Trial record 7 of 40 for:    "Mucopolysaccharidosis type II"

An Observational Study Evaluating Anti-Idursulfase Serum Antibody Response in Hunter Syndrome Patients

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Shire Identifier:
First received: April 16, 2009
Last updated: August 4, 2014
Last verified: July 2014
The objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of anti-idursulfase antibodies on idursulfase safety (measured by infusion related adverse events) between patients who develop anti-idursulfase antibodies and patients who do not after long-term idursulfase enzyme replacement therapy (ERT).

Condition Intervention
Hunter Syndrome
Biological: Idursulfase

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: A Multi-Center Observational Study Evaluating Anti-Idursulfase Serum Antibody Response in Hunter Syndrome Patients Enrolled in the Hunter Outcome Survey (HOS) Receiving Idursulfase Enzyme Replacement Therapy

Further study details as provided by Shire:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Infusion-Related Adverse Event (IRAE) Rates Between IgG Anti-idursulfase Antibody Positive (Ab+) and Anti-idursulfase IgG Antibody Negative (Ab-) Patients [ Time Frame: Baseline to 109 Weeks ]
    The primary analysis of how presence of antibodies affected IRAE rates was performed based on a negative binomial regression model. This was done to account for potentially differential follow-up time between antibody groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline in uGAG Levels to 109 Weeks [ Time Frame: Baseline to 109 Weeks ]
    Urine GAG

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Blood and urine

Enrollment: 26
Study Start Date: October 2008
Study Completion Date: February 2013
Primary Completion Date: February 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Idursulfase 0.5 mg/kg Weekly
Biological: Idursulfase
Patients received idursulfase as prescribed by their physician following locally approved prescribing information. Patients will not be provided idursulfase by Shire Human Genetic Therapies, Inc. or the HOS.
Other Name: Elaprase

Detailed Description:
This study is being conducted to satisfy post-marketing commitments to monitor anti-idursulfase antibody development in Hunter syndrome patients after long-term idursulfase enzyme replacement therapy. The study will be conducted as a sub-study within the Hunter Outcome Survey (HOS). Hunter syndrome patients in the HOS who have previously received idursulfase as well as treatment-naive patients who will begin idursulfase treatment within 30 days of study enrollment will be included.

Ages Eligible for Study:   5 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with Hunter syndrome

Inclusion Criteria:

Patients must meet all of the following criteria to be considered eligible for enrollment:

  • The patient is male and enrolled in the HOS (i.e., meets the entry criteria of a documented diagnosis of Hunter syndrome)
  • The patient is ≥ 5 years-old
  • The patient is on idursulfase treatment or scheduled to begin idursulfase treatment within 30 days of study enrollment
  • The patient, patient's parent(s), or patient's legally authorized guardian must have voluntarily signed an Institutional Review Board (IRB)/Independent Ethics Committee (IEC)-approved informed consent form after all relevant aspects of the study have been explained and discussed with the patient, patient's parent(s), or patient's legally authorized guardian.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients who meet any of the following criteria are not eligible for this study:

  • The patient has received biologic/ERT products other than idursulfase, or other investigational product(s) for any reason within 30 days prior to study entry.
  • The patient has a life expectancy of < 2 years
  • The patient is unable to comply with the protocol, e.g., has a clinically relevant medical condition making implementation of the protocol difficult; has an uncooperative attitude; is unable to return for safety evaluations; or is otherwise unlikely to complete the study, as determined by the Investigator.
