Abstract: Content of neurotransmitter amino acids before and after treatment with Не-Ne-laser was measured in blood of two groups of the Parkinson's disease patients distinguished by low (first group) and high (second group) activity of monoamine oxidase B and Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase. An increase in taurine level at the early stage of the disease (first group of patients) suggests taurine may by a marker of compensatory abilities of the organism. The violation of the glutamate/taurine that balance at the later stages of the disease and its normalization following the laserotherapy accompanied with improvement of neurological symptoms.
