Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE Clinical Trial of Glatiramer Acetate in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Official Title  ICMJE A Multinational, Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group Study to Assess the Efficacy, Tolerability and Safety of 40 mg Glatiramer Acetate Injection in Subjects With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Brief Summary Teva is developing 40 mg/ml Glatiramer Acetate (GA) Injection , administered once daily under the skin, for the treatment of ALS. The study drug is a higher dose formulation of Copaxone® (20 mg/ml GA), a marketed medication, approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. GA is an immunomodulating drug that has anti inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, which are believed to be of therapeutic value in ALS. The study treatment duration is 1 year (52 weeks).
