Session information:

Title: A holistic approach to Parkinson’s disease endpoint data collection: efficacy, safety and quality of life​

Date: Tuesday, May 7, 2024

Time: 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Stream B: Clinical Technology & Innovation


Join us for a comprehensive exploration into Parkinson’s disease (PD) endpoint data collection, as we delve into the core elements of efficacy, safety, and quality of life. This session will highlight how the integration of different endpoint modalities provides researchers with a clear advantage in their mission to advance innovative therapeutics for this largely unmet medical need. The endpoint modalities to be discussed include: 

  • Wearable digital endpoint solutions and their pivotal role in providing quantitative gait assessment for detection of disease progression 
  • eCOA solutions for assessing efficacy and quality of life, leveraging clinical rating scales, symptom diaries, and other patient-reported outcome measures 
  • Medical imaging modalities focused on accurately characterizing PD status biologically, paving the way for biomarker-guided drug development
  • Cardiac monitoring in this unique population, collecting high-quality blood pressure and cardiac rhythm data to characterize PD-associated autonomic dysfunction
