This is a Phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging, parallel-group study to evaluate the efficacy, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of S-888711 in the treatment of subjects with immune thrombocytopenia. Eligible subjects will be randomized into one of four treatment groups to receive S-888711 0.5 mg, 0.75 mg, or 1.0 mg or placebo.

Condition Intervention Phase
Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)
Drug: placebo to S-888711
Drug: S-888711
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group Study to Investigate the Efficacy and Safety of S-888711 Tablets Administered Once-daily for 42 Days to Adult Subjects With Relapsed Persistent or Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia With or Without Prior Splenectomy

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary efficacy endpoint is the proportion of responder subjects in each treatment group [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
    The responders were subjects with 1) achieved a platelet count of ≥ 50, 000/µL after 6 weeks of dosing 2) prematurely withdrawn due to a platelet count > 400,000/ µL prior to Day 42

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety of S-888711 [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
  • Pharmacokinetics (PK) profile of S-888711 using sparse PK sampling [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
  • PK profile of S-888711 using serial PK sampling in a selected subset of subjects [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
  • PK/PD relationship of S-888711 with respect to platelet count [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
  • Impact of S-888711 on the incidence and severity of bleeding [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]
  • Pharmacodynamic (PD) effect of S-888711 on platelet count and markers of platelet function, such as endogeneous thrombopoietin (TPO) [ Time Frame: 6-weeks ]

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: January 2010
Primary Completion Date: November 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
