Speech therapy for Parkinson's disease

, : Speech therapy for Parkinson's disease. Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry 46(2): 140-144

Twenty-six patients with the speech disorder of Parkinson's disease received daily speech therapy (prosodic exercises) at home for 2 to 3 weeks. There were significant improvements in speech as assessed by scores for prosodic abnormality and intelligibility' and these were maintained in part for up to 3 months. The degree of improvement was clinically and psychologically important, and relatives commented on the social benefits. The use of a visual reinforcement device produced limited benefit over and above that from prosodic exercises alone, except to patients with severe speech disorder.

A series of chiral bridged macrocyclic 1,4-dihydropyridines was prepared, and the potential of these compounds for anantioselective reductions was examined. A typical synthesis begins with pyridine-3-5-dicarboxylic acid (9 W = OH), which is couple...
