Adamas Announces Publication of Data Supporting the Benefits of GOCOVRI™ in Parkinson’s Disease Patients with Dyskinesia
“The results from this pooled analysis of two Phase 3 studies confirms the consistency of GOCOVRI’s benefit on dyskinesia and OFF time, as demonstrated in the individual studies across different Parkinson’s disease patient populations and all primary and secondary endpoint measures,” said lead author
The pooled analysis included the UDysRS, the Movement Disorder Society-Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (MDS-UPDRS) patient-reported Parkinson’s disease home diary data, and Clinician’s Global Impression of Change (CGI-C) data collected in both Phase 3 studies. In addition to the reported 41 percent reductions in dyskinesia in the UDysRS, reductions in both dyskinesia and OFF were seen in the diary data, as well as a nearly 4-hour improvement in ON time without troublesome dyskinesia. In addition, 52 percent of patients in the GOCOVRI-treated group reported a complete resolution of their ON time with troublesome dyskinesia by Week 12, compared with 23 percent of patients in the placebo-treated group. Moreover, 25 percent of patients in the GOCOVRI-treated group reported a complete resolution of their OFF time, compared with 14 percent of patients in the placebo group.
“With its demonstrated, consistent clinical efficacy, GOCOVRI finally provides a solution for physicians and patients needing a proven durable treatment for dyskinesia in people with Parkinson’s disease,” said
In the pooled Phase 3 analysis, most adverse reactions were of mild to moderate intensity, and the most common adverse reactions (>10%) were hallucination, dizziness, dry mouth, peripheral edema, constipation, falls, and orthostatic hypotension.
