Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline to endpoint in the modified AIMS (Abnormal Involuntary Movement Scale) total score [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Disability due to dyskinesias as measured by change from baseline to endpoint in the PDYS-26 (26-Item Parkinson Disease Dyskinesia Scale) total score [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change from baseline on patient's dyskinesia, disability caused by the dyskinesia and the underlying symptoms of PD as assessed by a clinician-rated (CGIC) and a patient-rated (PGIC) global impression of change [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anti-dyskinetic efficacy as measured by items 32 and 33 of Part IV of the UPDRS (Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Worsening of underlying symptoms of PD as measured by: UPDRS Part III; patient diary (dyskinesias); patient/clinician assessments of change in PD symptoms; AEs related to worsening of PD [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
