Other Name: CeleBREX
- low-dose oral celecoxib administered to patients with SMA type II and III is associated with an increase in the levels of peripheral leukocyte SMN protein compared to baseline [ Time Frame: baseline ]1) Investigate change in peripheral leukocyte SMN protein levels from baseline at each dose (40 mcg/kg, 80 mcg/kg, and 160 mcg/kg) of celecoxib.
- Safety Profile Measured by Adverse Event Frequency,Type and Severity [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post ]1) Determine safety profile as measured by number, type and severity of adverse events reported following administration of low dose celecoxib in patients with type II and III SMA
- Recruitment Plan Measured by Number of Potentially Eligible Subjects [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post ]Assess understanding of recruitment barriers measured by the number of potentially eligible subjects and response to study recruitment phase.
- Compliance Measured by Reported Protocol Deviations [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post ]Assess adherence to treatment protocol measured by number of reported protocol deviations.
- Eligibility Measured by Number of Screen Failures [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post ]Assess appropriateness of eligibility criteria based on number of screen failures.
- Delivery Time of Shipped Samples Assessed by Viability [ Time Frame: 4 weeks post ]Assess feasibility of shipping laboratory samples to outside centre for analysis. This will be reported based on the time to deliver and the resulting viability of the received samples by either pre or post testing or both if appropriate.
