments for Parkinson´s Disease, the book discusses a more physiological model directly related to metabolism of dopaminergic neurons that are lost before and after the onset of the disease. This book also reviews genetic preclinical models based on genetic mutations associated with the familial form of the disease and preclinical models based on endogenous neurotoxins.
