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   41228   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   6756   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).


    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.1.3Condition being studied is a rare disease Yes
    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of this interventional study is to examine the effect of LCIG treatment relative to that of Optimized Medical Treatment (OMT) on dyskinesia as measured by the Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale (UDysRS) Total Score.
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    The Secondary objective is to assess the effect of LCIG treatment relative to that of OMT on dyskinesia as measured by PD Diaries, motor symptoms, motor complications, safety, tolerability and health-related outcome measures.
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria
    1. Male or female subjects of at least 30 years old at the time of Visit 3.
    2. Subject must have a diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson's disease according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society (UKPDS) Brain Bank Criteria
    3. Patients with advanced levodopa-responsive Parkinson's disease and persistent motor fluctuations who have not been controlled with optimized medical treatment. "Optimized medical treatment" is defined as the maximum therapeutic effect obtained with pharmacological antiparkinsonian therapies when no further improvement is expected regardless of any additional manipulations of levodopa and/or other antiparkinsonian medication. This will be based on the Investigator's clinical judgment.
    4. UDysRS Total score ≥ 30 at Visit 3 based on Central Blinded Rater's score.
    5. Subject (or subject's proxy/caregiver) must be able to complete both the Subject Dosing Diary and the PD Diary and must be able to demonstrate the ability to operate, manipulate, and care for the pump and tubing.
    6. Subject must demonstrate at least 75% concordance with the Investigator's or qualified designee's assessment of symptoms on the Parkinson's Disease Diary following training at Screening Visit 1 with concordance on at least 1 time interval of "Off," concordance on at least 1 time interval of "ON regardless of dyskinesia" and at least 1 time interval of "ON with dyskinesia" irrespective of whether the dyskinesia are troublesome or not troublesome.
    7. Subject is eligible to transfer to commercial treatment of Duodopa after completing the study based on local country requirements.
    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    1. Predominantly di-phasic dyskinesia, as per Investigator discretion.
    2. Patients who were treated with LCIG before
    3. Patients who have had previous surgery for PD including, but not limited to deep brain stimulation (DBS) or cell transplantation.
    4. A Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score of < 24 at Visit 1 or significant cognitive impairment that, in the opinion of the Investigator, could impact the subject's ability to participate in the trial
    5. Current primary psychiatric diagnosis of uncontrolled acute psychotic disorder or primary psychiatric diagnoses of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder or currently experiencing a major depressive episode with psychotic features per Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM V-TR).
    6. Subject experiencing clinically significant sleep attacks or clinically significant impulsive behavior (e.g., pathological gambling, hypersexuality) at any point during the three months prior to the Screening evaluation as judged by the Investigator.
    7. Current diagnosis or history of drug or alcohol abuse (DSM-V-TR criteria) within 12 months prior to screening visit.
    8. Participation in a concurrent interventional or observational study.
    9. Lack of motivation or insufficient language skills to complete the study questionnaires.
    10. Subject's PD diagnosis is unclear or there is a suspicion that the subject has a parkinsonian syndrome such as secondary parkinsonism (e.g., caused by drugs, toxins, infectious agents, vascular disease, trauma, brain neoplasm), atypical Parkinson Syndrome (e.g., Multiple System Atrophy, Progressive supranuclear Palsy, Diffuse Lewy Body disease) or other neurodegenerative disease that might mimic the symptoms of PD.
