Efficacy and Safety of Risedronate (Actonel), a Third Generation Bisphosphonate in Patients With Ankylosing Spondylitis: a Phase 2 Pilot Study

2014-07-24 14:10:31 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Randomized, controlled, double-blind, multicenter phase II study comparing risedronate 35mg (ActonelR 35mg weekly tablet) versus placebo in patients with active ankylosing spondylitis (AS) treated with standard first and second-line therapies.

Primary efficacy endpoint: Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Disease Activity Index (BASDAI). The time schedule for performing the BASDAI was at screening, upon inclusion (T0), then after 3, 6 and 12 months or at the time of premature withdrawal in case of drop-out.

secondary endpoints:

- Clinical endpoints: The secondary efficacy measures were the following: Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Functional Index (BASFI) , Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI), ASAS (Assessments in Ankylosing Spondylitis) Working Group core set of domains, Spinal pain VAS, ESR, CRP and the percentage of patients achieving 20% or greater decrease in each of these parameters. These parameters were determined at T0, T3, T6, T12 or at the time of premature withdrawal in case of drop-out. The spinal pain assessed by VAS was also done at screening.

- DEXA: Dual Energy X-Ray-Absorptiometry (DEXA) measurements were performed in all patients upon inclusion (T0) and at the end of the study (T12).

- Biochemical markers: selected biochemical markers of bone metabolism were measured at T0, T3, T6 and T12 or at the time of premature withdrawal in case of drop-out using commercially available kits. Bone formation was assessed by serum bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP) and osteocalcin (OC) levels using commercially available kits. Bone resorption was assessed in serum by the C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen degradation (Crosslaps R) and urinary N-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen degradation (Osteomark R).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A chimeric monoclonal antibody to TNF ALPHA that is used in the treatment of RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.

A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Oxyphenbutazone eyedrops have been used abroad in the management of postoperative ocular inflammation, superficial eye injuries, and episcleritis. (From AMA, Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p2000) It had been used by mouth in rheumatic disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis but such use is no longer considered justified owing to the risk of severe hematological adverse effects. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p27)

A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).

A butyl-diphenyl-pyrazolidinedione that has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, and analgesic activities. It has been used in ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; and REACTIVE ARTHRITIS.

A recombinant version of soluble human TNF receptor that binds specifically to TUMOR NECROSIS FACTOR and inhibits its binding with endogenous TNF receptors. It prevents the inflammatory effect of TNF and is used to treat RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS.
