Single arm study
This is a single arm study.
. Triheptanoin will be taken 4 times per day (approximately every 6 hours: prior to breakfast, lunch and dinner and a mid-afternoon snack) by mouth. It is dosed 4 times per day, divided evenly.
Other Name: C7
- Neuropsychological attention scores [ Time Frame: Medication taken daily for 6 months. ]To evaluate the impact of triheptanoin supplementation on measures of neuropsychological function primarily indicative of attention in G1D subjects receiving normal diet. These measures include one of two quantitative scales WPPSI-IV (Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence; if younger than 7 years old), or WASI-II (Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence; if older than 8 years old) depending on age.
- EEG changes: spike-wave activity duration in EEG (electroencephalogram) tracings [ Time Frame: Medication taken daily for 6 months. ]Expecting to find a greater than 30% decrease in spike-wave activity determined as percent duration of spike-wave activity over the total duration of EEG.
- Ataxia scores [ Time Frame: Medication taken daily for 6 months. ]
Ataxia is scored 0 (normal; no ataxia) to 30 (severe ataxia) per modified ICARS ( International Cooperative Ataxia Rating Scale) scale in Schmahmann, J. D., Gardner, R., MacMore, J. and Vangel, M. G. (2009), Development of a brief ataxia rating scale (BARS) based on a modified form of the ICARS.
Mov. Disord., 24: 1820-1828
- Global impression scale [ Time Frame: Medication taken daily for 6 months. ]Scores range from 1 (very much improved) through to 7 (very much worse)
