Reporting Groups
  Description
15 mg Pioglitazone

15 mg pioglitazone

Pioglitazone: Oral capsules of Pioglitazone (15 mg capsules) either 15 mg/qd or 45 mg/qd or matching placebo

44 weeks: Subjects who are on stable dose of rasagiline 1 mg/day or selegiline 10 mg/day, for at least 8 weeks but no more than 8 months, will begin randomized dose of study drug. Subjects will titrate in a blinded fashion to 30 mg/day after 2 weeks and to 45 mg per day) 2 weeks later as tolerated. Subjects will be followed on study drug for 44 weeks.

45 mg Pioglitazone

45 mg pioglitazone

Pioglitazone: Oral capsules of Pioglitazone (15 mg capsules) either 15 mg/qd or 45 mg/qd or matching placebo

44 weeks: Subjects who are on stable dose of rasagiline 1 mg/day or selegiline 10 mg/day, for at least 8 weeks but no more than 8 months, will begin randomized dose of study drug. Subjects will titrate in a blinded fashion to 30 mg/day after 2 weeks and to 45 mg per day) 2 weeks later as tolerated. Subjects will be followed on study drug for 44 weeks.

Matching Placebo

Placebo

placebo: Placebo will contain microcrystalline cellulose. An over-encapsulation process will be conducted in accordance with Clinical Good Manufacturing Procedures (cGMP) regulations to create a dosage form for the active study drug that will be indistinguishable from the comparator (Placebo) capsule.
