Clinical research study on Cogane is looking for research participants


#1
Researchers are looking for people with early stage Parkinson's to take part in an international study that is testing a new investigational drug called Cogane.

If you are aged 35 to 75 years old and have not yet started any Parkinson's treatments, you may be eligible to take part. The study is funded by the pharmaceutical company Phytopharm plc.

About the study
This is a phase II, randomised, placebo controlled study to test whether Cogane is of therapeutic benefit in people with early stage Parkinson's. The study is comparing the safety, tolerability and efficacy of three doses of Cogane and placebo when taken for 28 weeks.

More information about Cogane is found here:
