Recruitment Status : Recruiting
First Posted : March 5, 2021
Last Update Posted : August 1, 2022

Adrenas Therapeutics Inc

Brief Summary:
This study is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of AAV5 based BBP-631 in adult participants diagnosed with classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Biological: AAV BBP-631 Phase 1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Participants will receive a single dose of intravenous (IV) BBP-631 and are monitored for 52 weeks post-treatment. All participants who receive AAV5 based BBP-631 will be followed for an additional 4 years for safety and efficacy in a separate long-term follow-up study. In total, all participants will be followed for at least 5 years after the date of treatment with BBP-631.

Official Title: A Phase 1/2, First-in-Human, Open-Label, Dose-Escalation Study of the Safety and Efficacy of Gene Therapy for Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia Through Administration of an Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) Serotype 5-Based Recombinant Vector Encoding the Human CYP21A2 Gene
Actual Study Start Date : July 1, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2024
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2024

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Dose Level 1
BBP-631 lowest dose, administered once, intravenously (IV)
Biological: AAV BBP-631

Experimental: Dose Level 2
BBP-631 middle dose, administered once, IV
Biological: AAV BBP-631

Experimental: Dose Level 3
BBP-631, highest dose, administered once, IV
Biological: AAV BBP-631

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with Treatment-emergent Adverse Events that Led to Study Discontinuation [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]
  2. To select the optimum dose or dose range of BBP 631 for future studies [ Time Frame: up to 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline in 17-OHP (hydroxyprogesterone) levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
  2. Change from Baseline in endogenous cortisol levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
  3. Change from Baseline in androstenedione (A4) levels [ Time Frame: Baseline, Week 52 ]
