Davunetide (AL-108) in Predicted Tauopathies - Pilot Study
The primary objective of the study is to obtain preliminary safety and tolerability data with davunetide (NAP, AL-108) in patients with a tauopathy (frontotemporal lobar degeneration [FTLD] with predicted tau pathology, corticobasal degeneration syndrome [CBS] or progressive supranuclear palsy [PSP]). The secondary objectives of this study are to obtain preliminary data on short term changes (at 12 weeks) in a variety of clinical, functional and biomarker measurements from baseline, including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tau levels, eye movements, and brain MRI measurements.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Agents delivered into the nostrils in the form of a mist or spray.
A compound formed when iodoacetic acid reacts with sulfhydryl groups in proteins. It has been used as an anti-infective nasal spray with mucolytic and expectorant action.
Nasal Lavage Fluid
Fluid obtained by irrigation or washout of the nasal cavity and NASAL MUCOSA. The resulting fluid is used in cytologic and immunologic assays of the nasal mucosa such as with the NASAL PROVOCATION TEST in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity.
The proximal portion of the respiratory passages on either side of the NASAL SEPTUM. Nasal cavities, extending from the nares to the NASOPHARYNX, are lined with ciliated NASAL MUCOSA.
Nasal Provocation Tests
Application of allergens to the nasal mucosa. Interpretation includes observation of nasal symptoms, rhinoscopy, and rhinomanometry. Nasal provocation tests are used in the diagnosis of nasal hypersensitivity, including RHINITIS, ALLERGIC, SEASONAL.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the onset of action of fluticasone furoate nasal spray compared to olopatadine nasal spray and placebo nasal spray in reducing nasal allergic signs...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the combination of mometasone furoate nasal spray (MFNS) and oxymetazoline nasal spray (OXY) given together once a day in...
The main objective of this phase 2a proof-of-concept trial is to assess the efficacy of rotigotine nasal spray in ascending doses in subjects with idiopathic Restless Legs Syndrome.
The Purpose of this study is to determine if one allergy medication (0.15% azelastine hydrochloride) is more effective than Placebo alone
The purpose of this study is to determine whether olopatadine nasal spray is safe and effective when used for up to one year by patients with perennial allergic rhinitis.
BACKGROUND: A proof-of-concept study suggested that combination therapy with commercial azelastine hydrochloride nasal spray and fluticasone propionate nasal spray significantly improved nasal symptom...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The common cold, the most prevalent contagious viral disease in humans still lacks a safe and effective antiviral treatment. Iota-Carrageenan is broadly active against respirator...
