|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Skeletal Muscle Mitochondrial Dysfunction in the Elderly||Drug: Elamipretide Drug: Placebo||Phase 2|
This was a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study, enrolling 41 elderly subjects with previous evidence of mitochondrial dysfunction to evaluate whether the administration of MTP-131 (elamipretide) will change either hand skeletal muscle energetics or muscle performance in age-related skeletal muscle mitochondrial dysfunction.
Subjects were randomized 1:1 to receive either elamipretide at 0.25 mg/kg/hr intravenously at a rate of 60 mL/hr for 2 hours, or placebo (lyophilized excipients without elamipretide) intravenously at a rate of 60 mL/hr for 2 hours. Each treatment group went through three distinct periods: Screening (up to 28 days), Treatment (1day), and Observation (7 days).

Elamipretide given as an intravenous infusion of 0.25 mg/kg/hr at a rate of 60 mL/hr for 2 hours.
Elamipretide 0.25 mg/kg/hour administered as an intravenous infusion at the rate of 60 mL/hour for 2 hours
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo (lyophilized excipients without elamipretide) given as an intravenous infusion at a rate of 60 mL/hr for 2 hours.
Placebo administered as intravenous infusion at a rate of 60 mL/hour for 2 hours
Other Name: elamipretide
- Change From Baseline in ATPmax (Maximal ATP Synthetic Rate) [ Time Frame: From Baseline, Day 1 Hour 2 (2 hours after the start of infusion, or end of infusion) and Day 7 ]Maximal ATP synthetic rate (phosphorylation capacity per unit muscle volume) as determined by a muscle fatigue test.
- Mean Change From Baseline in Phosphate/Oxygen (P/O) Ratio [ Time Frame: From Baseline, Day 1 Hour 2 (2 hours after the start of infusion, or end of infusion) and Day 7 ]As a measure of mitochondrial hand skeletal muscle energetics, mitochondrial coupling, or Phosphate/Oxygen ratio (P/O) was assessed at Baseline, Day 1 Hour 2, and Day 7.
- Mean Change From Baseline in Nicotine Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) [ Time Frame: From Baseline, Day 1 Hour 2 (2 hours after the start of infusion, or end of infusion) and Day 7 ]
- Mean Change From Baseline in Muscle Force-Time-Integral (FTI) [ Time Frame: From Baseline to Day 1 Hour 2, Day 3, and Day 7 ]Muscle Force-Time-Integral was measured as mean change from baseline at Day 1 Hour 2, Day 3, and Day 7.

|Ages Eligible for Study:||60 Years to 85 Years (Adult, Older Adult)|
|Sexes Eligible for Study:||All|
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:||No|
- Are male and female adults aged ≥60 and ≤85 years
- Female subjects must be post-menopausal
- Have in vivo phosphorus-31 (31P) Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) and (Optical Spectra Scan (OPS) determined maximum adenosine triphosphate synthetic rate (ATPmax) < 0.70 milliMol/second (mM/sec)
- Have in vivo 31P MRS and OPS determined P/O (Phosphate/Oxygen ratio) < 1.9
- Are ambulatory and able to perform activities of daily living without assistance
- Had sufficient venous access for study drug administration and clinical testing.
- Could speak and read English fluently.
- Provided informed consent.
- Had significant disease(s) or condition(s) which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may have put the subject at risk because of their participation in the study or may have influenced either the results of the study or the subject's ability to participate in the study.
- Had a history of rhabdomyolysis.
- Had been hospitalized within 3 months prior to Screening for major atherosclerotic events (e.g., myocardial infarction, target-vessel revascularization, coronary bypass surgery or stroke) or other major medical condition (as deemed by the Primary Investigator).
- Had any metal implants that could not be removed from the body that in the opinion of the Investigator were a contra-indication for undergoing the MRS procedure or any other protocol-related procedure.
- Had an implanted cardiac pacemaker or other implanted cardiac device.
- Had a serum sodium level <136 milliequivalents per litre (mEq/L) at Screening or Pre-infusion.
- Had a hemoglobin level <12 g/dL at Screening or Pre-infusion.
- Had chronic, uncontrolled hypertension as judged by the Investigator (e.g., Baseline systolic blood pressure [SBP] >140 mm Hg, diastolic blood pressure [DBP] > 90 mm Hg) or a SBP >150 mm Hg or DBP >95 mm Hg at the time of Screening or Baseline (if the initial blood pressure [BP] reading was above these values, the reading may have been repeated one time within 20 minutes of the initial reading).
- Had a body mass index (BMI) of <16 or >35 kg/m2.
- Had a creatinine clearance <45 mL/min as calculated by the Cockcroft Gault equation.
- Had a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) demonstrating severe bradycardia (heart rate < 40 bpm) or average corrected QC interval (QTc) >450 ms for males and > 470 ms for females, and in the opinion of the Investigator was clinically significant. (If on the initial ECG, QTc exceeded 450 ms for males or 470 ms for females, the ECG was to be repeated 2 more times and the average of the 3 QTc values was to be used to determine the subject's eligibility).

- Had any symptoms consistent with or a current diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy, such as numbness, tingling, pain, or altered sensation of hands or feet.

- Had a history of cancer, unless subject had documentation of completed curative treatment.
- Had a history of or risk factors (e.g., significant family history, concomitant medical condition) for deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.
- Had a history of serious mental illness as judged by the Investigator.
- Had a body temperature > 37.5°C at the time of planned dosing.

- Had participated, within the last 30 days, in a clinical study involving an investigational product. If the previous investigational product had a long half-life, 3 months or 5 half-lives (whichever was longer) should have passed.
- Had previously been randomized into any study investigating elamipretide or been exposed to elamipretide for any reason.
