Analyzing the Parkinson's disease clinical trial pipeline to facilitate patient collaboration in research.

To view publications of completed studies, you can search PubMed to find publication abstracts and authors, as well as links to full publications. Helpful keywords to use in a search are trial name, trial NCT# (i.e., trial ID), principal investigator name, and sponsor name.  PubMed is a free resource developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) at the U.S. NIH.    

​Note: Phase 1, 2 and 3 studies evaluate the safety and efficacy of a medication, device, or procedure for the treatment of a medical condition.  Phase 4 studies further evaluate a drug or device that has already been FDA-approved.  Studies with no phase specified can include evaluations of exercise, physical therapy, speech therapy, dietary supplements, devices & more.​
