  Purpose

This is a phase I study to assess the tolerability and safety of 4 injections of two different doses of AFFITOPE® PD01A formulated with aluminium oxide as adjuvant to patients with early Parkinson's disease in male and female patients aged 45 to 65 years (or age between 40 and 45 years if there is no evidence for genetic forms of the disease and the diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson's disease was confirmed, after approval by Sponsor). One study site in Vienna (Austria) will be involved. Each patient's participation will last 1 year.

In addition, up to 8 patients will be offered participation within an untreated control group.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Tolerability/Safety [ Time Frame: 12 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    • Occurrence of any AE (including a clinical grading scale of AEs according to NCI-CTCAE Version 4.02 (2009) for assessments of AEs + toxicity and including a grading of local injection site reactions according to the FDA Guidance for Industry: Toxicity Scale for Healthy Adult and Adolescents Patients Enrolled in Preventive Vaccine Clinical Trials (2007))
    • Occurrence of any SAE
    • Withdrawal criteria (number of patients who withdraw due to AEs/ reason for withdrawal)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunological [ Time Frame: 12 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    - Titer of vaccination induced antibodies directed towards vaccine components, alpha- and beta synuclein

  • Clinical Activity [ Time Frame: 12 month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    • Change in motor symptoms (MDS-UPDRS III)
    • Change in non-motor PD symptoms (e.g.; MDS-UPDRS Ia, II, PDQ39, cognition)
    • Change in biological and radiological markers (e.g. CSF alpha synuclein levels)

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and DAT-SPECT scan are consistent with the diagnosis of PD
  • Age between 45 and 65 years or age between 40 and 45 years if there is no evidence for genetic forms of the disease and the diagnosis of idiopathic PD was confirmed, after approval by Sponsor
  • Caregiver able to attend all visits with patient
  • Stable doses of medications (levodopa (+/- benserazide, carbidopa), COMT inhibitors (entacapone, tolcapone), non-ergot dopamine agonists (pramipexol, ropinirol, rotigotine), the MAO-B inhibitor rasagiline and amantadine are allowed)

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Parkinson-plus syndromes
  • Heredodegenerative disorders
  • Alcoholism or substance abuse
  • Prior treatment with experimental immunotherapeutics for PD including IVIG, with immunosuppressive drugs or treatment with deep brain stimulation
  • Venous status rendering it impossible to place an i.v. access
