You have been invited to view this page following discussions with our team about the ORCHESTRA Study (Parkinson’s Study) being run at Re:Cognition Health.
Our clinic location is:
45 Queen Anne St, London W1G 9JF
What is the Purpose of the Study?
The purpose of this study is to help determine if UCB0599 can slow the progression (worsening) of PD. Due to the way the study medication works in the brain, it is not expected to provide immediate relief of PD symptoms, but it may be able to delay their start or reduce how bad the symptoms get in the long term by protecting brain cells.
The study medication is an investigational drug, which means that it is still being tested, and has not yet been approved for treatment by any health authorities worldwide. The Sponsor has conducted five clinical studies in healthy elderly people, both with or without PD. It has shown an acceptable safety and tolerability profile for further testing in patients living with PD.
Approximately 450 patients living with PD will take part in this study. The participants will receive treatment with one of two doses of the study medication or placebo (a dummy drug that looks like the study medication but contains no active drug substance).
What if I don’t have confirmed Parkinson’s or just suspected Parkinson’s?
This is totally fine, our screening procedures go through the necessary steps to confirm a Parkinson’s Diagnosis. This will be procedures with a neurologist coupled with state of the art MRI and DaT-SPECT scans
How do I know if I am suitable?
In order to screen we need volunteers to:
- Have a diagnosis within the last 2 years or suspect they have early Parkinson’s Disease (we can help diagnosis
- Not take any Parkinson’s Disease medications longer than 1 month
