Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to determine whether tolvaptan is effective and safe for the treatment of late-stage chronic kidney disease due to autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Chronic Kidney Disease Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease Drug: Tolvaptan (OPC-41061) Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The protocol will extend the understanding of the efficacy and safety of tolvaptan treatment in ADPKD patients with late stage 2 to early stage 4 CKD (chronic kidney disease).

This trial will compare the efficacy of tolvaptan treatment in reducing the annualized change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) from pre-treatment baseline to post-treatment follow-up, as compared with placebo, in subjects who tolerate tolvaptan during an initial run-in period. The change in eGFR, calculated by the Chronic Kidney Disease-Epidemiology (CKD-EPI) formula, will provide kidney function data that are complementary to the data demonstrating the benefits previously observed primarily in ADPKD subjects with earlier stages of disease.

Also, it will compare the efficacy of tolvaptan treatment in reducing the decline of annualized eGFR slope, as compared with placebo, in this type of subjects. Finally, it will compare the overall and hepatic safety profile of tolvaptan with placebo and to compare incidence of ADPKD complications (outcomes) during the trial

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The Mean Annualized Change in eGFR From Pretreatment Baseline to Post-treatment Follow-up. [ Time Frame: Pretreatment baseline to post-treatment follow-up (up to 61 weeks). ]

    The mean annualized change in eGFR was calculated using the Chronic Kidney Disease-Epidemiology (CKD-EPI) formula from pretreatment baseline to post-treatment follow-up, annualized (divided) by each subject's trial duration.

    The baseline for the primary endpoint was defined as the average of up to 3 eGFR values observed during the screening and placebo run-in periods.



Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Mean Annualized Slope of eGFR Change [ Time Frame: Pretreatment baseline to post-treatment follow-up (up to 61 weeks). ]

    To compare the efficacy of tolvaptan treatment in reducing the decline of annualized eGFR slope, as compared with placebo, in subjects with late-stage CKD due to ADPKD who tolerated tolvaptan during an initial run-in period, the annualized rate of eGFR change was derived from each individual subject's eGFR slope using the CKD-EPI formula.

    The annualized eGFR change slope was derived from all eGFR observations from placebo-run-in, tolvaptan run-in, double-blind treatment and post-treatment follow-up periods using the linear mixed model of analysis. The mean annualized slope of eGFR change is presented.



Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Mean Change From Baseline in Urine Osmolality During the Double-blind Treatment Period and Post-treatment Follow-up [ Time Frame: Baseline and Months 3, 6, 9 and 12 (End of treatment visit) of the double-blind treatment period, and post-treatment follow-up. ]
    The mean change from baseline in urine osmolality for the double-blind treatment period collection timepoints and post-treatment follow-up are presented. Baseline was defined as the last evaluation prior to post-randomization dosing.

  2. Mean Change From Baseline in Urine Specific Gravity During the Double-blind Treatment Period and Post-treatment Follow-up [ Time Frame: Baseline and Months 3, 6, 9 and 12 (End of treatment visit) of the double-blind treatment period, and post-treatment follow-up. ]
    The mean change from baseline in urine specific gravity for the double-blind treatment period collection timepoints and post-treatment follow up are presented. Baseline was defined as the last evaluation prior to post-randomization dosing.
