Background

A recently published research report – conducted by Parkinson’s research advocates and the research team at The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT) – presents an encouraging and useful overview of the current pipeline of agents being clinically tested for the treatment of Parkinson’s. The investigators analysed a large number of clinical trials (145 studies were included in the analysis) – categorising them into the type of drug being tested and the stage of their clinical development – to highlight interesting trends in how the disease is being targeted and to stimulate discussion and engagement between the research and Parkinson’s patient communities. This report represents one of the first classifications and in-depth analysis of the Parkinson’s clinical trials arena.
