Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The percentage of participants without disease relapse as determined by the Physician's global assessment of autoinflammatory disease activity, assessment of skin disease and inflammation markers. [ Time Frame: A minimum of 6 months and maximum of 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Disease relapse following complete response is defined as inflammation markers: C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and/or Serum Amyloid A (SAA) result > 30 mg/L AND Physician's Global Assessment of Autoinflammatory Disease Activity > minimal or Physician's Global Assessment >= minimal AND Skin Disease Assessment > minimal.

    Physician's Global Assessment of Autoinflammatory Disease Activity and Skin Disease Assessment (urticarial skin rash) are completed by the investigator using a 5 point rating scale: absent, minimal, mild, moderate and severe.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunogenicity of Canakinumab (ACZ885). Number of participants with anti-canakinumab antibodies [ Time Frame: minimum of 6 months and maximum of 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Immunogenicity assessment included determination of anti-canakinumab (ACZ885) antibodies in serum samples using BIAcore system, with detection based on surface plasmon resonance technique.

  • Change from baseline in C--Reactive Protein (CRP) and Serum Amyloid A (SAA) concentrations [ Time Frame: Week 80, 104, 128 and 152 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The CRP and SAA were used as inflammatory markers. The target level concentrations for CRP and SAA was ≤15 mg/L and ≤10 mg/L, respectively. Negative change in concentration of inflammatory markers indicated improvement.

  • Frequency counts of physician's global assessment of autoinflammatory disease and skin disease, by visit [ Time Frame: minimum of 6 months and maximum of 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Participants were assessed based by physician on Physician's Global Assessment measured on a 5--point scale for auto inflammatory disease activity as: 0 = None/absent; 1 = Minimal; 2 = Mild; 3 = Moderate; 4 = Severe

Enrollment: 17
Study Start Date: January 2012
Study Completion Date: October 2015
Primary Completion Date: October 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: canakinumab
Patients will receive a standard dose at an equivalent of 2 mg/kg s.c. of canakinumab (ACZ885) every 8 weeks. Possible dose and/or dosing regimen adjustments that can be administered include: 4 mg/kg s.c. (every 4 to 8 weeks) 6 mg/kg s.c. (every 4 to 8 weeks) 8 mg/kg s.c. (every 4 to 8 weeks)
Biological: ACZ885
Other Name: Canakinumab


Ages Eligible for Study:   1 Year to 4 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria:

  1. Patients who completed the core CACZ885D2307 study (a patient is defined as having completed the core study if they completed the study up to and including the EOS visit with no major protocol deviations in the core).
  2. Male and female patients that are ≥ 1 year of age at the time of the roll-over visit.
  3. Parent or legal guardian written informed consent must be obtained before any assessment in the extension CACZ885D2307E1 study is performed.

Exclusion criteria:

  1. Patients for who continued treatment in the CACZ885D2307E1 extension study is not considered appropriate by the treating physician.
  2. Patients who discontinued from the core CACZ885D2307 study

Other protocol-defined inclusion/exclusion criteria may apply.
