Study of SAR339375 in Patients With Alport Syndrome (HERA)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.

Brief Summary:

Primary Objectives:

  • To assess the efficacy of SAR339375 in reducing the decline in renal function
  • To assess the safety and tolerability of SAR339375

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess plasma pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of the parent compound and its metabolites
  • To assess the immunogenicity of the SAR339375

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Alport's Syndrome Drug: Lademirsen (SAR339375) Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

The planned length of participation in the study for each subject is up to approximately 106 weeks (from screening through completion of follow-up). This includes:

  • Screening/baseline period of up to 4 weeks
  • Double-blind, placebo-controlled treatment period of 48 weeks
  • Open-label extension treatment period of 48 weeks ( opportunity for all subject to enter a 48-week open label extension period and receive active treatment with SAR339375)
  • Post-treatment follow-up period of 6 weeks

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics (PK) : Maximum concentration in plasma (Cmax) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]
    Plasma concentrations (Cmax) of parent SAR339375 and its metabolites

  2. Pharmacokinetics (PK) : Trough plasma concentration (Ctrough) [ Time Frame: 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]
    Plasma concentrations (Ctrough) of parent SAR339375 and its metabolites

  3. Number of participants with anti-drug antibodies (ADAs) [ Time Frame: Baseline to maximum 102 weeks ]
    Number of participants with ADAs incidents and titer

  4. Number of participant with adverse events associated to ADAs [ Time Frame: Baseline to maximum 102 weeks ]
    Association of ADAs with adverse events per participants will be collected.

  5. Percent change in eGFR values [ Time Frame: Baseline to 24 weeks and 48 weeks ]
    Percent change in eGFR values from baseline to 24 weeks and 48 weeks

  6. Proportion of subjects who reach end staged renal disease (ESRD) [ Time Frame: Baseline to 48 weeks ]
    Proportion of participants who reach ESRD as defined by an eGFR ≤15 mL/min/1.73 m^2 or initiation of hemodialysis or renal transplantation from baseline to 48 weeks -

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria :

  • Male or female
  • Confirmed diagnosis of Alport syndrome

    1. Clinical diagnosis (hematuria, family history, hearing loss, ocular change), AND
    2. Genetic confirmation of Alport Syndrome in the subject or the family member, OR
    3. Kidney biopsy showing glomerular basement membrane abnormalities (eg, significant thinning, thickening, irregularity or lucencies) consistent with Alport Syndrome.
  • Age 18-55 years old
  • eGFR > 35 ml/min/1.73m^2 and <90 mL/min/1.73m^2 (based on CKD-EPI) at screening
  • Renal Function Criteria (patients must meet at least one of the following CRITERIA A, B or C):
  • A)Decline in eGFR of ≥4 mL/min/1.73 m^2/year (eGFR slope <= -4) based on a linear regression slope analysis of ≥4 eGFR measurements within 3 years prior to the study and with a minimum of 2-year time span (the last, of the screening measurement, and first eGFR measurements should be separated by at least 2 years). eGFR should be calculated by using either the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) creatinine equation.
  • B) proteinuria (UPCR) >2000 mg/g (UACR>1000 mg/g)
  • C) Age and sex adjusted eGFR (based on CKD-Epi; male 18-23 eGFR<90 mL/min/1.73m^2

  • Negative drug screen for opiates, cocaine, heroin, phencyclidine, amphetamines (including ecstasy), barbiturates, benzodiazepines, and cannabinoids. At the Investigator's discretion, subjects prescribed benzodiazepines, cannabinoids, or opiates with positive results on a drug screen may be allowed.

  • ESRD as evidenced by ongoing dialysis therapy or history of renal transplantation
  • Any clinically significant illness within 30 days before screening or surgical or medical condition (other than Alport syndrome) that could interfere with the subject's study compliance; confound the study results; impact subject safety; or significantly alter the absorption, distribution, metabolism, or excretion of drugs.
  • Weight > 110 kg
  • Any history of active malignancy within the last 1 year (history of localized basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma and cervical carcinoma in situ that has been excised/appropriately treated or a fully excised malignant lesion with a low probability of recurrence will not be considered exclusionary)
  • Prior treatment with Bardoxolone within 90 days prior to screening
  • History or presence of alcoholism or drug abuse within 2 years before screening or other concurrent social conditions that would potentially interfere with the subject's study compliance, at the discretion of the Investigator

  • Any other condition or circumstance that, in the opinion of the Investigator, may make the subject unlikely to complete the study or comply with study procedures and requirements, or may pose a risk to the subject's safety and well-being
