Clinical Trials for Mirapex

Trial ID Title Status Sponsor Phase Summary
NCT00025792 Clinical Trial of Pramipexole in Bipolar Depression Completed National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Phase 2 The purpose of this study is to examine the safety and effectiveness of the drug pramipexole given in combination with lithium or divalproex for the short-term treatment of acute depression in patients with bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a severe, chronic, and often life-threatening illness. Treatments for acute unipolar depression have been extensively researched. However, despite the availability of a wide range of antidepressant drugs, a significant proportion of depressed patients fail to respond to first-line antidepressant treatment. Novel and improved therapeutics for bipolar depression are needed. This study will evaluate the antidepressant properties of pramipexole. This study will be conducted in three phases. Phase 1 is a 14-day washout period in which participants will be tapered off all their psychiatric medicines except divalproex or lithium. Participants will also be asked to adhere to a low caffeine and low monoamine diet. During Phase 2, participants will be randomly assigned to receive either pramipexole or placebo (an inactive pill) for 6 weeks. Participants who respond to treatment will be given either open-label pramipexole or another clinical treatment. Participants will be screened with a medical history, physical examination, electrocardiogram (EKG), blood and urine tests, and a psychiatric evaluation. Women of childbearing potential will have a pregnancy test. Participants will have a physical exam and EKG at study entry and study completion. Blood will be drawn at various times throughout the study. Pulse and blood pressure measurements will be taken daily. Weekly interviews will be conducted. Participants and a control group of healthy volunteers will undergo positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the brain.
NCT00040209 JP-1730 to Treat Parkinson's Disease Completed National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Phase 2 This study will evaluate the effects of an experimental drug called JP-1730 on Parkinson's disease symptoms and on dyskinesias (involuntary movements) that develop as a result of long-term treatment with levodopa. JP-1730 affects chemical messengers believed to affect Parkinson's disease symptoms. Patients between 30 and 80 years of age with relatively advanced Parkinson's disease may be eligible for this 3-phase study. - Phase 1 - Baseline evaluation Participants will be evaluated with a medical history, physical examination, detailed neurologic evaluation, routine blood tests, urinalysis and an electrocardiogram. They will also have a 24-hour holter monitor (heart monitoring) and cardiology consultation. A chest X-ray and MRI or CT scan of the brain will be done if needed. Patients will, if possible, stop taking all antiparkinsonian medications except levodopa (Sinemet) for one month before the study begins and throughout its duration. (If necessary, patients may use short-acting dopamine agonists, such as Mirapex and Requip.) - Phase 2 - Dose Finding Phase For 2 to 3 days, patients will be admitted to the NIH Clinical Center for a levodopa (a dopamine agonist) dose-finding procedure. For this procedure, patients stop taking Sinemet and instead have levodopa, and subsequently apomorphine, infused through a vein. During the infusions, the drug dose is increased slowly until either 1) parkinsonian symptoms improve, 2) unacceptable side effects occur, or 3) the maximum study dose is reached. Symptoms are monitored frequently to find the optimal dose. (Patients who have had dosing infusions in the last 3 months will not have to undergo this phase of the study.) - Phase 3 - Active Study Phase Within 3 months of the dose-finding phase, treatment will begin. Patients will receive seven doses of JD-1730 or placebo (an inactive substance) via puffs from an oral spray together with levodopa infusions over a 3-week period. The doses are given on days 1, 2, and 3 of the first week and then approximately twice a week for the next 2 weeks. For these doses, patients are hospitalized 4 days the first week and 2 days each for the next 2 weeks. All participants will receive placebo at some time during the study, and a few patients, selected at random, will receive only placebo the entire 3 weeks. The procedure for the infusions is the same as that for the dose-finding phase, with frequent evaluation of symptoms. Also, small blood samples are drawn up to three times each study day. At the end of the third week, patients will be discharged from the hospital. Their anti-parkinsonian medications may be readjusted, as needed. Patients will be contacted 2 weeks after the end of the study for a check on side effects and, if necessary, will be scheduled for a follow-up evaluation at the clinic. In addition to the above procedures, patients will be asked to have an optional lumbar a puncture (spinal tap) on the first and last days of the study to measure various brain chemicals and drug levels that cannot be measured in blood and urine. For this procedure, a local anesthetic is given and a needle is inserted in the space between the bones (vertebrae) in the lower back. About 2 tablespoons of fluid is collected through the needle.
NCT00076674 Levetiracetam Treatment of L-dopa Induced Dyskinesias Completed National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Phase 2 This study will evaluate the effects of levetiracetam (Keppra (Trademark) on Parkinson's disease symptoms and on dyskinesias (involuntary movements) that develop as a result of long-term treatment with levodopa. Levetiracetam blocks certain protein receptors on brain cells and thus can change the spread of brain signals believed to be affected in patients with Parkinson's disease. Patients between 30 and 80 years of age with relatively advanced Parkinson's disease and dyskinesias due to levodopa therapy may be eligible for this 6-week study. Screening and baseline evaluation - Participants are evaluated with a medical history, physical examination and neurologic evaluation, blood tests, urinalysis, electrocardiogram (EKG), 24-hour holter monitor (heart monitoring), and cardiology consultation. A chest x-ray and MRI or CT scan of the brain are done if needed. If possible, patients stop taking all antiparkinsonian medications except levodopa (Sinemet) for one month (2 months if taking Selegiline) before the study begins and throughout its duration. (If necessary, patients may use short-acting agents, such as Mirapex, Requip or Amantadine.) Dose-finding phase - Patients are admitted to the NIH Clinical Center for 2 to 3 days for a levodopa "dose-finding" procedure. For this test, patients stop taking Sinemet and instead have levodopa infused through a vein. During the infusions, the drug dose is increased slowly until parkinsonian symptoms improve or unacceptable side effects occur or the maximum study dose is reached. Symptoms are monitored frequently. (Patients who have had dosing infusions in the last 3 months do not have to undergo this phase of the study.) Active study phase - Patients are randomly assigned to take levetiracetam or placebo ("sugar pill") twice a day for 6 weeks. At the end of weeks 1, 2 4, and 5, patients come to the clinic for blood tests, an EKG, and a review of adverse side effects. At the end of weeks 3 and 6, patients are hospitalized to study the response to treatment. They again stop taking Sinemet and selegiline and their ability to perform motor tasks is evaluated. They are then placed on an L-dopa infusion for 10 hours. Placebo may be infused at various times instead of L-dopa. Motor symptoms are evaluated several times during the infusion. Blood is drawn once during the infusion for research studies. Lumbar puncture - Patients undergo a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) at the end of weeks 1 and 4 to measure certain brain chemicals and drug levels. For this test, a local anesthetic is given and a needle is inserted in the space between the vertebrae in the lower back. About 2 tablespoons of fluid is collected through the needle. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - Patients with changing disease activity may undergo MRIs at baseline, at the end of week 1 and at the end of the study to show changes in the brain. The patient lies in a narrow cylinder (the scanner) that uses radio waves and a magnetic field to produce images of the brain, which show structural and chemical changes. Follow-up - 2 weeks after the study ends, patients are contacted by phone for a review of side effects or they return to the clinic for an evaluation.
