Study of Combination Treatment With IMO-2125 and Ribavirin in Naïve Hepatitis C-infected, Genotype 1 Patients

2014-08-27 03:18:51 | BioPortfolio


Phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation study with 3 dose levels of IMO-2125 in combination with standard weight based ribavirin (investigational treatment arm) or placebo in combination with ribavirin (RBV). Each cohort of 15 patients will be randomized 4:1 to receive the investigational treatment arm (12 patients) or placebo and RBV arm (3 patients).


This is a phase 1, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-escalation study with 3 dose levels of IMO-2125 in combination with standard ribavirin or placebo plus ribavirin. Each cohort will be randomized 4:1 to receive the investigational treatment arm or placebo and ribavirin. Three varying dose levels of IMO-2125 will be included. In both arms, ribavirin will be dosed based on patient weight.

Approximately 50 patients will be enrolled in France and Russia. Patients will provide informed consent prior to any screening procedures being performed. Screening will occur within 21 days prior to randomization. Enrolled patients who qualify and proceed successfully through the screening period will be randomized to receive 4 weeks of either the investigational treatment arm (IMO-2125 and ribavirin) or placebo and ribavirin, with a 4 week follow-up period.

Patients who are randomized to the investigational treatment arm will receive one of 3 dose levels of IMO 2125 SC once weekly; each patient will receive the same dose throughout the 4 weeks of treatment. In addition to IMO-2125 treatment they will also receive daily ribavirin, which will be given based on the patients weight and will be taken twice daily for a total of 4 weeks.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Oral HCV-PROTEASE INHIBITOR effective against hepatitis C virus (HCV) serine protease NS3/4A. It is used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C (Antivirals) genotype 1 infection in adults with compensated liver disease, including CIRRHOSIS.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.

A defective virus, containing particles of RNA nucleoprotein in virion-like form, present in patients with acute hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis. It requires the presence of a hepadnavirus for full replication. This is the lone species in the genus Deltavirus.

INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).

A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
