To compare the efficacy of BF2.649 over placebo (12 week Double-Blind Phase) and assess the long term safety and the efficacy maintenance(9 months Open-Label Extension Phase) of BF2.649 in the improvement of excessive daytime sleepiness in patients diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease.
As measured by the change from baseline in the Epworth Scale Scores (ESS) at Week 12 and at Week 51, in patients diagnosed with EDS in Parkinson's Disease.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
BF2.649, Placebo of BF2.649
Published on BioPortfolio: 2014-08-27T03:17:07-0400
This phase 2b study is designed as multicentre, multinational, randomized, double blind, parallel group and placebo controlled with three doses of Bavisant (0.5, 1, and 3 mg/d) in subjects...
Histaminergic agents are known to be involved with the sleep/wake cycle. This compound is a histaminergic agent which therefore may improve alertness and awakeness in patients with excess...
The objective of this trial is to define the minimum effective dose of BF 2.649 between 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg or 40 mg versus placebo in reducing the Excessive Daytime Sleepiness of Parkinson...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether aFT218 is safe and effective for the treatment of excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy in subjects with narcolepsy.
Pitolisant (BF2.649) in the Treatment of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Syndrome, Treated or Not by Nasal Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, But Still Complaining of Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
The first objective of this study is to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of pitolisant given at 10, 20, or 40 mg per day versus placebo during 12 weeks of the Double Blind period, to tr...
The aim of the present study was to explore the relationship between excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), Peak Nasal Inspiratory Flow (PNIF), and patient reported symptoms from the nose.
Narcolepsy is a lifelong neurological disorder with onset commonly in childhood or adolescence. No drugs are indicated for cataplexy and excessive daytime sleepiness in paediatric patients with narcol...
To determine the association of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) and napping with subsequent brain β-amyloid (Aβ) deposition in cognitively normal persons.
Hemodialysis (HD) patients are exposed to dysregulated fluid balance which can lead to overhydration. Poor sleep quality and excessive daytime sleepiness are particularly common in these patients, how...
It is unknown whether subjective daytime sleepiness or objective napping could precede the risk of Parkinson's disease (PD) in the long term.
Excessive periodic leg movements during sleep that cause micro-arousals and interfere with the maintenance of sleep. This condition induces a state of relative sleep deprivation which manifests as excessive daytime hypersomnolence. The movements are characterized by repetitive contractions of the tibialis anterior muscle, extension of the toe, and intermittent flexion of the hip, knee and ankle. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p387)
A specific category of drugs that prevent sleepiness by specifically targeting sleep-mechanisms in the brain. They are used to treat DISORDERS OF EXCESSIVE SOMNOLENCE such as NARCOLEPSY. Note that this drug category does not include broadly-acting central nervous system stimulants such as AMPHETAMINES.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
A sleep disorder of central nervous system origin characterized by prolonged nocturnal sleep and periods of daytime drowsiness. Affected individuals experience difficulty with awakening in the morning and may have associated sleep drunkenness, automatic behaviors, and memory disturbances. This condition differs from narcolepsy in that daytime sleep periods are longer, there is no association with CATAPLEXY, and the multiple sleep latency onset test does not record sleep-onset rapid eye movement sleep. (From Chokroverty, Sleep Disorders Medicine, 1994, pp319-20; Psychiatry Clin Neurosci 1998 Apr:52(2):125-129)
A disorder characterized by aching or burning sensations in the lower and rarely the upper extremities that occur prior to sleep or may awaken the patient from sleep. Complying with an irresistible urge to move the affected limbs brings temporary relief. Sleep may become disrupted, resulting in excessive daytime hypersomnolence. This condition may be associated with UREMIA; DIABETES MELLITUS; and rheumatoid arthritis. Restless Legs Syndrome differs from NOCTURNAL MYOCLONUS SYNDROME in that in the latter condition the individual does not report adverse sensory stimuli and it is primarily a sleep-associated movement disorder.

Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
