The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug called CVL-751 (also known as tavapadon) as a possible adjunctive (supportive) treatment for Parkinson's disease. Tavapadon works by targeting the dopamine system in the brain and is being investigated to determine whether it can further improve Parkinson's disease symptoms when combined with a drug called levodopa. Specifically, researchers aim to learn how well tavapadon works and how safe it is when combined with patients' current levodopa (L-Dopa) treatment. Participants will be randomly assigned to receive either the study drug or placebo (inactive substance). The study is divided into 3 time periods: a 4 week screening/baseline period, a 27-week treatment period, and a 4-week post-treatment safety follow-up period. During each study period, participants will have one or more visits with their study doctor.
