This study will be an open-label, randomized, multi-center, 2-way crossover Pharmacokinetic PK evaluation of a single inhaled dose of CVT-301 84 mg and a single oral dose of carbidopa/levodopa CD/LD 25 mg/100 mg (Sinemet®) under fed conditions in Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients who regularly take CD/LD.
The research team used meta-analytical statistical methods to integrate the results of different research groups on Parkinson's disease, using meta-analysis to find key genes related to the pathogenesis and development of Parkinson's disease, and to make small clinical results. The verification of the sample, the internal mechanism of the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease and provide guidance and reference for subsequent experimental research.
The aim of this study is to determine the fall and balance conditions of Parkinson's patients according to their urinary complaints.
The aim of this study is to explore the potential of Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) to slow down the progression of Parkinson's Disease (PD) in a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, "proof of concept" study. The primary objective of the study will be to determine the safety and tolerability of this drug in patients with PD. Participants will be recruited form a cohort of patients who have been diagnosed with PD within the last 3 years and are potentially suitable for this study. There is strong evidence from previous research and the work carried out by other groups that UDCA rescues the function of the mitochondria (mitochondria are the "powerhouse" of the cell) in PD patient tissue and other models of PD. This suggests that UDCA may slow down the worsening of PD. UDCA has been in clinical use for the treatment of liver disease (primary biliary cholangitis) for over 30 years. The investigators therefore know that it is safe and well tolerated in patients with liver disease but the investigators don't know yet whether this is also the case in patients with PD. Furthermore, the dose used for patients with liver disease (15 mg/kg) is not high enough for UDCA to get into the brain. The investigators therefore need to double the dose to 30 mg/kg. This higher dose was also safe in clinical trials for liver disease, but is currently not used routinely in clinical practice.
The aim is to improve availability and acceptability of deep brain stimulation (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson by shortening and simplifying the implantation procedure, thereby reducing time in surgery, complexity, post-surgery complications and cost, and increasing patient satisfaction. To facilitate the shortening and simplifying of the implantation procedure, a miniaturised skull-mounted DBS device (Picostim) has been developed which is optimised to generate waveforms needed for stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and STN region, employing a unique method of controlling stimulation current. The planned study is a single centre, open label, non-randomised design with the primary objective of showing similarity in control of motor symptoms for the Picostim device compared with previously published data for existing DBS devices.
Parkinson disease is the second most frequent neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer disease and affect 1% of the population over 60 years. The treatment of PD is based on dopamine replacement therapies (DRT). Nausea is the most frequent adverse event whatever the drug, occurring in 30-40% of patients at the initiation of DRT. Domperidone, a dopamine D2 receptor antagonist with antiemetic properties, does not readily cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing its used in PD. Domperidone may prolong the duration of the QT interval in predisposed patients, and has been associated with proarrhythmia and arrhythmic deaths. Arrhythmias, sudden death and cardiac arrest were reported with high intravenous doses which has led to withdraw of the parenteral form of the drug in 1984. Two case control studies found an increased risk of sudden death associated with domperidone use. In these reports, the increased risk was depending on age, dose, and the use of domperidone in combination with CYP3A4 inhibitors. Following the discussion created by this alert, the PRAC of the EMA has issued recommendations restricting domperidone use to patients younger than 60 years at doses below 30 mg/day and for a short period (7 days). Because there is no alternative antiemetic drug to be used in PD, domperidone is commonly prescribed as a preventive therapy in most PD patients initiating DRT. In this population, usually older than 60 years, doses of 60 or 80 mg/day are commonly prescribed, for at least 2 months of the DRT escalating dose period or longer. A particular "niche" of domperidone misuse might be patients treated with continuous subcutaneous administration of apomorphine, a second line therapy in PD, inducing severe and prolonged nausea in almost all patients. Little is known about the use of domperidone in PD in France, but misuse of domperidone in PD patients is probably very high. Data collected from two French PD cohorts, COPARK and DIGPD, showed that 8-14% of PD patients were treated with domperidone. The aim of this proposal is to investigate the practices and beliefs of French neurologists regarding use and misuse of domperidone in PD, by a qualitative approach.
This study will examine the feasibility of an at-home cognitive training program that incorporates both memory training and online computerized cognitive training (CCT) software. Data will also be collected to determine if this program improves thinking and memory as well as everyday function. The hypothesis is that memory and cognitive training combined , compared to memory training alone or will lead to greater improvements in cognitive performance and daily function.
The purpose of this study is to examine safety, feasibility, and the behavioral and brain effects of a non-invasive treatment, repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS), for Veterans with Parkinson's disease and mild impairments in their thinking. The hypothesis is that rTMS can improve thinking for people with Parkinson's disease who are experiencing mild problems with their thinking ability.
Phase I study to assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics of single and multiple doses of KW-6356 in healthy volunteers
REPAIR-PD is a single-center open label pilot, sequential group, investigator and patient blinded study to assess the CNS metabolic effects, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of CNM-Au8 in patients who have been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease (PD) within three (3) years of Screening. The primary endpoint is the ratio of the oxidized to reduced form of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+:NADH) measured non-invasively by 31phosphorous magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS).
