Brief Summary:
This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of multiple ascending iv doses of MEDI341 in male and female subjects with Parkinson's Disease.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson's Disease Drug: MEDI1341 Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study will include up to 3 cohorts, with 12 subjects in each, for a total of up to 36 randomised subjects.

The study comprises a screening period of up to 49 days, an 8-week double-blind treatment period, and a 13-week follow-up period. Each subject will receive three 60 minute iv infusions of MEDI1341 or placebo during the 8-week treatment period, with 4 weeks between infusions. The overall study duration (enrolment, treatment, and follow-up periods) will be up to 28 weeks per subject.

A Dose Escalation Committee will review data from each cohort to allow progression to the next higher dose cohort in the study.

Inclusion criteria:

  1. Subjects must be aged 40 to 85 years, inclusive, on the day of randomization.
  2. Meet criteria for a diagnosis of mild-to-moderate idiopathic PD according to the United Kingdom Parkinson's Disease Society Brain Bank criteria (Hughes et al 1992)
  3. PD should be stage 1 to 3 using the Hoehn and Yahr scale as modified (Goetz et al 2004).
  4. Subjects receiving medications for PD should have been on a stable dosing regimen of their medication(s) for ≥ 1 month before randomization, with no expectation of a need to change the medications or dosing regimen for the duration of the study, barring unforeseen circumstances. (For subjects who are not currently receiving medications to treat PD, there should be no expectation of a need to initiate these for the duration of the study).
  5. Subjects must have a body weight of 45 to 120 kg, inclusive, and a body mass index of 18 to 34 kg/m2, inclusive at screening and at check-in for the first infusion.
  6. Subjects may be male or female. Female subjects must of non-childbearing potential (postmenopausal and/or surgically sterile.
  7. Postmenopausal women must have had ≥ 12 months of spontaneous amenorrhea (with a follicle-stimulating hormone [FSH] concentration ≥ 26 mIU/mL in women ≤ 60 years of age; women > 60 years of age do not require an FSH test) and must have had a negative serum pregnancy test result at screening.

    Surgically sterile women are defined as those who have had a hysterectomy, bilateral ovariectomy (oophorectomy), salpingectomy, or bilateral tubal ligation. Women who are surgically sterile must provide documentation of the procedure by an operative report, ultrasound, or other verifiable medical documentation.

  8. Men who are biologically capable of fathering children must agree and commit to use an adequate form of double-barrier contraception for the duration of the treatment period and for 5 half lives (100 days) after the last administration of study intervention. A male subject is considered capable of fathering children even if his sexual partner is sterile or using contraceptives.

    Men who are biologically capable of fathering children must also agree to refrain from sperm donation for the duration of the treatment period and for 5 half-lives or 90 days (whichever is longer) after the last administration of study intervention.

  9. Subjects must, in the investigator's opinion, understand the nature of the study and must provide signed and dated written informed consent before the conduct of any study-related procedures.
  10. Subjects must, in the opinion of the investigator, be able to participate in all scheduled evaluations, likely to be compliant, and likely to complete all required tests, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans and lumbar punctures (LPs). (Note: The investigator should assess the physical and functional needs of the subject at screening, as participation in the study may be contingent upon the availability and willingness of a caregiver to attend with the subject at all study visits.)
  11. Subjects must be able to read, write, and speak fluently in English and/or Spanish.
  12. Subjects must agree not to post any personal medical data related to the study or information related to the study on any website or social media site (eg, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) until the study has been completed.
  13. Subjects must have a MoCA total score of ≥ 24.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. In the opinion of the investigator, a recent clinically significant illness (other than PD), infection, medical/surgical procedure, or significant trauma within 30 days prior to screening, or between screening and randomization, that is likely to deteriorate, compromise the subject's safety or ability to complete the study, or compromise the interpretation of the study results
  2. Presence of a serious or unstable clinically significant illness, including hepatic, renal, gastroenterologic, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrinologic, immunologic or autoimmune disease (eg, multiple sclerosis), hematologic or other major disease, which, in the judgment of the investigator, is poorly controlled or otherwise likely to deteriorate, compromise the subject's safety or ability to complete the study, or compromise the interpretation of the study results

  6. History of epilepsy or seizures, except febrile childhood seizures
  7. History of transient ischemic attack or stroke or any unexplained loss of consciousness within 1 year prior to screening or between screening and randomization
  8. Presence of any psychiatric disorder according to the criteria of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-V; APA 2013) or symptom if, in the judgment of the investigator, the psychiatric disorder or symptom is likely to confound interpretation of the study results, affect motor function assessment, or affect the subject's ability to complete the study
  9. A diagnosis of intellectual disability (intellectual developmental disorder) or mental retardation, or significant inherited cognitive impairment
  10. Suicidality, represented by answering "yes" to Question 4 or Question 5 on the C SSRS, indicating active suicidal ideation with any intent to act, during the subject's lifetime, as assessed at screening, or between screening and randomization

Other immunosuppressive drugs are contraindicated.

    (vii) Mature cataracts (Grade ≥4 per the Lens Opacities Classification System III) or lower grade cataracts that are otherwise considered by the examining ophthalmologist to prevent adequate examination of the uveal tract or posterior ocular segment.
