Analyzing the Parkinson's disease clinical trial pipeline to facilitate patient collaboration in research.
The World Parkinson Coalition® is a unique organization filling a niche in the global Parkinson's community by bringing the full spectrum of community members together both in person at our triennial World Parkinson Congresses and virtually at our WPC Scientific Updates.

By highlighting promising areas of research and where they are in the pipeline, the PDTrialTracker tool can help foster further collaboration between patients and researchers to accelerate the path to a cure. Insights gained through analysis of the pipeline can lead to development of action plans to help set research priorities, address roadblocks, increase awareness of recruitment and funding needs, improve the participant trial experience, and more.

Suggestions for improving access to PD trial data in order to help facilitate trial awareness, recruitment, and research efforts:
This spreadsheet has 4 tabs/worksheets labeled: Phase 1 Trials, Phase 2 Trials, Phase 3 Trials, and Disease-Modifying Trials. The goal of the charts is to highlight key parameters and timelines for studies in the PD clinical trial pipeline to facilitate patient/researcher collaboration. Comments and feedback can be emailed to email@example.com.
