Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of participants with disability using United Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) [ Time Frame: 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of participants with disability sufficient to require dopaminergic therapy was assessed according to the United Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Parts I and II are historical data and are designed to rate mentation, behavior and mood; Part III is done as a motor examination at the time of a visit. The UPDRS measures patient status on a scale 0, which is normal or none, to 4, which is severe or the worst scenario.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from Baseline to 22 months in ([123I]β-CIT) Uptake Participants [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 22 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The effect of CEP-1347 on dopaminergic transporter density using 2β-carboxymethoxy-3β-(4-iodophenyl) tropane ([123I]β-CIT) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging

  • Safety and Tolerability as assessed by the number of participants experiencing adverse events [ Time Frame: 48 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety was assessed by adverse events (including deaths, serious adverse events, and withdrawals due to adverse events.)

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: CEP-1347 10mg
CEP-1347 was administered at a dosage of 10mg twice daily (bid); capsule strengths were 5, 12.5, and 25 mg. Each patient took 2 capsules at each dosing time, approximately 12 hours apart, within 30 minutes after the morning and evening meals) for a total of 4 capsules per day.Patients were randomly assigned to CEP-1347 or placebo treatment in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. A blocked randomization scheme was used to ensure approximately equal numbers of patients in each of the 4 treatment groups at each center.
Drug: CEP-1347 10mg
CEP-1347 10mg, a K252a derivative, retains neuroprotective properties
Experimental: CEP-1347 25mg
CEP-1347 was administered at a dosage of 25mg twice daily (bid); capsule strengths were 5, 12.5, and 25 mg. Each patient took 2 capsules at each dosing time, approximately 12 hours apart, within 30 minutes after the morning and evening meals) for a total of 4 capsules per day.Patients were randomly assigned to CEP-1347 or placebo treatment in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. A blocked randomization scheme was used to ensure approximately equal numbers of patients in each of the 4 treatment groups at each center.
Drug: CEP1347 25mg
CEP1347 25mg, a K252a derivative, retains neuroprotective properties
Experimental: CEP-1347 50mg
CEP-1347 was administered at a dosage of 50mg twice daily (bid); capsule strengths were 5, 12.5, and 25 mg. Each patient took 2 capsules at each dosing time, approximately 12 hours apart, within 30 minutes after the morning and evening meals) for a total of 4 capsules per day.Patients were randomly assigned to CEP-1347 or placebo treatment in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. A blocked randomization scheme was used to ensure approximately equal numbers of patients in each of the 4 treatment groups at each center.
Drug: CEP-1347 50mg
CEP-1347 50mg, a K252a derivative, retains neuroprotective properties
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo capsules matching the CEP-1347 capsules were administered in the same manner.
Other: Placebo Comparator
Placebo capsules matching the CEP-1347 capsules
