An Open-Label Study to Assess the Safety and Tolerability of a Single Intrathecal Dose of ISIS 396443 in Patients with Spinal Muscular Atrophy who Previously Participated In ISIS 396443-CS1
This study will test the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a single dose of ISIS 396443 (9 mg) administered as an intrathecal injection by lumbar puncture (LP).
After Informed consent/assent is obtained, subjects will undergo a Screening evaluation no greater than 28 days prior to dose administration at which time their eligibility for the study will be examined. Subjects who meet the eligibility criteria will be admitted to the study center on Study Day 1, undergo pre-dose evaluations, and then receive an LP injection of study drug (9 mg ISIS 396443). The subject will remain at the study center for at least 6 hours post-injection for safety monitoring and laboratory specimen collection. Subjects will return to the study center on Study Day 8, 85, and 169 for follow-up evaluations. Additionally, the study center will monitor the subject and #146;s condition through telephone contact on Study Day 2, 15, 29, 57, and 127.
