BACKGROUND In advanced Parkinson disease (PD), immediate-release pramipexole, taken 3 times daily, improves symptoms and quality of life. A once-daily extended-release formulation may be an effective and simple alternative therapy. METHODS For a multicenter randomized, double-blind, parallel trial of extended- and immediate-release pramipexole vs placebo,(More)
The aim of this article is to test the feasibility, in early Parkinson's disease (PD), of an overnight switch from immediate-release (IR) pramipexole to a new once-daily extended-release (ER) formulation. Nonfluctuating patients on pramipexole IR three-times daily, alone or with levodopa, for early PD were randomly switched overnight to double-blind IR(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the clinical efficacy of a novel once-daily extended-release (ER) formulation of the dopamine agonist pramipexole as monotherapy in patients with early Parkinson disease (PD) and establish its noninferiority vs standard immediate-release (IR) pramipexole. METHODS This was a multicenter, double-blind, parallel study of patients with(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of three daily dosages of the triple monoamine reuptake inhibitor NS 2330 (tesofensine) compared to placebo as monotherapy in early Parkinson's disease (PD). In MPTP (1-methyl 4-phenyl-tetrahydropyridine 1,2,3,6)-lesioned marmosets, dopamine reuptake inhibitors have been demonstrated to(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pramipexole extended release (ER) administered once daily in early Parkinson's disease (PD). Pramipexole immediate release (IR) administered three times daily (TID) is an efficacious and generally well-tolerated treatment for PD. A pramipexole ER formulation is now available. We(More)
BACKGROUND Several clinical and experimental lines of evidence suggest that leucotriene B4 (LTB4), an arachidonic acid derivative with potent proinflammatory properties, plays a key role in the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of BIIL 284, an oral long-acting LTB4 receptor antagonist, as(More)
OBJECTIVES In a previous study, we determined the costs over 6 months to the French public health insurance system of Hylan GF-20 (Synvisc) in 66 patients with knee osteoarthritis. Here, we compared the medicoeconomic benefits over 9 months in 506 patients given Hylan GF-20 or conventional treatment for knee osteoarthritis. PATIENTS AND METHODS This(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the safety and efficacy of tesofensine, a triple monoamine reuptake inhibitor, in patients with advanced Parkinson disease (PD). DESIGN A pilot phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial. The study occurred in hospital-based outpatient clinics and in clinical trial units. Patients with advanced PD and(More)
