Quick home test for Parkinson's medication adjustment: Detection of L-DOPA in blood using enzyme colorimetry

Parkinson's disease is a neurological disorder that primarily affects motor performance. L-DOPA is the precursor of dopamine (DA) synthesis in the body and is widely used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. However, because of the side effects associated with these drugs, clinical adjustments to the medication are often required. Therefore, measuring the concentration of L-DOPA in patients is an issue of interest for many researchers. Several methods have been developed to detect the concentration of L-DOPA, such as electrochemical assay and liquid chromatography, but there are still some limitations. In this study, a simple enzymatic colorimetric method was developed to selectively identify and oxidize L-DOPA by oxidative enzymes, resulting in a yellow product that can be identified by the naked eye; the concentration of L-DOPA can be inferred from the color intensity. Therefore, it can be used as a quick and easy estimation of the L-DOPA concentration in the test body, which is expected to be used as an indicator and reference for drug formulation.

Prof. Apex Pang-soong Lin Awarded Honor Laureate in 2022 CIIPE

CIIPE was co-founded in 1979 by CSU faculty and designers Phil Risbeck and John Sorbie, and Northern Colorado artist Bob Coonts. It serves as a unique educational resource allowing graphic design and art majors to work directly with designers study the work closely with current CSU graphic design faculty and gain valuable career experience preparing and installing the exhibition. Unlike other international design competitions that publicly invite participants to submit works, the committee of CIIPE sends invitations to designers worldwide to participate with their latest works. Its unique way of running makes Colorado a mecca for poster design with more than 3000 posters from renowned artists.
