The MoveDMD study is a 3-part, Phase 1/2, multi-site study to evaluate the safety, efficacy, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of edasalonexent (also known as CAT-1004) in pediatric patients with a genetically confirmed diagnosis of DMD. Male patients from ≥4 to <8 years of age will be enrolled.
Edasalonexent is an orally administered small molecule targeted to inhibit activated NF-κB, a molecule that is activated from infancy in DMD and which is central to causing muscle damage and preventing muscle regeneration. Data on magnetic resonance imaging of the lower and upper leg muscles, physical function (including timed function tests) and muscle strength will be studied.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Muscular Dystrophy, Duchenne||Drug: Edasalonexent Drug: Placebo||Phase 1 Phase 2|
Part A was a 1-week, open-label study to assess safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and biomarkers for three dose levels of edasalonexent and is now complete.
Part B was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple dose study to evaluate the safety, efficacy, PK, and PD of edasalonexent over 12 weeks. Patients who participated in Part A also participated in Part B, along with newly enrolled patients. Patients received either edasalonexent 67 mg/kg/day, edasalonexent 100 mg/kg/day, or placebo in Part B. Part B is now complete.
Following completion of Part B, patients receive edasalonexent for 112 weeks in Part C, the open-label portion of the MoveDMD study. Patients on the 67 mg/kg/day treatment moved to the 100 mg/kg/day treatment. Patients on the 100 mg/kg/day treatment remained on the 100 mg/kg/day treatment.
If clinically indicated, concomitant treatment with eteplirsen (Exondys 51™) may be acceptable in patients with amenable gene mutations during Part C after the patient has been exposed to edasalonexent for 6 months.
