Brief Summary:
Study AG348-C-003 is a multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of different dose levels of AG-348 in patients with PK deficiency.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency Drug: AG-348 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a Phase 2, open label, two arm, multicenter, randomized, dose-ranging study during which adult patients with PK deficiency will receive multiple doses of AG-348 for up to 24 weeks (Core Period); eligible patients may enter an Extension Period to receive AG-348 for up to 4 additional years. Data will be reviewed on a regular basis and study design, dose and schedule will be adapted based on these reviews. The study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of AG-348, pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) profile of AG-348 and early indicators of clinical efficacy.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 52 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 2, Open Label, Randomized, Dose Ranging, Safety, Efficacy, Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Study of AG-348 in Adult Patients With Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency
Actual Study Start Date : June 12, 2015
Actual Primary Completion Date : May 8, 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date : May 2021


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: AG-348 50 mg
Participants with PK deficiency received AG-348, 50 milligrams (mg), twice daily for the Core Period (Week 24). At the Week 24 visit, Core Period participants who had safely tolerated AG-348 and demonstrated clinical activity in response to AG-348 were potentially eligible to immediately roll over to the Extension Period for continued treatment. Participants were assigned to initial doses (50 or 300mg) and were treated across a range of doses due to treatment emergent AEs and Hb levels exceeding mid-point of sex-adjusted ranges.
Drug: AG-348
See arm for intervention description.

Experimental: AG-348 300 mg
