Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second-most common neurodegenerative disorder that, according to DRG epidemiology, afflicts more than 1.5 million people in the EU5. Although PD treatment has been relatively stable in recent years, the treatment paradigm is complex. PD is heterogeneous, requiring individualized treatment, chronic polypharmacy, and frequent adjustments to achieve symptom control throughout a patient’s disease course. Moreover, two recent entrants (Xadago and Ongentys) have added more complexity to this largely generic market. With the treatment landscape poised to expand even further thanks to a dynamic pipeline of unique therapies designed to optimize levodopa, reduce the frequency and impact of motor response complications, or treat key nonmotor symptoms, understanding the many forces that drive EU neurologists’ clinical decision making in PD today is crucial for developers of new PD therapeutics entering an increasingly complicated market.
