Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Narcolepsy Drug: Active comparator: Modafinil + placebo Drug: THN102 300/3 Drug: THN102 300/27 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The 3 double blind periods (2-week) follow a stabilisation period for modafinil at 300 mg/day (open, 2-week) and are followed by a one-week washout period with the same modafinil dose.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) [ Time Frame: 14 days after the beginning of treatment period ]
    Range 0 to 24, low score indicates good outcome


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 14-item Fatigue Scale [ Time Frame: 14 days after the beginning of treatment period ]
    Fatigue scale is a rating scale completed by the participants at each visit starting from baseline to last visit; 14 questions to be ticked off by "yes" or "No" by the patient. 0 : No fatigue 14 : worst fatigue condition

    EQ-5D is a quality of life questionnaire filled in by the participants from screening to the last visit (all visits).

    The EQ-5D assesses the status on the day of visit and not over the past week. It has two parts:

    The first part is a descriptive system that assesses five distinct health states/dimensions: Mobility (MO), Self-care (SC), Usual activities (UA), Pain/discomfort, Anxiety/depression (AD). A higher score signifies a higher number of symptoms present.

    The second part is a 100 mm VAS (EQ-VAS). An increase in VAS indicates an improvement in health state.

    For each item the investigator or his/her designee has to chose 1 condition among 7 : Very much improved/ Much improved/ Minimally improved/ No change/ Minimally worse/ Much worse/ Very much worse.

    1 is the best score (very much improved) 7 is the worse score (very much worse)


  5. Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) evaluation for depressive symptoms (including suicidal thoughts). The scale is completed by the participants from baseline, to last visit (all except screening visit). The questionnaire contains 21 items. Each must be scored from 0 to 3, minimum score = 0, maximum score = 63. A high score indicates increased severity of depression.

    1 is the best score (very much improved) 7 is the worse score (very much worse)

  12. EQ-5D European Quality of Life EQ-5D (Visual Analogic Scale Part) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]

    EQ-5D is a quality of life questionnaire filled in by the participants from screening to the last visit (all visits).

    The EQ-5D is a questionnaire assessing the quality of life of the patient. It has two parts:

    The first part is a descriptive system that assesses five distinct health states/dimensions: Mobility (MO), Self-care (SC), Usual activities (UA), Pain/discomfort, Anxiety/depression (AD). A higher score signifies a higher number of symptoms present.

    The second part is a 100 mm Visual analogic scale (EQ-VAS). An higher score in VAS indicates a better health state.

    The questionnaire is assessed at baseline and all subsequent visits
