Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: ATYR1940
Intrapatient dose escalation ATYR1940: ATYR1940 will be administered as an IV infusion at doses of 0.3, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/kg for up to 12 Weeks. The dose level in this study will not exceed 3.0 mg/kg.
Biological: ATYR1940
ATYR1940 will be administered as an IV infusion at doses of 0.3, 1.0, and 3.0 mg/kg using intrapatient dose escalation. The dose level in this study will not exceed 3.0 mg/kg
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
An initial IV infusion of placebo will be supplied as normal saline, and administered over a 30-minute period at Week 1.
Biological: Placebo
An initial IV infusion of placebo will be supplied as normal saline, and administered over a 30-minute period at Week 1.

Detailed Description:
A Phase 1b/2 open-label, intrapatient dose escalation study aiming to evaluate the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity, biological and pharmacodynamic activity of intravenous ATYR1940, administered once weekly for 12 weeks, in early onset FSHD patients with signs or symptoms prior to 10 years of age. In Stage 1, up to 8 patients between the ages of 16 and 25 years will be enrolled. Stage 2 of enrollment will include patients with early onset FSHD between the ages of 12 and 15 years.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   12 Years to 25 Years   (Child, Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Established, genetically confirmed diagnosis of FSHD.
  • Onset of FSHD signs or symptoms prior to 10 years of age, as documented in the patient's medical record or based on patient or family report.
  • Provide written informed consent or assent
  • In the Investigator's opinion, patient is willing and able to complete all study procedures and comply with the weekly study visit schedule.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Currently receiving treatment with an immunomodulatory agent including targeted biological therapies within the 3 months before baseline; corticosteroids within 3 months before baseline; or high-dose non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents within 2 weeks before baseline.
  • Currently receiving curcumin or albuterol; use of a product that putatively enhances muscle growth or activity on a chronic basis within 4 weeks before baseline; statin treatment initiation or significant adjustment to statin regimen within 3 months before baseline (stable, chronic statin use is permissible).
  • Use of an investigational product or device within 30 days before baseline.
  • Evidence of an alternative diagnosis other than FSHD or a coexisting myopathy or dystrophy, based on prior muscle biopsy or other available investigations.
  • History of severe restrictive or obstructive lung disease, or evidence for interstitial lung disease on screening chest radiograph.
  • History of anti-synthetase syndrome, prior Jo-1 Ab-positivity, or a positive or equivocally positive Jo-1 Ab test result during screening.
  • Chronic infection, such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, or human immunodeficiency virus or a history of tuberculosis.
  • Vaccination within 8 weeks before baseline or vaccination is planned during study participation.
  • Symptomatic cardiomyopathy or severe cardiac arrhythmia, that may, in the Investigator's opinion, limit the patient's ability to complete the study protocol.
  • Muscle biopsy within 30 days before baseline.
