A Phase IIa Study With Escalating Dose of MS1819-SD

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. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03481803

Brief Summary:

This is a Phase IIa study sponsored by AzurRx SAS and Syneos Health is a local representative sponsor and involves testing of a new medication for the compensation of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) caused by chronic pacreatitis (CP) and/or distal pancreatectomy. The new medication is called MS1819 Spray Dried (MS1819-SD) which is a lipase produced by the LIP2 gene of Yarrowia lipolytica using recombinant DNA technology.

The primary purpose of this study is to investigate the safety of escalating doses of study drug MS1819-SD in people with chronic pancreatitis. This enzyme has demonstrated an appropriate profile to compensate the pancreatic lipase (enzyme) deficiency that is common with CP patients. The deficiency in this enzyme can be responsible of greasy diarrhea, fecal urge and weight loss.

The design of the study is open-label, meaning that all eligible participants will receive the study drug MS1819-SD. The MS1819-SD dose will increase throughout the study during dose escalation visits in each treatment period; study includes a total of four treatment periods.

The total duration of the MS1819-SD treatment phase is of 48-60 days, The total duration of patient participation in the study is of 74-93 days.

Approximately twelve patients will be enrolled in this study.

Intervention Details:
  • Drug: MS1819-SD
    Patient will receive increasing doses from the lowest dose of MS1819-SD to a maximum dose of MS1819- SD. The total treatment phase will range from 48 days to 60 days.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Investigate safety of escalating doses of MS1819-SD as measured by number of participants with adverse events including clinical or laboratory abnormalities [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    Safety variables will be monitored by physical examination with particular attention paid to immunoallergic events and digestive symptomatology. In addition, laboratory tests will include haematology and biochemistry.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Investigate the efficacy of MS1819-SD in patients by the Coefficient of Fat Absorption change from baseline [ Time Frame: 60 days ]
    The primary efficacy endpoint is the Coefficient Fat Absorption (CFA) change from baseline.The secondary efficacy endpoints are the number of daily evacuations per day, the consistency of stools assessed by the Bristol scale (from Type 1 to Type 7) and the weight of stools during the stool collection period.
