Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

The disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury that is being studied.
Sjögren-Larsson syndrome (SLS) is a rare inherited disorder of fatty aldehyde metabolism characterized by congenital ichthyosis, spastic diplegia, intellectual disability, seizures and a distinctive retinopathy. The disease is caused by bi-allelic mutations in ALDH3A2, which results in deficient activity of fatty aldehyde dehydrogenase (FALDH) and leads to the build-up of harmful long-chain (C16-C20) aldehydes and alcohols. Accumulation of these lipids and their metabolic products in skin, brain and eyes is responsible for the symptoms, which persist lifelong. We hypothesize that elimination of fatty aldehydes using the oral pharmacologic aldehyde trapping agent ADX-629 will negate aldehyde toxicity, improve the biochemical abnormalities and have clinical efficacy for SLS patients. This study is an open label, Phase 1/2, single center investigation of ADX-629 in SLS. The primary objective is to determine whether ADX-629 is safe and tolerable for use in SLS subjects. The secondary objective is to determine the efficacy of ADX-629 in reversing the biochemical abnormalities in SLS. Exploratory objectives are to evaluate the short-term clinical effects of ADX-629 on neurologic, cutaneous and ophthalmologic disease in SLS. Up to 10 subjects with genetically confirmed SLS who meet eligibility criteria will be enrolled. All subjects will be studied at the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Children's Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Subjects will be treated with ADX-629 administered orally as 250 mg tablets for 12 weeks. Subjects will be monitored for safety of ADX-629 every 4 weeks by physical examination and biochemical safety tests. The effects of ADX-629 on SLS-specific biomarkers will be determined after 12 weeks of drug treatment. Clinical tests will monitor neurological, dermatological and ophthalmologic response to drug.
