Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part II Score at the End of Maintenance [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in UPDRS Part II score (activities of daily living) from baseline to end of study. Score ranging from 0 - 52 (0=no disability, 52=maximum disability)

  • Change From Baseline in UPDRS Part III Score at the End of Maintenance [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in UPDRS Part III score (motor function) from baseline to end of study. Score ranging from 0 - 108 (0=no disability, 108=maximum disability)

  • Change From Baseline in Spiralometry Measurement at the End of Maintenance (Right Hand) [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in tremor amplitude from baseline to end of study for the right hand

  • Change From Baseline in Spiralometry Measurement at the End of Maintenance (Left Hand) [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in tremor amplitude from baseline to end of study for the left hand

  • Change From Baseline in Tremor Score From UPDRS (Items 16, 20, 21) at the End of Maintenance (Visit 3) [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction)in tremor score from baseline to end of study. Score ranging from 0 - 32 (0=no tremor, 32=high tremor)

  • Change From Baseline in 39 Item Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) Score at the End of Maintenance [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in PDQ-39 score (quality of life) from baseline to end of study. Score ranging from 0-100 (0=perfect health, 100=worst health as assessed by the measure)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Final Dose Distribution [ Time Frame: Enter Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (Visit 3) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Final Mirapexin® dose distribution at the end of study

  • Change From Baseline in UPDRS Part II Score at the End of Up-titration [ Time Frame: Enter Week 0 to weeks 1-8 (Visit 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in UPDRS Part II score (activities of daily living) from baseline to Visit 2. Score ranging from 0 - 52 (0=no disability, 52=maximum disability)

  • Change From Baseline in UPDRS Part III Score at the End of Up-titration [ Time Frame: Enter Week 0 to weeks 1-8 (Visit 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) in UPDRS Part III score (motor function) from baseline to Visit 2. Score ranging from 0 - 108 (0=no disability, 108=maximum disability)

  • Change in Tremor Score (UPDRS Items 16, 20, 21) at the End of Up-titration [ Time Frame: Enter Week 0 to weeks 1-8 (Visit 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change (reduction) from baseline in tremor score, derived from UPDRS from baseline to Visit 2. Score ranging from 0 - 32 (0=no tremor, 32=high tremor)

  • Incidence, Relationship and Seriousness of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (end of study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total number of adverse events (AEs), causality and level of seriousness

  • Number of Premature Discontinuations [ Time Frame: Week 0 to weeks 9-16 (end of study) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Number of patients discontinuing the study prematurely
