Found (104) clinical trials

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Enrolled participants will be dosed with CK-2127107 150, 300, 450 mg or placebo twice daily (300, 600, 900 mg/day or placebo) for a period of 12 weeks.


Safety/Efficacy Study of 2nd Cycle Treatment After 6 Months of 1st Cycle HLA-haplo Matched Allogenic Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Treatment in ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by motor neuron loss. Despite of many trials for disease-modifying, no treatment has so far changed natural course of disease. The investigators had performed the pre-clinical and clinical studies using autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells in ALS. In the investigators' results ...


Bioavailability of GDC-0134 and the Effect of Food and Proton Pump Inhibitor on Pharmacokinetics of GDC-0134 in Healthy Female Participants

This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics and safety of GDC-0134 in healthy female volunteers of non-childbearing potential. The first part of the study will compare the bioavailability of a prototype capsule of GDC-0134 relative to an existing GDC-0134 reference capsule (Periods 1 and 2). The second part of the study ...


Patients are needed to participate in a clinical research study to evaluate Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Neurotrophic factors (NTFs) are potent survival factors for embryonic, neonatal, and adult neurons and are considered potential therapeutic candidates for ALS. Delivery of multiple NTFs to the immediate environment of afflicted neurons in ALS patients is expected to improve their survival and thus slow down disease progression and alleviate symptoms. ...


Intrathecal Autologous Adipose-derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cells for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

The Goal of the Proposed Study is to perform an open label, 60 subject, Phase II multi-site clinical trial to investigate the safety and efficacy of intrathecal treatment of aaMSCs in ALS. Patients will be treated with 1 x 10^8 aaMSCs every 3 months for a total of 4 intrathecal ...


Biomarkers of Synaptic Damage in Multiple Sclerosis

Blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples will be subjected to the procedures required for the isolation of the different components immediately after the withdrawal. Subsequently, the levels of microRNAs, cytokines, chemokines, cell growth factors, neuronal damage markers (tau, phosphorylated and truncated tau, neurofilaments) and mitochondrial (lactate) and free d-amino acids (Objective ...

Phase N/A

Safety of Urate Elevation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal, neurodegenerative disease for which there is no cure. Multiple lines of evidence have implicated oxidative stress in the pathophysiology of ALS. Urate (uric acid) is an endogenous antioxidant system, and urate may serve as a major defense against oxidative stress. Urate has emerged ...


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

F 18 T807 Tau PET Imaging in Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate tau distribution in the brain of subjects with: ALS caused by different genetic mutations, any mutation carriers (with or without symptoms), any non-mutation carrier, any sporadic FTD, normal controls.


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 ...
