Brief Summary:

Zika virus (ZIKV) infection is a new emerging arbovirus disease, caused by the same vector that transmits Dengue virus, Aedes aegypti. ZIKV is a growing public health problem, rapidly spreading throughout the continents since the first epidemic was reported in the French Polynesian islands.

Currently, there are several ZIKV vaccine candidates in clinical trials. However, no ZIKV therapy (biologic or small molecule) has advanced to clinical trials. Tyzivumab will be the first therapeutic in the world, specifically targeting ZIKV, to enter clinical trials.

This is a Phase 1, time-lagged, parallel-group, randomized, placebo-controlled, single-blind, single ascending dose, Tyzivumab, ZIKV monoclonal antibody (mAb), study to be conducted in ZIKV polymerase chain reaction (PCR) positive patients.

Tyzivumab will be administered once through single IV infusion over 30 minutes. Total duration of study participation is estimated at approximately 85 days from the date of screening. Post-trial monitoring through weekly telephone calls will continue from Day 85 post-dose onwards for another three (3) more months.

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of Tyzivumab in acutely infected adult patients. Assessment of time taken to achieve negative ZIKV isolation from acute ZIKV infected subjects' blood will be the study's secondary objectives.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Treatment of Acute Zika Virus Infection Biological: Tyzivumab Other: Placebo Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Dose escalation in this study will include 28 ZIKV-infected patients in four (4) dose cohorts.

Eligible subjects will be enrolled into dose cohorts of seven (7) subjects each. Within each dose cohort, subjects will be randomized to either Tyzivumab or Placebo Groups, with five (5) subjects receiving Tyzivumab and two (2) receiving Placebo per cohort. There will be up to four (4) dose levels / cohorts, for a total of 28 subjects. The proposed doses to be studied are 2, 5, 10, and 20 mg/kg.

Within each dose cohort, a minimum of 48-hour interval is required between Tyzivumab dosing of subject 1 and 2 and between subject 2 and 3, and a minimum of 24-hour interval is required between Tyzivumab dosing of subject 3 and 4 and between subject 4 and 5. No such time interval will be required for the Placebo dosing of subjects (i.e. a Placebo subject can be dosed concurrently with or immediately after a Tyzivumab treatment subject). Dosing of the last dose cohort (20 mg/kg) is optional if a trend of reduction in viral load and viral isolation has been observed in dose level 1 (2 mg/kg), 2 (5 mg/kg) or 3 (10 mg/kg).

Dose escalations will be guided by review of clinical signs, adverse events (AEs), and laboratory tests (including viral titre data) of the prior group (up to Day 7 after dosing) by a safety monitoring committee. Safety analysis (up to Day 7) will also be completed for the equivalent dose of ZKT-001 prior to the commencement of dosing in ZKT-002 for each specified dose.

PD, PK and ADA measurements will be conducted at various time points throughout the study. Subjects will be followed for up to approximately Day 84 safety and tolerability assessment. Serum samples for PD, PK and ADA assessments, and urine samples for PD assessments will be taken at specified time points.
