Last verified: September 2012
Palomid 529 is a dual TORC1/2 inhibitor of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway having broad activity in angiogenesis and cellular proliferation. Palomid 529 will be examined to determine if the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of single ascending doses when administered intravitreally or subconjunctivally.

Condition Intervention Phase
Age-Related Macular Degeneration Drug: Palomid 529 Phase 1

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase I Open-Label Study to Investigate the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetic Profile of Single Intravitreal and Subconjunctival Doses of Palomid 529 in Patients With Advanced Neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Safety-Review AEs, concomitant meds-Vitals, HR, systolic/diastolic BP, temperature, weight-ECG changes; Physical exam-Laboratory parameters-Ophthalmic exam-visual acuity, IOP, slit lamp fundus exam, fundus photography, fluorescein angiography, OCT [ Time Frame: 43 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy-Mean change in visual acuity by ETDRS testing-Decreased leakage and/or size on FA, decreased retinal thickness in OCT-Decreased fibrosis if detectable based on fundus examination, photography, angiography and OCT [ Time Frame: 43 days ]

Enrollment: 13
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2011
Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Palomid 529
    comparison of different dosages of drug
    Other Name: P529

Ages Eligible for Study:   50 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Best corrected visual acuity in the study eye between 20/100 and 20/800 (between 53 and 4 ETDRS letters read), and better or equal to 20/200 (minimum of 34 letters read) in the fellow eye.
  • Subfoveal choroidal neovascularization (CNV) due to AMD
  • Total area of the lesion (including blood, neovascularization and scar/atrophy) must be < 12 DA.
  • Only 1 eye will be treated in the study. If both eyes are eligible, the investigator will select the eye with the most active CNV
  • Clear ocular media and adequate pupillary dilatation to permit good stereo fundus photography for screening
  • Intraocular pressure of 21 mm Hg or less
  • Retinal thickness ≥ 250 μm by OCT, with presence of intraretinal or subretinal fluid

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Any retinovascular disease or retinal degeneration other than AMD
  • Serous pigment epithelial detachment without the presence of neovascularization
  • Previous posterior vitrectomy or retinal surgery
  • Any periocular infection in the past 4 weeks
  • Concomitant therapy with anti-VEGF therapies, e.g. Avastin, Lucentis or Macugen, or previous use of these agents within 60 days of screening
  • Concomitant therapy with intravenous or intravitreous corticosteroids or use within 90 days of screening
  • Significant media opacities, including cataract, which might interfere with visual acuity, assessment of toxicity, or fundus photography
  • Cataract surgery in the study eye within 3 months of screening
  • Intraocular surgery in the study eye within 3 months of screening
  • Presence of ocular infection in the study eye
  • Presence of severe myopia (-8 diopters or greater) in the study eye
