No health insurance is required to participate. You will receive all study related care from a specialist physician at no cost. The study will include visits to a clinic in your location.
Participants will receive compensation for participating in the study.
What happens if I Sign Up? We will match you to a study site in your area that needs participants with Parkinson’s disease or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you and you may have the opportunity to participate if qualified.
If you think you might like to participate in the Parkinson’s Disease Study or would like more information, please enter your information below so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the study. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.
Please answer the below questions as though you are the potential study participant.
Potential Study Participant details:
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects neurons in a specific area of the brain called the substantia nigra. This causes symptoms that develop slowly and progressively over years, although people usually experience them differently.
There are a few risk factors known to be associated with Parkinson’s disease, such as:
Parkinson's disease occurs when nerve cells in an area of the brain become impaired and die; in particular, the nerve cells and neurons that control movement are affected with Parkinson's disease.2 Over time, people begin to notice symptoms with their body and movement.
Parkinson’s disease symptoms may be different for everyone. Typically, people notice that the symptoms begin on one side of the body. Symptoms of Parkinson’s may include:
The Parkinson's Disease Study is looking to see how well an investigational medication works in treating the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.
The Parkinson's Disease Study will include various visits to a study clinic in your area and follow up phone calls at designated times.
All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may receive compensation for their time and travel. Participation is entirely voluntary. Even if you decide to take part in this study, you can change your mind about participating at any time.
There is no cost to participate in the Parkinson's Disease Study. If you qualify, the investigational drug, study-related tests, assessments, and visits will be provided to you at no cost. You will receive study-related care throughout the study from a team of professional doctors and nurses at no cost to you.
Volunteers who take part in the studies may be compensated for their time and travel. Please discuss this with the study team when they contact you.
