|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Polyradiculoneuropathy, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating||Drug: Immune Globulin IV (Human), 10% Caprylate/Chromatography Purified Drug: Albumin (Human) 25%, United States Pharmacopeia (USP)||Phase 3|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Actual Enrollment :||117 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)|
|Official Title:||Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of IGIV-Chromatography (IGIV-C), 10% Treatment in Subjects With Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy|
|Study Start Date :||April 2004|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||June 2006|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||June 2006|
Experimental: Group 1
Drug: Immune Globulin IV (Human), 10% Caprylate/Chromatography Purified
2 g/kg body weight ideally over 2-4 days . Thereafter, study drug infusion (IGIV-C) will be administered every 3 weeks at a dose of 1 g/kg bw, given over 1-2 days for a total of 7 additional infusions
|Placebo Comparator: Group 2||
Drug: Albumin (Human) 25%, United States Pharmacopeia (USP)
Albumin 25%, USP diluted with dextrose 5% to a final concentration of 0.1% as an intravenous infusion. Alternatively, it may be a bottled placebo of 0.1% Albumin (Human) in 0.2 M Glycine, 1.1 mm sodium caprylate, 0.25% sodium chloride. 2 g/kg body weight ideally over 2-4 days . Thereafter, infusion (placebo) will be administered every 3 weeks at a dose of 1 g/kg bw, given over 1-2 days for a total of 7 additional infusions
- Comparison of the Responder Rates Between Two Treatment Groups in the Efficacy Period [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
The primary efficacy objective was the comparison of IGIV-C and Placebo group Responder rates. An Efficacy Period Responder was defined as a subject with ≥ 1 point improvement in the adjusted Inflammatory Neuropathy Case And Treatment (INCAT) score, with the improvement maintained through the end of Week 24 in the Efficacy Period.
Measurements are reported in INCAT scale of 0-5 in both lower and upper extremities, for a total score of 0 to 10.
INCAT scores for arm disability: 0 = no upper limb problems; 5 = inability to use either arm for any purposeful movement.
INCAT scores for leg disability: 0= walking not affected; 5 = restricted to wheelchair, unable to stand and walk a few steps with help
- Mean Change in the Amplitude (Millivolts) in the Most Severely Affected Motor Nerve During the Efficacy Period [ Time Frame: 6 months ]Mean changes in amplitude [mV] measured at most proximal site in the most severely affected motor nerve from baseline to endpoint during the Efficacy Period (Intent to treat population)
- Mean Change in Grip Strength During the Efficacy Period [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
- Time to Relapse for Subjects Who Were IGIV-C Responders or IGIV-C Rescue Successes, During the Randomized Withdrawal Period [ Time Frame: 6 months ]

|Ages Eligible for Study:||18 Years and older (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Documented diagnosis of CIDP must be made by a neurologist specializing/experienced in neuromuscular diseases based on: a) Progressive or relapsing motor and sensory dysfunction of more than one limb resulting from neuropathy over the 2 months prior to the date informed consent is obtained, and b) Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) less than 50 white cells/µl since CIDP diagnosis (CSF testing studies are NOT mandatory)
- Fulfillment of INCAT neurophysiological criteria for focal demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy
- Overall INCAT score between 2-9 and significant disability in upper or lower limb function in at least 2 limbs. (An INCAT score of 2 must be exclusively from leg disability to qualify.)
- Treatment with IGIV or plasma within 3 months prior to entry
- Steroids (Prednisolone or equivalent) > 10 mg/day or equivalent (i.e., > 20 mg every 2 days) during the last 3 months prior to entry
- Treatment with immunomodulatory/immunosuppressive agents (azathioprin, tacrolimus,cyclosporin, Muromonab-CD3 (OKT3), any interferon), previous lymphoid irradiation or prior treatment with cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, mitoxantrone or any other immunosuppressant drug within the past 6 months prior to entry
- Concomitant use of supplements containing any amount of fish oil within 30 days prior to entry
- Respiratory impairment requiring mechanical ventilation
- Myelopathy or evidence of central demyelination or persisting neurological deficits from stroke, central nervous system (CNS) trauma or peripheral neuropathies of other cause which include diabetes mellitus (defined as a history of type 1 or type 2 diabetes with fasting plasma glucose ≥ 7.0 mmol/L), uremic, toxic and familial neuropathies
- Pure motor syndrome fulfilling criteria for multifocal motor neuropathy with conduction block. Lower motor neuron disorder with motor weakness in an upper limb, without sensory deficit and with proximal conduction block (50% decrease in amplitude/area with proximal distal stimulation ) in motor nerves and normal sensory nerve conduction studies.
- Clinical or known evidence of associated systemic diseases that might cause neuropathy, including but not limited to connective tissue disease, HIV infection, hepatitis, Lyme disease, cancer (with the exception of benign skin cancer), Castleman's disease and systemic lupus erythematosus, diabetes mellitus (defined as a history of type 1 or type 2 diabetes with fasting plasma glucose ≥ 7.0 mmol/L), a malignant plasma cell dysplasia, immunoglobulin M (IgM) paraproteinemia, and amiodarone therapy.
