Efficacy and Safety of AM-111 as Acute Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss Treatment

2016-06-22 19:38:22 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of the trial is the confirmation of the efficacy of AM-111 in the recovery of severe to profound idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL).


This is a Phase III, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group, multi-center, efficacy and safety trial of AM-111 in the treatment of subjects suffering from severe to profound idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss.

The active pharmaceutical ingredient of AM-111 is a JNK inhibitor (D-JNKI-1), a synthetic peptide consisting of 31 D-amino acids, which acts as a c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) ligand.

The study consists of one treatment visit and a follow-up period until day 91.

Study participants will receive, after topical anesthesia of the tympanic membrane, AM-111 0.4 mg/mL or 0.8 mg/mL or placebo, administered into the affected ear. Following the administration, subjects will rest in a supine or reclined position for 30 minutes. Study participants will have the option for a course of oral corticosteroids.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Sensorineural hearing loss which develops suddenly over a period of hours or a few days. It varies in severity from mild to total deafness. Sudden deafness can be due to head trauma, vascular diseases, infections, or can appear without obvious cause or warning.

Hearing loss due to damage or impairment of both the conductive elements (HEARING LOSS, CONDUCTIVE) and the sensorineural elements (HEARING LOSS, SENSORINEURAL) of the ear.

Hearing loss resulting from damage to the COCHLEA and the sensorineural elements which lie internally beyond the oval and round windows. These elements include the AUDITORY NERVE and its connections in the BRAINSTEM.

Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.

Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
