New Treatment Approved for Parkinson’s Disease


Xadago (safinamide) was approved for the use of treatment in Parkinson’s disease as an add-on therapy with Sinemet (carbidopa-levodopa) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in early 2017 and became commercially available in July 2017.


Parkinson’s disease


Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder caused by the loss of dopamine producing cells in an area in the brain called the Substantia Nigra. The cause of this cell death is unclear but thought to be related to a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Parkinson’s disease presents with a host of motor and non- motor symptoms.
