Age: 18 to 70 years old
Healthy Volunteers: No
Keywords: multiple sclerosis
Type: Drug study, Phase 3
The purpose of this study is to look at the long-term safety and efficiency of experimental ADS-5102. It will be studied in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with walking impairment.

"Experimental" means the study drug formulation being tested is not approved by the FDA.

The active ingredient in ADS-5102 is called amantadine. Amantadine is FDA approved to help prevent and treat signs and symptoms of infection caused by some forms of the influenza virus. It is also approved as a treatment for Parkinson’s disease and other nervous system disorders.

ADS-5102 is a formulation of amantadine that allows the drug to be taken up by the body slowly. This kind of formulation is called an extended release (ER) formulation. This allows the drug to be taken once a day.

In MS, neurons of the central nervous system are damaged due to inflammation, and the communication of one neuron to another is impaired. Amantadine may improve the communication between neurons that has been impaired due to MS. Thereby, improve the central nervous system’s control of walking.

The study team will make sure you qualify to take part in the study. Qualified participants will receive detailed information about the study. This may include a list of study-related tests and procedures.

Who can participate

Inclusion criteria:

  • Signed a current IRB-approved informed consent form
  • Successful completion of a prior double blind study of ADS-5102 in patients with MS walking impairment.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Based on the judgment of the investigator or Medical Monitor, participation in the study would jeopardize the safety of the subject.
  • If female, is pregnant or lactating
  • If a sexually active female, is not surgically sterile or at least 2 years post-menopausal, or does not agree to utilize a highly effective hormonal method of contraception (an IUD, or vasectomized male partner is also acceptable), in combination with a barrier method, from baseline through at least 4 weeks after the completion of study treatment. If a sexually active male, does not agree to utilize condoms from screening through at least 4 weeks after the completion of study treatment.
  • Anticipated treatment with any amantadine formulation other than ADS-5102
  • Planned participation in another interventional clinical trial
