ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT02508896
First received: July 24, 2015
Last updated: September 9, 2016
Last verified: September 2016
  Purpose

Study AFF012 is a single blind, single-center, randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel group, phase I clinical trial of repeated administration by subcutaneous injection of a single dose of one of two different proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 targeting AFFITOPE® vaccines or Placebo. This study will assess Safety, Immunogenicity and low density lipoprotein cholesterol-lowering activity of the two vaccines.

72 healthy subjects are divided into three test groups (2 treatment groups, 1 placebo group), each consisting of 24 subjects. The subjects are randomized to receive either of two AFFITOPEs® (AT04A or AT06A, adsorbed to 1 mg aluminium oxyhydroxide) or placebo (1 mg aluminium oxyhydroxide).

The study consists of 3 parts, part A, encompassing Visit 1 to Visit 8, covering 3 priming immunizations at a dose of 15μg at days 0, 28 and 56 and the immediate observation period extending to day 140; the prolonged observation period: part B, encompassing Visit 9 and Visit 10 at days 273 and 365; and part C consisting of 7 visits (V11 to V17). Study participants having received 3 priming vaccinations and having completed part B will receive in part C one boost immunization at a dose of 75μg, which will be applied one year after the 3rd immunization (day 420). Probands will proceed directly from part A to part B and to part C. Continuation of parts B and C will be considered based on the part A results, primarily the immunological results. The following scenarios apply (provided that there is no safety issue). None of the two treatment groups exhibits a vaccine-specific antibody response over the placebo group at Visit 8 - this will lead to termination of the trial. One of the two groups fails to exhibit a vaccine-specific antibody response over the placebo group at Visit 8 - this will lead to its discontinuation; the other treatment group and the placebo group will be continued.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurence of any Serious Adverse Event (SAE) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Evaluation of SAE being unlikely, possibly, probably or definitely related to the study vaccines Occurence of any Grade 3 or higher adverse Event (AE) Occurence of solicited local AEs Occurence of solicited systemic AEs Occurence of unsolicited non-serious AEs


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Immunological activity of AFFITOPE® AT04A: Titer of vaccination-induced antibodies [ Time Frame: 21 months ]

  • Immunological activity of AFFITOPE® AT06A: Titer of vaccination-induced antibodies [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Titer of vaccination-induced antibodies directed towards peptide components of the vaccine, the carrier, and the target proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9

  • Mean Levels of Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDLc) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Mean Levels of High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDLc) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Mean Levels of Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Mean Levels of Total Cholesterol (TC) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Mean Levels of Triglycerides (TG) [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Mean Levels of PCSK9 [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
    Change from baseline

  • Correlation analysis: Relating the strength of antibody responses to Lipid lowering effects [ Time Frame: 21 months ]
