Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in the Non-Motor Symptoms Scale (NMSS) Total Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Examine the effect of Levodopa-Carbidopa Intestinal Gel (LCIG) relative to that of Optimized Medical Treatment (OMT) on non-motor symptoms associated with advanced Parkinson's Disease (PD) as assessed by the Non-Motor Symptoms Scale (NMSS) Total Score

  • Change in the Modified Parkinson's Disease Sleep Scale (PDSS-2) Total Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Examine the effect of Levodopa-Carbidopa Intestinal Gel (LCIG) relative to that of Optimized Medical Treatment (OMT) on non-motor symptoms associated with advanced Parkinson's Disease (PD) as assessed by the Modified Parkinson's Disease Sleep Scale (PDSS-2) Total Score

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    An investigator-used rating tool to follow the longitudinal course of Parkinson's disease

  • Change in Clinical Global Impression of Change (CGI-C) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Clinician's rating scale for assessing Global Improvement or Change

  • Change in Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    7-point response scale

  • Change in Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-8) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Disease-specific instrument designed to measure aspects of health that are relevant to subjects with PD, and which may not be included in general health status questionnaires.

  • Change in Parkinson's Anxiety Scale (PAS) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Scale developed specifically to measure severity in anxiety in Parkinson's Disease

    A short, self-report reliable and valid screening instrument for depression in the elderly

  • Change in King's PD Pain Scale Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Clinical PD specific pain scale developed with a focus on sub classification of nociceptive pain and neuropathic pain

  • Change in Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    Screening tool to assess mild cognitive impairment in the general population, often used in clinical settings to study cognition in PD

  • Change in Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) Score [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]

  • Change in 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    ECGs will be recorded after laying down for at least 5 minutes and will be recorded while completely stationary, without talking, laughing, deep breathing or swallowing during the time of recording.

  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    All negative changes in health during the study will be treated and recorded during the study.

  • Minnesota Impulsive Disorders Interview (MIDI) [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]
    The MIDI is used to monitor for development of intense impulsive behavior.

  • Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: Week 0-26 ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years to 99 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Participant(s) must have a diagnosis of idiopathic Parkinson's disease according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society (UKPDS) Brain Bank Criteria.
  2. Participant(s) demonstrates persistent motor fluctuations in spite of individually optimized treatment.
  3. The participant's Parkinson's disease is levodopa-responsive.
  4. Participant(s) has had optimized treatment with available anti-PD medication and their motor symptoms are judged inadequately controlled on this optimized treatment. Optimized treatment is defined as the maximum therapeutic effect obtained with pharmacological antiparkinsonian therapies when no further improvement is expected regardless of any additional manipulations of levodopa and/or other antiparkinsonian medication. This will be based on the Investigator's clinical judgment.
  5. Male or female participant(s) must be at least 30 years of age.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Participant's PD diagnosis is unclear or there is a suspicion that the subject has a parkinsonian syndrome such as secondary parkinsonism (e.g. caused by drugs, toxins, infectious agents, vascular disease, trauma, brain neoplasm), parkinson-plus syndrome (e.g. Multiple System Atrophy, Progressive supranuclear Palsy, Diffuse Lewy Body disease) or other neurodegenerative disease that might mimic the symptoms of PD.
  2. Participant(s) has undergone neurosurgery for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
  3. Known hypersensitivity to levodopa, carbidopa or radiopaque material.
  4. Participant(s) has contraindications to levodopa (e.g. narrow angle glaucoma, malignant melanoma).
  5. Participant(s) experiencing clinically significant sleep attacks or clinically significant impulsive behavior (e.g. pathological gambling, hypersexuality) at any point during the three months prior to the Screening evaluation as judged by the Principal Investigator.
