 (submitted: November 30, 2018)
Urine protein/creatinine ratio (UP/C) at Week 36 [ Time Frame: After the last patient randomized has undergone the Week 36 visit ]
The primary efficacy endpoint is the change from baseline in the urine protein/creatinine ratio (UP/C), based on a 24-hour urine sample, at Week 36.
Original Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE Same as current
Change History
Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 30, 2018)
  • Overall eGFR change from baseline [ Time Frame: Week 114 post-randomization ]
    Change in eGFR from baseline (Week 0) to 4 weeks post-cessation of randomized treatment (Week 114).
  • eGFR over a 52-week period [ Time Frame: Week 58 post-randomization ]
    The rate of change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) over a 52-week period following the initial acute effect of randomized therapy (the initial acute effect of randomized therapy is defined as the first 6 weeks of randomized treatment with study medication; thus, the analysis is from 6 weeks post-randomization to 58 weeks post-randomization).
  • eGFR over a 104-week period [ Time Frame: Week 110 post-randomization ]
    The rate of change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) over a 104-week period following initial acute effect of randomized therapy (the initial acute effect of randomized therapy is defined as the first 6 weeks of randomized treatment with study medication; thus, the analysis is from 6 weeks post-randomization to 110 weeks post-randomization).

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Study of the Effect and Safety of Sparsentan in the Treatment of Patients With IgA Nephropathy
Official Title  ICMJE A Randomized, Multicenter, Double-blind, Parallel-group, Active-control Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Sparsentan for the Treatment of Immunoglobulin A Nephropathy
Brief Summary To determine the long-term (approximately 2 years) nephroprotective potential of treatment with sparsentan as compared to an angiotensin receptor blocker in patients with immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN).
Detailed Description

This is a randomized, multicenter, double-blind, parallel-group, active-control study. Approximately 280 patients aged ≥18 years will be enrolled in the study globally. The investigational drug (sparsentan) is a dual acting angiotensin receptor blocker and endothelin receptor antagonist. The active control is irbesartan.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the potential benefit of sparsentan on kidney function by analyzing change in proteinuria (protein in urine) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) as compared to current standard treatment.

Patients enrolled in the PROTECT study (Protocol 021IGAN17001) will be those at high risk of progressing to renal failure. They will be randomly assigned n a 1:1 ratio to either sparsentan or irbesartan, as the active control (current standard treatment) at the Day 1 (Randomization) visit. Study medication (sparsentan and irbesartan) will be administered as a single oral morning dose.

The primary analysis is change in proteinuria (urine protein/creatinine ratio) from baseline at Week 36 in sparsentan-treated patients as compared to irbesartan-treated patients.

    Sparsentan will be administered daily as a 200-mg oral tablet, over-encapsulated (blinded) size 00 capsule for the first 2 weeks of the study following randomization. For patients who tolerate the initial dose of 200 mg after 2 weeks will increase their dose to 400 mg and continue treatment to Week 110.
    Intervention: Drug: sparsentan
  • Active Comparator: irbesartan
    Irbesartan will be administered daily as a 150-mg oral tablet, over-encapsulated (blinded) size 00 capsule for the first 2 weeks of the study following randomization. For patients who tolerate the initial dose of 150 mg after 2 weeks will increase their dose to 300 mg and continue treatment to Week 110.
    Intervention: Drug: irbesartan
