Levodopa-Carbidopa Intestinal Gel (LCIG) Investigational Treatment For Advanced Parkinson's Disease

Post  Admin on Fri Jun 10, 2011 9:31 am

Abbott Reports Interim Results From Phase III Open-Label Study Of Investigational Treatment For Advanced Parkinson's Disease

Interim efficacy and safety results from a long-term, 54-week, Phase III open-label study of Abbott's investigational treatment for advanced Parkinson's disease showed that patients treated with levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) for 12 weeks reported a decrease in "off" time and an increase in "on" time without troublesome dyskinesias. The results were reported at the International Congress of Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders in Toronto.

LCIG is administered via a surgically-implanted tube connected to a portable pump that delivers the medication directly to the small intestine, where it is then absorbed into the bloodstream, providing a continuous delivery of medication.
