Brief Summary:
The primary purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of BHV-4157 (Troriluzole) 140 milligrams (mg) once daily versus placebo after 8 weeks of treatment in subjects with spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Spinocerebellar Ataxias Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 1 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 2 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 3 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 6 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 7 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 8 Spinocerebellar Ataxia Genotype Type 10 Drug: Troriluzole Drug: Placebo Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The study was conducted in 2 phases: Randomization Phase (8 weeks) followed by an open-label Extension Phase (48 weeks). During the Randomization Phase, participants received either Troriluzole 140 mg or matching placebo up to 8 weeks. Participants who agreed to enter the Extension Phase continued dosing of Troriluzole 140 mg for 48 weeks. The study was subsequently amended to follow participants for a total of 192 weeks in the Extension Phase.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in Total Score on the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA) at Randomization Phase Week 8 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Randomization Phase Week 8 ]
    The severity of ataxia was assessed with the SARA, an 8-item clinical rating scale from 0 (no ataxia) to 40 (most severe ataxia). The total score was derived as the sum of the individual items, which included gait (0-8), stance (0-6), sitting (0-4), speech disturbance (0-6), finger chase (0-4), nose-finger test (0-4), fast alternating hand movements (0-4), and heel-shin slide (0-4). Since the finger chase, nose-finger test, fast alternating hand movements, and heel-shin slide were repeated on both the right and left side, the average of the right and left side assessments was used to derive the total score. A negative change in score shows improvement.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Deaths, Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), Adverse Events (AEs) Leading to Discontinuation, and Treatment-Emergent AEs (TEAEs) During the Randomization Phase [ Time Frame: AEs from first dose of study drug to 2 weeks after the last dose (up to 10 weeks). SAEs from signing of informed consent form (ICF) to the start of the Extension (Ext) Phase or 30 days after the last dose (up to 12 weeks). ]
    An AE was defined as any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a pre-existing medical condition, unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study drug, whether or not related to study drug. An SAE was defined as an event which was fatal or life threatening, required or prolonged hospitalization, was significantly or permanently disabling or incapacitating, constituted a congenital anomaly or a birth defect, or suspected transmission of an infectious agent, or encompassed any other clinically significant event that could jeopardize the subject or require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the aforementioned outcomes. TEAEs were defined as those AEs that developed, worsened, or became serious after the first dose of study drug.

  2. Number of Participants With Deaths, Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), Adverse Events (AEs) Leading to Discontinuation, and Treatment Emergent AEs (TEAEs) During the Extension Phase [ Time Frame: AEs from first dose Ext Phase troriluzole to 2 weeks after last dose (up to 50 weeks after last subject enrolled in Ext Phase). SAEs from signing of ICF to 30 days after last dose (up to 52 weeks after last subject enrolled in Ext Phase). ]
    An AE was defined as any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a pre-existing medical condition, unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study drug, whether or not related to study drug. An SAE was defined as an event which was fatal or life threatening, required or prolonged hospitalization, was significantly or permanently disabling or incapacitating, constituted a congenital anomaly or a birth defect, or suspected transmission of an infectious agent, or encompassed any other clinically significant event that could jeopardize the subject or require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the aforementioned outcomes. TEAEs were defined as those AEs that developed, worsened, or became serious after the first dose of study drug.

  3. Number of Participants Who Received at Least One Dose of Troriluzole in the Randomization Phase or Extension Phase With Deaths, Serious Adverse Events (SAEs), Adverse Events (AEs) Leading to Discontinuation, and Treatment Emergent AEs (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: AEs from first dose of troriluzole to 2 weeks after last dose (up to 50 weeks after last Ext subject enrolled or up to 58 weeks after last Randomization [Rand] subject enrolled). SAEs from signing of ICF to 30 days after the last dose of troriluzole. ]
    An AE was defined as any new untoward medical occurrence or worsening of a pre-existing medical condition, unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease temporally associated with the use of study drug, whether or not related to study drug. An SAE was defined as an event which was fatal or life threatening, required or prolonged hospitalization, was significantly or permanently disabling or incapacitating, constituted a congenital anomaly or a birth defect, or suspected transmission of an infectious agent, or encompassed any other clinically significant event that could jeopardize the subject or require medical or surgical intervention to prevent one of the aforementioned outcomes. TEAEs were defined as those AEs that developed, worsened, or became serious after the first dose of study drug.

  4. Number of Participants With Impression of Benefit Via Use of the Patient Global Impression of Change (PGI-C) Index Scale During Randomization Phase [ Time Frame: Randomization Phase Week 8 ]
    PGI-C is a patient self-reported global index scale that was used to rate the response of a condition to therapy. Participants rated their impression of benefit based on the following 7 categories: No change (or condition has gotten worse); Almost the same, hardly any change at all; A little better, but no noticeable change; Somewhat better, but the change has not made any real difference; Moderately better, and a slight but noticeable change; Better and a definitive improvement that has made a real and worthwhile difference; A great deal better and a considerable improvement that has made all the difference.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change From Randomization Baseline in Total Score on the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA) at Extension Phase Week 48 [ Time Frame: Randomization Baseline, Extension Phase Week 48 ]
    The severity of ataxia was assessed with the SARA, an 8-item clinical rating scale from 0 (no ataxia) to 40 (most severe ataxia). The total score was derived as the sum of the individual items, which included gait (0-8), stance (0-6), sitting (0-4), speech disturbance (0-6), finger chase (0-4), nose-finger test (0-4), fast alternating hand movements (0-4), and heel-shin slide (0-4). Since the finger chase, nose-finger test, fast alternating hand movements, and heel-shin slide were repeated on both the right and left side, the average of the right and left side assessments was used to derive the total score. A negative change in score shows improvement.
