Brief Summary:
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of IFX-1 treatment as replacement for glucocorticoid (GC) therapy in subjects with GPA and MPA.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Polyangiitis, Granulomatosis With Drug: IFX-1 Drug: Placebo-IFX-1 Drug: Glucocorticoid (GC) Drug: Placebo-Glucocorticoid (Placebo-GC) Phase 2

Detailed Description:

AAV is a group of potentially life-threatening autoimmune diseases. Preclinical data demonstrate that primed neutrophils are activated by ANCA and generate C5a that engages C5a receptors on neutrophils. Patients with ANCA-related disease have elevated plasma and urine levels of C5a in active disease but not in remission. IFX-1 is as a monoclonal antibody specifically binding to the soluble human complement split product C5a, which results in nearly complete blockade of C5a induced biological effects. Therefore, IFX-1 may be effective in the treatment of subjects with AAV.

In this Phase II study of 20 to 81 subjects with GPA or MPA, IFX-1 will be administered in combination with reduced dose glucocorticoids or a placebo glucocorticoid compared with standard dose glucocorticoids.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of subjects achieving clinical response (reduction in Birmingham Vasculitis Activity Score [BVAS] of ≥50% compared to baseline and no worsening in any body system) [ Time Frame: Week 16 ]
    Efficacy Endpoint based on clinical response evaluated through BVAS.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAE) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Safety endpoint: Number and percentage of subjects who had a TEAE.

  2. Serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Safety endpoint: Number and percentage of subjects with SAEs

  3. Adverse Events of Special Interest (AESIs) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Safety endpoint: Number and percentage of subjects with AESIs

  4. Glucocorticoid (GC)-induced toxicity of standard-dose GC and reduced-dose GC with IFX-1 treatment [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Safety Endpoint: Glucocorticoid-induced toxicity as measured by the Glucocorticoid Toxicity Index

  5. Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic modelling of IFX-1 treatment [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Plasma concentration of IFX-1
