Brief Summary:
SPIMD-301 is a 48-week, randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial to assess efficacy and safety of single daily subcutaneous (SC) administration of elamipretide as a treatment for subjects with primary mitochondrial myopathy associated with nuclear DNA mutations (nPMD).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Mitochondrial Myopathies Mitochondrial Pathology Mitochondrial DNA Mutation Mitochondrial Diseases Mitochondrial DNA Deletion Mitochondrial DNA Depletion Mitochondrial Metabolism Defect Mitochondrial Complex I Deficiency Drug: Elamipretide Drug: Placebo Phase 3

Detailed Description:
This 48-week randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, placebo-controlled trial will enroll approximately 130 subjects, consisting of 90 subjects who have nPMD associated with pathogenic mutations of the mitochondrial replisome("replisome-related mutations") for primary analysis and an additional subset of up to 40 subjects who have nPMD associated with other non-replisome-related pathogenic mutations specific to the nuclear DNA. Efficacy and safety of single daily SC doses of elamipretide administered as a treatment for subjects who have primary mitochondrial myopathy associated with nPMD will be determined. Subjects will be randomized 1:1 to 60mg Elamipretide or matching placebo groups.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 130 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description:

In this 48-week trial, subjects will be randomized (in a ratio of 1:1) to one of two groups: single daily subcutaneous doses of 60mg elamipretide, or, matching placebo, using a central randomization stratified by whether or not subjects have nPMD associated with replisome-related mutations.

130 subjects, consisting of 90 subjects with nPMD associated mutations of the mitochondrial replisome for primary analysis and an additional subset of up to 40 subjects who have nPMD associated with other non-replisome-related pathogenic mutations specific to nuclear DNA. Three periods: Screening (up to 28 days), Treatment (48 Weeks) and Follow-Up Period (4 weeks).

Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: Trial personnel and subjects will be blinded to treatment until the database is locked. The Investigator will contact the Sponsor prior to unblinding any subject's treatment sequence unless in the instance of a medical emergency.

Other Name: MTP-131

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
0.75 mL of 80mg/mL solution of matching placebo for a single daily SC dose of 60mg
Drug: Placebo
Placebo administered as once daily 0.75 mL subcutaneous injections for 48 weeks




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Six-minute walk test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 52 (End of Trial Visit) ]
    Change from Baseline in Distance Walked (in meters) on the Six-Minute Walk Test by Visit


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 5 times sit-to-stand test (5XSST) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 52 (End of Trial Visit) ]
    Change from Baseline in Total time (in seconds) to complete the 5XSST. Participant is directed to stand up straight as quickly as possible 5 times, without stopping in between, keeping arms folded across the chest. An average time is calculated.

  2. Triple Timed up-and-go test (3TUG) [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48, 52 (End of Trial Visit) ]
    Change from Baseline in Total time (in seconds) to complete the 3TUG. Participant is directed to stand up from chair, walk at normal pace to the line on the floor 3 meters away, turn, walk back to the chair at normal pace, sit down again; activity is timed, in seconds. Activity is repeated 3 times consecutively without rest and an average time is calculated.

  3. Patient Global Impression of Severity (PGI-S) Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline, Weeks 12, 24, 36, 48 ]
    Change from Baseline for PGI of Severity (PGI-S) Scale. Patient-reported current health status by week and at end of treatment. PGI-S Scale is a categorical scale and asks the participant to "rate the severity of your muscle weakness symptoms today" as one of the following categories: None, Mild, Moderate, Severe, or Very Severe. None means better health status, and best outcome, Very severe means worse health status and worse outcome.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

A subject must meet all of the following inclusion criteria at the Screening and Baseline Visit (unless otherwise specified) to be eligible for inclusion in the SPIMD-301 trial:

  1. Willing and able to provide a signed informed consent form (ICF) prior to participation in any trial-related procedures.
  2. Agrees and is able to adhere to the trial requirements for the length of the trial, including administration of assigned treatment.
  3. Is ≥18 years and ≤ 70 years of age at the time of screening.
  4. Diagnosed with nPMD with a predominant clinical manifestation of myopathy, which must include progressive external ophthalmoplegia (PEO) and exercise intolerance and/or skeletal muscle weakness, with genetic confirmation of either:

    1. Nuclear DNA mutation of the mitochondrial replisome (replisome-related mutations), which include the following genes:

      • POLG 1/2
      • TWINKLE (C10ORF2)
      • TYMP
      • DGUOK
      • TK2

      • ANT1 (SLC25A4)
      • SUCLG1
