Levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID) is a common motor complication of levodopa (L-DOPA) treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). In recent years, the role of astrocytes in LID has increasingly attracted attention. To explore the effect of an astrocyte regulator (ONO-2506) on LID in a rat model and the potential underlying physiological mechanism. Unilateral LID rat models, established by administering 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) into the right medial forebrain bundle through stereotactic injection, were injected with ONO-2506 or saline into the striatum through brain catheterization and were administered L-DOPA to induce LID. Through a series of behavioral experiments, LID performance was observed. Relevant indicators were assessed through biochemical experiments. In the LID model of 6-OHDA rats, ONO-2506 significantly delayed the development and reduced the degree of abnormal involuntary movement in the early stage of L-DOPA treatment and increased glial fibrillary acidic protein and glutamate transporter 1 (GLT-1) expression in the striatum compared to saline. However, there was no significant difference in the improvement in motor function between the ONO-2506 and saline groups. ONO-2506 delays the emergence of L-DOPA-induced abnormal involuntary movements in the early stage of L-DOPA administration, without affecting the anti-PD effect of L-DOPA. The delaying effect of ONO-2506 on LID may be linked to the increased expression of GLT-1 in the rat striatum. Interventions targeting astrocytes and glutamate transporters are potential therapeutic strategies to delay the development of LID. Copyright © 2023 The Author(s). Published by Elsevier Ltd..
