Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary objective is to evaluate the safety of pramipexole extended release in patients with Parkinsons disease. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Coprimary endpoints: incidence of adverse events and proportion of withdrawals due to adverse events. [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy; [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Unified Parkinsons Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) Parts I and III scores (change from baseline to end of study of Parts I and III separately); [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical Global Impression of Improvement (CGII) Responder rate (rated at least minimally improved); [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) of patient satisfaction (change from baseline to end of study); [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Morisky Medication Adherence Scale, MMAS-4 Item (change in score from baseline to end of study). [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
