This purpose of this study is to help determine if UCB0599 (an oral therapy targeting alpha synuclein) can slow the progression/worsening of Parkinson’s disease. Due to the way the study drug works in the brain, it is not expected to provide immediate relief to Parkinson’s disease symptoms, but it may be able to delay their start or reduce their intensity in the long term by protecting neurons.
