This is a Phase 2, open-label, sequential cohort dose-escalation study of BMN 111 in children with achondroplasia. The primary objective is to assess the safety and tolerability of daily BMN 111 administered to children with achondroplasia.

Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety Measures [ Time Frame: 6 months and approximately 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety evaluations by incidence of adverse events, serious adverse events, laboratory test results (urinalysis, chemistry, hematology), clinically significant changes in vital signs, physical examination, ECG and ECHO results, imaging, and anti-BMN 111 immunogenicity assessments.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy measure [ Time Frame: 6 months and approximately 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Efficacy will be assessed by change from baseline in height growth velocity (annualized to cm/yr), absolute growth, subject growth compared with ACH and non-ACH standardized pediatric growth curves, and change in body proportions. These will be assessed by anthropometric measurements and measurement ratios.

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: January 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date: January 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: BMN 111 - Subcutaneous Injection

111-202 is an open-label sequential cohort dose-escalation study. BMN 111 will be administered as a morning dose in one of the following daily dosing regimens:

• Cohort 1: 2.5 microgram/kg, Cohort 2: 7.5 microgram/kg, and Cohort 3: 15.0 microgram/kg.

Drug: BMN 111
BMN 111 will be administered daily for 24 months in an open-label sequential dose escalation fashion.
Other Name: Modified recombinant human C-type natriuretic peptide
