Brief Summary:

This is a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, 6-month study followed by a 6 month open-label extension phase to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of MN-001 in moderate to severe IPF patients. MN-001 750 mg or matching placebo will be orally administered twice daily over a 26 week period in subjects with a confirmed diagnosis of IPF per the ATS )American Thoracic Society) 2011 Guidelines. Approximately 15 subjects are planned to be enrolled. This study will consist of two treatment arms, MN-001 and matching placebo. Randomization will occur in a 2:1 ratio (MN-001: placebo). Eligible subjects will consist of males and females ranging in age from 21 to 80 years old, inclusive.

The study will consist of a Screening Phase (up to 3 months prior to Day1) followed by a 26 week double-blind Treatment Phase, a 26 week Open-Label Extension (OLE) phase and a Follow-up Visit (within 4 weeks after the last dose).


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis IPF Drug: tipelukast Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 15 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Double-Blind Six Month Study Followed by an Open-Label Extension Phase to Evaluate the Efficacy, Safety and Tolerability of MN-001 in Subjects With Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF)
Study Start Date : March 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2018


Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Double-Blind Treatment

Subjects who complete all of the screening assessments and meet all inclusion/exclusion criteria will be started on MN-001 (tipelukast) 750 mg or matching placebo bid. Subjects will return to the clinic on Treatment Day 1 to receive their first dose of study medication. Subsequently, subjects will return to the clinic on a regular basis for 26 weeks.

During the Treatment Phase, safety and efficacy parameters will be assessed and concomitant medications will be documented. The safety and tolerability of MN-001 will be evaluated by an Independent Safety Monitor during this phase.

Drug: Placebo
Excipients of MN-001/tipelukast

Open-Label Extension
Upon completion of the Double-blind Treatment Phase, subjects who were taking placebo, will participate in the open-label extension (OLE) phase for an additional 6 months. Subjects randomized to the MN-001 (tipelukast) group will continue the study drug for additional 6 months.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline of FVC (forced vital capacity) at 26 weeks [ Time Frame: 26 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The safety of MN-001 in subjects with IPF assessed by number of adverse events experienced by each participant [ Time Frame: Subjects will return to the clinic at Months 1, 3, 6, and will be followed by telephone at Week 1 and Month 4 ]
  2. Tolerability of MN-001 in subjects with IPF assessed by number of adverse events experienced by each participant [ Time Frame: Subjects will return to the clinic at Months 1, 3, and 6 and will be followed by telephone at Week 1 and Month 4 ]
  3. Rate of decline on disease activity based on the 6-minute walk test [ Time Frame: The rate of decline on disease activity will be assessed at the 26-week visit ]
  4. Change from baseline on disease activity based on Modified Medical Research Council Dyspnea Score (MMRC) [ Time Frame: The change from baseline on disease activity will be assessed at the 26-week visit ]
  5. Change from baseline on quality of life (QOL) measured by A Tool to Assess Quality of Life in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (ATAQ-IPF) [ Time Frame: The change from baseline on QOL will be assessed at the 26-week visit ]
  6. Frequency of worsening IPF based on 6-minute walk test score [ Time Frame: Worsening of IPF will be assessed at Screening, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9 and Month 12. ]
  7. Frequency of worsening IPF based on Modified Medical Research Council Dyspnea Score (MMRC) [ Time Frame: Frequency of worsening IPF will be assessed at Screening, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9 and Month 12. ]
  8. Time to first worsening IPF based on MMRC score [ Time Frame: Time to first worsening IPF will be assessed at Screening, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9 and Month 12. ]
  9. Time to first worsening IPF based on 6MWT score [ Time Frame: Time to first worsening IPF will be assessed at Screening, Month 3, Month 6, Month 9 and Month 12. ]
  10. Change from baseline of FVC (forced vital capacity) % predicted at 26 weeks [ Time Frame: Change from baseline of FVC will be measured at 26 weeks ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 80 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Females of child-bearing potential must have a negative serum ß-hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) at screening and must be willing to use appropriate contraception (as defined by the investigator) for the duration of study treatment and 30 days after the last dose of study treatment.
  • Males should practice contraception for the duration of study treatment and 30 days after the last dose of study treatment as follows: condom use and contraception by female partner.

  • Immune system disease
  • Any significant laboratory abnormality which, in the opinion of the Investigator, may put the subject at risk

Note: Active medical conditions that are minor or well-controlled are not exclusionary if, in the judgment of the Investigator, they do not affect risk to the subject or the study results. In cases in which the impact of the condition upon risk to the subject or study results is unclear, the Medical Monitor should be consulted.
