    Reuters: Press Release

  • Results from the ASCEND-Parkinson's Disease (ASCEND -PD) study showed a 33.5% decrease in "off-time" in the IPX066 arm compared to a 10% decrease in the carbidopa-levodopa plus entacapone (CLE) arm.

  • The companies said that IPX066 demonstrated statistically significant improvement over carbidopa-levodopa plus entacapone in reducing the percentage of "off time" during waking hours.

  • The Company is also conducting the ASCEND-PD comparative study of IPX066 and carbidopa-levodopa and entacapone, and an Open-Label Extension study for subjects from the ADVANCE-PD and APEX-PD studies is also ongoing.

  • The addition of entacapone to carbidopa/levodopa has been shown to lead to a greater degree of improvement in some of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease than treatment with carbidopa/levodopa alone.
