|Parkinson's Disease||Drug: Fipamezole ODT Drug: Placebo|
Parkinson's Disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder worldwide. While treatment with dopaminergic agents like levodopa, the mainstay of treatment, is effective in the early phases of the disease, their benefits decrease with disease progression, and problems such as dyskinesia and on-off phenomenon begin to manifest. In this study, fipamezole, a new antagonist of an adrenergic receptor, is being investigated to better understand the safety and side-effect profile in patients with Parkinson's Disease.
The sampling method used was simple random sampling.

|Official Title:||A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Ascending Dose-Escalation Study of Safety and Tolerability of Oromucosal Fipamezole ODT in Adult Subjects With Parkinson's Disease Who Are Receiving Levodopa|
|Study Start Date :||June 2010|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||November 2010|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||November 2010|
Drug: Fipamezole ODT
Subjects take three daily doses of Fipamezole ODT, with each dose escalating from 30 to 60, 90, 120, 150 and up to 180 mg over 8 weeks.
1 to 2 tablets three times per day to be taken according to the same schedule as the active study drug.
- To determine the Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) of Fipamezole orally disintegrating tablets (ODT) in adult patients with Parkinson's disease. [ Time Frame: Days -28 to 56 ]
- To assess cardiovascular safety of ascending doses of Fipamezole ODT in adult patients with Parkinson's disease. [ Time Frame: Days -28 to 56 ]
- To evaluate pharmacokinetics (PK) of ascending doses of Fipamezole ODT in adult patients with Parkinson's disease. [ Time Frame: Days -28 to 56 ]
- To assess incidence and severity of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Days -28 to 63 ]
