Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   35918   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   5893   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease No
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this study will be to provide further evidence of the long-term safety and tolerability of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (Duodopa) over 6-12-months in subjects with advanced Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and severe motor-fluctuations who have not had optimal response to oral levodopa-carbidopa treatment. Additional supportive evidence for efficacy will be assessed in the treatment of severe motor-fluctuations, dyskinesia and mobility.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    A secondary statistical objective is to assess the long-term maintenance of efficacy.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study Information not present in EudraCT
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    Diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson’s disease according to the United Kingdom Parkinson’s Disease Society (UKPDS) Brain Bank Criteria with the diagnosis made at least 2 years prior to enrollment in the study.
    2. The subject’s Parkinson’s disease must be the levodopa-responsive type as judged by the investigator; additionally, subjects will need to demonstrate severe motor fluctuations in spite of individually optimized oral treatment, and where other therapy options beside oral treatment are indicated.
    3. Subjects have had optimal treatment with available PD medication as defined by local standards of care and, based upon the judgment of the investigator, are judged inadequately controlled on this optimized treatment.
    4. Presence of a recognizable “off” and “on” state (motor fluctuations) as confirmed by diary at baseline (diary measurements performed for the three days preceding the baseline visit).
    5. Subjects or subject’s proxy/caretaker must be able to keep a subject diary of “off” time.
    6. Minimum “off” time must be approximately 3 hours per day as estimated by the investigator.
    7. The subject must be able to understand the nature of the study and must provide written informed consent prior to the conduct of any study procedures (including any changes occurring in the subject’s current therapeutic regimen).
    8. Subjects must be able to speak, read, understand and possess the ability to respond to and follow simple instructions in their native language and/or in English. All required documents, including the informed consent, will be translated into the native language as appropriate.
    9. Male or female subjects aged at least 30 years

    See protocol for more details
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Diagnosis is unclear or a suspicion of other Parkinsonian syndromes exists, such as secondary Parkinsonism (caused by drugs, toxins, infectious agents, vascular disease, trauma, brain neoplasm), Parkinson-plus syndromes (e.g., multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy) or the other neurodegenerative diseases;
    2. Subjects who have undergone surgery for the treatment of PD (e.g., pallidotomy, deep brain stimulation, fetal tissue transplantation);
    3. Subjects with any neurological deficit that might interfere with the study assessments (e.g. hemiparesis);
    4. Treatment with prohibited medications (see Section 7.8);
    5. Known hypersensitivity to levodopa, carbidopa or radiopaque material;
    6. Contraindications to levodopa, such as narrow angle glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, pheochromocytoma, Cushing’s syndrome and history of malignant melanoma;
    7. Current diagnosis or history of drug or alcohol abuse (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders [DSM]-IV-TR criteria) within 12 months prior to screening visit;
    8. Current primary psychiatric diagnosis of acute psychotic disorder or other primary psychiatric diagnoses, such as bipolar disorder or major depressive disorder (DSM-IV-TR criteria);
    9. Psychiatric, neurological or behavioral disorders that may interfere with the ability of subjects to give informed consent, or interfere with the conduct or interpretation of the study; troublesome hallucinations would also be included under this category;

    See protocol for more details
    E.5 End points
    E.5.1Primary end point(s)
    - Change from baseline in mean daily “off” time (hours), based on a self-administered home diary assessment of motor state on three consecutive days at multiple intervals.
    - Change from baseline in the diary based assessment of “on” time with troublesome dyskinesia, and “on” time without troublesome dyskinesia
    - Clinical Global Impression-Improvement (CGI-I) scores
    - Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) total score and sub-scores of parts I-III. Practically defined “off” time (pre am dose) and best “on” time (1-2 hours post dose) and Part IV (subscore Dyskinesia items)
