Brief Summary:

The purpose of the phase 2 portion of this study is to select a biologically-active ASP0367 dose level by pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) evaluation. The phase 2 portion of this study will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367.

The purpose of the phase 3 portion of this study is to assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement relative to placebo and will also assess the safety and tolerability of ASP0367 relative to placebo. The phase 3 portion of this study will also assess the effect of ASP0367 on functional improvement and fatigue relative to placebo and will assess the effect of ASP0367 in overall participant functioning relative to placebo.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Primary Mitochondrial Myopathy Drug: Bocidelpar Drug: Placebo Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Efficacy (i.e., functional improvement) will be assessed by a functional motor test, 6-minute walk test (6MWT). The study consists of the following portions: screening (4 weeks); phase 2 dose selection portion with 2 doses of ASP0367 versus matching placebo (2 weeks); phase 3 portion with selected, single dose treatment versus placebo (up to 52 weeks); open-label extension (OLE) (24 weeks); and follow-up (4 weeks).

During the phase 2 portion of the study, participants will be randomly placed into 1 of 3 arms (low dose ASP0367, high dose ASP0367 or placebo). Based on the PK and PD data, the relevant dose level will be selected for the phase 3 portion of the study. Participants will maintain their original dose level unless emerging safety, tolerability and/or PK data necessitates dose modification, and no new participants will be enrolled in the study until the phase 3 dose is determined.

After the phase 3 dose is selected, all participants except placebo group will switch to the selected dose level of ASP0367 for the remainder of the phase 3 portion of the study (up to a total 52 weeks including the phase 2 portion). Participants who were originally assigned to placebo will remain on placebo for up to 52 weeks. The remaining enrollment of participants will be randomized to either ASP0367 or matching placebo at a ratio of 1:1.

All participants who have completed the phase 3 portion of the study and are eligible for the OLE will be offered the opportunity to take ASP0367 for an additional 24 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phase 2 portion: Pharmacokinetics (PK) of ASP0367 in plasma: AUCtau [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    AUCtau: AUC from the time of dosing to the start of the next dosing interval at multiple dose conditions. AUCtau will be recorded from the PK plasma samples collected.

  2. Phase 2 portion: PK of ASP0367 in plasma: Cmax [ Time Frame: Day 14 ]
    Cmax: maximum concentration. Cmax will be recorded from the PK plasma samples collected.

  3. Phase 2 portion: Percent change from baseline peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) delta target gene expression levels in blood [ Time Frame: Baseline and Day 14 ]
    Whole blood cell samples will be collected to measure percent change in target gene expressions.

  4. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Safety and tolerability assessed by nature, frequency and severity of treatment emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    Treatment emergent adverse events will be coded using medical dictionary for regulatory activities (MedDRA). A TEAE is defined as an adverse event (AE) observed after starting administration of the investigational product (IP) to 28 days after last dose of IP or moving to the OLE, whichever comes first. An AE is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant, temporally associated with the use of IP, whether or not considered related to the IP. An AE can therefore be any unfavorable and unintended sign (including an abnormal laboratory finding), symptom, or disease (new or exacerbated) temporally associated with the use of IP. This includes events related to the comparator and events related to the study procedures.

  5. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Number of participants with body weight change abnormalities and/ or AEs [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant body weight changes.

  6. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Number of participants with 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities and/ or AEs [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant 12-lead ECG values.

  7. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Number of participants with laboratory value abnormalities and/ or AEs [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant laboratory values.

  8. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Number of participants with vital sign abnormalities and/ or AEs [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    Number of participants with potentially clinically significant vital sign values.

  9. Phase 2 and Phase 3 portions: Number of participants with suicidal ideation and/ or behavior as assessed Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) [ Time Frame: Through Week 52 ]
    The Columbia-Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS) is a clinician administered assessment tool that evaluates suicidal ideation and behavior. Number of participants that have an affirmative response provided to the 5 items for suicidal ideation (1. Wish to be dead, 2. Nonspecific active suicidal thoughts, 3. Active suicidal ideation with any methods (not plan) without intent to act, 4. Active suicidal ideation with some intent to act, without specific plan, 5. Active suicidal ideation with specific plan and intent) and/or to the 6 items for suicidal behavior (1. Actual attempt, 2. Interrupted attempt, 3. Aborted attempt, 4. Preparatory acts or behavior, 5. Suicidal Behavior 6. Completed suicide).

  10. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in distance walked in 6 minutes assessed in meters [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is a measurement of endurance that assesses walking distance over 6 minutes.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in time spent on the 5 Times Sit to Stand (5XSTS) test [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    Change from baseline in time spent on the 5XSTS test. The test requires participants to sit with arms folded across chest and back against the chair and stand up and sit down 5 times in a row, as quickly as he/she can.

  2. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in quality of life in neurological disorders (Neuro-QoL) Short Form Fatigue score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The Neuro-QoL Short Form Fatigue score is an 8-item self- assessment questionnaire evaluating the perception of fatigue and its impact in daily life activities. Participants have five response options for each item: 1=Never, 2=Rarely, 3=Sometimes, 4=Often, 5=Always. The questionnaire is scored by adding the response to each of the items. Higher scores indicate a greater level of fatigue.

  3. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in Modified Fatigue Impact Scale (MFIS) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    MFIS is a modified form of the Fatigue Impact Scale questionnaire specific to measuring how fatigue impacts the lives of those affected by fatigue-like symptoms. The 21 items in the scale measure three domains of fatigue including physical, cognitive and psychosocial functioning. Participants have five response options for each item: 0=Never, 1=Rarely, 2=Sometimes, 3=Often, and 4=Almost always. The scale is scored by adding the response to each of the items. Higher scores indicate a greater level of fatigue.

  4. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in Neuro-QoL Short Form Lower Extremity Function (Mobility) score [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The Neuro-QoL Short Form Lower Extremity Function (Mobility) score is an 8-item self-assessment questionnaire evaluating one's ability to carry out various activities involving the trunk region and increasing degrees of bodily movement, ambulation, balance or endurance. Participants have five response options for each item: 1=Unable to do, 2=With much difficulty, 3=With some difficulty, 4=With a little difficulty, 5=Without any difficulty. The questionnaire is scored by adding the response to each of the items. Higher scores indicate a greater level of lower extremity function (Mobility).

  5. Phase 3 portion: Score on Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
    The Patient Global Impression of Change evaluates all aspects of participant's health and assesses if there has been an improvement or decline in clinical status. Ratings range from (1) very much improved to (7) very much worse.

  6. Phase 3 portion: Change from baseline in Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGIS) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Week 52 ]
    The Patient Global Impression of Severity questionnaire assesses patient's impression of disease severity. The PGIS item asks the participant to best describe how participant's pre-defined symptom/overall status is now on a scale scored from (1) None to (4) Severe.
