Study Description
Brief Summary:
Study A536-05 is an open-label extension study for patients previously enrolled in study A536-03 (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT01749514), to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of ACE-536 in patients with low or intermediate-1 risk MDS.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Myelodysplastic Syndromes Drug: ACE-536 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Study A536-05 is an open-label extension study to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacodynamic effects of up to 24 months of ACE-536 treatment in patients with low or intermediate-1 risk myelodysplastic syndromes previously treated with ACE-536 for up to 3 months in study A536-03 (ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier NCT01749514). The starting dose level in study A536-05 will be 1.0 mg/kg by subcutaneous (SC) injection every 3 weeks. Dose titration/modification rules will be followed for individual patients and will be based upon safety and efficacy data collected during the course of treatment.

Outcome Measures

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of ACE-536 in patients with low or intermediate-1 risk MDS who were previously enrolled in study A536-03 [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Erythroid response in non-transfusion dependent (NTD) patients [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
    Proportion of patients with a mean hemoglobin (Hgb) increase ≥ 1.5 g/dL over an 8-week period as compared to baseline, not influenced by red blood cell (RBC) transfusion

  2. Erythroid response in transfusion dependent (TD) patients [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
    Proportion of patients with a decrease of ≥ 4 units or ≥ 50% of units of red blood cells (RBCs) transfused over a period of 8 weeks, relative to the 8 weeks immediately prior to Day 1

  3. Proportion of TD patients who become transfusion independent [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
    Defined as patients requiring no RBC transfusion for a period of ≥ 8 weeks

  4. Time to, and duration of, erythroid response in NTD and TD patients [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
  5. Mean mean change in RBC transfusion burden (#RBC units/8 weeks) in TD patients [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
  6. Mean change in hemoglobin levels in NTD patients [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
  7. ACE-536 pharmacokinetic profile (Tmax, Cmax and AUC) [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
  8. Change from baseline in markers of erythropoiesis [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]
  9. Change from baseline in markers of iron metabolism [ Time Frame: From first dose (Study Day1) to end of treatment (Study Day 730) ]

In addition, patients with treatment interruption (defined as patients who complete their end-of-study visit in A536-03 and cannot directly roll over to A536-05) must also meet the following criteria:
