Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To establish the efficacy of 20 mg/d and 40mg/d doses of istradefylline for reducing the percentage of OFF time in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) treated with levodopa/DCI.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the efficacy of 20 mg/d and 40mg/d dose of istradefylline for reducing the total hours of OFF time.
  • To evaluate the change in percentage of ON time (without dyskinesia, with dyskinesia, with non-troublesome dyskinesia, and with troublesome dyskinesia).
  • To evaluate the change in Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS).
  • To evaluate change in the Clinical Global Impression - Improvement scale (CGI-I).
  • To evaluate change in the Clinical Global Impression - Severity of Illness scale (CGI-S).
  • To evaluate the safety of 20 mg/d and 40mg/d doses of istradefylline.

Detailed Description:

To establish the efficacy of 20 mg/d and 40mg/d doses of istradefylline for reducing the percentage of OFF time in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD) treated with levodopa. Patients who meet entry criteria will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to double blind treatment with oral doses of 20 or 40mg/d istradefylline or matching placebo. Patients will be treated for 12 weeks and will have interim visits and end of treatment visit to assess the efficacy and safety of istradefylline.
