An Open-Label Extension Trial to Assess the Safety of Long-Term Treatment of Rotigotine in Early-Stage Parkinson's Disease
The objective of this open-label extension is to assess the safety and tolerability of long-term treatment of the rotigotine patch in subjects with early-stage idiopathic Parkinson's disease
|Study Design:||Endpoint Classification: Safety Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||An Open-Label Extension to the Double-Blind SP513 Trial to Assess the Safety of Long-Term Treatment of Rotigotine in Subjects With Early-Stage Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease|
- Number of Subjects With at Least One Adverse Event During This Open-label Extension Study [ Time Frame: six years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Adverse events are any untoward medical occurrences in a subject administered study treatment, whether or not these events are related to treatment.
- Number of Subjects Who Withdrew From the Trial Due to an Adverse Event [ Time Frame: six years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Adverse events are any untoward medical occurrences in a subject administered study treatment, whether or not these events are related to treatment.
- Mean Epworth Sleepiness Scale Score During the Open-label Extension [ Time Frame: Visit 10 (end of year 1), Visit 14 (end of year 2), Visit 18 (end of year 3), Visit 22 (end of year 4), Visit 26 (end of year 5), Visit 30 (end of year 6), End of Treatment (last study visit or early withdrawal visit) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) is a self-administered questionnaire with 8 questions. The total ESS score is the sum of 8 item-scores and can range between 0 and 24. The higher the score, the higher the person's level of daytime sleepiness.
