Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The percentage of patients with a positive overall satisfactory relief of symptoms on the Likert scale [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of patients with improvement in symptoms (diarrhoea and/or flushes) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in the Quality of Life (QoL) assessment [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Change in 5 hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5 HIAA) and chromogranin A [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Adverse events, including any findings from an examination of the injection site(s). [ Time Frame: At each visit ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Minimum concentration (Cmin) BIM 23A760 plasma levels [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Concentration at 2 hours postdose (C2 hours) BIM 23A760 plasma levels [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Clinical safety criteria: physical examination, vital signs, weight, 12 lead electrocardiogram (ECG), gallbladder ultrasonography and echocardiography, 24hr blood pressure record [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Clinical laboratory safety tests [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: BIM 23A760
This dose adaptive study is planned to treat up to 20 patients in each starting dose cohort, with a maximum of three starting dose cohorts. The doses planned to be assessed are 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 mg, however, the maximum starting dose will be 4 mg. The starting dose of the first cohort will be 1 mg; the first cohort will include at least five patients. After the first fifteen patients have been treated for 4 weeks, the results will be reviewed by a Data Review Committee. An extension phase (Part B) is planned for those subjects completing the initial study and fulfilling specific eligibility criteria (symptoms control, willingness to participate, safety and tolerability).
Drug: BIM 23A760
BIM 23A760 is a solution at a concentration of 5 mg/mL ready for subcutaneous injection. BIM 23A760 dose of 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 mg can be given to the patient according to a dose escalation and titration process. Patients will receive 24 weekly injections of BIM 23A760 during the treatment period. Patients eligible to continue the extension phase will be administered BIM 23A760 for further 52 weekly injections.
