A Study of Imlifidase in Patients With Guillain-Barré Syndrome

2019-05-14 19:07:23 | BioPortfolio


The study participants are patients which have been diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS) and are planned to receive treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg). IVIg is a standard of care treatment for GBS patients. The patients in this study will be treated with the study medicine imlifidase on day 1, and with IVIg on days 3-7.

The purpose of this study is to investigate the safety and effectiveness of imlifidase in patients diagnosed with GBS.


This is an open-label, single arm, multi-centre, phase II study of imlifidase in combination with standard care IVIg in patients with GBS.

The study will recruit up to 30 patients who are eligible for IVIg treatment based on current practice (i.e. GBS disability score >3 and within 10 days of onset of weakness). All patients will receive imlifidase (Day 1) prior to standard care IVIg.

Data from each patient enrolled in this study will be compared with a control group consisting of up to 4 subjects from the International Guillain-Barré Syndrome Outcome Study (IGOS) database ( identifier: NCT01582763) fulfilling a subset of the eligibility criteria in the current imlifidase GBS study protocol. Matching will be done on geographical locations, age, presence of diarrhoea, and severity of condition.

There is growing body of evidence suggesting that GBS is an antibody-mediated disorder. In addition to supportive care, IVIg and Plasma Exchange (PE) are the two main immunological treatment options aimed at attenuating the autoreactive humoral immune response. Imlifidase is an IgG degrading enzyme with strict specificity. The hypothesis is that reduction of pathological antibodies may result in aborted progression, quicker recovery and less severe disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the SEROTONIN UPTAKE INHIBITORS formerly used for depression but was withdrawn worldwide in September 1983 because of the risk of GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME associated with its use. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 29th ed, p385)

A variant of the GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME characterized by the acute onset of oculomotor dysfunction, ataxia, and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk. The ataxia is produced by peripheral sensory nerve dysfunction and not by cerebellar injury. Facial weakness and sensory loss may also occur. The process is mediated by autoantibodies directed against a component of myelin found in peripheral nerves. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1313; Neurology 1987 Sep;37(9):1493-8)

A viral disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with ZIKA VIRUS. Its mild DENGUE-like symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and ARTHRALGIA. The viral infection during pregnancy, however, may be associated with other neurological and autoimmune complications (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME; and MICROCEPHALY).

Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
