A Phase 1-2 Study of PRT-201 Administered in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Patients

This study has been completed.

PRT-201 is a protein that causes long lasting dilation of blood vessels when applied to the outside surface of the blood vessel. The purpose of this study is to determine if PRT-201, when applied to a limited segment of blood vessel immediately after surgery to create an arteriovenous fistula (AVF), is safe, dilates the blood vessel, and increases blood flow through the AVF.

Condition Intervention Phase
Chronic Kidney Disease Drug: PRT-201 Phase 1 Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase 1-2, Multi-Center, Dose Escalation Study of a Single Dose of PRT-201 Administered Immediately After Arteriovenous Fistula Creation in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

Further study details as provided by Proteon Therapeutics:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the safety of a single topical dose of PRT-201. To assess the effect on the diameter of and blood flow through the AVF outflow vein. [ Time Frame: 2 & 6 weeks after AVF creation ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The proportion of patients with AVF patency, AVF maturation, and AVF use for hemodialysis. [ Time Frame: 3, 6, 9, and 12 months ]

Enrollment: 66
