About This clinical research study

We are currently conducting a study to test a medication for people with Parkinson’s Disease Dementia (sometimes called Parkinson’s Dementia).

What is Parkinson’s Disease Dementia? It is a decline in thinking and reasoning that develops in many people living with Parkinson’s at least a year after diagnosis.

The research team at MAC Clinical Research are conducting a trial to study an existing medication to see if the treatment may help with cognition, for example with attention, remembering, thinking and problem-solving, in the hope that it may be repurposed as a potential new treatment for Parkinson’s dementia.

People living with Parkinson’s dementia often experience changes in concentration, attention, alertness, and wakefulness from day to day and sometimes throughout the day. His or her flow of ideas may be disorganized, unclear, or illogical at times. The person may seem better one day, then worse the next day. Researchers are investigating this treatment for Parkinson’s dementia, in the hope that it may help with some of these symptoms.

Developing a brand-new medicine takes an enormous amount of time, money and effort. Getting a promising new medication into an approved medication can take around 14 years. It is crucial to advance strategies to reduce this time frame and improve success rates and medicine repurposing is one such strategy (sometimes called drug repositioning).

Medication approved for other conditions have already been tested in people, so detailed information is available on their safety. Because repurposing builds upon previous research and development efforts, new therapies could be ready for large clinical trials quickly, speeding up their integration into health care.

ABOUT CLINICAL RESEARCH STUDIES

Clinical research studies are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research studies make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a drug, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, or to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

If the study is successful, it may be an important step towards developing a promising new treatment.
