A Single-Dose, Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic (PK/PD), & Safety Study of BIIB017 in Participants With Renal Impairment & Healthy Volunteers

This study has been completed.

The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the pharmacokinetics (PK) of a single dose of PEGylated Interferon Beta-1a (BIIB017) administered subcutaneous in participants with renal impairment and in participants with normal renal function (healthy participants). A secondary objective of this study in this study population is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of a single dose of PEGylated Interferon Beta-1a administered subcutaneous.

Healthy Renal Insufficiency Drug: BIIB017(peginterferon beta-1a) Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Official Title: An Open-Label, Single-dose, Pharmacokinetic, Pharmacodynamic, and Safety Study of PEGylated Interferon Beta-1a (BIIB017) in Healthy Subjects and Subjects With Renal Impairment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Area under the time-concentration curve (AUC) for serum concentrations of peginterferon beta-1a [ Time Frame: Post-hemodialysis, pre-dose on Day 1, post dose at 6, 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 168, 240, 336, 408, 504, 576 and 672 hours ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: Day 1 up to Week 5 ]

Enrollment: 35
Study Start Date: May 2010
Study Completion Date: August 2011
Primary Completion Date: August 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: peginterferon beta-1a
Single dose of peginterferon beta-1a at either 63 or 125 mcg in renal impaired Participants and healthy volunteers
Drug: BIIB017(peginterferon beta-1a)
peginterferon beta-1a administered by a single subcutaneous (SC) injection using a pre-filled syringe on Day 1 at a dose of either 63 or 125 mcg depending on subpopulation assignment reflecting whether a healthy volunteer or level of renal impairment.

Detailed Description:
This study is an open-label, multicenter, non-randomized, serial-group study to estimate the effect of renal impairment on BIIB017 PK/PD. The study will be conducted at approximately 3 sites in the US and will enroll approximately 35 participants: 6 healthy volunteers (normal renal function), 9 with mild renal impairment, 6 with moderate renal impairment, 8 with severe renal impairment, and 6 participants with end stage renal disease who require hemodialysis 2 to 3 times a week.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 75 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects must have stable renal disease (i.e., no change in disease status within the last month) as determined by the Investigator with laboratory and clinical findings that support the diagnosis of renal impairment.
  • Must have body mass index (BMI) between 18 and 35 kg/m2 inclusive.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of any clinically unstable (in the past 6 months prior to screening) cardiac, endocrinologic, hematologic, hepatic, immunologic, metabolic, urologic, pulmonary, neurologic, dermatologic, and psychiatric, or other major disease as determined by the Investigator.
  • Any evidence of clinically significant findings on screening evaluations, which, in the opinion of the Investigator would pose a safety risk, or would interfere with appropriate interpretation of safety or PK data, or other unspecified reasons that, in the opinion of the Investigator or Biogen Idec, make the subject unsuitable for enrollment

NOTE: Other protocol defined Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria May Apply
