A Study in Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Eli Lilly and Company Identifier:
First received: September 3, 2010
Last updated: September 29, 2014
Last verified: September 2014
The purpose of this trial is to explore the effect of LY2127399 on those antibodies that are a barrier to kidney transplant. Transplantation is currently the definitive treatment for End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), providing prolonged survival and improved quality of life.

Condition Intervention Phase
Kidney Failure, Chronic
Drug: LY2127399
Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Official Title: An Exploratory/Proof of Concept Investigation of the Safety and Pharmacodynamics of LY2127399 in HLA-Presensitized Patients With End-Stage Renal Disease Awaiting Transplantation

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline through 76 weeks in Single Antigen Reactivity [ Time Frame: Baseline through 76 weeks ]
  • Change from baseline through 76 weeks in Panel Reactive Antibodies (PRA) [ Time Frame: Baseline through 76 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline through 76 weeks in serum immunoglobulin levels [ Time Frame: Baseline through 76 weeks ]
  • Change from baseline at week 1 and week 24 in B-cell populations in the tonsil [ Time Frame: Baseline, week 1, week 24 ]
  • Change from baseline through 76 weeks in relative percentages of B-cell populations in peripheral blood [ Time Frame: Baseline through 76 weeks ]
  • Change from baseline through 76 weeks in absolute counts of B-cell populations in peripheral blood [ Time Frame: Baseline through 76 weeks ]

Estimated Enrollment: 18
Study Start Date: April 2011
Study Completion Date: March 2014
Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: LY2127399 Drug: LY2127399
120mg administered subcutaneously every 4 weeks for 20 weeks. A loading dose of 240 mg will be given as the first dose of the study medication

Detailed Description:
In this study, LY2127399 will be tested as a potential treatment to reduce the blood proteins in some patients with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). These proteins are called alloantibodies and are made by the body to react with other proteins called HLA proteins. When a person has these antibodies, they are referred to as HLA-presensitized. Often the presence of these antibodies, measured by a test called the PRA (panel reactive antibody), can make a person ineligible to receive a transplant - or experience very long wait times on the kidney transplant waiting list. Therefore the need to reduce the antibodies is significant for the successful treatment of ESRD. This study will treat ESRD patients for 6 months with LY2127399 and measure PRA levels for a total of 18 months.
