Davunetide (AL-108) in Predicted Tauopathies - Pilot Study

2014-08-27 03:16:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

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.

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.
