PREPARED: Comparison of prolonged and immediate release ropinirole in advanced Parkinson's disease. [2011.06]
BACKGROUND: PREPARED was a randomized, parallel-group, double-blind, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy of adjunctive ropinirole prolonged release (PR) versus immediate release (IR) in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease (PD)... CONCLUSIONS: Adjunctive PR provided a significantly greater improvement in symptom control in terms of the odds of achieving >/= 20% maintained reduction in time spent "off" compared with IR. Interpretation may be confounded by the higher doses of PR versus IR that were achieved, in combination with lower doses of L-dopa by the study end. Despite dosing differences, the PR titration regimen was generally well tolerated, with an AE profile similar to that of IR. Copyright (c) 2011 Movement Disorder Society.

REQUIP RLS Post Marketing Surveillance [Completed]

Two Way Cross Over BE Fasting Pilot Study of Ropinirole Hydrochloride CR 2mg Tablets [Completed]
Study subjects were screened and enrolled for the study. Subjects were housed in the clinical facility from not less than 12 hours pre-dose till at least 24 hours post-dose in each period. After maintaining at least 10 hours of overnight fast Test or Reference product was administered orally (as per the randomization schedule) to each subject with about 240 mL of water at ambient temperature in each period by trained study personnel. The pre-dose (0. 00 hours) blood sample was collected before dosing and post-dose samples were collected at 2. 00, 3. 00, 4. 00, 5. 00, 5. 50, 6. 00, 6. 50, 7. 00, 7. 50, 8. 00, 8. 50, 9. 00, 9. 50, 10. 00, 10. 50, 11. 00, 12. 00, 14. 00, 16. 00, 20. 00, 24. 00 and 30. 00 hours in each study period with a washout period of 7 days between the dosing of two periods. Subjects were continuously monitored for well being i. e., blood pressure, radial pulse and oral temperature before check-in, prior to drug administration and at regular intervals post dose in each period. The concentration of Ropinirole in plasma samples obtained from study subjects was determined using validated LC-MS/MS method. Pharmacokinetic and statistical analyses were performed on obtained drug concentration data, using appropriate software.
