This study focuses on individuals who have Parkinson's disease with poorly controlled or involuntary movement symptoms. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an investigational drug called ND0612, delivered under the skin, as a possible treatment for Parkinson's disease. ND0612 is a solution of levodopa/carbidopa (LD/CD) delivered as a continuous, subcutaneous (under the skin) infusion through a pump system to treat Parkinson's disease. It is not yet known how well the infusion treatment works compared with standard treatment (with tablets). In this study, oral LD/CD will be given on top of the infusion as needed. Researchers hope that the administration of LD and CD as a continuous infusion will result in more constant drug levels in the patient's blood, which may reduce Parkinson's symptoms more effectively than current standard treatment.
What is the full name of this clinical trial?
A multicenter, randomized, active-controlled, double-blind, doubledummy,parallel group clinical trial, investigating the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of continuous subcutaneous ND0612 infusion in comparison to oral IR-LD/CD in subjects with Parkinson's disease experiencing motor fluctuations
