Evaluation of M118 in Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (EMINENCE) (EMINENCE)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Momenta Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Identifier:
First received: October 11, 2007
Last updated: April 30, 2013
Last verified: April 2013

The primary objective is to evaluate the safety and feasibility of using M118 as an anticoagulant in the target population of subjects with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).

The secondary objectives are to evaluate the effect of M118 on procedural indices including procedure success, abrupt closure, post-procedure TIMI flow, and catheter thrombus.

Substudy Primary Objective The primary objective of the substudy is to characterize the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of M118 among subjects with stable coronary artery disease undergoing elective PCI.

Condition Intervention Phase
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) Drug: M118 Drug: Unfractionated Heparin Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: A Randomized, Multi-center, Open-label, Parallel Group Feasibility Study to Determine the Safety and Efficacy of the Rationally Engineered Heparin M118 vs. Unfractionated Heparin (UFH) in Subjects With Stable Coronary Artery Disease Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) And A Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic and Heparin Antibody Substudy

Enrollment: 503
Study Start Date: September 2007
Study Completion Date: May 2009
Primary Completion Date: April 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1 Drug: Unfractionated Heparin
Please see other invention description
Experimental: 2 Drug: M118
75 IU/KG of M118, 100 IU/kg of M118 and 70 U/kg of unfractionated heparin given IV (in the vein) prior to Percutaneous Coronary Intervention. If procedure lasts longer than 30 minutes a 1/2 rebolus of the original therapy will be given.
