  Purpose

The primary purpose of this extension study is to assess the long-term safety and tolerability of preladenant in participants from parent studies NCT01155466 [P04938] and NCT01227265 [P07037] with moderate to severe Parkinson's Disease (PD). The study will also characterize the long-term efficacy of preladenant in participants with PD.

Participants will continue to receive their stable regimen of levodopa (L-dopa) plus any adjunct medications during the study as prescribed by their physician. Several classes of adjunct medications may be used, including Amantadine, anticholinergics, dopa decarboxylase inhibitors, and dopamine agonists.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Systolic Blood Pressure ≥180 mmHg [ Time Frame: Up to 42 weeks ]
    The percentage of participants with Systolic Blood Pressure ≥180 mm Hg was reported. On Day 1 and Early Termination, blood pressure was measured as follows: Participant lay supine for 5 minutes, then had blood pressure taken; then stood for 3 minutes and had blood pressure taken; then rested for 10 minutes, at which time the process was repeated twice (ie, three rounds total). For all other blood pressure measurements, the procedure needed only to be done once (ie, one round).

  • Percentage of Participants With Diastolic Blood Pressure ≥105 mmHg [ Time Frame: Up to 42 weeks ]
    The percentage of participants with Diastolic Blood Pressure ≥105 mmHg was reported. On Day 1 and Early Termination, blood pressure was measured as follows: Participant lay supine for 5 minutes, then had blood pressure taken; then stood for 3 minutes and had blood pressure taken; then rested for 10 minutes, at which time the process was repeated twice (ie, three rounds total). For all other blood pressure measurements, the procedure needed only to be done once (ie, one round).

  • Percentage of Participants With Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) ≥3 Times Upper Limit of Normal and ≥10% Increase From Baseline [ Time Frame: Up to 42 weeks ]
    The number of participants with ALT ≥3 times the upper limit of normal and a ≥10% increase was reported. Laboratory safety blood work was collected from participants at Week 4, Week 6, and Week 8 visits.

  • Percentage of Participants With Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) ≥3 Times Upper Limit of Normal and ≥10% Increase From Baseline [ Time Frame: Up to 42 weeks ]
    The number of participants with AST ≥3 times the upper limit of normal and a ≥10% increase was reported. Laboratory safety blood work was collected from participants at Week 4, Week 6, and Week 8 visits.

  • Percentage of Participants With Suicidality [ Time Frame: Up to 42 weeks ]
    The number of participants with suicidality using the Columbia - Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) was reported. The C-SSR was used in this study only for the purpose of safety monitoring by measuring the incidence of different types of suicidality categories during treatment. The assessment was done by the nature of the responses, not by a numbered scale. Participants who reported at least one occurrence of suicidal behavior or suicidal ideation were counted as having experienced suicidality. Suicidal behavior included suicide attempt, aborted attempt, interrupted attempt, or preparatory behavior. Suicidal ideation included a wish to die or active suicidal thought with or without method, intent or plan.

  • Percentage Change From Baseline in Total Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) Score at Week 40 [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 40 ]
    The ESS is a self-administered questionnaire providing a measure of a person's general level of daytime sleepiness, or their average sleep propensity in daily life. The scale consists of 8 situations in which the participant rates their tendency to become sleepy on a scale of 0=no chance of dozing to 3=high chance of dozing. The overall score is the sum of the scores for the 8 situations for a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 24 with a higher score indicating greater sleepiness.
