Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please no advertisers. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

First Patient Enrolled in Phase 2 Clinical Study Evaluating JZP-110 for Excessive Sleepiness in Parkinson’s Disease

February 22, 2017


Jazz Pharmaceuticals plc announced that the first patient has been enrolled in a Phase 2 clinical study evaluating JZP-110, a selective dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, as a potential treatment for excessive sleepiness (ES) in adult patients with Parkinson’s disease. The clinical study will be conducted across approximately 15 centers in the United States.
“Excessive sleepiness is a debilitating symptom of Parkinson’s disease, and we are interested in determining whether the wake-promoting effects of JZP-110 could be beneficial in this patient population,” says Karen Smith, MD, PhD, global head of research and development and chief medical officer of Jazz Pharmaceuticals, in a release. “The initiation of this study is another step forward in our development program for JZP-110 and our efforts to develop new treatment options for people with sleep disorders.”
The Phase 2 study is a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, multicenter, crossover study evaluating the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of JZP-110 in adult patients with Parkinson’s disease and ES. The study is expected to enroll approximately 50 patients.
JZP-110 is a selective dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (DNRI) in late-stage development for treatment of ES in adult patients with narcolepsy or obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Jazz Pharmaceuticals has worldwide development, manufacturing, and commercialization rights to JZP-110, excluding certain jurisdictions in Asia. JZP-110 has orphan drug designation in the United States for narcolepsy. The JZP-110 Phase 3 clinical program includes two studies evaluating ES in adult patients with OSA, one study evaluating ES in adult patients with narcolepsy and an open label long-term safety study. Patient enrollment in the OSA and narcolepsy studies is complete and enrollment in the open-label study is ongoing.
