Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and efficacy of AKR-501 (avatrombopag) administered in participants with chronic Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP) who were enrolled into and completed 28 days of study treatment in Protocol 501-CL-003 (NCT00441090).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura Drug: Blinded (placebo) Drug: Open Label (Avatrombopag tablets) Drug: Blinded (Avatrombopoag tablets) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Participants eligible to enroll into this rollover protocol will begin study treatment within 2-5 days of their Day 28 study termination visit in Protocol 501-CL-003 (NCT00441090). Participants who met the primary efficacy response criterion in Protocol 501-CL-003 will continue receiving the same study treatment to which they were assigned in the previous protocol in a double-blinded manner, these being one of the following 5 treatments:

  • avatrombopag 2.5 mg daily
  • avatrombopag 5 mg daily
  • avatrombopag 10 mg daily
  • avatrombopag 20 mg daily
  • placebo

Participants who did not meet the primary efficacy response criterion in Protocol 501-CL-003 who otherwise meet the eligibility criteria for this rollover protocol will be offered open label avatrombopag 10 mg daily.

This is a parallel group, rollover study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Month 6 while receiving treatment and at Month 7 after discontinuation of treatment. ]
    A TEAE was defined as 1) the AE started on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 30 days after the last dose of study drug, or 2) the AE started before the first dose of study drug but worsened in severity on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 3 days after the last dose of study drug. For participants having a tapering period of study drug, the last dose day is the last day of study drug during the tapering period. Related AEs included those whose relationship was categorized as possible or probably by the investigator. Dose interruption includes dose decreased, dose previously stopped, permanently stopped, or temporarily stopped. The safety population was divided into three subgroups based on the mean daily dose of active study drug taken; lower 1/3 (less than 8.85 mg avatrombopag), middle 1/3 (greater than or equal to 8.85 mg but less than 13.5 mg avatrombopag), and upper 1/3 (greater than or equal to 13.5 mg avatrombopag).

  2. Incidence of Severe (Grade 3 or 4) TEAEs [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Month 6 while receiving treatment and at Month 7 after discontinuation of treatment. ]
    A TEAE was defined as 1) the AE started on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 30 days after the last dose of drug, or 2) the AE started before the first dose of study drug but worsened in severity on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 3 days after the last dose of study drug. For participants having a tapering period of study drug, the last dose day is the last day of study drug during the tapering period. The safety population was divided into three subgroups based on the mean daily dose of active study drug taken; lower 1/3 (less than 8.85 mg avatrombopag), middle 1/3 (greater than or equal to 8.85 mg but less than 13.5 mg avatrombopag), and upper 1/3 (greater than or equal to 13.5 mg avatrombopag).

  3. Incidence of Drug-Related TEAEs [ Time Frame: Day 1 through Month 6 while receiving treatment and at Month 7 after discontinuation of treatment. ]
    Drug-related TEAEs included those whose relationship was categorized as possible or probably by the investigator. A TEAE was defined as 1) the AE started on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 30 days after the last dose of drug, or 2) the AE started before the first dose of study drug but worsened in severity on or after the date of first dose of study drug up to and including 3 days after the last dose of study drug. For participants having a tapering period of study drug, the last dose day is the last day of study drug during the tapering period. The safety population was divided into three subgroups based on the mean daily dose of active study drug taken; lower 1/3 (less than 8.85 mg avatrombopag), middle 1/3 (greater than or equal to 8.85 mg but less than 13.5 mg avatrombopag), and upper 1/3 (greater than or equal to 13.5 mg avatrombopag).


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Median Platelet Counts at Selected Analysis Timepoints [ Time Frame: Day 1, Weeks 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, and Follow-up Weeks (after last dose of study drug in this study) 1, 2, 3, 4 ]
    Platelet count (PC) was measured from blood draws. Based on avatrombopag response in study 501-CL-003, participants were divided into two subgroups; 1) "Responders", participants who met the primary efficacy response; pretreatment PC was less than 30,000/mm^3 and increased to greater than or equal to 50,000/mm^3 after treatment with avatrombopag, and for participants on steroids, pretreatment PC was greater than or equal to 30,000/mm3 but less than 50,000/mm^3 and increased to a PC greater than or equal to 20,000/mm^3 above their pretreatment values and 2) "Nonresponders", participants who did not meet the primary efficacy response and those who were in the placebo arm. Open-label dose escalation of avatrombopag, as well as reductions in ITP-directed concomitant therapy (e.g. steroids) was allowed for all participants. During the periods of avatrombopag dose escalation and/or ITP-directed concomitant medication reduction, platelet sampling was done weekly.
