Brief Summary:
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of IPX203 (carbidopa and levodopa) extended-release capsules (IPX203 ER CD-LD) in comparison to immediate release (IR) CD-LD in the treatment of CD-LD-experienced subjects with Parkinson's disease (PD) who have motor fluctuations.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson's Disease (Disorder) Drug: IR CD-LD Drug: IPX203 ER CD-LD Other: IPX203 placebo Other: IR CD-LD placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, active-controlled, parallel-group study. The study will consist of a 3-week, open-label IR CD-LD dose adjustment period; a 4-week, open-label period for conversion to IPX203; followed by a 13-week double-blind treatment period with subjects randomized in a 1:1 ratio, stratified by center, to receive either IPX203 (with matching IR CD-LD placebo) or IR CD-LD (with matching IPX203 placebo). Approximately 510 subjects will be enrolled to randomize 420 subjects.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 510 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Multicenter, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, active-controlled, parallel-group study.
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: Double dummy, blinded drug
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Controlled Study to Compare the Safety and Efficacy of IPX203 With Immediate-Release Carbidopa-Levodopa in Parkinson's Disease Patients With Motor Fluctuations

Drug: IR CD-LD
Active comparator - IR CD-LD
Other Name: Generic for Sinemet tablets

Drug: IPX203 ER CD-LD
Investigational formulation - ER CD-LD

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in "Good on" time [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in "Good on" time in hours per day, at the end of double-blind treatment period. "Good on" time is defined as the sum of "On" time without dyskinesia and "On" time with nontroublesome dyskinesia.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in "Off" time [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in "Off" time in hours per day, at the end of double-blind treatment period.

  2. Patients with "much improved" or "very much improved" on PGI-C [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Proportion of subjects with either "much improved" or "very much improved" in Patient Global Impression of Change (PGI-C) scores at the end of double-blind treatment period.

  3. Change in MDS-UPSDRS Part III [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in the MDS-UPDRS Part III at the end of double-blind treatment period.

  4. Change in MDS-UPDRS Parts II and III [ Time Frame: 13 weeks ]
    Change from baseline in the sum of MDS-UPDRS Parts II and III at the end of double-blind treatment period.

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female subjects diagnosed at age ≥ 40 years with PD, consistent with the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society Brain Bank Diagnostic Criteria and who are being treated with stable regimens of CD-LD but experiencing motor fluctuations.
  • Able to provide written informed consent prior to the conduct of any study-specific procedures.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential must have a negative urine pregnancy test at Screening Visit.
  • Negative urine screen for drugs of abuse and negative alcohol breath test at Screening.
  • Hoehn and Yahr Stages 1, 2, 3, or 4 in the "On" state (part of Movement Disorders Society version of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale [MDS-UPDRS] Part III)
  • Agrees to use a medically acceptable method of contraception throughout the study and for 6 weeks after completing the study. Medically acceptable methods of contraception that may be used by the subject and/or partner include but are not limited to: abstinence, oral contraception, NuvaRing or transdermal systems, diaphragm with vaginal spermicide, intrauterine device, condom and partner using vaginal spermicide, surgical sterilization (6 months), progestin implant or injection, or postmenopausal female (no menstrual period for ˃ 2 years) or vasectomy (˃ 6 months).
  • Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score ≥ 24 at Screening Visit in "On" state.
  • Able to differentiate "On" state from "Off" state as determined by at least 75% concordance with a trained rater in "On/Off" ratings for 8 ratings over a 4-hour training period. The concordance must include at least 1 "On" and 1 "Off" rating and must be achieved within two 4-hour training sessions.
