Full Study Name

A Phase II, Multi-Center, Double-Blind, Randomized, Dose-Ranging, Placebo-Controlled Study to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of CK-2127107 in Patients With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Clinical Study (IRB no. 48982)


The purpose of this study is to examine an investigational drug called CK-2127107 as a potential therapy for the improvement of skeletal muscle function in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Researchers aim to determine how CK-2127107 may work in the body and the relationship between the amount of drug taken and its effect on the body, which is known as pharmacodynamics. The study will also evaluate the safety of CK-2127107 and how well it is tolerated in ALS patients, as well as the pharmacokinetics of CK 2127107 (how much CK 2127107 is absorbed into the blood stream and how long it takes to leave the body).
