  • A Study to Explore the Safety and Tolerability of Acthar in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Jacksonville, Fla.

    This 8-week randomized, open-label evaluation will examine the acute safety and tolerability of 4 different dosing regimens of Acthar to inform dose selection for future studies of Acthar in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The study will also investigate the mean rate of change in the ALSFRS-R total score as an exploratory endpoint to help design future studies.

    This study will enroll up to 40 patients and include an optional 28-week open-label extension period plus a 3-week treatment taper and 1-week follow up period. After completion of Week 8, patients enrolled in a treatment group that is considered safe and tolerable at that time have the option to continue into the open-label extension period. A 3-week treatment taper and a follow-up visit are planned for all patients enrolled in the study, beginning either at Week 8 or at Week 36 if a patient continues into the optional open-label extension period.

  • HDE Post-Approval Study (PAS) of NeuRx DPS for ALS Jacksonville, Fla.

    This post-approval study will follow 60 participants who have ALS, documented chronic hypoventilation, and bilateral phrenic nerve function, and who undergo the surgical implantation procedure to receive the NeuRx Diaphragm Pacing System device. Participants who are successfully implanted with the device will use it for daily diaphragm conditioning sessions. Participants will be followed for at least two years (until the last enrolled participant reaches the 2-year follow-up visit). Safety and probable benefit outcome measures will be assessed.

  • Multi-Center, Randomized Controlled Study of the NeuRx® Diaphragm Pacing System (DPS) in Participants with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Jacksonville, Fla.

    The study is being conducted to determine if DPS treatment for people with ALS and hypoventilation is associated with improved survival or diaphragm function.

    The primary objective of the study is to conduct a multi-center, randomized controlled clinical trial comparing standard of care (control) to diaphragm stimulator treatment with the NeuRx® Diaphragm Pacing System™ (DPS) with respect to survival.

    The secondary objective of the study is to conduct a multi-center, randomized controlled clinical trial to compare standard of care treatment (control) to DPS in ALS subjects with hypoventilation.
