WHAT WE’RE LEARNING
Research Projects and Clinical Studies
Have you recently been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease?
If so, you may be eligible to participate in a clinical research study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an investigational medication for Parkinson’s disease symptoms. The investigational medication is composed of a combination of two currently approved drugs for Parkinson’s disease in low doses.
The study involves taking once-daily study medications and includes 7 visits to the study center during approximately 14 to 18 weeks.
You may qualify to participate in the study if:
• You were recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease
• You are between the ages 35 and 80
• Have not been taking other Parkinson’s disease medication for more than 4 weeks
Qualified participants will receive at no cost:
• Investigational medication(s)
• Study related medical care by Parkinson’s disease researchers
• Medical and physical examinations
• Laboratory tests
If you are interested in participating and would like more information, please contact:

Parkinson’s Disease Research Opportunities
- Do you have PD and are currently on Sinemet and experience “off” time when your medications are not working to control your symptoms?
- Have you been diagnosed with Parkinson’s but have not started taking any Parkinson’s medication
- Do you have PD and are experiencing lightheadedness or dizziness.
If you answered “Yes” to any of the above questions, you may qualify for one of the clinical research trials being conducted by Lawrence Elmer MD, PhD/ Molly Scott CNP and the research team at the Gardner-McMaster Parkinson Center.
