Safety and Efficacy Study of LUM001 in the Treatment of Cholestatic Liver Disease in Patients With Alagille Syndrome (IMAGO)

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Shire Identifier:
First received: July 16, 2013
Last updated: November 2, 2015
Last verified: June 2015
The study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of LUM001. Efficacy will be assessed by evaluating the effect of LUM001 versus placebo on the biochemical markers and pruritus associated with Alagille Syndrome.

Condition Intervention Phase
Alagille Syndrome Drug: LUM001 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of LUM001, an Apical Sodium-dependent Bile Acid Transporter Inhibitor (ASBTi), in the Treatment of Cholestatic Liver Disease in Paediatric Patients With Alagille Syndrome

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 13 (End of Treatment) in Fasting Serum Bile Acid Level [ Time Frame: Baseline to 13 weeks or end of treatment ]
    Participants were required to fast for at least 4 hours; only water was permitted prior to collection. A negative change from baseline indicates that the level of bile acid decreased.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change From Baseline to Week 13 (End of Treatment) in Liver Enzymes [ Time Frame: Baseline to 13 weeks or end of treatment ]
    Analysis of liver enzymes included alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alkaline phosphatase (ALP). A negative change from baseline indicates that the level of that enzyme decreased.

  • Change From Baseline to Week 13 (End of Treatment) in Pruritus as Measured by The Patient And Observer Itch Reported Outcome (ItchRO) Average Daily Scores [ Time Frame: Baseline to 13 weeks or end of treatment ]
    The ItchRO was administered as a twice daily electronic diary (eDiary). Children ≥9 years of age completed the patient ItchRO; those between the ages of 5 and 8 completed the patient ItchRO with the assistance of their caregiver. There was no patient report for subjects under the age of 5. ItchRO scores range from 0 to 4, with the higher score indicating increasing itch severity. ItchRO average daily scores were calculated as the sum of daily scores (ie, the maximum of morning and evening scores) divided by the number of days. The average daily score was calculated by using the 7 days pre-treatment for baseline, and the last 7 days of treatment for Week 13. A negative change from Baseline indicates that itch severity decreased.
