A Phase 2 Study to Determine the Effects of BXT-51072 in Diabetic Patients Undergoing Angioplasty (PCI)

This study has been completed.

Synvista Therapeutics, Inc Identifier:
First received: April 30, 2006
Last updated: August 21, 2008
Last verified: August 2008

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and feasibility of BXT-51072 as a cardioprotective agent in diabetics undergoing elective angioplasty / percutaneous intervention (PCI), a procedure to "open" coronary arteries.

BXT-51072 belongs to a class of drugs called "glutathione peroxidase mimics." BXT-51072 works by imitating a substance produced in various tissues in the body, which prevents damage of the heart and blood vessels.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in CK-MB
  • Safety

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in troponin
  • Myocardial ischemia by 24-hour continuous 12-lead ECG

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: May 2006
Study Completion Date: August 2008
Primary Completion Date: March 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Following screening, baseline measurements and informed consent, patients will receive BXT-51072 40 mg or placebo in a 2:1 ratio, 30 minutes before their scheduled PCI and then three times per day for 2 days. There will be 5 treatment visits and 3 follow-up visits.

Blood samples will be obtained for CK-MB, troponin and routine chemistry. A 24-hour continuous electrocardiogram will be obtained following the PCI and regular electrocardiograms will be obtained during the study and follow-up period.
