IPX066 (extended-release carbidopa-levodopa [ER CD-LD]) is an oral extended-release capsule formulation of carbidopa and levodopa. The single-dose pharmacokinetics of ER CD-LD (as 2 capsules; total dose, 97.5 mg-390 mg CD-LD) versus immediate-release (IR) CD-LD (25 mg-100 mg), sustained-release (CR) CD-LD (25 mg-100 mg), and CD-LD-entacapone (25 mg-100 mg-200 mg) was evaluated in healthy subjects. Following IR dosing, LD reached peak concentrations (Cmax ) at 1 hour; LD concentrations then… CONTINUE READING
