Safety and Tolerability of Perampanel in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Patients

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), the most common motor neuron disease, is a fatal progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting motor cortex, brainstem and spinal cord leading to motor neuron death. It is a devastating disease of the anterior and lateral corticospinal tracts with approximately 3 years mean duration from symptoms onset to ...

Phase

Intraspinal Transplantation of Autologous ADRC in ALS Patients

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an incurable disease of unknown etiology that in a short time leads to significant impairment of motor functions and death. The frequency of ALS is 4-8/100 000. Mostly it affects people between 40 and 70 years old, but it can occur at a younger age. ...

Phase

Spinal Interneuron Excitability in ALS

Given the all-or-none properties of neuromuscular junctions, the electromyogram (EMG) reflects the activity of spinal motoneurons. These neurons are the last order neurons in all neural pathways involved in motor control. Modification of the afferent neural activity, whatever its level (spinal or supraspinal), will affect the excitability of spinal motoneurons ...

Phase N/A

Rapamycin Treatment for ALS

This is a phase II randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter clinical trial for people with ALS. The aim is to study the biological and clinical effect of Rapamycin (in two different doses) in addition to Riluzole on ALS patients through comparison with patients treated with Riluzole and placebo. Rapamycin has been ...

Phase

Predict to Prevent Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration (FDT) and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

This study will investigate whether cognitive deficits, structural and functional changes can be detected before symptom onset in presymptomatic mutation carrier. The main objectives of the project are to identify novel cognitive, brain imaging markers and peripheral biomarkers for early diagnosis of FTLD, and to follow disease progression. Methodology Recruitment ...

Phase N/A

Trial of Amivita in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder affecting upper and lower motor neurons. Survival is typically 2 to 5 years from symptom onset; death is usually from respiratory paralysis. Standard therapy is with Riluzole 100 mg/day, a FDA approved treatment for ALS that has a small effect on ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Assessment of Neuronal Damage by MRI Sodium ( 23Na ) in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a neurodegenerative disease affecting the central and peripheral motor neurons, characterized by the rapidity of its evolution (median survival of 3 years). The pathophysiology of the disease is still poorly understood. Neuronal death results from several cellular mechanisms entangled, including mitochondrial dysfunction. The absence of ...

Phase N/A

ALS Treatment Extension Study

Treatment extension study for ALS/MND patients who participated in phase 1 study CMD-2016-001, completed assessments following six 28-day cycles of treatment, and whom the Investigator considers would benefit from continued CuATSM treatment. The same safety assessments as in the CMD-2016-001 study will be conducted after each cycle of treatment and ...

Phase

Oral Nutritional Supplementation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Patients

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a rare neurodegenerative disease with a median age at time of diagnosis of 65 years. In France, the incidence ranges between 1.5 and 2.5/100 000 person-year of follow-up. The disease is related to progressive degeneration of motor neurons in the two voluntary motor pathways. It ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Noninvasive Ventilation on Lung Function in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or "Lou Gehrig's Disease", is a fatal disorder that causes progressive degeneration and weakening of the muscles of breathing, leading to breathing insufficiency and eventually breathing failure. This breathing insufficiency is commonly treated with a breathing assistance device, known as noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV). While ...
