RESULTS

Found (6) clinical trials

This study includes the use of a 3D motion device that measures movement in three directions. It is being used as part of this research study to find out if it accurately tracks motion so it can be used in other ataxia research trials in the future.

Phase N/A

A prospective longitudinal study, measuring gait and balance of ambulatory people with FRDA over a 12 month period of time, will be conducted. Gait and balance measures will be assessed at baseline, 6 months and 12 months.

Phase N/A

Friedreich's ataxia is an autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia caused by triplet-repeat expansions. The causative mutation is a trinucleotide (GAA) repeat expansion in the first intron of the frataxin gene, leading to impaired transcription of frataxin. The pathological consequences of frataxin deficiency include a severe disruption of iron-sulfur cluster biosynthesis, mitochondrial ...
