Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 15 participants
Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1/2, Dose-Escalation, Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy Study of Valoctocogene Roxaparvovec, an Adenovirus-Associated Virus Vector-Mediated Gene Transfer of Human Factor VIII in Patients With Severe Haemophilia A

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BMN 270
BMN 270 is administered as a single IV Infusion.
Genetic: BMN 270

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment-related adverse events, as assessed by Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) v4.03 for 7 years following valoctocogene roxaparvovec infusion. [ Time Frame: 85 Months ]
  2. To determine the dose of AAV5-hFVIII-SQ required to achieve expression of FVIII at or above 5% of normal activity (>5 IU/dL) at 16 weeks after infusion. [ Time Frame: 85 Months ]
    The kinetics, duration and magnitude of AAV-mediated FVIII activity in individuals with haemophilia A will be determined and correlated to an appropriate BMN 270 dose.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. To describe the immune response to the FVIII transgene product and AAV capsid proteins following systemic administration of AAV5-hFVIII-SQ [ Time Frame: 85 Months ]
  2. Frequency of FVIII replacement therapy during the study [ Time Frame: 85 Months ]
  3. Number of bleeding episodes requiring treatment during the study [ Time Frame: 85 Months ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Males that are 18 years or older with established severe Haemophilia A as evidenced by their medical history. Patients will be considered as severe if their base FVIII level is 1 IU/dL or less
  2. Treated/exposed to FVIII concentrates or cryoprecipitate for a minimum of 150 exposure days (EDs)
  3. Greater or equal to 12 bleeding episodes only if on on-demand therapy over the previous 12 months. Does not apply to patients on prophylaxis
  4. Able to sign informed consent and comply with requirements of the trial
  5. No history of inhibitor, and results from a modified Nijmegen Bethesda assay of less than 0.6 Bethesda Units (BU) 2 consecutive occasions at least one week apart within the past 12 months
  6. Sexually active patients must be willing to use an acceptable method of contraception such as double barrier, including hormonal contraception for at least 6 months post-treatment. After 6 months, subjects may stop contraception use only if they have had 3 consecutive semen samples below the limit of detection of the test.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Detectable pre-existing immunity to the AAV5 capsid as measured by AAV5 transduction inhibition or AAV5 total antibodies
  2. Any evidence of active infection or any immunosuppressive disorder.
  3. HIV positive
  4. Significant liver dysfunction as defined by abnormal elevation of:

    • ALT (alanine transaminase) to 3 times the upper limit of normal;
    • Bilirubin above 3 times the upper limit of normal;
    • Alkaline phosphatase above 3 times the upper limit of normal; or
    • INR (international normalized ratio) ≥ 1.4.
  5. Potential participants who have had a liver biopsy in the past 3 years are excluded if they had significant fibrosis of 3 or 4, as rated on a scale of 0-4.
  6. Evidence of any bleeding disorder not related to Haemophilia A
  7. Platelet count of < 100 x 10^9/L
  8. Creatinine ≥ 1.5 mg/dL
  9. Liver cirrhosis of any etiology as assessed by liver ultrasound
  10. Hepatitis B if surface antigen is positive
  11. Hepatitis C if RNA is positive
  12. Treatment with any IP within 30 days prior to the end of the screening period
  13. Any disease or condition at the physician's discretion that would prevent the patient from fully complying with the requirements of the study including possible corticosteroid treatment outlined in the protocol. The physician may exclude patients unwilling or unable to agree on not using alcohol for the 16-week period following the viral infusion.
  14. Prior treatment with any gene transfer agent
  15. Major surgery planned in the 16-week period following the viral infusion
  16. Use of systemic immunosuppressive agents or live vaccines within 30 days before the viral infusion
