The objective of this study is to evaluate and compare the efficacy and safety of escalating doses of BF2.649 and BF2.649 add on Modafinil on cataplexy in patients with narcolepsy
BF 2.649, a new molecule, reduces significantly the diurnal sleepiness and demonstrated its anti-cataplexy effect in pre-clinical and clinical studies.
The objective of this POC study are firstly to evaluate and compare the efficacy and safety of escalating doses of BF2.649 and BF2.649 add on Modafinil (200 mg/day) on cataplexy attacks, and secondly to evaluate the additive/synergistic effect and safety of the combination of BF2.649 and Modafinil on EDS as assessed by both of objective and subjective measures including ESS, MWT, patients sleep diary.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

This study will be conducted as a randomized, double blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled, parallel-group trial in patients diagnosed with narcolepsy. Volunteers for this trial will be...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of JNJ-17216498 compared to modafinil and placebo in patients with narcolepsy, with and without cataplexy.
The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of treatment with PROVIGIL in children and adolescents with excessive sleepiness (ES) associated with narcolep...
Modafinil, trade named Provigil, is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea/hypopnea syndrome, and shift work sle...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of BF2.649 administered by individual titration in narcoleptic patients with excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS)
Narcolepsy type 1 (NT1) is a chronic hypersomnia clinically characterized by daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. Narcolepsy type 1 treatments target individual symptoms: wake-promoting agents (eg, modaf...
BACKGROUND Modafinil is a well-tolerated psychostimulant drug with low addictive potential that is used to treat patients with narcolepsy and other excessive sleepiness. Whereas favorable effects of m...
Narcolepsy with cataplexy (NC) and narcolepsy without cataplexy (NwoC) are lifelong neurological disorders characterized primarily by excessive daytime sleepiness. Emotional events such as laughter ar...
We theorise that in some cases Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) predisposes to narcolepsy and hypersomnia, and that there may be a shared pathophysiology with various addictions [Reward...
Narcolepsy affects approximately 1 in 2000 people but is often not correctly diagnosed. This review article summarizes recent discoveries regarding the neurobiologic features of this condition and des...
A condition characterized by recurrent episodes of daytime somnolence and lapses in consciousness (microsomnias) that may be associated with automatic behaviors and AMNESIA. CATAPLEXY; SLEEP PARALYSIS, and hypnagogic HALLUCINATIONS frequently accompany narcolepsy. The pathophysiology of this disorder includes sleep-onset rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which normally follows stage III or IV sleep. (From Neurology 1998 Feb;50(2 Suppl 1):S2-S7)
A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.
Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the B locus on chromosome 6. There is a weak association between the presence of the HLA-B7 antigen and the diseases of narcolepsy and idiopathic hemochromatosis. HLA-B7 is in linkage disequilibrium with HLA-A3 and HLA-DR2.
Human immune-response, D-related antigen encoded by the D locus on chromosome 6 and found on lymphoid cells. It is in linkage disequilibrium with HLA-A3 and HLA-B7 and is strongly associated with Goodpasture syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and narcolepsy.
A phenethylamine found in EPHEDRA SINICA. PSEUDOEPHEDRINE is an isomer. It is an alpha- and beta-adrenergic agonist that may also enhance release of norepinephrine. It has been used for asthma, heart failure, rhinitis, and urinary incontinence, and for its central nervous system stimulatory effects in the treatment of narcolepsy and depression. It has become less extensively used with the advent of more selective agonists.
Sleep disorders disrupt sleep during the night, or cause sleepiness during the day, caused by physiological or psychological factors. The common ones include snoring and sleep apnea, insomnia, parasomnias, sleep paralysis, restless legs syndrome, circa...
