Does anyone know how the Novartis clinical trial (https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/study/NCT02024932?view=record) is going? I have tried several times to volunteer and have asked for information with no reply. As I recall, it was to be a 2 part test and part one should be complete by now.
Well, we are all anxiously awaiting news. It is difficult to have patience when you have a progressive disorder.
We have reached out to NIH for an update, but here is what we know. The trial is still in Phase A testing dosage, safety, etc. Should the results of testing with the current patients be positive, then they will move on to Phase B where there will be more patients involved. I wouldn't count on any dates, but I am hoping Phase B will start this spring or early summer.
Thanks very much. I will happily volunteer for Phase B.

And I believe phase B was supposed to be finishing about now. It would be good to get an update and at least find out if Dr. Fischbeck is still 'optimistic'?
Dr. Fischbeck was kind enough to respond to my inquiry. I realize it isn't anything definitive, but it means the results will be published soon.
