Myopathy clinical trials at University of California Health

10 in progress, 5 open to eligible people

Showing trials for
  • A Study of the Efficacy and Safety of 24 Week Treatment With REN001 in Patients With Primary Mitochondrial Myopathy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multi-centre, study designed to investigate the efficacy and safety of REN001 administered once daily over a 24-week period to patients with PMM.

  • A Study to Evaluate ASP0367 in Participants With Primary Mitochondrial Myopathy

    open to eligible people ages 18-80

    The purpose of the phase 2 portion of this study is to select a biologically-active ASP0367 dose level by pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) evaluation. The phase 2 portion of this study will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367. The purpose of the phase 3 portion of this study is to assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement relative to placebo and will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367 relative to placebo. The phase 3 portion of this study will also assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement and fatigue relative to placebo and will assess the effect of ASP0367 in overall participant functioning relative to placebo.

  • Characterization of Familial Myopathy and Paget Disease of Bone

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The researcher wants to explore the genetic causes of muscle disease. The researcher is particularly interested in muscle disorders that occur in combination with diseases of bone that appear to be passed on from generation to generation. Diffuse Optical Spectroscopy will measure the concentrations of blood, water, and lipids (fats, for example) in your tissues. This device essentially measures the color of tissues in order to determine tissue physiology (its physical and chemical processes).

  • Characterization of Inclusion Body Myopathy Associated With Paget's Disease of Bone and Frontotemporal Dementia (IBMPFD)

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The investigators are researching families with inherited inclusion body myopathy (IBM) and/or Paget disease of bone (PDB) and/or dementia (FTD) which is also called IBMPFD. IBMPFD is caused by mutations in the VCP gene. Our main goal is to understand how changes in the VCP gene cause the muscle, bone and cognitive problems associated with the disease. The investigators are collecting biological specimen such as blood and urine samples, family and medical histories, questionnaire data of patients with a personal or family history of VCP associated disease. Participants do not need to have all symptoms listed above in order to qualify. A select group of participants may be invited to travel to University of California, Irvine for a two day program of local procedures such as an MRI and bone scan. Samples are coded to maintain confidentiality. Travel is not necessary except for families invited for additional testing.

  • Clinical Outcome Study for Dysferlinopathy

    open to eligible people ages 10 years and up

    The "Clinical Outcome Study for Dysferlinopathy" is being performed in centres in Europe (UK- Newcastle; Spain- Barcelona, Sevilla; San Sebastian;Denmark, Copenhagen, Italy- Padova; France- Paris,), USA (Charlotte, NC; Columbus, OH; St.Louis, MO, Stanford CA, Irvine CA and Columbia NY), Chile (Santiago) Japan (Tokyo) and South Korea (Pusan). Oversight is provided by Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Trust. Funding for this study is being provided by the Jain Foundation, a non-profit foundation dedicated to finding therapies for dysferlinopathies(LGMD2b/Miyoshi). The aim of this "Clinical Outcome Study" is to determine the clinical outcome measures required for future clinical trials, characterize the disease progression of dysferlinopathy and collect biological samples for the identification of disease markers that are needed to non-invasively monitor the disease during clinical trials. Without this information, effective clinical trials cannot be performed. This study is recruiting a large number of genetically confirmed dysferlinopathy patients aged 10 years or older, who are ambulant or non-ambulant. The study has reopened for a further two years (COS2). Participants will be assessed at 4 further visits over 2 years via medical, physiotherapy, and MRI/MRS assessments, as well as standard blood tests. Optionally, the participants can donate blood samples and a skin sample for use in the identification of disease markers and other approved research. There is a sub-study running in MRI at selected sites.

  • A Study of CAP-1002 in Ambulatory and Non-Ambulatory Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (HOPE-3)

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    HOPE-3 is a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of a cell therapy called CAP-1002 in study participants with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Non-ambulatory and ambulatory boys and young men who meet eligibility criteria will be randomly assigned to receive either CAP-1002 or placebo every 3 months for a total of 4 doses during a 12-month period.

  • Gene Transfer Clinical Study in X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This is a multinational, open-label, ascending-dose, delayed-treatment concurrent control clinical study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AT132 in subjects with X-Linked Myotubular Myopathy aged less than 5 years old. Subjects will receive a single dose of AT132 and will be followed for safety and efficacy for 5 years

  • Long-Term Outcomes of Ataluren in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study is a long-term study of ataluren in participants with nonsense mutation Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

  • Multi-Center Study of ManNAc for GNE Myopathy

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    GNE myopathy is a rare genetic muscle disease characterized by progressive muscle atrophy and weakness. The disease is caused by mutations in the gene that encodes the enzyme that initiates and regulates N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) biosynthesis and glycan sialylation. Currently, there is no therapy available for this disease. N-Acetylmannosamine (ManNAc), an orphan drug in development for GNE myopathy, is an uncharged monosaccharide and the first committed precursor in Neu5Ac biosynthesis. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial the efficacy and long-term safety of ManNAc will be evaluated in subjects with GNE myopathy.
