Brief Summary:
This study will assess the effects and safety of PTC857 treatment in participants diagnosed with ALS.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Drug: PTC857 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Participants will be randomized to 1 of 2 treatment groups: PTC857 or matching placebo. Following successful completion of the 24-week Treatment Period, participants have the option to receive open-label PTC857 in the Long-term Extension Period for 28 weeks.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 258 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel Study to Assess the Efficacy, Safety, Tolerability, PK, and Biomarker Effects of PTC857 in Adult Subjects With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (CARDINALS)
Actual Study Start Date : May 15, 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 31, 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : February 28, 2025


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: PTC857

Participants will receive PTC857 during the 24-Week Treatment Period.

Following successful completion of the Treatment Period, participants have the option to receive open-label PTC857 in the Long-term Extension Period for 28 weeks.

Drug: PTC857
PTC8657 will be administered as an oral solution twice a day.

Active Comparator: Placebo

Participants will receive matching placebo during the 24-Week Treatment Period.

Following successful completion of the Treatment Period, participants have the option to receive open-label PTC857 in the Long-term Extension Period for 28 weeks.

Drug: Placebo
Matching placebo will be administered as an oral solution twice a day.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in ALS Functional Rating Scale-Revised (ALSFRS-R) Score at Week 24 (Intention-to-Treat [ITT] 1 Analysis Population) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    The ITT1 analysis population will include all participants who receive at least 1 dose of study drug and have a decrease in the ALSFRS-R score of between 1 and 4 points (inclusive) during the Screening Period.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in ALSFRS-R Score at Week 24 (ITT2 Analysis Population) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
    The ITT2 analysis population will include all participants who receive at least 1 dose of study drug.

  2. Number of Participants with Treatment-emergent Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Week 52 ]
  3. Change from Baseline in Slow Vital Capacity at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  4. Change from Baseline in Sniff Nasal Inspiratory Pressure at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  5. Change from Baseline in Modified Norris Scale Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  6. Change from Baseline in ALS Cognitive Behavioral Screen Assessment at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  7. Rate of Needing Respiratory Support/Intubation and/or Death [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  8. Length of Time to Needing Respiratory Support/Intubation and/or Death [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  9. Combined Assessment of Function and Survival (CAFS) Score [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
  10. Change from Baseline in ALS Assessment Questionnaire (ALSAQ-40) Score at Week 24 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 24 ]
  11. Area under the Concentration-time Curve (AUC) of PTC857 in Plasma [ Time Frame: Predose through Week 24 ]
  12. Maximum Observed Concentration (Cmax) of PTC857 in Plasma [ Time Frame: Predose through Week 24 ]
  13. AUC of PTC857 in Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) [ Time Frame: Predose through Week 24 ]
  14. Cmax of PTC857 in CSF [ Time Frame: Predose through Week 24 ]

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • ALS with preserved function, defined as:

    1. Onset of the first symptom leading to the diagnosis of ALS ≤24 months at the time of the initial Screening Visit
    2. Revised EL Escorial criteria of either:

    (i) Clinically definite ALS (ii) Clinically probable ALS

  • A total ALSFRS-R score of at least 34 at the start of the Screening Period
  • No significant respiratory compromise as evidenced by slow vital capacity ≥60% at the start of the Screening Period
  • All concomitant medications (both prescription and over the counter), including standard-of-care therapy riluzole, edaravone, or sodium phenylbutyrate/taurursodiol, and non-pharmacologic therapy regimens should be stable and unchanged from 30 days prior to the start of the Screening Period and intend to remain stable and unchanged throughout the course of the study
  • Female participants must have a negative breast cancer imaging screening status (not considered clinically abnormal and/or requiring further evaluation/treatment) within 6 months prior to the Screening Visit, or during the Screening Period.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Females who are pregnant or nursing or plan to become pregnant during the study
  • Participants with clinically significant gastrointestinal, renal, hepatic, neurologic, hematologic, endocrine, oncologic, pulmonary, immunologic, psychiatric, or cardiovascular/ischemic disease or any other condition that, in the opinion of the investigator, would jeopardize the safety of the participant or impact the validity of the study results
  • Any clinically significant medical or psychiatric condition or medical history that, in the opinion of the investigator or the medical monitor, would interfere with the participant's ability to participate in the study or increase the risk of participation for that participant
  • Current participation in any other investigational study with an investigational product or participation within 30 days prior to the start of the Screening Period or 5 half-lives of the previously taken investigational drug, whichever is longer
  • Participant has previously received PTC857
  • Participant is receiving a combination of edaravone and sodium phenylbutyrate/taurursodiol treatment, where applicable, within 30 days prior to the start of the Screening Period
  • For female participants, any past medical history of breast cancer, regardless of remission status, or any first degree relative with history of breast cancer
