Safety and Efficacy of TRO19622 as add-on Therapy to Riluzole Versus Placebo in Treatment of Patients Suffering From Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) (MITOTARGET)
The purpose of the assay is to assess the safety and the efficacy of TRO19622 330 mg QD as add-on therapy to riluzole 50 mg bid in the treatment of patients suffering from ALS, as compared to placebo, assessed by the 18-month survival rate.

Drug: Placebo Comparator
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
|Official Title:||Phase II/III, Multicenter, Randomized, Parallel Group, Double-blind, Placebo Controlled Study to Assess Safety and Efficacy of TRO19622 in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Patients Treated With Riluzole|
- The primary outcome measure will be the overall 18-month survival rate. [ Time Frame: Survival will be calculated from the date of randomization until the date of death or last follow-up censored at 18 months (548 days). ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Survival without occurrence of tracheostomy, chronic IV or NIV defined as >23h of NIV daily for 14 consecutive days. [ Time Frame: Time to failure will be defined as the time from randomization to the time of the first event to consider (Tracheostomy, IV or NIV) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Total score of the 48-point ALS Functional Rating Scale Revised, with a focus on the 9-month assessment [ Time Frame: Inclusion, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9, Month 12, Month 15 and Month 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Slow Vital Capacity (SVC) as a percentage of predicted SVC and survival with SVC >50% [ Time Frame: Screening, Inclusion, Month 1, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9, Month 12, Month 15 and Month 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- Total Score of Manual Muscle Testing of 34 muscle groups [ Time Frame: Inclusion, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9, Month 12, Month 15 and Month 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- The single-item Mc Gill Quality of life scale [ Time Frame: Inclusion, Month 1, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9, Month 12, Month 15 and Month 18 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

2 Capsules of TRO19622 (330mg) once a day with the noon meal as add-on therapy to riluzole 50mg bid

A stand alone treatment with TRO19622 is not acceptable for ethical reasons. Riluzole is an approved and widely used ALS treatment in the European community, in Japan and in the USA.
Therefore, in this study, TRO19622 will be assessed as add-on to riluzole in patients suffering from ALS.
At the start of the study, patients will be randomized to one of two groups : TRO19622 (330 mg QD or placebo (once a day).
Each treatment will be administered for 18 months under double-blind conditions. The product under evaluation will be administered to patients receiving the standard of care for ALS, including riluzole.
Riluzole dosage (50 mg bid) must be stable and well tolerated for at least one month prior to inclusion into the study.
After the double-blind period, open-label administration of TRO19622 will be allowed for safety and survival assessments and until efficacy results are available.
A separate open-label protocol will be written 6 months after the randomization of the last patient into the study.
