RESULTS

Found (106) clinical trials

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

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

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

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

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 ...

This trial is evaluating an investigational therapy for SOD1-ALS. The goal of the clinical trial is to answer questions about the investigational therapy and how it affects people living with ALS. The clinical trial may be of interest to you or someone you know who may be living with ALS, ...

Neuroinflammation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - Mechanisms and Therapeutic Perspectives: a Translational Pilot Study Among ALS Patients

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is the most common motor neuron diseases. It is considered as a rare disease with a prevalence of about 8 per 100,000 persons. Initiating in mid-life by progressive paralysis, it evolves rapidly into a generalized muscle wasting that leads irrevocably to death within 2 or 5 ...

Phase N/A

A Study to Evaluate the Performance of a Diagnostic Test in ALS

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a rapidly progressive, degenerative disease of motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord that leads to muscle atrophy and spasticity in limb and bulbar muscles. Clinical presentations of this fatal disease include weakness, loss of ambulation, oropharyngeal dysfunction, weight loss, and ...

Phase N/A

Muscular Biomarkers in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), the most common MND, is a fatal adult-onset neuromuscular disease. Due to clinical heterogeneity and absence of biological tools to diagnose ALS, the delay between the first symptoms and diagnosis averages 9-13 months. A group of pathophysiological processes, including oxidative stress and glutamate-mediated excitotoxicity contribute to ...

Epidemiology and Genetics of the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in the French West Indies

The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive muscular paralysis due to degeneration of motor neurons in the primary motor cortex, corticospinal pathway, brain stem and spinal cord. The incidence is estimated at 2/100 000 per year and prevalence at approximately 4/100000. Various clinical forms are ...
