Methods of measuring neuropathy study - University of Rochester

Volunteers, ages 6‐40 needed for Research Study

Dr. David Herrmann (Dept. of Neurology) at the University of Rochester in upstate NY, is conducting a research study of Friedreich’s Ataxia. The study will evaluate how well different methods work, to measure how Friedreich’s Ataxia progresses

People with FA are needed for this study

Study procedures:
  • Brief neurological exam
  • Sensory testing
  • Photograph a small area of your hand & foot, using a microscope that can look into the skin
  • Skin biopsy – optional for some subjects
Altogether, the each study visit takes up to 8 hours

You will be asked to complete 4 study visits over about 2 years.

You will be paid $100 for each completed study visit. Some funds are available for travel expenses for people who have FA and people in their family without FA.

For more information, please contact Beth Wood: (585)276‐6248 -

Part 2 of the Phase II MOXIe study (RTA 408 or omaveloxolone)

Description: FARA is excited to share news that Part 2 of the Phase II MOXIe study (RTA 408 or omaveloxolone), sponsored by Reata, is open, and needs 100 individuals with FA to participate. This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, parallel-group study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of omaveloxolone (RTA 408) 150 mg in patients with Friedreich's ataxia. Participants will be randomized 1:1 to either receive omaveloxolone (RTA 408) 150 mg or placebo.

Key Criteria: Please see the study flyer below to learn about Inclusion and Exclusion Criteria.

Location: This is an international study with sites in the United States, Europe, and Australia.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Muscle Phenotyping in Mitochondrial Disease

Description: The purpose of the study is to use a new research imaging technique, a kind of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to measure important metabolic features of muscle, including mitochondrial function, in people with mitochondrial disease and in healthy individuals.

Key Criteria: Ages 18-65 years

Location: University of Pennsylvania -

It is hoped that this new strategy will help physicians to understand better the health problems of people with mitochondrial disease. Eventually, this could lead to better diagnostic and treatment approaches.
