Drug Information available for: Rotigotine

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Rotigotine

- Titration Period: Weekly titration to the subject's optimal dose of Rotigotine between 2 mg/24 h and 8 mg/24 h. In case of intolerable Adverse Events (AEs) one back-titration is allowed during the Titration Period.

Duration of the Titration Period: Between 1 week and 5 weeks.

- Maintenance Period: Starts once subject reached either optimal or maximal dose of Rotigotine. Subjects receive stable dose of Rotigotine throughout the Maintenance Period. No back-titration is allowed during the Maintenance Period.

Duration of the Maintenance Period: Between 3 weeks and 7 weeks.

Drug: Rotigotine
Application of Rotigotine up to 8 mg/24 h patches for 24 hours.
Other Name: Neupro




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical Global Impression (CGI) Item 4 (Side Effects) at the End of the Treatment Period [ Time Frame: Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    The CGI Item 4 was used to assess side effects. It ranges from 0 to 4 as follows: 0 = Side effects not assessable

    1. = No side effects
    2. = Side effects do not significantly interfere with subject's functioning
    3. = Side effects significantly interfere with the subject's functioning
    4. = Side effects outweigh therapeutic efficacy.

  2. Change From Baseline to the End of the Treatment Period in the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part III ("on" State) Total Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    The Unified Parkinson´s Disease Rating Scale Part III is an accepted and validated scale for the assessment of motor function in Parkinson´s disease. Each of the 27 sub-items in the UPDRS III is measured on a scale of 0 to 4, where 0 is normal and 4 represents severe abnormalities. The total scores therefore ranges from 0 to 108.

    A negative value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates an improvement in motor functions from Baseline.


  3. Change From Baseline to the End of the Treatment Period in the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part II (Average of "on" and "Off" State) Total Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    UPDRS Part II measures 'Activities in Daily Living'. The total score ranges from 0 (Best score possible) to 52 (Worst score possible).

    UPDRS Part II total score (average of "on" and "off" state) is the average of UPDRS Part II total score ("on" state) and Part II total score ("off" state).

    A negative value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates an improvement in activities in daily living from Baseline.


  4. Change From Baseline to the End of the Treatment Period in Absolute Time Spent "Off" [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    Absolute time spent "off" is measured in hours per day. A negative value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates that the time spent "off" decreased from Baseline and therefore indicates an improvement from Baseline.

    Only subjects with time spent "off" at Baseline (subset of the Full Analysis Set (FAS)) are included in the analysis of this outcome measure.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline to the End of the Treatment Period in Time Spent "on" Without Troublesome Dyskinesia [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]
    Absolute time spent "on" without troublesome dyskinesia is measured in hours per day. A positive value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates that the time spent "on" without troublesome dyskinesia increased from Baseline and therefore indicates an improvement from Baseline.

  2. Change From Baseline to the End of Treatment Period in Parkinson's Disease Sleep Scale 2 (PDSS-2) Total Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    The Parkinson´s Disease Sleep Scale (PDSS) is a questionnaire with 15 questions to assess sleep disturbance and nocturnal disability in Parkinson´s disease. The item- scores can range between 0= never and 4= very often. The PDSS score is a sum score of all 15 questions.

    A negative value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates an improvement from Baseline.


  3. Change From Baseline to the End of Treatment Period in the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) Global Score [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Week 0) to Week 8 (Visit 8) of the 8 weeks Treatment Period (Titration and Maintenance Period) ]

    The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) is a questionnaire with 18 questions to assess sleep quality. The 18 questions are distributed to 7 elements with each element ranging from 0-3. The global score is the sum score of all 7 elements and ranges from 0-21 with higher values indicating worse sleep quality.

    A negative value in Change from Baseline to Week 8 indicates an improvement in sleep quality from Baseline.
