Fragile X Syndrome clinical trials at University of California Health

6 in progress, 3 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • BPN14770 in Male Adolescents (Aged 9 to < 18 Years) With Fragile X Syndrome

    open to eligible males ages 9-18

    This is a 2-part study, with each part having a unique set of objectives for male adolescents aged 9 to < 18 years with fragile X syndrome (FXS). Part 1 is an open-label, single-dose, pharmacokinetics (PK) assessment of BPN14770 25 mg and 50 mg, while Part 2 is double-blind (DB) and randomized between two treatment groups (Study Drug and Placebo).

  • BPN14770 in Male Adults (Aged 18 to 45) With Fragile X Syndrome

    open to eligible males ages 18-45

    A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel Group Study of BPN14770 in Male Adults (Aged 18 to 45) with Fragile X Syndrome

  • Cannabidiol in Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults With Fragile X Syndrome

    “Children and teens between 3 and 17 diagnosed with Fragile X syndrome may qualify for a clinical trial”

    open to eligible people ages 3-23

    This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-center study, to assess the efficacy and safety of Cannabidiol administered as ZYN002 for the treatment of children, adolescent, and young adult patients with Fragile X Syndrome (FXS). Eligible participants will participate in up to an 18-week treatment period, where all participants will receive placebo or active study drug. Patients ages 3 to < 23 years will be eligible to participate.

  • BPN14770 in Subjects With Fragile X Syndrome

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This is a 2-year, open-label extension (OLE) study for subjects completing one of two double-blind clinical trials with BPN14770, Study BPN14770-CNS-301(in adult males) and Study BPN14770-CNS-204 (in adolescent males).

  • Extension to Assess the Long-Term Safety and Tolerability of ZYN002 in Children and Adolescents With FXS

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    ZYN002 is a pharmaceutically manufactured Cannabidiol that is developed as a clear gel that can be applied to the skin (called transdermal delivery). The gel will be applied to clean, dry, intact skin of the shoulders and/or upper arms. Participants from the ZYN2-CL-016 and ZYN2-CL-033 studies who meet the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria for study ZYN2-CL-017 are eligible. Parents/caregivers will apply the study gel twice daily for the 52-week treatment period.

  • Sensitivity of the NIH Toolbox to Stimulant Treatment in Intellectual Disabilities

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial of extended-release liquid methylphenidate (XRMPH) to evaluate the sensitivity of the NIH Toolbox Cognition Battery (NIHTB-CB) to changes in cognition in children and adolescents ages 6 to 17 with intellectual disability (D) and comorbid Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The sample will include 68 males or females (expected male: female ratio of 1.8:1 with ID and ADHD as determined by structured diagnostic interview and Conners 3 scores. Additional inclusion criteria will include Full Scale IQ above 50 and mental age greater than or equal to 4 years. In addition, participants must be able to complete NIHTB-CB testing and provide valid scores at baseline. After baseline testing, participants will then be randomized to drug or placebo in a 1:1 ratio (N=34 per group) at the end of the baseline visit. XRMPH in oral suspension supplied as Quillivant XR in 5 mg/ml (Tris Pharma, Monmouth Junction, NJ) will be the active treatment. The XRMPH or matching placebo will be started at a dose of 0.3 mg/kg/day and individually titrated over two weeks. Phone calls at the end of weeks 1, 2, and 3 will be used to collect adverse event and response data. If there is no evidence of side effects and ongoing symptoms of ADHD, the dose will be increased to 0.5 mg/kg/day at one week and 0.7 mg/kg/day at 2 weeks (maximum dose of 60 mg per day consistent with FDA labeled use in youth). The Clinical Global Impression (CGI) will be used as a guide to define optimal dose. If side effects occur the dose will be reduced to the dose level at which there were no side effects. Final optimal dose will be established by the end of week 3 and this will be maintained for 2 weeks until 5 weeks post randomization, at which time the follow-up parent and teacher Conners scales, NIHTB-CB, Go/No-Go, and PedsQL will be completed. Participants will have a washout period of 1 week, will then complete re-assessment at the second baseline, and then will cross over to the other treatment (Quillivant to placebo; placebo to Quillivant), also in a double-blind fashion. In the second treatment arm, patients will have the same titration, monitoring and treatment periods as in the first arm, again followed by repeated assessments at the conclusion of 5 weeks. The accrual of participants and number of visits is shown in the Timeline per 6-month period.
