    The Evaluation of vital signs includes the changes in blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate and Body temperature over time (measured at each visit).
  • Safety related Evaluation of MRI results of patients' brain after visit 5 and visit 8 compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    MRI safety measures will e.g. include the occurrence of inflammatory reactions (meningoencephalitis), new/changed hemorrhages and lacunar infarcts.
  • Clinical significance/changes in laboratory parameters over time (study period) [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Laboratory assessment includes hematology, biochemistry, coagulation, serology and urinanalysis.

Study Assessing Tolerability and Safety of AFFITOPE® PD03A in Patients With Early Parkinson's Disease
A Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Parallel Group, Patient-blinded, Multi-center, Phase I Pilot Study to Assess Tolerability and Safety of Two Doses of AFFITOPE® PD03A Formulated With Adjuvant to Patients With Early Parkinson's Disease

Study AFF011 is a randomized controlled parallel Group phase I study to investigate the safety and tolerability of two doses of the vaccine AFFITOPE® PD03A given to patients with early Parkinson's disease.

In total 36 patients will be enrolled in 3 independent groups (2 treatment groups, 1 Placebo group), each consisting of 12 patients. The patients will be randomized to either receive 15µg or 75µg AFFITOPE® PD03A formulated with adjuvant or the reference substance without active component (Placebo). Over a study duration of 52 weeks, the study participants receive 4 injections as basic immunization in a 4-weekly interval and 1 boost immunization 36 weeks after the first injection. Male and female patients aged 45 to 70 years can participate in the trial. 2 study sites in Austria (Innsbruck and Vienna) will be involved.

AFF011 is part of a project SYMPATH funded by the European Commission (FP7-HEALTH-2013-INNOVATION-1 project; N° HEALTH-F4-2013-602999).

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Individuals with IPS diagnosed for less than 4 years and who present in Hoehn & Yahr Stages I/II and fulfill the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society Brain Bank Criteria
  • The result of a DAT-SPECT and MRI examination of the patient's brain has to be consistent with the diagnosis of PD
  • Written Informed Consent Form signed and dated by the patient
  • Age between 45 and 70
