Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) Parts I-III sum score [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) parts I-III includes several items assessing motor and non-motor signs and symptoms including cognitive impairment, sleep problems, speech, facial expression etc. Each of the items in the UPDRS parts is measured on a scale of 0 to 4, where 0 is normal and 4 (higher score) represents severe abnormalities/worse outcome. The scores from all 3 parts will be added together in which higher scores indicate worse disease.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. MDS-UPDRS Part III subscale [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) part III includes motor items assessing speech, facial expression, rigidity, finger tapping, hand movements, pronation supination movements of hands, toe tapping, leg agility, arising from chair, gait, freezing of gait, postural stability, posture, global spontaneity of movement (body bradykinesia), postural tremor of the hands, kinetic tremor of the hands, rest tremor amplitude, and constancy of rest tremor. Each of the items in the UPDRS is measured on a scale of 0 to 4, where 0 is normal and 4 (higher score) represents severe abnormalities/worse outcome.

  2. MDS-UPDRS Part II subscale [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) part II includes motor items assessing speech, saliva and drooling, chewing and swallowing, eating tasks (cutting food and handling utensils), dressing, hygiene, handwriting, doing hobbies and other activities, turning in bed, tremor, getting out of bed, a car or a deep chair, walking and balance, and freezing. Each of the items in the UPDRS is measured on a scale of 0 to 4, where 0 is normal and 4 (higher score) represents severe abnormalities/worse outcome.

  3. MDS-UPDRS Part I subscale [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Movement Disorder Society Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) part I includes several non-motor aspects of experiences of daily living including cognitive impairment, hallucinations and psychosis, depressed mood, anxious mood, apathy, features of dopamine dysregulation syndrome during part 1A and sleep problems, daytime sleepiness, pain and other sensation, urinary problems, constipation problems, lightheadedness on standing, and fatigue during Part 1B. Each of the items in the UPDRS is measured on a scale of 0 to 4, where 0 is normal and 4 (higher score) represents severe abnormalities/worse outcome.

  4. Time to worsening of the disease on MDS-UPDRS Part III scale [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Time to worsening of the disease on the MDS-UPDRS III scale as defined by a 5 point increase in MDS-UPDRS III, within the 18-month period.

  5. Change in Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) [ Time Frame: From Screening up to 18 Months ]
    The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) assesses different cognitive domains (visuospatial/executive, naming, memory, attention, language, abstraction, delayed recall, and orientation). Participants are assessed on a 30-point scale. A score of 26 or above is considered normal, a lower score indicate cognitive impairment.

  6. Change in Dopamine Transporter Imaging with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (DaT-SPECT) mean striatum specific binding ratios (SBR) [ Time Frame: From Screening up to 18 Months ]
    The change from baseline (screening) in mean striatum specific binding ratios (SBR) will be assessed by Dopamine Transporter Imaging with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography using 123I-Ioflupane as radiopharmaceutical.

  7. Time to start of symptomatic treatment (ST) [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Time to start of symptomatic treatment (ST) within the 18-month period.

  8. Symptomatic treatment intake [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 18 Months ]
    Number of participants on symptomatic treatment (ST) at 18 months

  9. Incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 19 Months ]
    Adverse event: Any untoward medical occurrence associated with the use of a drug in humans, whether or not considered drug related.

  10. Incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From Screening up to 19 Months ]
    Serious adverse event: Death, a life-threatening adverse event, inpatient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, a persistent or significant incapacity or substantial disruption of the ability to conduct normal life functions, or a congenital anomaly/birth defect. Important medical events that may not result in death, be life-threatening, or require hospitalization may be considered serious when, based upon appropriate medical judgment, they may jeopardize the patient or subject and may require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the outcomes listed in this definition.

  11. Incidence of TEAEs leading to participant withdrawal [ Time Frame: From Baseline up to 19 Months ]
    Adverse event: Any untoward medical occurrence associated with the use of a drug in humans, whether or not considered drug related.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Study participant must be 40 to 75 years of age inclusive, at the time of signing the informed consent
  • Study participant has Parkinson's Disease (PD), with a diagnosis made by a neurologist according to the 2015 Movement Disorder Society criteria within 2 years of Baseline Visit
  • The following diagnostic criteria must be met: bradykinesia AND at least ONE of the following: muscular rigidity, or resting tremor
  • A Screening Dopamine Transporter Imaging with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (DaT-SPECT) is consistent with PD as determined by a central reader
  • Study participant has no clear family history of autosomal-dominant forms of PD or confirmation of such mutations by genetic testing. Historical genetic testing information will be considered but is not required and will not be conducted for Screening purposes
  • Study participant is in the ≤2 modified Hoehn and Yahr stage at Screening
  • Study participant has never taken medications for the treatment of motor symptoms of PD and is not expected to require starting symptomatic treatment (ST) with a high likelihood in the next 6 months as far as clinical judgement allows
  • Study participant has never taken part in disease-modifying treatment studies directed at neurodegenerative disease (NDD)
  • Study participant is willing, competent, and able to comply with all aspects of the protocol, including follow-up schedule and biospecimen collection
  • A male participant must agree to use contraception during the Treatment Period and for at least 90 days after the last dose of study medication and refrain from donating sperm during this period
  • A female participant is eligible to participate if she is not pregnant, not breastfeeding, and at least one of the following conditions applies:

    (i) Not a woman of childbearing potential (WOCBP) OR A WOCBP who agrees to follow the contraceptive guidance during the Treatment Period and for at least 1 month after the last dose of study medication. The study participant must have a negative serum pregnancy test at Screening (Visit 1), which is to confirmed negative by urine testing prior to the first dose of study medication at Baseline (Visit 3). If oral contraception is used, an additional barrier method will be required during the study

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Study participant has a known hypersensitivity to any components (and/or its excipients) of the study medication or comparative drugs as stated in the protocol
  • Study participant has a brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan performed during Screening indicative of a clinically significant abnormality or a historical MRI scan during the 6 months before Screening Visit 1 of sufficient quality to show such abnormalities. In case of doubt, the significance is determined on a case-by-case basis in close collaboration with the Medical Monitor and should not include abnormalities like age-appropriate brain atrophy, minor white matter signals, or mild vasculopathy
  • Study participant has any contraindication for the brain MRI or Dopamine Transporter Imaging with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (DaT-SPECT) imaging
  • Study participant has a Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score less than 23, indicating mild cognitive impairment or other significant cognitive impairment or clinical dementia at Screening that, in the opinion of the Investigator, would interfere with study evaluation
  • Study participant has abnormalities in lumbar spine previously known or determined by a Screening lumbar x-ray (if conducted) that could preclude lumbar puncture, in the opinion of the Investigator
  • Study participant has clinically significant electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormality at Screening, in the opinion of the Investigator
  • Study participant has past history of use of medications for the treatment of motor symptoms of PD (with the exception of short pharmacological testing for confirmation of diagnosis) or drugs with a potential PD disease modifying effect
