Addex Pharma reports positive top line data from a Phase IIa clinical study of dipraglurant in Parkinson's disease patients suffering from debilitating levodopa-induced dyskinesia (LID). The data show that dipraglurant met the primary objective of the study by exhibiting a good safety and tolerability profile.

Dipraglurant also demonstrated statistically significant reduction in LID severity with both 50mg and 100mg doses. Dipraglurant appears to reduce dystonia severity in addition to chorea, the two major LID components. A full analysis of the data will be presented at a scientific forum in 2012.Dipraglurant is an oral, small molecule allosteric modulator that inhibits selectively the metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5), a Class C G-Protein Coupled Receptor (GPCR), with potential to be used in combination with levodopa or dopamine agonists or as a standalone treatment for PD-LID, PD-related motor symptoms, non-motor symptoms of PD and other movement disorders.

Condition: Parkinsons-LID
