Clinical Trial Protocol Description:

The purpose of this study is to determine if SAGE-324 (the study drug) reduces tremor (involuntary movements) in the arm, and whether SAGE-324 might have other effects on your essential tremor (ET) symptoms.

Clinical Trial Eligibility Criteria:

In order to participate you must meet the following criteria:

  • Are ambulatory and between 18 to 80 years of age.
  • Are in good physical health and have no clinically significant findings (excluding essential tremor), as determined by a physician on physical examination, including neurologic and mental status examinations, ECGs, or clinical laboratory tests.
  • Have a diagnosis of ET, as defined by all of the following criteria:
    • Isolated tremor syndrome consisting of bilateral upper limb action tremor
    • At least 3 years duration
    • With or without tremor in other locations (eg, head, voice, or lower limbs).
  • Have the absence of other neurological signs, such as dystonia, ataxia, or parkinsonism, isolated focal tremors (e.g., voice, head), task- and position-specific tremors, sudden tremor onset or evidence of stepwise deterioration of tremor.

You will be excluded from the study if any of the following criteria apply to you:

  • Have the presence of known causes of physiological tremor.
  • Have had newly administered tremorgenic drugs (14 days or 5 half-lives [whichever is longer] prior to Day 1) or presence of alcohol withdrawal state.
  • Have had direct or indirect injury or trauma to the nervous system within 3 months before the onset of tremor.
  • Have had a previous procedure for the treatment of ET, deep brain stimulation, brain lesioning, or magnetic resonance (MR) guided procedure, e.g., MR-guided focused ultrasound.
