Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of IV gallium to improve pulmonary function as measured by a 5% or greater relative improvement in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) from baseline to Day 28.

Funding Source - FDA OOPD


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Cystic Fibrosis Drug: Gallium nitrate Drug: Normal Saline Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a phase 2, multi-center, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in adults with CF chronically infected with P. aeruginosa. The study will evaluate the safety and clinical efficacy of a five day infusion of IV gallium nitrate (IV gallium). The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of IV gallium to improve pulmonary function as measured by a 5% or greater relative improvement in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) from baseline to Day 28.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: 5 day of infusion of gallium nitrate
Gallium nitrate will be infused continuously over 5 days at 200 mg/m2/day. Study drug will be administered via a peripheral IV catheter, a peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) line, midline catheter, or a chronic indwelling vascular access device () using an ambulatory infusion pump infused over 24 hours for 5 sequential days.
Drug: Gallium nitrate
Study subjects will receive an infusion of either placebo or gallium nitrate.
Other Name: Ga, GaN3O9

Placebo Comparator: 5 day of infusion of normal saline
Placebo with be dispensed as 1,000 milliliters of 0.9% sodium chloride to match the reconstitution volume of the IV Ga
Drug: Normal Saline
Study subjects will receive an infusion of either placebo (normal saline) or gallium nitrate.
Other Name: Sodium Chloride, NS




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Improvement in pulmonary function as measured by a 5% or greater relative improvement in forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1). [ Time Frame: Baseline to Day 28 ]
    Difference between treatment groups in the Proportion of subjects with 5% or greater relative change in FEV1 (liters) from baseline to Day 28.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety and tolerability of IV gallium, as measured by incidence of adverse events (AEs), changes in clinical safety labs, and hospitalizations. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Difference between treatment groups in safety parameters including the incidence of adverse events (AEs), changes in clinical safety labs, and hospitalizations.

  2. Improvement in measures of lung function including relative change in FEV1, absolute change in FEV1, and forced vital capacity (FVC). [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Improvement in lung function as measured by relative change in FEV1, absolute change in FEV1, and forced vital capacity (FVC), measured by difference between treatment groups in the change in pulmonary function parameters .

  3. Reduction of P. aeruginosa in the lungs of CF patients based on quantitative cultures of sputum. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Reduction of P. aeruginosa sputum density in the lungs of CF patients based difference between treatment groups', based on quantitative cultures.

  4. Improvement of respiratory symptoms as measured by the CF Respiratory Symptoms Diary-Chronic Respiratory Infection Symptom Severity Score (CFRSD-CRISS). [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Improvement in respiratory symptoms as measured by the difference between treatment groups in the CF Respiratory Symptoms Diary-Chronic Respiratory Infection Symptom Severity Score (CFRSD-CRISS).

  5. Sputum and blood PK profile of IV gallium [ Time Frame: Day 1 - Day 56 ]
    Sputum and blood PK profile of IV gallium measured by the determination of the steady state concentration (Css) and elimination half life (t1/2β ) in those subjects receiving IV gallium.

  6. Rate of acquired resistance of P. aeruginosa to gallium. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Rate of acquired resistance of P. aeruginosa to gallium, measured by the difference between treatment groups in the emergence of other CF pathogens, including gallium-resistant P. aeruginosa.

  7. Anti-inflammatory properties of IV gallium [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Difference between treatment groups in the change in blood inflammatory markers.

  8. Reduction in the use of antibiotics for an acute indication. [ Time Frame: Day 1 to Day 56 ]
    Reduction in the use of antibiotics for an acute indication measured by the difference between treatment groups in the rate of antibiotic usage including IV, oral, and inhaled for an acute indication.
