NEURO-TTRansform: A Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of AKCEA-TTR-LRx in Participants With Hereditary Transthyretin-Mediated Amyloid Polyneuropathy

2019-10-28 13:57:10 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate the efficacy and safety of AKCEA-TTR-LRx after administration for 65 weeks to patients with hereditary transthyretin-mediated amyloid polyneuropathy (hATTR-PN), as compared to the NEURO-TTR trial (NCT01737398).


This is a multicenter, open-label study in up to 140 participants, who will be randomized to receive subcutaneous (SC) injections of either AKCEA-TTR-LRx once every 4 weeks or inotersen once a week. Participants will also receive daily supplemental doses of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. Participants included in the inotersen reference arm will be crossed over to AKCEA-TTR-LRx at Week 37 after completing the Week 35 assessments.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Inherited disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. The different clinical types based on symptoms correspond to the presence of a variety of mutations in several different proteins including transthyretin (PREALBUMIN); APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I; and GELSOLIN.

A type of extracellularly deposited substance composed of an amyloid protein and additional components including HEPARAN SULFATE PROTEOGLYCAN; LAMININ; COLLAGEN TYPE IV; SERUM AMYLOID P-COMPONENT; and APOLIPOPROTEINS E which together form characteristic amyloid fibrils. The core of amyloid fibrils is formed by the stacking of overlapping beta-pleated sheet domains of the amyloid protein. There are many different amyloid proteins that have been found forming the core of the fibrils in vivo. However, amyloid can be formed from any protein that exposes beta-pleated strand conformations during unfolding or refolding. A common characteristic of amyloid is the ability to bind such dyes as CONGO RED and thioflavine.

Proteins that form the core of amyloid fibrils. For example, the core of amyloid A is formed from amyloid A protein, also known as serum amyloid A protein or SAA protein.

Peptides generated from AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES PRECURSOR. An amyloid fibrillar form of these peptides is the major component of amyloid plaques found in individuals with Alzheimer's disease and in aged individuals with trisomy 21 (DOWN SYNDROME). The peptide is found predominantly in the nervous system, but there have been reports of its presence in non-neural tissue.

A pancreatic beta-cell hormone that is co-secreted with INSULIN. It displays an anorectic effect on nutrient metabolism by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, gastric emptying and postprandial GLUCAGON secretion. Islet amyloid polypeptide can fold into AMYLOID FIBRILS that have been found as a major constituent of pancreatic AMYLOID DEPOSITS.
