Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the gastric retentive Accordion Pill™ Carbidopa/Levodopa (AP-CD/LD) is more effective than the commercially available immediate release Carbidopa/Levodopa in reducing motor fluctuations such as "off time" in advanced Parkinson's Disease patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson's Disease Drug: Accordion Pill™ Carbidopa/Levodopa Drug: Sinemet® Drug: Placebo -AP-CD/LD Drug: Placebo- Sinemet Phase 3

Detailed Description:
A multi-center, global, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, active-controlled, parallel-group study in adult subjects with fluctuating PD. The study will have 2 open label Titration periods of 6 weeks each prior to the double blind Maintenance period. In the open label periods all patients will be stabilized on the active comparator Sinemet® and then on AP-CD/LD. The double blind Maintenance period will be 13 weeks long.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, in the percentage of daily "Off time" during waking hours [ Time Frame: Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks ]
    Change from Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, in the percentage of daily "Off time" during waking hours based on Hauser Home Diary assessments; Total number of "Off " hours normalized to a 16- hour waking day will also be calculated but only a single p-value applicable to both the percentage and hours will be reported.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, in "On time" without troublesome dyskinesia during waking hours [ Time Frame: Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks ]
  2. Change in the number of total daily LD doses from Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks (hours) [ Time Frame: Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks ]
  3. CGI-I through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, as recorded by physician & patient [ Time Frame: Baseline through through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, ]
  4. Change from Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks, in total UPDRS Score (Sum of Parts I-III) [ Time Frame: Baseline through study completion, an average of 27 weeks ]
