Cerebellar Ataxia clinical trials at UCLA

12 in progress, 4 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • Gene Therapy for Cardiomyopathy Associated With Friedreich's Ataxia

    open to eligible people ages 18-50

    This is a Phase 1/2, open-label, dose-ascending, multicenter study of the safety and efficacy of LX2006 for participants who have Friedreich's Ataxia with evidence of cardiomyopathy. The study will evaluate up to three doses of single administration of LX2006 (AAVrh.10hFXN), an adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapy designed to intravenously deliver the human frataxin (hFXN) gene to cardiac cells over a 52-week period. Long-term safety and efficacy will be evaluated for an additional 4-years for a total of 5-years post LX2006 treatment.

  • N-Acetyl-L-Leucine for Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T)

    open to eligible people ages 6 years and up

    This is a multinational, multicenter, open-label, rater-blinded prospective Phase II study which will assess the safety and efficacy of N-Acetyl-L-Leucine (IB1001) for the treatment of Ataxia-Telangiectasia (A-T). There are two phases to this study: the Parent Study, and the Extension Phase. The Parent Study evaluates the safety and efficacy of N-Acetyl-L-Leucine (IB1001) for the symptomatic treatment of A-T. The Extension Phase evaluates the long-term safety and efficacy of IB1001 for the neuroprotective, disease-modifying treatment of A-T.

  • Genetic Modifiers in Spinocerebellar Ataxias

    open to eligible people ages 6 years and up

    Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA) are genetic neurological diseases that cause imbalance, poor coordination, and speech difficulties. There are different kinds of SCA and this study will focus on types 1, 2,3, and 6 (SCA 1, SCA 2, SCA 3 , also known as Machado-Joseph disease and SCA 6). The diseases are rare, slowly progressive, cause increasingly severe neurological difficulties and are variable across and within genotypes. The purpose of this research study is to bring together a group of experts in the field of SCA for the purpose of learning more about the disease. The research questions are: 1. How does your disease progress over time? 2. What are the best ways to measure the progression? 3. Do some genes, other than the gene that is abnormal in your disease, have any effect on the way the disease behaves? This is a nationwide study and we expect that 800 patients will participate all over the USA. The participants will be in the study for an indeterminate period of time. Study visits will be done every 6 or 12 months depending on the participating site.

  • Friedreich Ataxia Global Clinical Consortium UNIFIED Natural History Study

    open to all eligible people

    This project is a global, multicenter, prospective, longitudinal, observational natural history study that can be used to understand the disease progression and support the development of safe and effective drugs and biological products for Friedreich ataxia.

  • Vatiquinone in Participants With Friedreich Ataxia

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The primary objective of this study is to assess the long-term safety of vatiquinone in participants with Friedreich ataxia (FA) previously exposed to vatiquinone in Study PTC743-NEU-003-FA (NCT04577352) or Study PTC743-NEU-005-FA.

  • Open Pilot Trial of BHV-4157

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    24 adults, between the ages of 18 and 75 years, with cerebellar ataxia will be enrolled in a 12 week trial of BHV-4157 for treatment of ataxia. BHV-4157 is a pro-drug of riluzole (which is currently FDA-approved for ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease). There will be 5 visits to UCLA required--Screening when general and neurological examination, blood and urine testing, ECG, and questionnaires will be administered; Baseline when general and neurological examination and questionnaires will be administered and study drug dispensed; Week 4 and Week 12 when general and neurological examination, blood and urine testing, ECG, and questionnaires will be administered; 2 weeks after finishing study drug when general examination and blood testing will be completed. There is an option for a 36 week extension of the study drug trial.

  • RTA 408 Capsules in Patients With Friedreich's Ataxia - MOXIe

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Friedreich's ataxia is an autosomal recessive cerebellar ataxia caused by triplet-repeat expansions. The causative mutation is a trinucleotide (GAA) repeat expansion in the first intron of the frataxin gene, leading to impaired transcription of frataxin. The pathological consequences of frataxin deficiency include a severe disruption of iron-sulfur cluster biosynthesis, mitochondrial iron overload coupled to cellular iron dysregulation, and an increased sensitivity to oxidative stress. A hallmark of Friedreich's ataxia is impairment of antioxidative defense mechanisms, which play a major role in disease progression. Studies have demonstrated that nuclear factor erythroid-derived 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) signaling is grossly impaired in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Therefore, the ability of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) to activate Nrf2 and induce antioxidant target genes is hypothesized to be therapeutic in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. This 2-part study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacodynamics of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) in the treatment of patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Part 1: The first part of this study will be a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, dose-escalation study to evaluate the safety of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) at various doses in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Part 2: The second part of this study is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) 150 mg in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Patients enrolled in Part 2 will be randomized 1:1 to receive omaveloxolone (RTA 408) 150 mg or placebo. Extension: The extension will assess long-term safety and tolerability of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) in qualified patients with Friedreich's ataxia following completion of Part 1 or Part 2. Patients will not be unblinded to study treatment in Part 1 or Part 2 upon entering the extension study. Patients will receive open-label omaveloxolone (RTA 408) at 150 mg once daily.

  • FA Clinical Outcome Measures

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    This multicenter natural history study aims to expand the network of clinical research centers in FA, and to provide a framework for facilitating therapeutic interventions. In addition, this study will lead to the development of valid yet sensitive clinical measures crucial to outcome assessment of patients with Friedreich's Ataxia. This study will support genetic modifier studies, biomarker studies, and frataxin protein level assessments by building a sample repository.
