Parents of children with neuromuscular disease have been already at risk of depression, anxiety and burden. Additionally, the daily lives of children with neuromuscular disease and their parents have been significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, this study investigated parents' perspective on the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on children with neuromuscular diseases and themselves.
This is a Phase 1 2-part, single-center, open-label study in healthy male volunteers. Part A will assess the absorption, metabolism, excretion, and pharmacokinetics of one oral dose of radiolabeled EDG-5506. Part B will assess bioavailability of EDG-5506 with a single oral dose of EDG-5506 and a single intravenous dose of radiolabeled EDG-5506.
The ONYX study is an Open-Label, Multicenter, Extension study that will evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy of Apitegromab in Patients with Type 2 and Type 3 SMA who have completed TOPAZ or SAPPHIRE.
The repeated bout effect (RBE) refers to the adaptation whereby a single bout of eccentric exercise protects against muscle damage from subsequent eccentric bouts. This effect has been shown in many muscle groups using both serum biomarkers, muscle soreness and imaging techniques. Though the effect is well described in healthy, it has never been studied in patients with neuromuscular diseases (NMDs). In healthy, the RBE is only described using eccentric exercise, but unlike healthy persons, patients with NMDs can experience significant muscle damage with concentric exercise. This raises the question, if patients with NMDs could also show RBE when performing concentric exercise.
ALCOTRA (Alpes Latines COoperation TRAnsfrontalière) is one of the European cross-border cooperation programmes covering France and Italy and financed by the ERDF (European Regional Development Fund). It includes the thematic plan (PITEM), called "PROSOL" (PROximity and SOLidarity), set up in the PIEDMONT region (Italy). The PITEM PROSOL strategy aims to develop new social and health services for vulnerable populations in the rural areas and cross-border Franco-Italian mountains of the South regions (Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur, Liguria, Piedmont and Aosta valley). As part of the PITEM PROSOL project, a PROSOL telemedicine platform has been developped for the management of isolated patients from the territory of the Latin Alpes and suffering from neurological diseases (neurodevelopmental disorders, neuromuscular diseases and neurodegenerative diseases). These patients are divided into 3 experimental groups: WOMEN (project 5106), SENIORS (project 4128) and YOUTH (project 5162). A PROSOL e-learning platform (https://www.prosol-elearning.com/) has also been developped for these patients, their caregivers and community physicians to improve knowledge and management of these diseases. Experimentation of these platforms by several participants (and their caregivers) has highlighted the need, often discontent, of a personalized management of physiotherapy for patients with neuromuscular diseases (MNM) and neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's disease). As physical activity has a beneficial and protective effect of these diseases, and inactivity is one of the important risk factors in worsening symptoms contributing to the loss of patients' motor and cognitive functional abilities, a program of self-physical rehabilitation has been designed by neurologists and physiotherapists of expert centers for a personalized and adapted treatment for each patient. The PROSOL TELEKINECT project offers a physical rehabilitation program to be carried out autonomously at home, with coaching by physiotherapists via the telemedicine platform, as well as close monitoring of exercise response regarding the level of pain and fatigue of patients, thus ensuring their maximum safety. The objective of the PROSOL TELEKINECT project is to evaluate the value of an appropriate physical rehabilitation programme for each type of patient. The feasibility and beneficial effects of this program will be assessed using conventional assessments of motor function and patient quality of life, but also using a connected watch coupled with artificial intelligence algorithms to collect and analyze physiological data remotely in real time in the patients' natural environment. The results of this pilot study will be used to lay the foundation for a larger clinical study to test a new digital strategy for self-treatment rehabilitation, aimed at reducing unequal access to care for patients with neuromuscular and neurodegenerative diseases, and residents of transboundary territories, thus offering the establishment of a preventive and supportive approach to these diseases.
In the last 10-15 years, a better understanding of the pathophysiology and molecular genetics of SMA has led to the emergence of previously unavailable pharmacological and genetic treatments.One of these new treatments, Nusinersen, targets SMN2, which is a slightly different copy of SMN1, and increases SMN protein levels. Preclinical studies have provided evidence that neuroprotection is strongly formed, with exercise significantly increasing motor neuron survival independent of SMN expression. In a limited number of clinical studies prior to Nusinersen treatment, it was reported that aerobic exercise training improved maximum oxygen uptake (VO2 max) without causing muscle damage, but still caused fatigue. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of aerobic exercise training on motor and respiratory functions, exercise capacity, fatigue and quality of life in SMA Type III patients who can walk and receive Nusinersen therapy. Twenty cases aged 10-50 years with genetically confirmed SMA diagnosis will be included in this study. The cases to be included in the study will be randomized into 2 groups as the training and control groups. In addition to the routine physiotherapy program, medium-intensity Aerobic Exercise Training will be given to the study group for 12 weeks. Before and 12 weeks after the training, the cases will be evaluated with the Six Minute Walking Test, Submaximal Exercise Test, SMN protein level, function and strength assessments, (FVC) value, fatigue and quality of life scales. In clinical trials, the supporting evidence for aerobic interventions in SMA is limited. Additional studies on aerobic intervention parameters (frequency, intensity and duration) are needed.The results of this study will determine the feasibility of aerobic exercise training and provide important guidance for the clinical management of SMA patients.
The aim of the investigator's study was to investigate translating the PedsQL 3.0 Neuromuscular Module for 2-to 4- Year-old and using it in clinics reliably and validity with a Turkish version of the PedsQL Generic Core (Pediatric Quality of Life Questionnare) in children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy in Turkey
AOC 1001-CS2 (MARINA-OLE) is a Phase 2 extension of the AOC 1001-CS1 (MARINA) study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of multiple-doses of AOC 1001 Administered Intravenously to Adult Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1) patients
Objectives: - To evaluate the feasibility of delivering the Neuromuscular Bridges Self-Management Programme (NM Bridges) in addition to usual care. - To evaluate the feasibility of an implementation strategy package and identify barriers and facilitators to implementation of NM Bridges at a specialist neuromuscular centre. Type of trial: A hybrid II feasibility trial Trial design and methods:A hybrid trial which simultaneously investigates both the feasibility of NM Bridges, and the feasibility of a package of implementation strategies. Trial duration per participant: 4 months Estimated total trial duration: 1 year Planned trial sites: Single site Total number of participants planned: 60 Main inclusion/exclusion criteria: Participants will be over the age of 18, with a diagnosis of neuromuscular disease from a neurologist at the Queen Square Centre for Neuromuscular Diseases (CNMD). Participants will be deemed by healthcare professionals to have the capacity to give informed consent to participate in the research. Statistical methodology and analysis: This is a single-arm cohort study of feasibility of the NM Bridges intervention. The primary analysis will be of feasibility of conducting a trial of the intervention within a single pilot site. Secondary analysis will be calculation of effect sizes of patient reported outcome measures (PROMS). The investigators will also be interviewing participants and qualitative analysis methods will be used.
In a randomized cross-over design, two different modes of a mechanical insufflator/exsufflator applied to pediatric subjects with neuromuscular disease will be compared with respect to their short term effect on lung function, i.e. lung volume.
