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.
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04644003

Brief Summary:
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate safety and tolerability, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics, as well as exploratory efficacy of STP1, in a subgroup of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Autism Spectrum Disorder Drug: STP1 Drug: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:
After obtaining written informed consent, those patients who are deemed eligible for the study, will be randomized on Day 1, in a double-blinded manner, in a 3:1ratio to receive either oral STP1 (twice daily) or placebo (twice daily). The total study duration is 6 weeks, including a screening phase of up to 2 weeks, a treatment phase of 2 weeks and a post-treatment follow-up phase of 2 weeks.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: STP1 Low Dose
1 capsule and 1 tablet per intake
Drug: STP1
STP1 is a combination of two drugs, a PDE inhibitor and an NKCC1 inhibitor

Experimental: STP1 High Dose
1 capsule and 1 tablet per intake
Drug: STP1
STP1 is a combination of two drugs, a PDE inhibitor and an NKCC1 inhibitor

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
1 placebo capsule and 1 placebo tablet per intake
Drug: Placebo
Placebo medication (capsule and tablet) identical in appearance to active medication

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Incidence, nature and severity of adverse events, serious adverse events and adverse events of special interest

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Plasma concentration of STP1 (PK) [ Time Frame: Day 1, Day 7, Day 14, Day 15 (and optionally: Day 16, Day 17 and Day 18) ]
    Standard non-compartmental analysis

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. ABC-C: Aberrant Behavior Checklist-Community [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Assess maladaptive behaviors across 5 original subscales: Irritability, Social Withdrawal, Stereotypic Behavior, Hyperactive/non-compliance, Inappropriate Speech

  2. OACIS: Ohio Autism Clinical Impression Scale [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    The OACIS is composed of two scales: the OACIS-Severity scale (OACIS-S), which measures global severity of illness at a given point in time as well as scores for 9 anchors: social interactions; aberrant/abnormal behaviors; repetitive/ritualistic behaviors; verbal communication; non-verbal communication; hyperactivity/inattention; anxiety/fears; sensory sensitivities; restricted and narrow interests and the OACIS improvement scale (OACIS-C), which permits a global evaluation by the clinician of the subject's improvement over time. The OACIS-S is a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (no symptoms) to 7 (very severe). The OACIS-C is a seven-point scale, ranging from 1 (very much improved) to 7 (very much worse).

  3. CGI-S: Clinical Global Impressions-Severity reflected by the Clinical Global Impressions-Improvement (CGI-I) scale [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Illness severity rating is made on a scale of 1 to 7, with 1 being "normal not at all mentally ill" and 7 being "among the most extremely ill patients". Subsequently, the patient's condition on the study drug (or placebo) is compared to the patient's condition before the initiation of the study drug (or placebo) (baseline) via additional CGI-S ratings or the CGI-I item. The CGI is a clinician-rated scale utilizing history from the caregiver and incorporating it into a clinical rating. The CGI-I will be used to judge the change in clinical impression as 1=very much improved since the initiation of treatment; 2=much improved; 3=minimally improved; 4=no change from baseline (the initiation of treatment); 5=minimally worse; 6= much worse; 7=very much worse since the initiation of treatment

  4. NIH-TCB: NIH Toolbox Cognitive Battery [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Computer-based test, that assesses cognition

  5. KiTAP test battery: The Test of Attentional Performance [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    The KiTAP test is a computer-based Continuous Performance Tasks (CPT) and Executive Function (EF) battery test

  6. Social Responsiveness Scale, 2nd Edition (SRS-2) [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    The SRS-2 is a 65-item parent/caregiver rating scale used to assess the severity of social impairment within patients with ASD.

  7. CSHQ: Children Sleep Habit Questionnaire [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    The CSHQ is a retrospective, 45-item parent questionnaire, which includes items relating to a number of key sleep domains that encompass the major presenting clinical sleep complaints in this age group: bedtime behavior and sleep onset; sleep duration; anxiety around sleep; behavior occurring during sleep and night wakings; sleep-disordered breathing; parasomnias; and morning waking/daytime sleepiness.

  8. EEG: Electroencephalogram [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Auditory Event Related Potentials (ERP) will be measured.

  9. Eye-tracking [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Change from baseline in eye gaze to eye regions during viewing of static faces and change in eye gaze to social scene viewing during viewing of dynamic video

  10. Lactate/Pyruvate Ratio - L:P [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    Change from baseline, measured in blood
