Renal Impairment Drug: NOX-E36 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Pharmacokinetics

Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: June 2011
Study Completion Date: October 2012
Primary Completion Date: October 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: NOX-E36
All subjects included in this study will receive the same dose of NOX E36.
Drug: NOX-E36
All subjects included in this study will receive the same dose of NOX E36. In previous clinical trials, single intravenous doses of NOX E36 up to 2 mg/kg body weight and single subcutaneous doses of up to 0.5 mg/kg body weight appeared to be safe and well tolerated in healthy volunteers. Pharmacokinetic analyses have shown dose linearity

Detailed Description:

Current diabetes therapy does not stop progression of the disease and the development of diabetes mellitus (DM)-associated complications. A major concern in DM-patients is renal impairment due to nephropathy leading to a reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR). It has been established that chronic (sub)clinical inflammation is crucial for the onset and progression of DM.

CCL2, also known as Monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP 1) is a chemokine from the cysteine-cysteine family, secreted by leukocytes or tissue cells. CCL2 promotes monocyte emigration from the bone marrow, activates monocytes and macrophages and directs their migration to sites of inflammation. Recent animal studies and clinical trials indicate a critical involvement of CCL2 in DM and diabetic nephropathy, suggesting that CCL2 may be a potential target for therapeutic intervention in DM. Finally, protein overload and oxidative challenge of the diseased kidney was suggested to stimulate CCL2 expression in renal tubuli, thereby accelerating the progression of diabetic nephropathy.

As NOX E36 is designed to specifically target human MCP-1/CCL2. This study is performed to evaluate the role of renal impairment for adequate dosing recommendations in the planned target population.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Women of childbearing potential
  2. Patients who have received kidney transplantation.
  3. Patients receiving hemodialysis to control their disease.
  4. Any clinically significant abnormality other than related to the renal impairment following the investigator's review of the physical examination, ECG and clinical laboratory tests at screening.
  5. Not able to communicate meaningfully with the investigator and staff.
