  • Phase 2 Study for SAR443820 in Participants With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    This is a parallel treatment, Phase 2, randomized, double-blind study to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, PK, and PD of twice daily (BID) oral SAR443820 compared with placebo in male and female participants,18 to 80 years of age with ALS followed by an openlabel, longterm extension period. Study ACT16970 consists of 2 parts (A and B) as follows: Part A is a 24 week, double blind, placebo controlled part, preceded by a screening period of up to 4 weeks before Day 1. On Day 1 of Part A, participants will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to the SAR443820 treatment arm or matching placebo arm as listed below: - Treatment arm: SAR443820, BID - Placebo arm: Placebo, BID Randomization will be stratified by the geographic region of the study site, region of ALS onset (bulbar vs other areas), use of riluzole (yes vs no), and use of edaravone (yes vs no). Participants will attend inclinic study assessments at baseline (Day 1), Week 2, Week 4, Week 8, Week 16, and Week 24, and will receive a phone call at Week 12 and Week 20. All ongoing participants in Part A will rollover to Part B. The Week 24 Visit is the end of Part A and the beginning of Part B. Part B is an open label, longterm extension period that starts from the end of Part A (Week 24) and continues up to Week 106. The objectives of Part B are to further determine the safety and efficacy of longterm SAR443820 treatment. The treatment assignment of participants in Part A will remain blinded to Investigators, participants, and site personnel until the end of Part B. Every participant ,except those who discontinued Investigational Medicinal Product (IMP) treatment permanently in Part A, will receive BID oral tablets of SAR443820 in Part B.

  • Intermuscular Coherence as a Biomarker for ALS

    open to eligible people ages 20-80

    The specific aims of this study are to: 1. Determine if a painless and quick measurement of muscle activity using surface electrodes can help with the diagnosis of ALS. Specifically, we ask if a measure of intermuscular coherence (IMC-βγ), when added to current diagnostic criteria (Awaji criteria), can differentiate ALS from mimic diseases more accurately and earlier than currently possible. 2. Characterize IMC-βγ in neurotypical subjects by age, sex, race, and ethnicity. 3. Follow a cohort of ALS patients longitudinally to determine if IMC-βγ changes with ALS disease progression and whether such changes correlate with functional and clinical scores, or survival.
