About

Parkinson's disease is a major neurodegenerative disorder in which there is a progressive loss of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. The understanding that PD is a syndrome of dopamine (DA) deficiency led to the introduction in the clinical practice of L-dopa, a precursor of DA that crosses the blood brain barrier, and also to the use of selective inhibitors of MAO B, the major DA metabolising enzyme in man. This is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, extension trial, parallel-group, randomised, multi-centre, multi national, Phase III trial, comparing two doses of safinamide (50 and 100 mg p.o. q.a.m.) versus placebo as add-on therapy to a stable dose of a single dopamine agonist in subjects with early idiopathic Parkinson's Disease. The principal objective is to evaluate the time to first intervention, as some previous data suggested that safinamide may delay the need for further dopaminergic supplementation.

  • Subject is willing and able to participate in the trial and has provided written, informed consent

Exclusion criteria

  • If female, the subject is pregnant or lactating.
  • The subject experienced a clinically significant adverse effect during trial 27918 that could put the subject at risk according to the investigator's opinion.
  • The subject has shown clinically significant deterioration during participation in Trial 27918.
  • Motor deterioration during trial 27918 that required upward titration of existing anti-parkinsonian medication or the initiation of an additional anti-parkinsonian medication.
  • The investigator deems it is not in the subject's best interest to participate to trial 27938
  • Signs and symptoms suggestive of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy, or family members who suffer(ed) from such.
