An Open Label Study of Romiplostim in Adult Thrombocytopenic Subjects With ITP

This study has been completed.

Amgen Identifier:
First received: July 26, 2007
Last updated: February 7, 2017
Last verified: February 2017
This protocol will provide open label romiplostim to adult thrombocytopenic subjects. Romiplostim will be administered by subcutaneous injection once per week. Dose adjustment will be based on platelet counts, and will be allowed throughout the duration of the study. Rescue therapies are allowed at any time during the study. Reductions in concurrent ITP therapies may occur at any time when platelet counts are > 50,000.

Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Thrombocytopenia Thrombocytopenic Purpura Biological: Romiplostim Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open Label Study of Romiplostim in Adult Thrombocytopenic Subjects With Immune (Idiopathic) Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)

Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Adverse Events [ Time Frame: Duration of Treatment plus 30 days or End of Study (whichever is later). Approximately 205 weeks. ]
    One or more occurences of one or more adverse events within the participant during the study. Participants with more than one event were only counted once

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Platelet Response (Definition 1) [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment (up to 201 weeks) ]
    Platelet response using definition1 . (a doubling of baseline platelet count and a platelet count of >=50 x 10^9/L

  • Platelet Response (Definition 2) [ Time Frame: Duration of treatment (up to 201 weeks) ]
    Platelet response using definition 2 (a platelet count increase of >=20 x 109/L from baseline)

Enrollment: 407
Study Start Date: February 2005
Study Completion Date: March 2011
Primary Completion Date: January 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Biological: Romiplostim
Romiplostim will be administered subcutaneously QW. Romiplostim will be manufactured and packaged and distributed using Amgen's clinical study investigational product distribution procedures. Romiplostim is presented as a lyophilized, white powder in 5.0 mL glass vials.
