Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2a study to assess the safety and tolerability of TPN-101 patients with PSP.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Drug: TPN-101, 100 mg/day Drug: TPN-101, 200 mg/day Drug: TPN-101, 400 mg/day Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 2a multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-group, 4-arm study with an open-label treatment phase in patients with PSP. This study includes a 6-week Screening Period, a 24-week Double-blind Treatment Period, a 24-week Open label Treatment Period, and a Follow-up Visit 4 weeks post treatment.

Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2a Study of TPN-101 in Patients With Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)
Actual Study Start Date : October 15, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 15, 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : July 15, 2023


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: TPN-101, Dose A Drug: TPN-101, 100 mg/day
100 mg/day of study investigational drug TPN-101 once daily for 24 weeks (double-blind treatment) followed by 400 mg/day TPN-101 for 24 weeks (open-label treatment).

Experimental: TPN-101, Dose B Drug: TPN-101, 200 mg/day
200 mg/day of study investigational drug TPN-101 once daily for 24 weeks (double-blind treatment) followed by 400 mg/day TPN-101 for 24 weeks (open-label treatment).

Experimental: TPN-101, Dose C Drug: TPN-101, 400 mg/day
400 mg/day of study investigational drug TPN-101 once daily for 24 weeks (double-blind treatment) followed by 400 mg/day TPN-101 for 24 weeks (open-label treatment).

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Placebo
Placebo once daily for 24 weeks (double-blind treatment) followed by 400 mg/day TPN-101 for 24 weeks (open-label treatment).




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the safety and tolerability of TPN-101 in patients with progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
    Incidence and severity of spontaneously reported treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) associated with TPN-101 v. placebo administered for up to 48 weeks in patients with PSP


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the pharmacokinetics of TPN-101 as measured by concentrations of TPN-101 in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
  2. Assess the pharmacodynamic effect of TPN-101 on neurodegeneration as measured by changes in the levels of CSF and blood neurofilament light (NfL) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
  3. Assess the clinical effect of TPN-101 as measured by changes in score on the Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Rating Scale (PSPRS) [ Time Frame: 48 weeks ]
    The PSPRS is comprised of 28 items in six categories: daily activities (by history), behavior, bulbar, ocular motor, limb motor and gait/midline. Scores range from 0 to 100, each item is graded 0-2 (six items) or 0-4 (22 items), with lower scores indicating better clinical and functional status.
