Acorda Therapeutics
This study is a 12-month, open-label, randomized, multicenter study which will evaluate the safety and efficacy of CVT-301 for the treatment of up to 5 OFF episodes per day in Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients experiencing motor fluctuations (OFF episodes) and will include a concurrent observational cohort of PD patients managed using the usual standards of care.

Condition Intervention Phase
Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease Drug: CVT-301 Other: Observational cohort Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 3, Randomized Study Investigating the Safety of CVT-301 (Levodopa Inhalation Powder) in Parkinson's Disease (PD) Patients With Motor Response Fluctuations (OFF Phenomena) Compared to an Observational Cohort Control

Further study details as provided by Acorda Therapeutics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pulmonary safety within the CVT-301 treated patients, assessed by spirometry (forced expiratory volume in 1 second [FEV1], forced vital capacity [FVC] and FEV1/FVC ratio) [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pulmonary safety within the observational (standard of care) cohort, assessed by spirometry FEV1, FVC and FEV1/FVC ratio. [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]
  • Difference between the CVT-301-treated patients and the observational cohort on measures of pulmonary safety [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]
  • Safety of CVT-301 measured by the number of patients with Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]
  • Effect of CVT-301 on mean change in the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Part 4 measures of motor fluctuations (dyskinesias and wearing off) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, at 6 and 12 months ]
  • Occurrence and severity of examiner-rated dyskinesia following CVT-301 treatment of patients experiencing an OFF episode in the clinic [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]
  • Effect of CVT-301 on carbon monoxide diffusing capacity (DLco) [ Time Frame: Over a 12-month period ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   30 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Has signed and dated an Internal Review Board/Independent Ethics Committee (IRB/IEC)-approved informed consent form before any protocol-specific screening procedures are performed.
  • Women of child-bearing potential must use protocol-defined contraceptive measures and must have a negative serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test at screening. These patients must be willing to remain on their current form of contraception for the duration of the study.
  • Patients who have idiopathic PD (i.e., not induced by drugs or other diseases) as defined by fulfilling Steps 1 and 2 of the United Kingdom (UK) Brain Bank criteria, diagnosed after the age of 30 years.
  • Patients who are classified as Stage 1 to 3 (in the ON state) on the modified Hoehn and Yahr scale for staging of PD severity.
  • Patients who have experienced motor fluctuations for a minimum of 2 hours of average daily OFF time per waking day (excluding early morning OFF time) by self-report and confirmed by the PD Diary (on 3 consecutive days) during the screening period.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who have dyskinesia of a severity that would significantly interfere with their ability to participate or perform study procedures.
  • Pregnant or lactating females or females wishing to become pregnant.
  • Patients who have any known contraindication to the use of levodopa (LD), including a history of malignant melanoma or a history of narrow-angle glaucoma.
  • Patients who have had previous surgery for PD (including but not limited to deep brain stimulation [DBS] or cell transplantation).
  • Patients with a history of psychotic symptoms requiring treatment, or suicide ideation or attempt within the prior 12 months.
