Nct02310763 duchenne muscular dystrophy clinical trial pfizer antiemetic drugs side effects

This is a Phase 2 randomized, 2-period, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple ascending dose study to evaluate the safety, efficacy, PK and PD of PF-06252616 administered to ambulatory boys diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Three intravenous (IV) dose levels will be investigated in a within subject dose escalating fashion. Subjects will be randomly assigned to 1 of 3 sequence groups for approximately 96 weeks (2 periods of 48 weeks each). In period 1, two of the sequence groups will receive PF-06252616 and one sequence group will receive placebo. In period 2, the placebo group will switch to PF-06252616 and the two remaining sequence groups will either receive placebo or PF-06252616. Efficacy will be based on an observed mean change from baseline on function (4 stair climb) of PF-06252616 as compared to the placebo at the end of period 1.


Period 2 provides an opportunity to evaluate PK. Subjects will receive monthly IV infused doses of either PF-06252616 or placebo and will undergo safety evaluations (Laboratory, cardiac monitoring, physical exams, x-ray, MRI), functional evaluations (pulmonary function testing, 4 stair climb, range of motion, strength testing, Northstar Ambulatory Assessment, upper limb functional testing and the six minute walk test), pharmacokinetic testing and pharmacodynamic testing to evaluate changes in muscle volume (MRI).

• Ambulatory boys age 6 to or = 0.33 but 0.2 mg/kg) in dosage or dose regimen (not related to body weight change) for at least 3 months immediately prior to signing the informed consent and a reasonable expectation that dosage and dosing regimen will not change significantly for the duration of the study.

• Compromised cardiac function (left ventricular ejection fraction 55% as determined on a screening cardiac MRI or echocardiogram). Subjects may be receiving ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitors or beta blockers, ARB (angiotensin II receptor antagonist) or aldosterone blocker/thiazide diuretic; however they must have initiated treatment more than 3 months prior to screening to ensure stable therapy.

• Evidence or history of clinically significant hematological, renal, endocrine, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular (including uncontrolled hypertension), hepatic, neurologic, or allergic disease (including drug allergies, but excluding untreated, asymptomatic, seasonal allergies at time of dosing).

• Current or prior treatment with anti-myostatin, exon skipping, nonsense mutation targeted therapies ever or more than 30 days of treatment with utrophin modifiers and treatment with utrophin modifiers within 30 days prior ot signing the informed consent and/or during study participation.
