Introduction Apomorphine (lO,ll-dihydroxyaporphine), an aporphine alkaloid, was first synthesized by the rearrangement of morphine in the presence of concentrated hydrochloric acid. Soon after its discovery, it was used by veterinary scientists as an effective therapy for behavioural vices in domesticated animals. It was then employed at different times in clinical medicine as an emetic, an expectorant, a sedative, an aphrodisiac, an anti-psychotic, an anticonvulsant and in the management of narcotic and alcoholic dependence 48 M.

1996). In vivo, pergolide is the only dopamine agonist, to our best knowledge, that has been 38 O. , 1992). All these indirect experimental arguments keep the hypothesis of a neuroprotective role for dopamine agonists, going on. There is the hope that these drugs might then slow down the disease's progression. However, up to now, none of the available dopamine agonist has ever proved that such exiting, but purely speculative, effects have true clinical correlates. Clinical trials using clinical and neuroimaging out-comes are presently ongoing with pergolide, pramipexole and ropinirole to test this hypothesis.

The results show that the development of motor complications was significantly less frequent in patients treated with cabergoline than in levodopa recipients (22 % vs. 34 %) and that the relative risk of developing motor complication during treatment with cabergoline was more than 50% lower than with levodopa.
