Time to Beginning of Substantial Relief of the Defining Symptom [ Time Frame: Within 4 hours after initial treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Randomized subjects assessed their symptoms every 15 minutes up to 4 hours after the initial dose of blinded study drug or until substantial relief of the defining symptom was achieved. Substantial relief was defined as 3 consecutive assessments of improvement of the defining symptom. Beginning of substantial relief was considered the first of the 3 consecutive assessments.
  • The primary endpoint of Part A will be the time to the beginning of unequivocal relief of the defining symptom following initial treatment (Time 0).
  • Part A
  • Part B
  • The primary endpoint for Part B will be the number of attacks of angioedema during each treatment phase, using each subject as his/her own control.

  • Number of Subjects With Beginning of Substantial Relief of the Defining Symptom [ Time Frame: Within 4 hours after initial treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Randomized subjects assessed their symptoms every 15 minutes up to 4 hours after the initial dose of blinded study drug or until substantial relief of the defining symptom was achieved. Substantial relief was defined as 3 consecutive assessments of improvement of the defining symptom. Beginning of substantial relief was considered the first of the 3 consecutive assessments.
  • Time to Complete Resolution of the HAE Attack [ Time Frame: 72 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Randomized subjects were contacted 72-96 hours (3-4 days) after discharge from the study site to determine when complete resolution of the HAE attack occurred.
  • Antigenic C1 Inhibitor (C1INH) Serum Levels [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours post-infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in antigenic C1INH serum levels from pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours after the initial dose of blinded study drug.
  • Functional C1INH Serum Levels [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours post-infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Percent change in functional C1INH serum levels from pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours after the initial dose of blinded study drug.

    Functional C1INH serum levels are expressed as a percent of total detectable C1INH (ie, functional C1INH/total detectable C1INH).

  • Complement C4 Serum Levels [ Time Frame: Pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours post-infusion ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Change in complement C4 serum levels from pre-infusion to 1-, 2-, 4-, and 12 hours after the initial dose of blinded study drug.
  • Part A
  • The presence or absence of unequivocal beginning of relief of the defining symptom within 4 hours following treatment, the time to complete resolution of the attack, and the ability of C1INH-nf to raise C1INH and C4 levels.
  • Part B
  • The number of subjects dropping out at each stage, quality of life, average severity of attacks, the average duration of attacks, number of open label C1INH-nf infusions, and C1INH and C4 levels.

C1 Esterase Inhibitor (C1INH-nf) for the Treatment of Acute Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) Attacks
LEVP2005-1/Part A: A Double-blind, Placebo-Controlled, Clinical Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of Purified C1 Esterase Inhibitor (Human) for the Treatment of HAE in Acute Attacks

The study objective was to determine the safety and efficacy of C1INH-nf for the treatment of acute HAE attacks.

Randomized subjects treated for a qualifying attack were eligible to receive rescue dosing with 1,000 U of C1INH-nf if they did not achieve beginning of substantial relief of the defining symptom within 4 hours after initial treatment with blinded study drug, or if at any time the attack progressed to include airway compromise. A second 1,000 U rescue dose was permitted 60 minutes after the initial rescue dose, if necessary.

The study design also allowed for administration of open-label C1INH-nf for laryngeal angioedema attacks, which were non-randomizable events due to the presence of or potential for airway compromise (immediate 1,000 U dose of C1INH-nf, repeated after 60 minutes, if necessary). In addition, subjects were eligible to receive open-label C1INH-nf (1,000 U single dose) prior to emergency surgical (non-cosmetic) procedures.

A total of 83 subjects were enrolled in the study. Seventy-one (71) subjects experienced qualifying attacks and were randomized to blinded study drug (36 C1INH-nf, 35 placebo); only the 71 randomized subjects were analyzed for efficacy. An additional 12 subjects were never randomized but received open-label C1INH-nf for treatment of laryngeal angioedema and/or prior to emergency surgical procedures. Of the 35 subjects randomized to placebo, 23 also received C1INH-nf (eg, rescue, open-label). In total, 83 subjects received at least 1 dose of study drug and were analyzed for safety; 71 subjects were exposed to C1INH-nf (59 randomized, 12 open-label only) and 12 subjects were exposed only to placebo.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Hereditary Angioedema
  • Biological: C1 esterase inhibitor [human] (C1INH-nf)
  • Drug: Placebo (saline)
  • Experimental: C1INH-nf
    1,000 Units (U) of C1INH-nf administered intravenously (IV). If there was no response to treatment 60 minutes after the first dose, a second 1,000 U dose could be administered.
    Intervention: Biological: C1 esterase inhibitor [human] (C1INH-nf)
  • Placebo Comparator: Placebo
    Matching placebo (saline) administered IV. If there was no response to treatment 60 minutes after the first dose, a second placebo (saline) dose could be administered.
    Intervention: Drug: Placebo (saline)
