Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of Adverse Events, Adverse Drug Reactions, Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: during 18 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The aim of this Post Marketing Surveillance (PMS) was to obtain safety data in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients without concomitant use of levodopa for 3 years. Therefore these items were considered as a safety evaluation.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical Global Impression of Improvement [ Time Frame: after 36 months treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Investigators evaluation of the PD symptoms on a rating scale of 5 categories (very much improved, much improved, minimally improved, no effect, and unassessable).

  • Change From Baseline in UPDRS (Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale) Part III Total Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 36 months (or at the time of discontinuation) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Motor examination is assessed by 27 questionnaire items in UPDRS Part III section. Each item is scored from 0 (best) to 4 (worst), and the total score of UPDRS Part III is from 0 (best) to 108 (worst). A decrease in the score means improvement.

  • Change From Baseline in Modified Hoehn & Yahr Rating Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline and at 36 months (or at the time of discontinuation) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A severity of PD symptom are assessed by Modified Hoehn & Yahr rating scale. This scale consist of 10 levels including additional evaluation levels defined in Japan. Ten levels are decribed by 0 (best), 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5 (worst).
