CURRENT RECRUITING TRIALS

CRU-SCIG (Myasthenia Gravis)

Switch from intravenous to subcutaneous immunoglobulin in patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP): A single-arm, open-label, prospective pilot study to determine efficacy, treatment satisfaction, health care resource utilization and tolerability

The aim of this study will investigate efficacy, treatment satisfaction, health care resource utilization and tolerability of SCIg in MG and CIDP patients previously treated with IVIg. . The data gathered during the study may also be useful for medical professionals and researchers in the future.

MINT Inebilizumab (Myasthenia Gravis)

A Randomized, Double-Blind, Multicenter, Placebo-Controlled Phase 3 Study with Open-Label Period to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of Inebilizumab in Adults with Myasthenia Gravis 

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the investigational drug, inebilizumab, is safe and effective in reducing the symptoms of myasthenia gravis. 

In this study, the effect that inebilizumab has on your myasthenia gravis will be assessed by recording the state of your disease (worse, better, stable), whether you need more treatment for myasthenia gravis, how you feel about your health, and other measures of whether the drug might be working to prevent flares (activity) of myasthenia gravis 

The study will also assess side effects—both those that you report and those that might be measured in your lab tests-and whether your body makes antibodies against inebilizumab. Antibodies against inebilizumab could reduce the amount of inebilizumab in the blood and the effects of inebilizumab on your myasthenia gravis. 

For this study, 252 male and female participants will be recruited at approximately 100 sites. The participants will be over the age of 18.

SATRALIZUMAB (Myasthenia Gravis)

A Phase III, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Multicenter Study To Evaluate Efficacy, Safety, Pharmacokinetics, And Pharmacodynamics Of Satralizumab In Patients With Generalized Myasthenia Gravis 

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects, good or bad, of subcutaneous (under the skin) injections of satralizumab in combination with current treatment (background therapy) in patients with gMG. 

This study will also collect more data on the long-term safety and efficacy of satralizumab and continue providing you with satralizumab treatment during an open label extension period. 

For this study, 240 male and female participants, including 20 adolescents, will be recruited at 120 sites. The rest of the participants will be aged 18+ years. The Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital will only recruit adult patients aged 18 years and older.

Spinraza

A prospective, multi-center, observational study of the safety, tolerability and effectiveness of SPINRAZA in adult patients with Spinal Muscular Atrophy

From clinicaltrials.gov:

This is a longitudinal, observational study of adult patients with genetically confirmed chromosome 5q SMA to examine the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of SPINRAZA® (nusinersen) for up to 30 months.

This is a prospective, longitudinal, multi-center, observational study designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and effectiveness of SPINRAZA® (nusinersen) in ambulatory and non-ambulatory adult patients with SMA. Subjects with SMA II/III that are 18 years to 70 years of age who are planning to initiate treatment with SPINRAZA® (nusinersen) as part of their clinical care plan will be enrolled in this study.

PXT3003 (Charcot Marie Tooth)
A multicenter, prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group clinical triA Multi-center, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo controlled Phase III Study to Assess the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of PXT3003 in Charcot-Marie-Tooth Type 1A 

The purpose of this study is to investigate how effective PXT3003 is when compared to a placebo on the disease progression and symptoms of CMT1A. PXT3003 consists of a combination of very low doses of 3 currently approved pharmaceutical ingredients: (RS)-baclofen, naltrexone HCl, and D-sorbitol, which are thought to act in different ways to treat CMT1A. 

The placebo used in this study looks exactly like PXT3003 but it does not contain any active medication. Placebos are sometimes called sugar pills, dummy treatments, or shams. We are using a placebo to compare with PXT3003, and to ensure that the changes you report in your health, good or bad, are not only due to chance.  In this information and consent form, the use of “study drug” refers either to PXT3003 or to the placebo. 

The study also aims to assess the safety and tolerability (whether side effects of a medication can be handled by patients) of PXT3003. 

For this study, 350 male and female participants will be recruited at 50 sites globally. The participants will be aged between 16 to 65 years. Only adults 18 years and older will be recruited at the Montreal Neurological Institute-Hospital.
