We are very pleased to share promising data published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine from the recent CENTAUR trial, conducted by Amylyx Pharmaceuticals, showing that AMX0035, the combination drug of sodium phenylbutyrate–taurursodiol, can slow functional decline in patients with ALS compared with placebo.
New England Journal of Medicine – Trial of Sodium Phenylbutyrate–Taurursodiol for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Sabrina Paganoni, MD, PhD, assistant professor at Harvard Medical School and physician-scientist at the Healey Center for ALS at Massachusetts General Hospital, served as principal investigator on the CENTAUR trial. She is also the keynote speaker at our 10th Annual Les Turner Symposium on ALS to be held virtually this year on November 9. Dr. Paganoni will be presenting on the HEALEY ALS Platform Trial at the Symposium, but will cover some details of the CENTAUR trial in the Clinical Conversations Panel that follows her keynote address.
Together toward a cure,
Andrea Pauls Backman, Chief Executive Officer
