Levodopa Responsiveness: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Parkinson's Disease:
>94% of true PD patients will respond to levodopa in general (see the other entry for a specific study, albeit with lower responsiveness). However, many other disorders, e.g. MSA and DLB, have good initial responsiveness (my 30% was ballparking based on separate series with different diseases).
