RESULTS

Found (177) clinical trials

Is your life affected by Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS?) Wake Research Associates is enrolling volunteers with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in a study testing the safety and tolerability of an investigational medication.  

Phase

The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of CK-2127107 versus placebo on respiratory function and other measures of skeletal muscle function in patients with ALS.

Phase

This is a multicenter, multiple dose study to examine the effect of H.P. Acthar® (Acthar) on functional decline in adult subjects with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Phase

This study will evaluate whether prolonged oral levosimendan can preserve respiratory function more effectively than placebo, resulting in better patient functionality as measured by the ALSFRS-R scale. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter study, subjects are allocated in a 2:1 ratio to receive either levosimendan (1 -2 mg daily) ...

Phase

The purpose of this study is to create a large repository of cells for ALS gene identification. Healthy participants will complete 2 visits approximately 1 hour in length (3 months apart). ALS participants will complete 5 study visits approximately 1 hour in length (3 months apart). All participants will complete ...

Use of Adhesive Elastic Taping for the Therapy of Medium/Severe Pressure Ulcers in Spinal Cord Injured Patients

All patients with a significant deficiency of skin sensitivity and reduced mobility are potentially at risk of Pressure Ulcers (PUs), in particular the persons affected by Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), also due to their frequent alteration or loss of subcutaneous skin sensitivity. More than one-third of individuals hospitalized in Spinal ...

Speed of Robotic Leg Movements and Orthostatic Hypotension in Subacute SCI

Orthostatic hypotension (OH) refers to a drop in blood pressure as a result of sitting up or standing up (moving against gravity). OH has been defined as a decrease in systolic (20 mmHg) or diastolic (10 mmHg) blood pressure upon transition from lying down to an upright position regardless of ...

Biomarkers in Different Types of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Patients Being Treated With Edaravone

This study is being conducted to help the investigators better understand how the new FDA approved medication Edaravone (also known as Radicava) works in subsets of patients with ALS. The investigators are also trying to understand if there are specific ALS patients, with different presentations of ALS, who might benefit ...

Clinical Procedures to Support Research in ALS

The study will consent patients with ALS or related disorders that are receiving care at a clinical center in the CReATe consortium that uses Epic as its electronic health record (EHR) system. The study aims to systematically gather a clinical dataset through the EHR using a standardized approach to characterize ...
