- Primary objective: Determine if NR has an impact on the neurometabolic profile of patients with PD as measured by [18F]Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET).
- Secondary objective: Determine whether high dose oral NR improves motor symptoms associated with PD.
- Tertiary objectives: determine whether high dose oral NR rectifies NAD metabolism and increases NAD levels in body fluids and muscle tissue.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Parkinson Disease Neurodegenerative Diseases||Dietary Supplement: Nicotinamide Riboside Other: Placebo||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||30 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||After initial assessment at baseline, the participants will be randomly assigned (1:1) to one of two study groups (n = 15 per group): NR 500 mg x 2/day, or placebo. Participants and investigators will be masked to treatment group.|
|Masking:||Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)|
|Masking Description:||All participants and investigators will be masked.|
|Primary Purpose:||Basic Science|

- PDRP changes from NR use [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]The primary outcome will be the between-group difference in Parkinson's disease related pattern (PDRP) measured by FDG-PET comparing baseline and 3-4 week follow-up measurement.
- Motoric change of symptoms from NR use [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]Clinical changes measured by MDS-UPDRS from using NR
- Determine whether high dose oral NR rectifies NAD metabolism in body fluids and muscle tissue. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]To measure NAD a liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry will be use (abrv platform for method is LC-MS/MS.) We are interested in change of value of NAD. There is to our knowledge no measured NAD levels of PD patients. See PMID: 29184669 for the same method that we will use.
