Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Pfizer
  Purpose
This Phase 3 study will investigate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of an oral daily dose of 20 mg or 80 mg tafamidis meglumine capsules compared to placebo in subjects with either transthyretin genetic variants or wild-type transthyretin resulting in amyloid cardiomyopathy.

Condition Intervention Phase
Transthyretin (TTR) Amyloid Cardiomyopathy Drug: Tafamidis Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Multicenter, International, Phase 3, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Randomized Study To Evaluate The Efficacy, Safety, And Tolerability Of Daily Oral Dosing Of Tafamidis Meglumine (Pf-06291826) 20 Mg Or 80 Mg In Comparison To Placebo In Subjects Diagnosed With Transthyretin Cardiomyopathy (ttr-cm)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • All-cause mortality and frequency of cardiovascular-related hospitalization [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    A hierarchical combination of the endpoints for a pooled analysis of the tafamidis treatment groups in comparison to placebo


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 6-Minute Walk Test (6MWT). [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    Change from Baseline to Month 30 in the total distance walked in 6 minutes.

  • Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire (KCCQ) [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    Change from Baseline to Month 30 in the Kansas City Cardiomyopathy Questionnaire Overall Score (KCCQ-OS).

  • Cardiovascular-related mortality [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    The total number of deaths adjudicated as being related to cardiovascular causes.

  • Frequency of cardiovascular-related hospitalization [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    The number of times that a subject is hospitalized for cardiovascular-related causes.

  • All-cause mortality [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 30 ]
    The total number of deaths in the study.

  • TTR stabilization at Month 1 [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Month 1 ]
    Tafamidis stabilizes the transthyretin (TTR) tetramer by binding with very high affinity to the two thyroxine binding sites, preventing the tetramer from dissociating along the weak dimer-dimer interface. TTR stabilization is a measure of the degree of stabilization afforded the TTR molecule by tafamidis, expressed as a percentage change from baseline.
