Other Information:

Purpose: The CENTAUR trial will be a 2:1 (active:placebo) randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase II trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of AMX0035 for the treatment of ALS.
Eligibility: 18-80 year, all genders, not accepting healthy volunteers
Details: AMX0035 is a combination therapy designed to reduce neuronal death through blockade of key cellular death pathways originating in the mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum (ER). This clinical trial is designed to demonstrate that treatment is safe, tolerable, and able to slow decline in function as measured by the ALSFRS-R. The trial will also assess the effects of AMX0035 on muscle strength, vital capacity, and biomarkers of ALS including markers of neuronal death and neuroinflammation.
