Brief Summary:

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a devastating X-linked disease which leads to loss of ambulation between ages 7 and 13, respiratory failure and cardiomyopathy (CM) at any age, and inevitably premature death of affected young men in their late twenties. DMD is the most common fatal genetic disorder diagnosed in childhood. It affects approximately 1 in every 3,500 live male births across all races and cultures, and results in 20,000 new cases each year worldwide.Significant advances in respiratory care have unmasked CM as the leading cause of death. As there are yet no specific cardiac treatments to extend life, the current study aims to address this unmet medical need using a new therapeutic strategy for patients with DMD.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Cardiomyopathy Cardiomyopathy, Dilated Drug: Ifetroban Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple dose study with an optional open-label extension to determine the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK) and efficacy of two doses of oral ifetroban in subjects with DMD. DMD patients who meet the inclusion criteria and none of the exclusion criteria will receive oral ifetroban or placebo once daily for 12 months. Subjects will be enrolled onto one of three treatment groups, low-dose ifetroban, high-dose ifetroban or placebo. Each dose level will be evaluated by eight subjects with early stage (LVEF > 45%) DMD-associated cardiomyopathy and eight subjects with more advanced stage (LVEF 35-45%) cardiac disease as there may be differences in the treatment effect based on cardiac involvement. Each subject treated will be evaluated for first-dose and steady-state exposure PK. All subjects who receive treatment will be assessed for safety. All subjects with at least one efficacy assessment post-baseline will be evaluated for efficacy. Blood and urine will be collected for standard and novel cardiac biomarkers.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Treatment-Emergent Adverse Events (safety & tolerability) [ Time Frame: Baseline through 12 months ]
    Percentage of subjects with one or more treatment emergent adverse event

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pharmacokinetics Area under the curve [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 7 ]
    Measurements of Area under the curve concentration of ifetroban and its acyl glucuronide metabolite

  2. Pharmacokinetics maximum serum concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 7 ]
    Measurements of maximum serum concentration (Cmax) of ifetroban and its acyl glucuronide metabolite

  3. Pharmacokinetics time to reach Cmax (Tmax) concentration [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 7 ]
    Measurement of time to reach Cmax (Tmax) concentration of ifetroban and its acyl glucuronide metabolite

  4. Pharmacokinetics plasma terminal half-life concentration [ Time Frame: Day 0 and Day 7 ]
    Measurement of plasma terminal half-life concentration of ifetroban and its acyl glucuronide metabolite

  5. Change from baseline in left ventricular ejection fraction [ Time Frame: Baseline through 12 months ]
    There should be no change in left ventricular ejection fraction. Patients with DMD have a decline.

  6. Change from baseline in pulmonary function [ Time Frame: Baseline through 12 months ]
    Change from baseline in forced expiratory volume in 1 second

  7. Change from baseline in quality-of-life [ Time Frame: Baseline through 12 months ]
    The 23 items Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory (PedQL) questionnaire measures these core dimensions of health as delineated by the World Health Organization, as well as role (school) functioning. Items measured include 1) Physical Functioning (8 items), 2) Emotional Functioning (5 items), 3) Social Functioning (5 items), and 4) School Functioning (5 items). Each item is measured on a 5 point Likert scale with 0 indicating never and 4 indicating almost always.The Likert scores are reversed scored and linearly transform to a 0-100 scale with 0=100, 1-75, 2=50, 5=25, and 4=0. A higher score indicates better health-related quality of life.

Inclusion criteria:

  1. Males 7 years of age and older with the diagnosis of DMD, defined as phenotype consistent with DMD and either positive genotype, first degree relative with positive genotype, or confirmatory muscle biopsy.
  2. Stable dose of oral corticosteroids for at least 8 weeks or has not received corticosteroids for at least 30 days.
