Metachromatic Leukodystrophy clinical trials at UCLA
1 in progress, 0 open to eligible people
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The main aim of the study is to determine if SHP611 given by injection into the spinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord (intrathecal; IT) prolongs the time for children with Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD) to retain the ability to move from place to place. Other aims of the study are to determine the effects of intrathecal administration of SHP611 on movement and speech functions and to learn how well SHP611 injected in the spinal fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord is tolerated. Study participants will receive SHP611 for about 2 years with the possibility of an extended treatment period.
