An Open-label Safety and Tolerability Study of Nusinersen (ISIS 396443) in Participants With Spinal Muscular Atrophy Who Previously Participated in ISIS 396443-CS1 (NCT01494701)

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT01780246


The primary objective of this study is to examine the safety and tolerability of nusinersen (ISIS 396443) administered intrathecally to participants with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) who previously participated in ISIS 396443-CS1 (NCT02865109). The secondary objective was to examine the plasma pharmacokinetics of a single dose of ISIS 396443 administered intrathecally to participants with SMA who previously participated in ISIS 396443-CS1.

   months of screening or planned during the duration of the study

   - Presence of an untreated or inadequately treated active infection requiring systemic
   antiviral or antimicrobial therapy any time during the screening period

   - Clinically significant abnormalities in hematology or clinical chemistry parameters

   - Treatment with investigational drug, biological agent, or device within 1-month of
   Screening or 5 half-lives of study agent, whichever is longer. Treatment with
   valproate or hydroxyurea within 1 months of screening. Any history of gene therapy or
