  • Participants with advanced levodopa-responsive PD and persistent motor fluctuations who have not been controlled with optimized medical treatment (OMT: the maximum therapeutic effect obtained with pharmacological antiparkinsonian therapies when no further improvement is expected with regard to any additional manipulations of levodopa and/or other antiparkinsonian medication based on the Investigator's clinical judgment)
  • Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale (UDysRs) Total score 30 at Visit 3

  • Patient(s) has undergone neurosurgery for the treatment of Parkinson's disease.
  • Patient(s) has contraindications to levodopa (e.g. narrow angle glaucoma, malignant melanoma)
