Brief Summary:
This is a non-randomized open-label Phase 1 study to evaluate the safety and toxicity of gene therapy using a recombinant adeno-associated virus serotype 9 (AAV9) containing the human lysosome-associated membrane protein 2 isoform B (LAMP2B) transgene (investigational product (IP), RP-A501) in male patients with Danon Disease (DD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Danon Disease Biological: RP-A501 Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study is a non-randomized open-label Phase I clinical trial to characterize the safety and toxicity associated with infusion of a recombinant adeno-associated serotype 9 (rAAV9) capsid containing the human lysosome-associated membrane protein 2 isoform B (LAMP2B) transgene (investigational product (IP), RP-A501) in male patients with Danon Disease (DD).

During the course of the study, approximately 7-10 male subjects age 8 and over will receive a single intravenous (IV) infusion of the IP. Prior to infusion of IP, rituximab and sirolimus will be administered prophylactically.

All patients are planned to be followed for 36 months after investigational product administration. After the end of the follow-up period, patients will enter a Long-Term Follow-Up (LTFU) study enabling follow-up for an additional 2 to 5 years post-IP administration.

The study will also enable an initial evaluation of whether or not the IP results in cardiomyocyte and skeletal muscle transduction and gene expression and preliminary assessment of the extent of cardiomyocyte and histologic correction. Additionally, a preliminary evaluation of clinical stabilization following infusion will also be made.

Ages Eligible for Study:   8 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Main Criteria for Inclusion:

The study will enroll adult and pediatric males with a confirmed diagnosis of DD. Patients may be of any race or ethnicity. Patients and/or competent custodial parents must provide informed written consent and meet all of the enrollment criteria as detailed subsequently to be eligible to participate.

  1. DD diagnosis with any confirmed LAMP2 mutation(s).
  2. Cardiac involvement as documented by at least one abnormal finding on electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, gadolinium-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or electrophysiology study.
  3. Age ≥15 years for cohorts 1 and 2; 8-14 years for cohorts 1A.
  4. Male gender.
  5. New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class II or III.

  7. Adequate hepatic function as defined by:

    1. AST and ALT ≤10.0×ULN or GGT ≤2.0×ULN (transaminase elevations in DD are considered extensively to result from muscle injury; hence the relatively high upper limit for transaminases and consideration of GGT level, and the presence of additional hepatic eligibility markers of bilirubin and PT/INR).
    2. Serum bilirubin ≤1.2×ULN (i.e., Grade ≤1 bilirubin increase).
    3. PT/INR ≤1.2×ULN (in the absence of anticoagulation).
    4. Absence of cirrhosis or other signs of inflammation on liver ultrasound
  8. Adequate renal function as defined by creatinine ≤ULN.

  10. Ability to comply with study procedures including investigational therapy and follow-up evaluations.
  11. Able to walk >150 meters unassisted during the 6MWT.
  12. Patient has received meningococcal vaccination recommended by Centers for Disease Control as appropriate for age and health condition (vaccination must be performed at least 6 weeks prior to IP administration).

Main Criteria of Exclusion:

Patients meeting any of the following criteria are not eligible for study participation:

  1. I.V. therapy with positive inotropes, vasodilators, or diuretics within the 30 days prior to enrollment (i.e., patient must be stable on oral medical therapy).

  12. Active hepatitis B or C infection (including patients with positive hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg), hepatitis B core antibody (HBcAb), or detectable hepatitis B virus (HBV) or hepatitis C virus (HCV) viral load). Patients with previous, adequately resolved HBV or HCV are eligible.
  13. Significant medical conditions including documented human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, active viral or other hepatitis, poorly-controlled hypertension or diabetes, poorly controlled cardiac arrhythmia, or uncontrolled viral, bacterial, or fungal infection.
  14. Any concomitant medical or psychiatric condition that in the opinion of the Investigator renders the patient unfit for study participation or at higher than acceptable risk for study participation.
  15. Active hematologic or solid organ malignancy, not including non-melanoma skin cancer or other carcinoma in situ. Patients with previously resected solid organ malignancies or definitively treated hematologic malignancies may be eligible if there has been no evidence of active malignancy during the prior 3 years.
