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

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Olanzapine for the Treatment of Appetite Loss in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

After randomization, there is a placebo-controlled parallel group treatment with 10 mg OLN in combination with the standard treatment of Riluzole (100mg/day)(Group 1) in comparison to treatment with placebo in combination with 100 mg RIL (Group 2). Study drug will be provided as 5 mg tablets. OLN will be begun ...

Phase

Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

During the course of ALS most patients develop swallowing deficits. In this pilot study we investigate if dysphagia in ALS can be improved by Pharyngeal Electrical Stimulation (PES). PES is Communaut Europenne (CE-) certificated and has been approved for treatment of neurological, oropharyngeal dysphagia. During PES, electrical stimuli are applied ...

Phase

Non-invasive Brain Stimulation for the Treatment of Depression Symptoms in ALS: A Pilot Study

The objective of this study is to evaluate the role of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) for symptom reduction of depression and cognitive loss among patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and other Neurodegenerative Diseases. Behavioral symptoms in ALS have been under scrutiny since its earliest descriptions, nearly 30 years ...

Phase N/A

SSRIs vs. TCAs for Depression in ALS Patients

This study is a 12-week, open-label, non-randomized, pilot clinical intervention trial. This is investigator initiated study.This trial will be done at St Louis University ALS clinic. ALS patients will be screened for depression using Beck depression inventory (BDI-II) scale. A mental healthcare provider will evaluate the patients scoring 19 or ...

Phase N/A

Predictive Factors for the Diagnosis of Early Noninvasive Ventilation Equipment

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is the most common motor neuron disease. The diagnosis of this diaphragmatic dysfunction in the ALS subject is done all too often on the occasion of a hospitalization for acute respiratory insufficiency, which aggravates then the prognosis of the patients. The presence of these factors at ...

Phase N/A

ALS Study Determining Various Biomarkers and Strength Comparison After Exercise

The purpose of this study is to determine the muscle strength of a muscle in the thigh after 12 weeks of home exercise.

Phase N/A

CC100: Phase 1 Multiple-Dose Safety and Tolerability in Subjects With ALS

Primary objective: to assess the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of orally administered CC100 in subjects with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Secondary objectives: to determine pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of CC100 in plasma after single and after multiple doses; and to determine short-term effects of CC100 on potential blood-cell ALS ...
