I just read something about a source of levodopa that can be inhaled.

Could you comment and any idea when it might be available to the public

There have been several preliminary studies on the inhaled levodopa and this may be an effective delivery system for some patients.  The data is promising and we are watching carefully to see in the USA if it can obtain a FDA approval.
