This study investigates the safety and tolerability of drug IkT-148009 in untreated Parkinson's disease volunteers (30 to 80 years old). It also looks at the pharmacokinetics of IkT-148009 in the body and evaluates the effect of IkT-148009 on motor and non-motor features of the disease. This 12 week study is designed to be 3:1 randomized across 3 doses of IkT-148009 or placebo. Each participant will self-administer one of 3 doses or placebo of IkT-148009 once daily (QD) with food for 12 weeks. For more information, visit our website: www.the201trial.com

Informed Consent: 1. Capable of giving signed ICF as described in Appendix 1 which includes compliance with the requirements and restrictions listed in the ICF and in this protocol. Other Inclusions: 1. Approved as an appropriate and suitable candidate by the EAC.

Exclusion Criteria

  1. Diagnosis/suspicion of secondary or atypical parkinsonism 2. Previous procedure or surgery for PD, or anticipation of these during the study 3.

Clinically significant hallucinations requiring antipsychotic use in the 12 months prior to Screening 6. Clinically significant medical, surgical, psychiatric, or laboratory abnormalities in the judgement of the treating investigator or the EAC Prior/Concomitant Therapy: 1. Past treatment with levodopa, dopaminergic agonists, monoamine oxidase-B inhibitors, supplements containing levodopa (i.e. Mucana pruriens), or A2A antagonists for more than 28 days, or treatment with any of these medications or supplements within 28 days prior to screening 2. Past treatment with irreversible monoamine oxidase-B inhibitors (e.g., selegiline) for more than 28 days; must be discontinued for at least 90 days before screening 3. Currently receiving moderate or strong Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4/5 inducers or CYP3A4/5 inhibitors (except for topical administration) 4. Currently receiving any antipsychotic, metoclopramide, reserpine, or amphetamine. Prior/Concurrent Clinical Study Experience: 1. Current participation in another investigational clinical trial and/or receipt of any investigational medication within 90 days prior to screening 2. Previous randomization into this or another IkT-148009 study Diagnostic Assessments: 1. Active suicidal ideation within one year prior to screening visit, as determined by the Columbia Suicide Rating Scale (answer of "yes" on question 4 or 5) 2. Current diagnosis or history of substance abuse (excluding nicotine or caffeine) by Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)-5 criteria 3. Medical or recreational use of marijuana in the 3 months prior to the screening visit 4.

Evidence of advanced, age-related macular degeneration (neovascular or geographic atrophy) or intermediate macular degeneration as defined by Beckman classification (Large drusen > 125 um and/or any AMD pigmentary abnormalities). Evidence of retina/choroid neovascularization from any cause. Evidence of central serous retinopathy. 7. Abnormal amylase and/or lipase at screening (may be repeated during screening period) 8. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) or aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels greater than 2.5 times the upper limit of normal (ULN) 9. Significant renal impairment as determined by the following criteria: - Creatinine clearance (CrCL) less than or equal to 60 mL/min for subjects < 65 years of age - Creatine clearance (CrCL) greater than or equal to 55 mL/min and the absence of proteinuria or hematuria for subjects ≥ 65 years of age 10.

Detailed Description

This is a 12-Week, randomized, double-blind, multi-center, placebo-controlled dose-ranging clinical trial of three IkT 148009 doses in patients with untreated PD designed to assess safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of IkT-148009, an oral, once daily c-Abl tyrosine kinase inhibitor. Secondary and exploratory assessments will evaluate the effect of IkT-148009 on motor and non-motor features of the disease. 120 participants are anticipated to be enrolled at up to 34 sites across the US. Participants will undergo screening to evaluate their eligibility to participate in the study to include evaluation of Parkinson's diagnosis, vital signs, blood chemistry, hematology and urinalysis and complete listing of concomitant medications. An Enrollment Authorization Committee (EAC) will be responsible for reviewing screening data and confirming the eligibility and suitability of participants. Those selected will be enrolled and randomized to one of three active IkT-148009 arms (50/100/200 mg) or a placebo arm (1:1:1:1). All clinical staff, study investigators, and participants will be blinded to study assignments throughout the trial. A Data Safety Monitoring Committee (DSMB) will evaluate all available safety, tolerability, and PK and Parkinson's disease-related data for each cohort on a monthly to quarterly basis. Adverse event reporting will be evaluated in real-time.


Study information shown on this site is derived from ClinicalTrials.gov (a public registry operated by the National Institutes of Health). The listing of studies provided is not certain to be all studies for which you might be eligible. Furthermore, study eligibility requirements can be difficult to understand and may change over time, so it is wise to speak with your medical care provider and individual research study teams when making decisions related to participation.
