a study on Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
This is a multi-center, open label, pilot futility clinical trial of the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics and preliminary efficacy of oral salsalate in up to 10 patients with PSP.
This is a multi-center, open label, pilot futility clinical trial of the safety, tolerability, pharmacodynamics and preliminary efficacy of oral salsalate in up to 10 patients with PSP. All participants will be administered 2,250 mg daily [1,500 mg every day before noon (every AM) and 750 mg every night at bedtime (every HS)] for 6 months.
If ≥3 patients experience drug limiting toxicity (DLT), as defined below, the study will be terminated.
A DLT is defined as: 1) any Grade 3 or higher adverse event (AE) per National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) for which there is reasonable possibility that salsalate caused the event, 2) any Grade 2 AE in the CTCAE system organ class of nervous system disorders that is considered clinically significant and for which there is reasonable possibility that salsalate caused the event, or 3) any Grade 2 or higher treatment-related adverse events during administration that do not resolve promptly with supportive treatment.
An interim futility analysis will be performed after five subjects have completed 6 months of study drug treatment. If the criteria listed in the Statistical Methods section of this synopsis are met, an additional 5 subjects will be enrolled in the trial. If not, the trial will be terminated.
