Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Measure the ability to administer twice daily oral quercetin therapy in patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA). [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) ]
  • Measure safety of oral quercetin therapy in patients with FA [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) ]
  • To measure pharmacokinetics (PK) of oral quercetin therapy in patients with FA [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To measure the impact of quercetin therapy on reduction of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) and 1 year ]
  • Number of participants with improved hematopoiesis. [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) and 1 year ]
  • Measure the preservation of hematopoietic stem cell reserve in patients with FA [ Time Frame: 4 months (16 weeks) and 1 year ]
  • To measure the impact of quercetin therapy on changes in insulin sensitivity/glucose tolerance. [ Time Frame: 4 month (16 weeks) and 1 year ]

Estimated Enrollment: 32
Study Start Date: July 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2022
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Quercetin - Dietary Supplement

Quercetin will be given orally on a twice a day schedule starting with weight adjusted dose for a maximum total daily dose of 1500 mg/day, for 4 months (16 weeks). Pharmacokinetics (PK) data will be analyzed after each cohort of 3 patients and will be used to optimize the dosing schedule (if required) for subsequent patients.

An expansion cohort has been added to the study protocol. Up to 20 patients may be enrolled. The dose utilized will be the same as the max weight adjusted dose that showed biological activity in our last cohort of patients (subjects #10-12 from above).

Detailed Description:

Current therapies for children with Fanconi anemia (FA) and bone marrow failure, i.e. androgens or bone marrow transplantation, are associated with significant morbidity and mortality.

This is a pilot study aiming to assess feasibility, toxicity and pharmacokinetics of oral Quercetin therapy in patients with FA. This is a first step towards a clinical study of the efficacy of Quercetin therapy in delaying progression of BMF in FA.

Additional correlative studies will include assessment of impact of Quercetin on reduction of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS), maintenance or improvement of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) reserve, improvement of hematopoiesis (i.e. peripheral counts) and insulin sensitivity/glucose tolerance.

This study is an open-label single arm study.

Funding Source - FDA OOPD

Accrual closed for the main study. Expansion cohort added to observe additional patients at the desired dose.

Expansion Cohort:

The second and third cohort of participants completed the study treatment as expected, tolerating Quercetin well without any DLT. Based on the PK and ROS analyses, the dose was increased for the fourth cohort (subjects #10-12). To observe additional patients at the desired dose, an expansion cohort is being added. Up to 20 patients will be enrolled in the expansion cohort. The purpose of the expansion cohort is to assess the effects of quercetin supplement at the desired dose on clinical and biological endpoints.

Patients in the expansion cohort will receive quercetin treatment for the first 26 weeks. Patients who continue quercetin supplement clinically after 26 weeks, but discontinue quercetin before 1 year will be followed through the 1 year visit. Patients who discontinue quercetin supplement any time after the 1 year visit will be followed through the 2 year visit.
