The study is evaluating several efficacy endpoints including functional activity (ALSFRS-R), respiratory function, muscle strength, and non-invasive ventilation (NIV) utilization in addition to monitoring the safety and tolerability of MN-166 60 mg/day versus placebo when administered in combination with riluzole in subjects with ALS.

MediciNova Announces FDA Approval of Protocol for Phase 2 Trial of MN-001 in IPF

MediciNova Inc. announced that FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has approved the protocol for a clinical trial of MN-001 (tipelukast) for the treatment of moderate to severe IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis). Importantly, due to safety data from previous clinical studies of MN-001, FDA has agreed that MediciNova may proceed with a Phase 2 study as the first clinical trial of MN-001 in IPF. The IPF protocol was filed under MediciNova's open IND (Investigational New Drug Application) in FDA'sDivision of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Rheumatology Products (DPARP). FDA has granted orphan-drug designation to MN-001 for the treatment of IPF, which will provide MediciNova with seven years of marketing exclusivity if MN-001 is approved for IPF.
