Last verified: August 2014
  Purpose

The primary objective of the study is to confirm the efficacy of 60 mg of MCI-186 via intravenous drip infusion once a day in the patients with ALS based on the changes in the revised ALS functional rating scale (ALSFRS-R) scores after 24 weeks administration in double-blind, placebo-controlled manner. The study is also to examine the safety of MCI-186 to the ALS patients.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm 1 Drug: MCI-186
Two ampoules (60 mg) of MCI-186 injection are intravenously administered once a day, for successive 14 days, followed by 14 days observation period (first cycle). The following treatment (10 days' administration during 14 days) - observation (14 days) cycle is repeated five times (2nd-6th cycles).
Drug: MCI-186 in open label phase
All patients after the double blind phase may receive MCI-186 in 7th until 12th treatment - observation cycles at the patients' will.
Placebo Comparator: Arm 2 Drug: Placebo
Two ampoules of placebo injection are intravenously administered once a day, for successive 14 days, followed by 14 days observation period (first cycle). The following treatment (10 days' administration during 14 days) - observation (14 days) cycle is repeated five times (2nd-6th cycles).
Drug: MCI-186 in open label phase
All patients after the double blind phase may receive MCI-186 in 7th until 12th treatment - observation cycles at the patients' will.
