Dr. Rohit Dhall,  to present at
San Diego Movement Disorder
Conference

Dr. Dhall remarks, “I’m honored to be invited to present at this conference regarding the findings we have discovered through clinical trials conducted on the evaluation of the efficacy of IPX066 in advanced Parkinson’s disease patients, specifically the group with troublesome dyskinesia before switching to IPX066. IPX066 was administered for 13 weeks in a double-blind, parallel group study vs. immediate release CD-LD (IR) in advanced PD patients. We found that advanced PD patients with troublesome dyskinesia randomized to IPX066 demonstrated a significantly greater improvement in motor disability measures without worsening of dyskinesia when compared to CD-LD IR.” Log onto the event website for additional information: http://www.mdscongress2015.org/Congress-2015.htm.

About the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center

Two and a half decades ago, Dr. J. William Langston and a dedicated group of Parkinson’s disease experts set out to create a better way to research and provide care for Parkinson’s disease. Patients would become partners in developing their care plans, improving their quality of life, and discovering new strategies to confront and manage their disease. Compassionate care would work hand in hand with cutting-edge research to seek answers, develop new therapies and treatments, and ultimately work toward a cure. The result was the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center—based in Sunnyvale, California—America’s only independent non-profit organization combining world-class care, clinical research, laboratory research, and clinical trials for Parkinson’s disease under one roof. The Institute focuses on areas including: biomarker discovery and clinical research; translational research on genetic forms of Parkinson’s; a world class LRRK2 research and drug discovery program (LRRK2 is the most common cause of familial or inherited Parkinson’s disease); stem cell modeling referred to as “Parkinson’s disease in a Petri dish”; and clinical trials and research on the non-motor or non-movement related and early features of Parkinson’s.
