FARAFARA Cure FA

Neurological Measures of Progression in Children with FA

Description:
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Florida and University of California Los Angeles are seeking children with FA for a 3 yr study to help advance our understanding of disease progression and validate outcome measures that can be used in future clinical trials.

This study is funded by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA).

It is a natural history study with the following objectives:

Collect data twice a year to understand progression of FA and be able to quantify change in progression over time. Develop and validate outcome measures (timed walk tests, vision tests) that can be used in future clinical trials Make design and implementation of clinical trials more efficient and effective Collect biological samples such as cheek swabs and blood to identify and study biomarkers involved with the disease process and quantify the change in these markers over time Analyze disease progression in FA affected tissues using innovative and noninvasive measures

Key Inclusion Criteria:
You/your child have a confirmed diagnosis of Friedreich’s ataxia
You/your child are between the ages of 2 and 18 years of age

To learn more about the Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria and the process for participation in the study, please contact the Clinical Research Coordinator with any questions.
