Phase 1/2 Study in Boys With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (MoveDMD)
The MoveDMD study is a 3-part, Phase 1/2, multi-site study to evaluate the safety, efficacy, pharmacokinetics (PK) and pharmacodynamics (PD) of CAT-1004 (now known as edasalonexent) in pediatric patients with a genetically confirmed diagnosis of DMD. Approximately 30 ambulatory, male patients from ≥4 to <8 years of age will be enrolled overall.
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.
Part A was initiated in April 2015 and is now complete. All three doses of CAT-1004 tested were generally well tolerated with no safety signals observed. The majority of adverse events were mild, and the most common adverse events were gastrointestinal (primarily diarrhea). There were no serious adverse events and no drug discontinuations.
Part B is 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 may also participate in Part B, along with newly enrolled patients. Following completion of Part B, all patients will receive CAT-1004 for 36 weeks in Part C, the open-label portion of the CAT-1004-201 study.
