Study of Chimeric Monoclonal Antibodies to Shiga Toxins 1 and 2
This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of cαStx1 and cαStx2 administered concomitantly in children presenting early signs of Shiga Toxin-Producing Bacterial (STPB) Infection.
Shiga Toxin Producing Bacterial Infection
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
|Official Title:||A Phase II Study of Chimeric Monoclonal Antibodies to Shiga Toxins 1 (cαStx1) and 2 (cαStx2) Administered Concomitantly to Children With Shiga Toxin-Producing Bacterial (STPB) Infection and Bloody Diarrhea (SHIGATEC Trial)|
- Safety and Tolerability: Evaluation of number and type of adverse events and serious adverse events between arms and dosage cohorts [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Evaluation of the safety and tolerability of two different intravenous dose levels of a combined cαStx1/cαStx2 preparation in separate groups of children presenting with Shiga Toxin-Producing Bacterial (STPB) infection.
- Efficacy: Comparison of clinical event rates (Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome, Bloody Diarrhea) and associated sequelae between arms and dosage cohorts in children presenting with Shiga Toxin-Producing Bacterial (STPB) infection. [ Time Frame: Up to 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
|Study Start Date:||November 2010|
|Study Completion Date:||February 2013|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
cαStx1/cαStx2 administered concomitantly at a dose of 1 mg/kg (low dose cohort) or 3 mg/kg (high dose cohort)per antibody over 1 hour + standard of care
|Placebo Comparator: Control||
Placebo administered over 1 hour + standard of care
Currently, there is no etiological treatment of STPB-induced HUS. Ideally, such treatment would be started in the early phase of the infection and would protect against both types of toxins and all of their variants. The chimeric anti-Shiga toxins 1 (cαStx1) and 2 (cαStx2) antibodies are intended to be administered as a single infusion and provide simultaneous protection against the two Shiga toxins (Stx1 and Stx2) by decreasing the incidence and severity of Shiga toxin-mediated clinical events including bloody diarrhea/hemorrhagic colitis and Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) and associated sequelae.
