Recruitment Status : Active, not recruiting
First Posted : August 23, 2018
Last Update Posted : April 8, 2021
This study was amended from extended access to a clinical trial. Information will be collected about long-term safety and effectiveness of adrabetadex shots in the spine every 2 weeks.
Participants who were already taking adrabetadex will receive their stable dose. Participants who have not ever taken it will start by receiving 400 mg.
The study design will be like the expanded access by Rush University, but for children at least 4 years of age at screening.
Participants will receive treatment every 2 weeks until their doctor finds it does not help them anymore, they withdraw, or the study is stopped for any reason. Participants will not receive additional study treatment after their participation in this protocol.

Participants receive prescribed adrabetadex by intra-thecal injection
administered via lumbar puncture and intra-thecal infusion
- Clinician Global Impression of Change (Clinician-CGIC) [ Time Frame: within approximately 3 years ]The Clinician-CGIC is evaluated using a 7-point Likert scale ranging from 1 (marked improvement) from screening to 7 (marked worsening from screening) at the participant's last visit
- Composite Niemann Pick Type C Severity Scale (NPC-SS) [ Time Frame: within approximately 3 years ]Each of four NPC-SS components (ambulation, cognition, fine motor, and swallowing) are rated on a scale from 0 (better) to 5 (worse). The highest (worst) possible score is 20.
