The Orchestra Study: Parkinson’s Disease Research

Glasgow Memory Clinic is looking for volunteers who may be suitable to take part in the clinical research study of an investigational medication for people with early stage (<2yrs) Parkinson’s disease.

The Orchestra Study: A study in Parkinson’s disease is enrolling now.

One of only three study sites in the U.K. We’re conducting a study to see whether an investigational medication could delay the progression of Parkinson’s disease.

You may be eligible to participate in the Orchestra Study if you:

  • Are aged 40–75 years
  • Have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the past 2 years
  • Experience slowness of movement and muscle stiffness/rigidity and/or tremor/shaking
  • Have only mild symptoms
  • Have not taken any medications to treat your Parkinson’s disease motor symptoms (symptoms related to your movement) and are not expected to need any such medications in the next 6 months.

*There are additional criteria to enrol in the study—for further information about the Orchestra Study please contact our Patient Liaison Team on 0141 948 0206.

Would you like to be screened for the Orchestra study?

The study is investigating the effect of the study drug on the progression of Parkinson’s disease and associated symptoms over a longer period of time. Therefore, the Orchestra Study can only recruit individuals with mild Parkinson’s disease symptoms.

If you meet the above criteria, please click here to take the pre-screener.

If you pre-qualify, you will be referred to our clinic and a member of our patient liaison team will be in touch to discuss the study in detail and confirm whether you can take part.

Why participate in a clinical research study?

By applying to take part in the Orchestra Study you could gain access to cutting edge treatments that aren’t available outside a trial setting and have the opportunity to help clinical research into early-stage Parkinson’s disease.

It’s free to take part and patients who qualify for our clinical studies will receive:

  • Top class study-related care from doctors at Glasgow Memory Clinic
  • Reimbursement for all travel expenses
  • Tea, coffee and lunch facilities during their visits to the clinic
