A Phase IIIB, Multicentre, Randomised, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Evaluating the Efficacy and Safety of Dysport Using 2 mf Dilution in Adults with Cervical Dystonia
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a botulinum toxin for treating cervical dystonia. This study will look at botulinum toxin as a 2 milliliter (about ½ teaspoon) injection compared to a placebo. The Parkinson and Movement Disorder Ce...
A Multicenter, Multinational, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, 3-arm, Phase 4 Study to Evaluate the Efficacy of Rotigotine on Parkinson’s Disease-Associated Apathy, Motor Symptoms, and Mood ("BRIGHT")
Patients with Parkinson's disease have low levels of dopamine in the brain. Rotigotine, the drug being studied, acts like dopamine and may relieve some symptoms of Parkinson's disease. It is given in the form of a patch worn 24 hours on the skin. The primary purpose of this study...
A Double-Blind, Cross-Over, Placebo-Controlled Efficacy and Tolerability Study of Perampanel for Essential Tremor
The purpose of this study is to learn whether a drug called Perampanel can help with essential tremor and is safe for people to take. Essential Tremor is a condition in which the hands shake when they are being used to hold things. Other parts of the body such as the head and voi...
A Phase 3, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study Investigating the Efficacy and Safety of CVT-301 (Levodopa Inhalation Powder) in Parkinson’s Disease Patients With Motor Response Fluctuations (OFF Phenomena)
This study is evaluating an investigational, inhaled form of levodopa (CVT-301) in patients with Parkinson's disease who experience OFF episodes (periods when they feel their oral Parkinson's medication is no longer working). To qualify patients with Parkinson's disease should ex...

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr. Tse has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).
Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
Insurance and health plan networks that the various Mount Sinai Health System hospitals and facilities participate in can be found on the Mount Sinai Health System website.
