Parkinson’s Disease Research Study
Building on our extensive research experience and in recognition of the work that we do in clinical studies, Glasgow Memory Clinic is now proud to contribute towards studies for those who have Parkinson’s Disease.
As 1 of only 3 study sites in the U.K. we will welcome patients to our world class facility from across Scotland who may be suitable to take part in the Orchestra clinical research study for men and women with early-stage Parkinson’s disease.
This new 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.
Clinical research studies can help advance the understanding of a disease, and they rely on individuals volunteering to participate. They are the most important way for researchers to find out if drugs that are being developed are well tolerated and effective.
By joining the Orchestra Study you have the opportunity to help clinical research into early-stage Parkinson’s disease across Europe and North America.
