GSK249320 is a monoclonal antibody directed against myelin associated glycoprotein (MAG), a protein that inhibits axonal regeneration. GSK249320 acts as a MAG antagonist, and through this activity it is hypothesised that it will enhance recovery from neuronal degeneration following acute axonal injury, which occurs in spinal cord injury or stroke. This study is now completed.

Alseres Pharmaceuticals

Safety of Riluzole in Patients With Acute Spinal Cord Injury
The primary aim of the study is to develop acute care safety and pharmacokinetic profiles of riluzole in patients who have sustained a acute traumatic spinal cord injury. Secondary objectives are to conduct exploratory analyses of functional outcomes for purposes of planning a subsequent Phase II randomized study of the efficiency of Riluzole for the treatment of acute traumatic spinal cord injury.
