Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of Central Venous Catheter (CVC) Function Following a Single Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 120 minutes after first dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following a Single Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 15 minutes after first dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following a Single Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 30 minutes after first dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following a Second Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 15 minutes after second dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following a Second Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 30 minutes after second dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following a Second Administration of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: 120 minutes after second dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates of CVC Function Following Administration of One or Two Doses of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: Up to 120 minutes post-treatment (Dose 1 or Dose 2) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.

  • Percentage of Patients Who Had Cumulative Restoration Rates Restoration Rates of CVC Function at Any Time During the Study and Who Maintained Catheter Patency the Next Time the Catheter Was Assessed, up to 7 Days Following the Last Dose of Tenecteplase [ Time Frame: Up to 7 days post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Restoration of CVC function was defined as the successful withdrawal of at least 3 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 5 mL of normal saline in patients weighing ≥ 10 kg, and withdrawal of at least 1 mL of blood or fluid and infusion of 3 mL of normal saline in patients weighing < 10 kg.


Enrollment: 251
Study Start Date: December 2006
Primary Completion Date: June 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tenecteplase Drug: tenecteplase

2 mL of reconstituted lyophilized tenecteplase instilled into lumen of dysfunctional CVC.

Patients weighing ≥ 30 kg received 2-mL instillations of tenecteplase (i.e., 2 mg of tenecteplase). Patients weighing < 30 kg received instillations of tenecteplase equal to 110% of the internal lumen volume of the dysfunctional CVC. This dose was rounded to the nearest 0.1 mL and should not have exceeded 2 mL (2 mg).
