Study of CK-2127107 to Assess the Effects on Muscle Function in Older Adults

What we are studying

The purpose of this study is to see if an investigational medication called CK-2127107 can help make it easier for you to perform your basic daily activities. Limitations in mobility can affect your ability to perform physical tasks such as walking one-quarter mile, climbing a flight of stairs and/or rising from a chair. With the right treatment, you can take steps that could help you increase your mobility and muscle strength during your daily activities. Overtime limited mobility may contribute to increasing your risk for falls, which can lead to injuries and/or permanent disabilities. In this study we will look at the lower limb muscle strength and fatigue in patients like you who complain about having limited mobility and ask participants to take the study medication for up to 24 days to see if it can improve your physical function.
