Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Clinical Activity Study in VLBW Neonates of BSYX-A110
Phase II Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo Controlled, Safety, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics, and Clinical Activity Study in VLBW Neonates of BSYX-A110, for the Prevention of Staphylococcal Infection
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety (including tolerability), pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and clinical activity of BSYX-A110 administered in a 3-dose regimen on Study Days 0, 7, and 14.
This Phase II study will be a randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study of BSYX-A110 in very low birth weight neonates. A total of 80 infants will be dosed in this study. Participants will receive either BSYX-A110 or placebo, at 60 mg/kg or 90 mg/kg. The Study Drug will be administered at 48-120 hours of life, 7 days after the initial dose, and 14 days after the initial dose for all dose groups.

Exclusion Criteria:

Patients may have none of the following at the first dose:

  1. Survival not expected for at least 1 week after infusion
  2. Clinically overt systemic infection, as determined by history, physical examination, and positive culture from a normally sterile site. (Infuse only when infant clinically stable and cultures negative for 48 hours. If being evaluated for sepsis, decision to infuse may be deferred as allowed by protocol infusion window. Infusions outside of protocol window must be approved by Sponsor.)

  4. Known or suspected hepatic or renal insufficiency
  5. Clinically uncontrolled seizures
  6. Immunodeficiency other than due to prematurity
  7. A history of standard immune globulin administration prior to first study drug infusion (excluding Hepatitis B Immune Globulin, HBIG)
  8. Any history, in the infant subject or its mother, of a hypersensitivity or severe vasomotor reaction to immunoglobulin G, or blood products
  9. Currently receiving, recently received, or planned to receive other investigational agents that could interfere with conduct or results of this study; including enrollment in another investigational study for a product under an IRB-approved protocol
  10. Expectation that the patient will not be able to be followed for the duration of the study
