Brief Summary:

A multicenter, double-blind, randomized, parallel-group comparative Phase II clinical study to assess the efficacy and safety of different doses of XC8 vs Placebo in patients with partly controlled bronchial asthma receiving stable treatment with low doses of inhaled corticosteroids with or without long-acting beta2-agonists during 12-weeks treatment period.

Study design was developed by Pharmenterprises LLS, Russia in cooperation with Eurrus Biotech GmbH, Austria and FGK Clinical Research GmbH, Germany.

The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the effect of different doses of XC8 on change in pre-bronchodilator forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) (% of predicted value) at Week 12 as compared to baseline at Week 0 vs. Placebo in patients with partly controlled bronchial asthma (BA).


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Bronchial Asthma Drug: XC8 Oral Tablet Drug: Placebo Oral Tablet Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Twenty Russian centers were approved for participation in this study. Twelve centers were initiated. Patients were enrolled in 12 centers. The study consisted of 4 periods: Screening, Run-In Period, Treatment Period, and Follow-up. All eligible patients were randomized into one of four treatment groups in a ratio of 1:1:1:1.

Treatment group of XC8 2 mg daily (30 patients) Treatment group of XC8 10 mg daily (30 patients) Treatment group of XC8 100 mg daily (30 patients) Treatment group of Placebo (30 patients) The study drug was manufactured by order Pharmenterprises LLS, Russia and Eurrus Biotech GmbH, Austria. During the treatment period (12 weeks) patients took the study drug or Placebo once a day in addition to stable low doses of Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) with or without long-acting beta2-agonists (LABA). The follow-up period lasted for 4 weeks.


Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 120 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: At Visit 2, Week -1 the patients who meet all inclusion/exclusion criteria were included in the single-blind placebo run-in period. At Visit 3, Week 0 all patients were randomized to 4 treatment groups in 1:1:1:1 ratio (30 patients per each group of XC8 2 mg, 10 mg or 100 mg; and 30 patients to Placebo group).
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Masking Description:

Single-blinding was conducted during the run-in period of the study (each patient received simultaneously 3 tablets of Placebo matching 2, 10, and 100 mg XC8), the form of the package (a blister with three lines of tablets of each dosage), corresponding package labeling of the study drug (IP kit numbers).

Double-blinding in the treatment period was provided by Placebo masking (each patient received simultaneously 3 tablets corresponding to 2 mg or Placebo, 10 mg or Placebo, 100 mg or Placebo), the form of the package (a blister with three lines of tablets of each dosage), corresponding package labeling of the study drug (IP kit numbers) and distribution of the drug by IWRS.

Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Multicenter, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Clinical Trial to Assess Efficacy, Safety and Optimal Dose of XC8 in Patients With Partly Controlled Bronchial Asthma Receiving Stable Treatment With Low Doses of Inhaled Corticosteroids With or Without Long-acting beta2-agonists
