Taking Part

Can I join?

There are several criteria to meet if you want to join the Orchestra Study. The most important ones are*:

  • Aged 40–70 years
  • Have been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in the past 2 years
  • Experience slowness of movement and at least one of the following:
    • Muscle stiffness/rigidity
    • Tremor/shaking
  • Have not taken any medications to treat Parkinson’s disease motor symptoms (symptoms related to movement) and are not expected to need any such medications in the next 6 months.

*There are additional criteria to enroll in the study—the study team will assess these and discuss them with you.

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 these criteria, take the pre-screener. If you pre-qualify, you will be referred to your nearest study site. At the study center, you will discuss the study in detail and find out whether you can take part.
