 (submitted: September 30, 2020)
Change From Baseline in the Modified Friedreich Ataxia Rating Scale (mFARS) Score at Week 72 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 72 ]
Friedreich Ataxia Rating Scale (FARS) is a disease-specific scale that measures progression of neurological effects of FA. The mFARS is a validated and reliable 93- item scale; comprised of the neurologic component of the FARS and evaluates bulbar, upper limb, lower limb, and upright stability/gait function. For each item, responses categorize the corresponding neurological finding, and the findings are assigned a score ranging from 0 to 3, 4, or 5 with 0 being normal and higher numbers indicative of greater impairment.

Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: September 30, 2020)
  • Change From Baseline in Friedreich Ataxia Rating Scale Activities of Daily Living (FARS-ADL) Score at Week 72 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 72 ]
    The FARS-ADL is a subsection of the FARS questionnaire that assesses activities of daily living, including speech, personal hygiene, feeding, and mobility. Participants rank each category using a scale of 0 (normal) to 4 (severe disability/ inability to carry out activity independently), with lower scores indicative of "normal" function/activity.
  • Change From Baseline in 1-Minute Walk Test (1MWT) at Week 72 [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 72 ]
    The 1MWT is a timed performance test used to measure functional ability, walking endurance, balance, and muscle performance by measuring maximal walking speed in 1 minute. Participants will be instructed to walk as quickly as possible for 1 minute without running. Maximal walking speed will be measured upon completion of the walk and recorded.
  • Number of Falls Through Week 72 [ Time Frame: Baseline through Week 72 ]
    The fall log directly relate to a participant's ability to ambulate during normal daily activities. Thus, each participant will be required to maintain a fall log, which will include the date and time of each fall. Falls as defined by World Health Organization as "inadvertently coming to rest on the ground, floor or other lower level, excluding intentional change in position to rest in furniture, wall or other objects," will be reported.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Study to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Vatiquinone for the Treatment of Participants With Friedreich Ataxia
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized, Parallel-Arm, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study With Open-Label Extension to Assess the Efficacy and Safety of Vatiquinone for the Treatment of Friedreich Ataxia (MOVE-FA)
Brief Summary The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy (using the modified Friedreich Ataxia Rating Scale [mFARS]) and safety of vatiquinone in participants with Friedreich ataxia (FA).
Detailed Description

During the double-blind, placebo-controlled phase, participants will be stratified by baseline mFARS score (<40 versus ≥40), age of disease onset (<14 versus ≥14), and age at screening (≤21 years or >21 years) and randomized to receive either vatiquinone or placebo using interactive response technology (IRT). Following completion of the randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase (72 weeks), participants will enter into an open-label extension phase (24 weeks) during which they will receive open-label treatment with vatiquinone at the dose they received in the randomized phase of the study (for participants entering the extension phase who initially received placebo, the dose of vatiquinone will be determined based on age and weight) and then a safety follow-up (approximately 30 days [±5 days] after last dose or termination visit, whichever is later).

The primary efficacy analysis will be based on change from baseline in mFARS score of participants between 7 and 21 years old. In order to explore the treatment efficacy and safety, approximately an additional 20 participants >21 years of age will be randomized for a total of approximately 126 participants.

    Intervention: Drug: Vatiquinone
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo
    Participants will receive placebo matching to vatiquinone (per age and weight) orally TID for 72 weeks during the placebo-controlled phase and vatiquinone at a dose of either 200 mg orally TID if ˂12 years of age and weighing ˂25 kg or 400 mg orally TID if ≥12 years of age and/or weighing ≥25 kg for 24 weeks during the open-label extension phase.

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion Criteria:

  • mFARS ≥20 to ≤70 at baseline

  • Friedreich ataxia diagnosis (homozygous for guanine-adenine-adenine [GAA] repeat expansion in intron-1 of frataxin [FXN] gene), confirmed by clinical testing (Note: size of GAA repeat is not required for eligibility)
  • Consent to comply with study procedures. For participants under the age of 18 (or age of consent), parent(s)/legal guardian(s) of the participant must agree to comply with the requirements of the study, including the need for frequent and prolonged follow up; parent(s)/legal guardian(s) with custody of the participant must give their consent for participant to enroll in the study.
