Evaluate the safety and efficacy of ammonium tetrathiomolybdate alone and compared with trientine therapy as initial treatment in patients with Wilson disease presenting neurologically.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Wilson Disease||Drug: tetrathiomolybdate Drug: trientine||Phase 3|
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This a double blind, randomized study. Patients are randomized into one of two treatment arms.
Arm I: Patients receive tetrathiomolybdate (TM) 3 times a day with meals and 3 times a day between meals for 8 weeks in the absence of neurologic deterioration or unacceptable toxicity.
Arm II: Patients receive trientine therapy for 8 weeks in the absence of neurologic deterioration and unacceptable toxicity.
Additional therapy (off study): Patients in the TM group may receive maintenance zinc, while those in the trientine group may continue on trientine or switch to zinc.
