Efficacy and Safety of Memantine for Parkinson's Disease Dementia (PDD) and Dementia With Lewy Bodies (DLB)
A Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Multicentre Trial of Memantine in Patients With Parkinson's Disease Dementia or Dementia With Lewy Bodies

A 24-week placebo-controlled parallel group multicentre trial to study the safety and efficacy of memantine in patients with dementia associated with Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies. It is hypothesized that memantine will be safe and well tolerated, and more effective than placebo.
