Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine if oral treatment with ONO-2506PO in patients diagnosed with ALS, who have had onset of muscle weakness within 14 months of randomization, could lead to the slowing of decline in respiratory function, functional status, muscle strength, quality of life and survival compared with placebo group.
