Dr. Way is the principal investigator of the PROSEEK study at Renown. PROSEEK is a drug trial that is studying a c-Abl inhibitor developed by SUN pharmaceuticals that has shown promise in slowing the progression of Parkinson’s disease. To be a candidate for the study, one must fulfill at least the following criteria:
- Age > 50 years
- Diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease within the last 3 years
- Not on medication for treatment of Parkinson’s disease aside from monoamine oxidase B (MAOB) inhibitors.
The PROSEEK Study is a clinical research study evaluating a once-daily, oral investigational drug for people with early-stage Parkinson’s disease (PD). The investigational drug is designed to block a specific enzyme called “Abl.” Research has shown that overactivation of Abl may play a role in PD progression. Therefore, by limiting or blocking Abl, it may be possible to help to slow PD progression.
