Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety and Tolerability of Dalfampridine-ER in Subjects With Chronic Deficits After Ischemic Stroke Assessed by Number of Treatment Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: up to 36 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    A TEAE is defined as any adverse event with date of onset (or worsening) on or after the start-date of double-blind treatment through 7 days after the last dose of double-blind treatment.

    The severity categories of mild, moderate or severe, are defined below:

    • Mild is defined as causing no limitation of usual activities
    • Moderate is defined as causing some limitation of usual activities
    • Severe is defined as causing inability to carry out usual activities


Other Outcome Measures:
  • Walking Speed Measured by the Timed 25 Foot Walk Test (T25FW) [ Time Frame: Screening visit, Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Motor and Sensory Function as Measured by the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) [ Time Frame: Screening visit, Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Manual Dexterity as Measured by the Box and Block Test [ Time Frame: Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Assistance Required to Perform Activities of Daily Living (ADL) by the Functional Independence Measure (FIM) Scale [ Time Frame: Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Subject Global Impression (SGI) Scale [ Time Frame: Days 8, 15, 22, 29 and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinician Global Impression (CGI) Scale [ Time Frame: Days 8, 15, 22, 29 and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Hand Strength as Measured by the Grip Test and Pinch Tests [ Time Frame: Days 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and 36 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 83
Study Start Date: May 2012
Study Completion Date: March 2013
Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: placebo/dalfampridine-ER

Subjects will be randomized at day 1 to one of two blinded treatment sequences (A or B) in a 2:1 ratio respectively, according to a randomization created prior to the start of the study:

Period 1 = days 1, 8 and 15. Period 2 = Days 22, 29, and 36

Drug: placebo/dalfampridine-ER
Sequence A: placebo in Period 1 and dalfampridine-ER in Period 2. 10mg tablets, will be taken orally, twice daily approximately 12 hours apart
Placebo Comparator: dalfampridine-ER/placebo

Subjects will be randomized at day 1 to one of two blinded treatment sequences (A or B) in a 2:1 ratio respectively, according to a randomization created prior to the start of the study:

Period 1 = days 1, 8 and 15. Period 2 = Days 22, 29, and 36

Drug: dalfampridine-ER/placebo
Sequence B: dalfampridine-ER in Period 1 and placebo in Period 2. 10mg tablets, will be taken orally, twice daily approximately 12 hours apart
