March 21 (Bloomberg) -- Addex Pharmaceuticals Ltd. said its experimental treatment for Parkinson’s disease reduced symptoms and was safe in a mid-stage patient study.

In a trial involving 76 Parkinson’s patients, dipraglurant showed a statistically significant reduction in the involuntary movements linked with the most widely used drug to treat the disease, Geneva-based Addex said in a statement after the close of trading today.

The drug also met its safety targets in the trial, Addex said.

Addex said today it’s changing its name to Addex Therapeutics. The switch has to be approved by shareholders.
