Brief Summary:
Funding Source - FDA OOPD. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the study drug, Arimoclomol in IBM patients.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Inclusion Body Myositis Drug: Arimoclomol Other: Placebo Phase 2

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 150 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Phase II Study of Arimoclomol for the Treatment of Sporadic Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM)
Actual Study Start Date : August 9, 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2021


Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Arimoclomol
Participants will be asked to take 400mg arimoclomol three times a day.
Drug: Arimoclomol
2 200mg pills taken 3 times per day during breakfast, early afternoon and at bedtime

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Participants will be asked to take 400mg placebo three times a day.
Other: Placebo
2 matched placebo pills to be taken 3 times per day during breakfast, early afternoon and at bedtime




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Decline in Inclusion body myositis functional rating scale (IBMFRS) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 12 ]
    Measured by rate of decline in the IBMFRS between experimental and placebo groups. The IBMFRS is a 10 item questionnaire. Scores for each item range from 0 to 4. There is a total maximum score of 40 and minimum score of 0. The higher the score the better functional status of the person.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Manual Muscle Testing (MMT) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  2. Maximum voluntary isometric contraction (MVICT) of quadriceps [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  3. Grip and pinch test [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  4. modified timed up and go (mTUG) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  5. 6 minute walk test with 2 minute distance captured [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  6. Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ-DI) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  7. SF-36 [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
    Measured using the Short form health survey with 36 items (SF-36).

  8. Count of adverse events [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
  9. Decline in Inclusion body myositis functional rating scale (IBMFRS) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Month 20 ]
    Measured by rate of decline in the IBMFRS between experimental and placebo groups. The IBMFRS is a 10 item questionnaire. Scores for each item range from 0 to 4. There is a total maximum score of 40 and minimum score of 0. The higher the score the better functional status of the person.
