Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label

Further study details as provided by Pari Pharma GmbH:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Long-term safety of L-CsA in prevention of bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome (BOS) [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Safety will be assesses by the numbers of treatment Emergent Adverse Events (AEs) and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) and overall rate of mortality.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Long-term efficacy outcome over a maximum of three years of patients previously enrolled in phase II/III L-CsA clinical trial 12011.201 [ Time Frame: 3 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Efficacy will be assessed mainly for the following efficacy endpoints:

    • BOS-free survival
    • Incidence of BOS
    • Pulmonary function

Enrollment: 14
Study Start Date: February 2012
Study Completion Date: December 2014
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: L-CsA
Twice daily inhalation of L-CsA
Drug: Inhalation
Twice daily inhalation for a maximum of three years.
Other Name: aerosolized liposomal CsA

Detailed Description:

This is an uncontrolled extension study open only to patients who completed the Phase II/III core study 12011.201 and volunteered to continue or to cross-over to L-CsA inhalation therapy.

Determination of long-term safety and efficacy outcome over a maximum of three years will be assessed.
