Detailed Description

This is a multicenter, open-label, long-term, phase 3 study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of long-term administration of TVP-1012 at 1 mg with levodopa in Japanese participants with Parkinson's disease.

The study period consisted of a 2-week run-in period and a subsequent 52-week treatment period. Participants fulfilling the inclusion criteria and did not meet any of the exclusion criteria at the start of the run-in period (Week -2) and also at the end of the run-in period (Week 0) were enrolled in the study, and received 1 mg of TVP-1012 once daily for 52 weeks, in an unblinded manner, from the day after Week 0.

Interventions

  • Drug: TVP-1012 1mg
    • TVP-1012 1mg Tablets

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Experimental: TVP-1012 1mg
    • TVP-1012 1 mg once daily orally, either before or after breakfast, concomitantly with levodopa tablet for 52 weeks as treatment period after 2 weeks of run-in period.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • Number of Participants Who Experience at Least One Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs)
    • Time Frame: Up to Week 52

Secondary Measures

  • Number of Participants With TEAE Related to Clinical Laboratory Tests
    • Time Frame: Up to Week 52
  • Number of Participants With Markedly Abnormal Vital Signs Values
    • Time Frame: Up to Week 52
  • Number of Participants With TEAE Related to Electrocardiograms (ECG)
    • Time Frame: Up to Week 52
  • Number of Participants With TEAE Related to Body Weight (Weight Decreased)
    • Time Frame: Up to Week 52
  • Change From Baseline in Movement Disorder Society-Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) Part II Total Score
    • Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 (LOCF)
    • Movement Disorder Society-sponsored revision of the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) retained the four-scale structure with a reorganization of the various subscales; (Part I) non-motor experiences of daily living (13 items), (Part II) motor experiences of daily living (13 items), (Part III) motor examination (33 scores based on 18 items), and (Part IV) motor complications (6 items). Each items had 0-4 ratings, where 0 = normal, 1 = slight, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate, and 4 = severe. The scale range for Part II Total Score was 0-52, with higher scores reflecting greater severity.
  • Change From Baseline in MDS-UPDRS Part III Total Score
    • Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 (LOCF)
    • Movement Disorder Society-sponsored revision of the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) retained the four-scale structure with a reorganization of the various subscales; (Part I) non-motor experiences of daily living (13 items), (Part II) motor experiences of daily living (13 items), (Part III) motor examination (33 scores based on 18 items), and (Part IV) motor complications (6 items). Each items had 0-4 ratings, where 0 = normal, 1 = slight, 2 = mild, 3 = moderate, and 4 = severe. The scale range for Part III Total Score was 0-132, with higher scores reflecting greater severity.
  • Change From Baseline to Week 52 (LOCF) in Mean Daily OFF-time
    • Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 (LOCF)
    • Off-time refers to times when levodopa is not working well, causing worsening symptoms.
