1.Primary Outcome
Title Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Functional Rating Scale - Revised (ALSFRS-R)
Hide Description The primary outcome measure is the difference in the rate of decline in function, as detected by the ALS Functional Rating Scale - Revised (ALSFRS-R) in patients taking rasagiline compared to a database of patients from randomized clinical trials conducted during 1997-2007. Minimum score is 0 (no function) to Maximum score is 48 (normal function)
Time Frame up to 12 months
Hide Outcome Measure Data
Hide Analysis Population Description
The placebo arm are from the randomized, controlled studies in ALS performed during 2004-2010, corrected for symptom duration.
