Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pacritinib in hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19 with or without cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
COVID Drug: Pacritinib Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 3 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of pacritinib in hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19 with or without cancer. Severe COVID-19 is defined as confirmed disease in patients who are hospitalized with hypoxia (blood oxygen saturation [SpO2] ≤93% on room air at sea level), respiratory rate >30, arterial oxygen partial pressure [PaO2]/ fraction of inspired oxygen [FiO2] <300, or lung infiltrates >50% but do not require IMV.

Patients will be randomized 1:1 to receive pacritinib (400 mg once daily [QD] on Day 1, then 200 mg twice daily [BID] from Day 2 to Day 14) + SOC or placebo + SOC.

Assigned treatment will continue for up to Day 14 or until the patient experiences intolerable adverse events (AEs), withdraws consent, or initiates another investigational therapy or until the study is terminated. Assigned therapy may be given for an additional 7 days (for a total of 21 days) with the approval of the Medical Monitor if, in the opinion of the investigator, the patient's clinical signs and symptoms are improving and the potential benefit outweighs the potential risk.In the event of hospital discharge, patients will complete treatment with the assigned therapy as an outpatient.

Official Title: A Phase 3 Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter Study of Pacritinib Plus Standard of Care Versus Placebo and Standard of Care in Hospitalized Patients With Severe COVID-19 With or Without Cancer
Actual Study Start Date : May 22, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : July 31, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : October 31, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Pacritinib and SOC
Pacritinib 400 mg once daily [QD] on Day 1, then 200 mg twice daily [BID] from Day 2 to Day 14) + SOC
Drug: Pacritinib
100 mg capsules

Placebo Comparator: Placebo and SOC
4 capsules once daily [QD] on Day 1, then 2 capsules twice daily [BID] from Day 2 to Day 14) + SOC
Drug: Placebo
Placebo capsules matching pacritinib 100 mg capsules




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of patients who progress to IMV and/or ECMO or death during the 28 days following randomization [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
    The proportion is calculated as the number of patients who progress divided by the total number of patients in the ITT population.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Hospitalized or will be hospitalized prior to randomization for the treatment of severe COVID-19 with SARS-CoV-2 infection confirmed by a positive polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or another rapid test of any respiratory specimen at Screening or documented within 1 week prior to Screening (Severe COVID-19 is defined as confirmed disease in patients who are hospitalized with hypoxia [SpO2 ≤93% on room air], respiratory rate >30, PaO2/FiO2 <300, or lung infiltrates >50% but do not require IMV).

  • Prior history of lung cancer
  • Any active grade 2 or higher hemorrhage
  • Any active gastrointestinal or metabolic condition that could interfere with absorption of oral medication
  • Uncontrolled intercurrent illness that, in the judgment of the treating physician, would limit compliance with study requirements
  • Known seropositivity for human immunodeficiency virus with cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) count < 200/mm3
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding, or positive pregnancy test in a pre-dose examination
  • Concurrent enrollment in another interventional trial (investigational COVID-19 antiviral studies may be permitted if approved by the Medical Monitor)
  • Serum creatinine > 2.5 mg/dL
  • Direct bilirubin > 4× the upper limit of normal
  • QT corrected by the Fridericia method (QTcF) prolongation > 450 msec
  • Known history of New York Heart Association Class II, III, or IV congestive heart failure prior to hospital admission
  • Known allergic reaction to any Janus kinase 2 (JAK2) inhibitor
  • Exposure to any JAK2 inhibitor within 28 days
  • Currently receiving a strong CYP3A4 inhibitor or strong P450 inducer (Appendix 1 and Appendix 2, respectively) and unable to stop the medication prior to the first dose of study drug and throughout the duration of study drug administration Treatment with cytoreductive chemotherapy administered within 14 days prior to randomization
  • Administration of an IL-1 or IL-6 blocking immunomodulatory agent (such as tocilizumab, canakinumab, sarilumab, anakinra) within 48 hours of randomization
  • Currently receiving therapeutic anticoagulation or antiplatelet medication and unable to stop the medication prior to randomization. Prophylactic anticoagulation therapy or aspirin (≤ 100mg) are permitted.
  • Unable to ingest capsules or tablets at randomization
