IPN-007

Postby Catherine27 » Sun Nov 16, 2014 6:34 am

What does anyone know of the new drug being developed specifically for PSP called IPN-007? I was just down at the Penn State-Hershey Medical Center as my husband is part of a clinical study targeted towards trying to differentiate between Parkinson's, PSP and MSA earlier on in the course of the decease and they told us about this study. I have searched the internet and so far have not found anything more than a mention of it, let me know if anyone know where I can find out more.
Robin I am hoping you have some inside as I believe it is somehow associated with San Francisco. By the way it is being researched by Bristol Meyers.

Thanks,
Kelly

I will ask friends at UCSF.

Thanks to you and your husband for participating in research. Is the study funded by the Udall Foundation? Udall is funding a similar study at Stanford.

The study my husband took part in is a government study that we found on the Cure PSP site, it was tagged NCT01888185 - identifying biomarkers of Parkinson's Disease using MRI. They were also trying to determine if they would be able to determine the difference earlier on of Parkinson's, PSP and MSA using MRI, spinal fluid, blood, and urine. It is an observational study, it was all I could find close to where we live, it was a 5 hour trip for us to get there and participate. It was not specifically targeted for PSP but we were able to meet another specialist doctor in movement disorders and learn of the IPN-007 trials and were added to the list of possible participants. My husband and I are hoping by getting involved it will help the fight for these terrible neurological deceases. Without willing volunteers research is slowed.

I made a fairly thorough search for clinical trials for IPN-007; there is a glut of financial data available, but as far as I can tell no publicly available clinical results are available. One can hope, but???

Courage, Joe Blanc
