Id: NCT04388774

Organisation Name: Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai

Overal Status: Recruiting

Start Date: August 19, 2020

Last Update: September 10, 2020

Lead Sponsor: Alexander Kolevzon

Brief Summary: This is a Phase 2A, single dose, open-label study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of a low-dose, 40-minute infusion into the veins (intravenous infusion or "IV") of ketamine in children with ADNP syndrome (Activity-Dependent Neuroprotective Protein). The study team will enroll 10 participants, ages 5 to 12, at Mount Sinai. The study participation is expected to last 4 weeks and will include 5 scheduled clinic visits in order to complete safety monitoring, clinical assessments, and biomarker collection. At the conclusion of this study, the study team expects to demonstrate the safety and tolerability of low-dose ketamine in children with ADNP syndrome. Additionally, the study team anticipates identifying meaningful signals of efficacy in clinical outcome measures using RNA and DNA sequencing to analyze ADNP protein expression and DNA methylation profiles, a natural process by which methyl groups are added to the DNA to change its activity, in order to assess sensitivity to change with low-dose ketamine treatment and inform future phase 3 studies. Ketamine is not currently approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat this syndrome, but it is approved for use in children in other situations, for example in anesthesia.
