Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: masitinib 3 mg/kg/day (1) + riluzole Drug: Masitinib (AB1010)
4.5 mg/kg/day, 3 mg/kg/day
Drug: Riluzole
Experimental: masitinib 4.5 mg/kg/day (2) + riluzole Drug: Masitinib (AB1010)

Drug: Riluzole
Placebo Comparator: placebo + riluzole Drug: Riluzole Drug: Placebo

Detailed Description:
Masitinib is novel tyrosine kinase inhibitor that targets microglia and mast cells through inhibiting a limited number of kinases. Masitinib blocks microglia proliferation and activation, and mast cell-mediated degranulation, the release of cytotoxic substances that might further damage the motor nerves.
