T Cell Phenotypes in Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Influence of Vitamin D

ALS is a devastative disorder characterized by motor neuron degeneration. Median survival is 3 years after onset, but may vary from a few months to more than 30 years. Various factors have been suspected to play a role in such a variation, but recently, it has been described that regulatory ...

Phase N/A

Circulating Biomarker for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rare disease with a worldwide incidence of 2-3 cases per 100,000 individuals/year and it is characterized by progressive neurodegeneration of motor neurons. When motor neurons degenerate the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. ALS manifests in two forms: ...

Phase N/A

Cognitive Consequences of an Activation of the Cortical Drive to Breath (VENTIPSY)

Cognitive capacities are measured on healthy subject submitted to inspiratory threshold loading, patients treated by chronic mechanical ventilation due to suffering Ondine syndrome or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The spontaneous breathing is compared to NIV breathing or inspiratory threshold loading.

Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Screen in Norway: A Validation Study

Screening of cognitive and behavioral impairment is a distinct recommendation in ALS-specific health-care. Thus, a rapid screening tool valid for use in Norway is urgent. However, cognitive assessment for patients with ALS can be difficult due to the complexity of cognitive impairment, as well as motor challenges with writing, drawing ...

Phase N/A

Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Screen in Norway: A Prospective Cohort Study

Cognitive impairment is present in about 30-50% of the patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Screening of cognitive and behavioral impairment is a distinct recommendation in ALS-specific health care. However, knowledge in how cognitive impairment shall influence health-care professionals' information given to patients and in decision making is lacking. One ...

Phase N/A

Effects of Oral Levosimendan (ODM-109) on Respiratory Function in Patients With ALS

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

Open-label Clinical Trial of Lacosamide in ALS

Lacosamide is administered for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). This clinical trial is open-label, single group and before and after comparison study. Dosage of lacosamide is increased from 100mg to 400mg for 4 weeks. Safety of lacosamide administration in ALS is primary endpoint. Nerve excitability, fasciculation and muscle cramp ...

Phase

Safety and Efficacy of Ranolazine for the Treatment of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive debilitating and fatal neurodegenerative disease involving the motor neurons in the primary motor cortex, corticospinal tracts, brainstem and spinal cord with 5,000 newly diagnosed patients per year in the USA. There is a pressing need for additional therapies, as the only two FDA-approved ...

Phase

Clinical Trial of Ultra-high Dose Methylcobalamin for ALS

To examine the clinical efficacy and safety of ultra-high dose (50mg, im, twice a week) methylcobalamin in retarding the progression of symptoms in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients, we enroll ALS patients diagnosed by revised-Awaji-El Escorial criteria within 12 months after the clinical onset. First they are followed for 12 ...

Phase

Ultrasonography of the Neuromuscular Degeneration Behavior in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive and fatal neurological disease. An exhaustive and frequent clinical evaluation can lead to establish an adequate and early treatment of the consequences of its evolution. Objectives. To evaluate the evolution of diaphragmatic and peripheral neuromuscular degeneration by ultrasound examination in patients with ALS ...
