Drug: ATI-450
Oral, small molecule MK2 inhibitor




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assess the safety and tolerability of ATI-450 to maintain remission in patients with CAPS previously managed with anti-IL-1 therapy: Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Adverse Events (AEs) will be coded with the Medical Dictionary for Regulatory Activities (MedDRA). AEs will be presented by system organ class and preferred term in frequency tables.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total Number of participants who maintain disease remission (hsCRP) [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Remission is defined as a high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) within normal range (≤10 mg/L).

  2. Total Number of participants who maintain disease remission (SAA) [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Remission is defined as a serum amyloid A (SAA) value within the normal range (≤10 mg/L).

  3. Total number of participants who maintain disease remission (PGA) [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Remission is defined as a Physician Global Assessment (PGA) score of absent or minimal. The Physician's Global Assessment of Autoinflammatory Disease Activity (PGA) is a measure to be completed by the investigator or designee. The PGA uses a 5-point rating scale: absent, minimal, mild, moderate, and severe. The investigator will select a rating based on the patient's current disease activity at the time of the visit. Lower PGA scores represent better outcomes.

  4. Time to relapse [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Relapse is defined as a two-point worsening on the PGA scale. The Physician's Global Assessment of Autoinflammatory Disease Activity (PGA) is a measure to be completed by the investigator or designee. The PGA uses a 5-point rating scale: absent, minimal, mild, moderate, and severe. The investigator will select a rating based on the patient's current disease activity at the time of the visit. Lower PGA scores represent better outcomes.

  5. Total number of participants who experience re-emergence of disease symptoms after discontinuation of ATI-450 [ Time Frame: Follow-up day 1 to follow-up day 7 ]
    Re-emergence is defined as a daily Key Symptom Score (KSS) ≥ 3 points higher than baseline for at least 2 consecutive days. The KSS is derived from the patient-administered DHAF, and is the average on a 0 to 10 scale (0 = None, 10 = Very Severe) of 5 separate scales - rash, feeling of fever and chills, joint pain, eye redness and pain, and fatigue. Lower KSS scores represent better outcomes.

  6. Total number of participants with a mean KSS no more than 2 points higher than baseline for at least 6 out of 8 weeks during the treatment period [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Key Symptom Score (KSS). The KSS is derived from the patient-administered DHAF, and is the average on a 0 to 10 scale (0 = None, 10 = Very Severe) of 5 separate scales - rash, feeling of fever and chills, joint pain, eye redness and pain, and fatigue. Lower KSS scores represent better outcomes.

  7. Change from baseline in PGA [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Physician Global Assessment (PGA). The Physician's Global Assessment of Autoinflammatory Disease Activity (PGA) is a measure to be completed by the investigator or designee. The PGA uses a 5-point rating scale: absent, minimal, mild, moderate, and severe. The investigator will select a rating based on the patient's current disease activity at the time of the visit. Lower PGA scores represent better outcomes.

  8. Change from baseline in KSS [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Key Symptom Score (KSS). The KSS is derived from the patient-administered DHAF, and is the average on a 0 to 10 scale (0 = None, 10 = Very Severe) of 5 separate scales - rash, feeling of fever and chills, joint pain, eye redness and pain, and fatigue. Lower KSS scores represent better outcomes.

  9. Change from baseline in CRP [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    C-reactive protein (CRP). CRP values ≤10 mg/L are considered normal range.

  10. Change from baseline in SAA [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    serum amyloid A (SAA). SAA values ≤10 mg/L are considered normal range.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-1β [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Exploratory endpoint to assess the change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-1β ATI-450 in patients with CAPS.

  2. Change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-1α [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Exploratory endpoint to assess the change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-1α of ATI-450 in patients with CAPS.

  3. Change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-6 [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Exploratory endpoint to assess the change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-6 of ATI-450 in patients with CAPS.

  4. Change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-18 [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Exploratory endpoint to assess the change from baseline in serum cytokines IL-18 of ATI-450 in patients with CAPS.

  5. Change from baseline in serum cytokines TNF-α [ Time Frame: Baseline to week 12 ]
    Exploratory endpoint to assess the change from baseline in serum cytokines TNF-α of ATI-450 in patients with CAPS.
