Cardiac Effects of Rotigotine Transdermal System in Subjects With Advanced-stage Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease
Trial end date:
SummaryThe purpose of this trial is to assess whether rotigotine has an effect on the electrical activity of the heart. Moxifloxacin infusion is used as positive control to assess assay sensitivity.
