    Parkinson’s Disease Management Update – What do we learn from PD MED studies?

    Three classes of drug are widely used to manage early and advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD). They are levodopa (L-dopa), dopamine agonists (DA) and monoamine oxidase B inhibitors (MAOB-I). L-dopa is the most commonly used and effective initial treatment for PD. However, after long-term or high-dose use, motor complications (e.g. dyskinesia) and motor fluctuations (ON and OFF) can develop. In early PD, could DA or MAOB-I be a better option for long term symptomatic control as motor complications are seen less frequently with DA and MAOB-I than L-dopa? Which one is preferable, DA, MAOB-I or catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors, if they are to be added to L-dopa to reduce motor complications and L-dopa use in advanced PD?  Parkinson Disease Medication (PD MED) were large pragmatic real-life randomized clinical studies aiming to establish which class of drug results in the best patient-rate quality of life scores, in both early and advanced PD. In this webinar, Prof. Fox will share the important findings of the studies and elucidate how these findings influence the use of drug classes of PD in both early and advanced stages.

    Anti-CGRP antibody therapy revolutionizes migraine treatment

    Migraine is one of the most debilitating diseases. It was ranked second regarding years lived with disability and posed a significant economic impact on society. For many patients, acute treatment using simple analgesics or triptans is insu­fficient to control the migraine, and may even worsen it if over-used. Oral preventive treatments aim at reducing monthly migraine days or migraine frequency. However, they were not initially designed for the treatment of migraine, and their use is often limited by an arsenal of side effects or inadequate relief. The adherence to these treatments is also disappointing. The breakthrough came when Prof. Peter Goadsby and other renowned neuroscientists discovered a cause of a migraine attack. They found that calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) could be an important new target for developing new treatments for migraine. Neurologists, headache specialists and patients eagerly awaited the approval of monoclonal antibodies targeting CGRP pathway. They were developed specifically for migraine prevention. In Hong Kong, 4 anti-CGRP antibody therapies have been approved for migraine preventive treatment. They are administered either subcutaneously or intravenously. They revolutionize migraine treatment by providing demonstrated good e­fficacy and low adverse reaction rates. How are the treatment guidelines being revised? Recently, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) also provides some guidance on using these anti-CGRP antibody therapies. What do you need to know about them? How to choose among them? Prof. Peter Goadsby will give you some hints and share with you his clinical experience on this regard.

    Eptinezumab – an efficacious, fast and sustained anti-CGRP monoclonal antibody therapy for preventive migraine treatment

    Antagonism targeting the CGRP pathway would give a hint on treatments countering migraine. Eptinezumab is a humanised monoclonal antibody preventing migraine by selectively and readily binding to both α- and β-CGRP ligands blocking them from binding to CGRP receptors. The e­fficacy of eptinezumab was first established in 2 pivotal studies, PROMISE-1 and PROMISE-2, in episodic and chronic migraine patients, respectively. The migraine preventive effect was observed on the first day after eptinezumab dosing, with more than 50% reduction in patients reported migraine while that in the placebo group was only about the half of the treatment groups. The effi­cacy of eptinezumab in controlling migraine was further demonstrated in the DELIVER study, in which patients failed 2-4 prior preventive treatment. Patients treated with eptinezumab had a greater reduction in the percentage of severe migraine attacks as well as greater reductions in monthly headache days (MHD) and monthly headache episodes compared to placebo. Frequent medication use to treat migraine attacks can lead to increased migraine frequency and is called medication-overuse headache (MOH). In a subgroup analysis of the PROMISE-2 trial, patients with chronic migraine and MOH treated with eptinezumab experienced greater reductions from baseline in MMD than placebo patients over 12 weeks. Moreover, more eptinezumab-treated patients were ≥50% migraine responders or ≥75% responders compared to placebo over 24 weeks. The long-term safety profile of eptinezumab (300mg) was assessed in the PREVAIL trial involving 128 patients with chronic migraine. The results indicated that eptinezumab is safe and well-tolerated. Prof. Diener is going to share with you the data.

    Real World Experience with Eptinezumab

    In Singapore, migraine ranks 4th among the top 10 most disabling health problems with a lifetime prevalence of 8.2%. Migraine has a negative impact on virtually all aspects of life including work, school, family, social, and finances. However, there is a significant unmet need for preventive migraine therapy. Out of the 40% patients who may be eligible for prevention, only 13% receive prevention. Furthermore, ~80% patients discontinue oral preventative therapy after 1 year of treatment mainly due to lack of e­fficacy and side effects. While there is strong scientific evidence of the e­fficacy of eptinezumab versus placebo in randomized trials, there is limited evidence regarding the effectiveness of eptinezumab (or any anti-CGRP medication) in a “real-world” setting in Asian patients. Dr Jonathan Ong, who is one of the principal investigators, of REAP study in Singapore, will share with you some update of the study.

    The advances in understanding the neurobiology of Parkinson’s Disease (PD) have led to advances both in the diagnosis and therapeutic management of this neurodegenerative disease. Other than L-Dopa, multiple refinements of pharmacological approach have increased the degree of benefit, which includes enzyme inhibitors of MAO-B and COMT, dopamine agonists as well as non-dopaminergic agents. Infusion therapies and DBS offer relief to L-Dopa related motor complications. In the 35th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Hong Kong Neurological Society, Prof. Werner Poewe of the Medical University of Innsbruck Austria offered a lecture on current updates in diagnosing and managing PD.

    Joint Scientific Webinar - Recent Advances in The Management of Disorder of Gut-Brain Interaction – Part I

    Disorders of Gut-Brain Interactions (DGBI) has been increasingly used to replace Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders (FGID) in recent years. The new terminology highlights the role of dysfunctional brain-gut axis in the pathophysiology of FGID. It is well known that most DGBI patients do not respond well to gut-directed therapy alone. An effective management approach of DGBI needs to be multi-targeted, which starts with evaluation of multidimensional clinical profile during diagnosis, stressor identification, lifestyle and dietary modification, and medical therapy. Owing to the high prevalence and strong association with psychiatric comorbidity, vigilance should be exercised to facilitate early intervention by mental health professionals. In recent years, gut microbial modulation through probiotics and functional food has been investigated for treatment of DGBI with promising results.

    Masterclass Webinar Series - Antidepressant Treatment in Major Depressive Disorder

    Childhood trauma is associated with negative neurobiological, physical, behavioural, psychosocial and mental health effects, and can increase the risk of early onset, relapse and chronicity of MDD (major depressive disorder). Resilience has been linked to better outcomes in MDD, including a decreased risk of onset and relapse. This webinar will explore the social, emotional, cognitive and biological systems implicated in resilience. Importantly, the role of resilience for MDD patients with history of childhood trauma will be discussed, as well as tips on fostering resilience in clinical practice.

    Explore the new possibilities - Part 2 Adjunctive Therapy in MDD

    Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a multifaceted condition with emotional, cognitive and physical symptoms that affect psychosocial functioning and quality of life. The best treatment outcome for a patient with MDD is a return to an optimal level of functioning, which may include the ability to maintain a job, build and retain relationships and interact with others. However, despite the availabiliity of different classes of antidepressants, many patients with MDD still experience an inadequate response to antidepressants, prolonging loss of social functioning and sense of well-being. Therefore, the role of an adjunctive therapy in MDD is needed to help patients achieve their full recovery and return to their functioning again.
