MD1003-AMN MD1003 in Adrenomyeloneuropathy

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT02961803
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : November 11, 2016
Last Update Posted : October 9, 2017
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
MedDay Pharmaceuticals SA

Brief Summary:
The primary objective of the trial is to demonstrate the superiority of biotin at 300 mg/day over placebo in the clinical improvement (walking tests) of patients with adrenomyeloneuropathy

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adrenomyeloneuropathy Adrenoleukodystrophy AMN Drug: MD1003 100 mg capsule Drug: Placebo Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:
AMN and progressive multiple sclerosis share some similarities including progressive spastic paraparesis and secondary energy failure leading to progressive axonal degeneration. Therefore, it was hypothesized that high doses of biotin might be efficient in patients with AMN.
