Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Microsomal Triglyceride Protein (MTP) Inhibitor
A Phase II Open Label, Dose-Escalation Study to Determine the Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy of Microsomal Triglyceride Transfer Protein (MTP) Inhibitor BMS-201038 in Patients With Homozygous Familial Hypercholeterolemia

The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of 4 doses of lomitapide (AEGR-733; BMS-201038) given as an initial low dose and then escalated through an additional 3 dose levels over a 16-week period.

The secondary objectives of this study included the evaluation of the pharmacodynamics of lomitapide based on:

  • Percent change in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides, and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) concentrations at the end of each 4-week dosing period compared to the Baseline value of each parameter at the end of the previous dose phase(s).
  • Changes in other plasma lipoproteins: apolipoproteins (apo B, apo AI, apo AII, apo CIII, apo E) and lipoprotein a [Lp(a)].

This is a single center, open-label, Phase 2 clinical trial designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacodynamics of lomitapide in the treatment of patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia (HoFH).

Patients are required to stop all lipid-lowering therapies, including apheresis, within 4 weeks prior to the Baseline visit and throughout the study. Patients are placed on a rigorous low-fat diet (<10% of energy from total dietary fat) at the Screening assessment; dietary counseling by a registered dietitian will be initiated at Screening and will continue at each subsequent study visit.

Patients initially receive 0.03 mg/kg of lomitapide orally every day for 4 weeks. Intra-patient dose escalation to 0.1 mg/kg, 0.3 mg/kg/day and 1.0 mg/kg/day occur every 4 weeks if specific protocol-defined stopping rules related to Grade 3 or 4 toxicities or serious adverse events (SAEs) do not apply.

The study includes 15 study visits over 22 weeks: a Screening visit (Visit 1) conducted within 2 weeks prior to dosing, a Baseline visit (Visit 2) conducted on Day 1 prior to the first dose, 12 visits conducted during the treatment period (Visits 3 through 14), and a Follow-up visit (Visit 15) conducted approximately 4 weeks after the last dose of lomitapide.

Screening and Baseline procedures include medical and medication history, physical examination, vital signs, 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), pulmonary function tests (PFTs), safety laboratory tests, fat soluble vitamin levels and a fatty acid profile. Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMRS) of the liver will be conducted at Baseline, at the end of each dosing period, and at the follow up visit to assess hepatic fat content. Baseline efficacy assessment includes a fasting lipid profile (TC, LDL-C [directly measured], VLDL-C, high density lipoprotein-cholesterol [HDL-C], triglycerides, and apolipoproteins [apo B, apo AI, apo AII, apo CIII, apo E] and Lp(a)).

Safety and lipid profile assessments are repeated during the treatment period and at the Follow-up visit conducted 28 days after the last dose of lomitapide.
