Brief Summary:
Phase 3 multicenter study to be conducted in up to 90 qualified participating sites globally to assess the efficacy and safety of Reltecimod vs placebo in patients with sepsis-associated Stage 2/3 AKI.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Acute Kidney Injury Peritonitis Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infection Drug: Reltecimod Drug: 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Phase 3 randomized, placebo controlled study assessing the efficacy (complete recovery from AKI) and safety of Reltecimod in patients with suspected or confirmed abdominal sepsis (planned or completed surgical (laparotomy or laparoscopy) or interventional radiologic procedures for control of underlying abdominal infection within 24 hours of evaluation by medical personnel) or patients with surgically confirmed necrotizing soft tissue infection (NSTI), requiring intensive care unit (ICU) or step down unit admission and in whom the diagnosis of Stage 2/3 acute kidney injury (AKI; as defined by Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) criteria) is established at initial presentation for medical evaluation or up to 48 hours from the suspected diagnosis of abdominal sepsis or from surgically confirmed diagnosis of NSTI.

Single IV administration of 0.5 mg/kg Reltecimod (at a concentration of 1 mg/mL)
Other Name: AB103

Placebo Comparator: 0.9% Sodium Chloride Injection
Single dose

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Freedom from Durable loss of estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) in Stage 2/3 Sepsis-Associated Acute Kidney Injury at Day 28 [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare the rates of freedom from durable loss of renal function (alive, free of dialysis and less than 37% loss of eGFR from patient reference eGFR (measured by MDRD formula) at Day 28 between the Reltecimod-treated patients and the placebo-treated patients

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Safety of Reltecimod [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    Tabulate number of patients with treatment emergent adverse events and serious adverse events as well as those with laboratory abnormalities. Compare rates in Reltecimod-treated patients to placebo patients.

  2. Freedom from Durable Loss of eGFR at Day 14 [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare the rates of primary endpoint (alive, free of dialysis and less than a 37% loss of eGFR at Day 14 between the Reltecimod-treated patients and the placebo-treated patients

  3. AKI-Free Days [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare AKI-free days over 14 and 28 days, respectively between Reltecimod and placebo-treated patients

  4. Time to Primary Endpoint [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare time to primary endpoint between the Reltecimod and placebo-treated patients

  5. Critical Care and Hospital Stay Parameters [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare the effect of Reltecimod vs placebo on critical care and hospital stay parameters such as ICU and ICU-free days, ventilator and ventilator-free days, renal replacement therapy days, vasopressor and vasopressor-free days and hospital stay patients

  6. Survival Status [ Time Frame: 28 Days ]
    To compare survival status at 14 and 28 between the Reltecimod and placebo-treated patients

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Has either suspected or documented diagnosis of abdominal sepsis requiring treatment with parenteral antibiotics and planned or completed surgical (laparotomy or laparoscopy) or interventional radiologic procedures within 24 hours of evaluation by medical personnel. Recommended surgical or interventional radiologic procedures be performed with 12 hours of evaluation by medical personnel.
  2. Initial diagnosis of AKI Stage 2 or 3 according to KDIGO AKI criteria established either upon presentation to medical care in those patients with suspected abdominal sepsis or in those patients in whom the initial diagnosis of AKI is established during the 48 hour period from the suspected diagnosis of abdominal sepsis.
  3. Study medication must be administered within 6 hours of confirmation of onset of Stage 2 or 3 AKI as established at the study site, under the following criteria:

    • After the decision is made by the attending surgeon at the study site for a surgical or interventional radiology procedure for the abdominal infection OR
    • After confirmed diagnosis of abdominal infection has been established by a surgical or interventional radiology procedure

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Has known prior history of CKD with a documented estimated GFR (eGFR) < 30 mL/min

  2. Patients receiving RRT for chronic kidney disease
  3. . Previously diagnosed with documented AKI in the last 30 days
  4. Documented primary glomerular disease or toxic tubulo-interstitial nephritis at the time of AKI diagnosis
