(Reuters) - Acorda Therapeutics Inc said on Monday it would stop developing its Parkinson's disease drug, less than a week after the company reported deaths in key studies testing the treatment.
Previous postmortem studies demonstrated dysregulation of autophagy in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). To clarify whether this alteration reflects a fundamental aspect of PD or represents the final stage of autophagy dysregulation resulting from a long neurodegenerative process, we focused on basal autophagy in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of PD patients (n = 35) and controls (n = 23). The whole-transcriptome assay revealed down-regulation of mRNAs for six core regulators of autophagy (UNC-51-like kinase (ULK) 3, autophagy-related (Atg) 2A, Atg4B, Atg5, Atg16L1, histone deacetylase 6).
Parkinson ’s disease [PD] affects 3% of the population over the age of 65-years, with a slight male predominance; however up to 10% of patients develop symptoms before the age of 40 years.1 Estimates of prevalence rates of PD in European countries range from 65.6 to 12 500 per 100 000 and annual incidence e stimates range from 5 to 346 per 100 000.2 The prevalence of PD among women of child-bearing age is unknown, and pregnancy in women with PD is very uncommon. According to the available estimates, about 5% of PD patients fall within the childbearing age group.

ConclusionThe prolongedt1/2, increased AUC0 –t, and more stable plasma drug concentration of the rasagiline patch may permit a longer dosing interval compared to the oral tablet. The rasagiline transdermal patch was safe and well tolerated in healthy Chinese subjects.
