Change from baseline in safety labs including hematology, coagulation, chemistry, renal function, and liver function tests at week 24 .
Change from baseline in ice water drinking time, in seconds, at week 24. Times greater than 8 seconds to complete the drinking test are considered abnormal.
Penetration aspiration score results assessed by VFS comparing baseline, prior to treatment, to week 24. This is an 8 point scale. The higher the number the greater the risk of aspiration. The result reported is the difference from the baseline scores.
Summary of Quality of Life in Swallowing Disorders total symptom score results over time, change from baseline at weeks 12 and 24 This is a 100 point scale. The higher the number the better the quality of life.
