Further study details as provided by GlaxoSmithKline:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the efficacy of subcutaneous 6 mg/kg GSK2402968 versus placebo; specifically to have 90% power to detect a difference in 6MWD between GSK2402968 and placebo of 30 meters, assuming a common standard deviation of 55meters [ Time Frame: one year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety and tolerability of subcutaneous 6 mg/kg GSK2402968 with respect to AEs, ECG results, vital signs and laboratory tests [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • Plasma concentration of subcutaneous 6 mg/kg GSK2402968 calculated at each time point for each subject (sample size (n), mean, standard deviation (SD), percentage of coefficient of variation (%CV), geometric mean, median, minimum, and maximum [ Time Frame: one year ]
  • To evaluate the difference on quality of life of between GSK2402968 and placebo using PedsQOL, CGI-I and HUI [ Time Frame: one year ]

Enrollment: 186

Ages Eligible for Study:   5 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Ambulant subjects with Duchenne muscular dystrophy resulting from a mutation/deletion within the DMD gene, confirmed by a state-of-the-art DNA diagnostic technique covering all DMD gene exons, including but not limited to MLPA (Multiplex Ligation-dependent Probe Amplification), CGH (Comparative Genomic Hybridisation), SCAIP (Single Condition Amplification/Internal Primer) or H-RMCA (High-Resolution Melting Curve Analysis), and correctable by GSK2402968-induced DMD exon 51 skipping.
  • Males, aged at least 5 years, and with life expectancy of at least 1 year
  • Able to complete 6MWD test with minimal distance of at least 75m at each predrug visit. In addition, results of 6MWD must be within 20% of each other at each pre-drug visit
  • Receiving glucocorticoids for a minimum of 6 months immediately prior to screening, with no significant change in total daily dosage or dosing regimen for a minimum of 3 months immediately prior to screening and a reasonable expectation that total daily dosage and dosing regimen will not change significantly for the duration of the study
  • QTc <450msec (based on single or average QTc value of triplicate ECGs obtained over a brief recording period), or <480 msec for subjects with Bundle Branch Block. Note: QTc may be either QTcB or QTcF, and machine read or manual overread.
  • Subjects, where appropriate, must be willing to use adequate contraception (condoms or abstinence) for the duration of the study and for at least 5 months after the last dose of study drug.
  • Willing and able to comply with all protocol requirements and procedures,
  • Able to give informed assent and/or consent in writing signed by the subject and/or parent(s)/legal guardian (according to local regulations).
  • French subjects: In France, a subject will be eligible for inclusion in this study only if either affiliated to or a beneficiary of a social security category.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any additional missing exon for DMD that cannot be treated with GSK2402968
  • Current or history of liver or renal disease or impairment
  • Acute illness within 4 weeks of the first anticipated administration of study medication which may interfere with study assessments
  • Use of anticoagulants, antithrombotics or antiplatelet agents, previous treatment with investigational drugs, within 6 months of the first administration of study medication; and idebenone or other forms of Coenzyme Q10 within 1 month of the first administration of study medication.
  • Current or anticipated participation in any investigational clinical studies
  • Positive hepatitis B surface antigen, hepatitis C antibody test (if verified via RIBA or PCA testing), or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) test at screening,
  • Symptomatic cardiomyopathy. If subject has a left ventricular ejection fraction <45% at Screening, the investigator should discuss inclusion of subject in the study with the medical monitor,
  • Children in Care. The definition of a Child in Care is a child who has been placed under the control or protection of an agency, organisation, institution or entity by the courts, the government or a government body, acting in accordance with powers conferred on them by law or regulation. The definition of a child in care can include a child cared for by foster parents or living in a care home or institution, provided that the arrangement falls within the definition above. The definition of a child in care does not include a child who is adopted or has an appointed legal guardian.
