Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Number of West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease (WNND) Participants Who Show Improvement in the Modified Rankin Scale (MRS) (>=1 Improvement in Score) [ Time Frame: Study Day 2, 7, 14, 28, and 120 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The MRS is a 7-point disability scale that assesses the degree of disability in subjects with neurological impairment. Possible scores range from 0 (perfect health) up to 5 (severe disability). The scale is as follows:

    • 0 = No symptoms at all
    • 1 = No significant disability despite symptoms;
    • 2 = Slight disability;
    • 3 = Moderate disability;
    • 4 = Moderately severe disability;
    • 5 = Severe disability; bedridden, incontinent and requiring constant nursing care and attention;
    • 6 = Dead

  • The Number of Participants Who Had At Least 1 Treatment-Related Adverse Event [ Time Frame: 120 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Includes adverse events considered possibly, probably, or definitely related to study drug


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • The Number of Participants With a Favorable Neurologic Outcome [ Time Frame: Study Day 2, 7, 14, 28, and 120 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    Favorable neurologic outcome responders are defined as subjects whose Modified Rankin Score is <=2. The MRS is a 7-point disability scale that assesses the degree of disability in subjects with neurological impairment. Possible scores range from 0 (perfect health) up to 5 (severe disability). The scale is as follows:

    • 0 = No symptoms at all
    • 1 = No significant disability despite symptoms;
    • 2 = Slight disability;
    • 3 = Moderate disability;
    • 4 = Moderately severe disability;
    • 5 = Severe disability; bedridden, incontinent and requiring constant nursing care and attention;
    • 6 = Dead.

  • Mean Modified Rankin Scale Scores [ Time Frame: Study Day 0, 2, 7, 14, 28, and 120 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

    The MRS is a 7-point disability scale that assesses the degree of disability in subjects with neurological impairment. Possible scores range from 0 (perfect health) up to 5 (severe disability). The scale is as follows:

    • 0 = No symptoms at all
    • 1 = No significant disability despite symptoms;
    • 2 = Slight disability;
    • 3 = Moderate disability;
    • 4 = Moderately severe disability;
    • 5 = Severe disability; bedridden, incontinent and requiring constant nursing care and attention;
    • 6 = Dead.

  • Time to a >= 1 Point Reduction in the Modified Rankin Scale Score [ Time Frame: Study Day 2, 7, 14, 28, and 120 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 13
Study Start Date: May 2009
Study Completion Date: May 2011
Primary Completion Date: February 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: MGAWN1
30 mg/kg single intravenous infusion of MGAWN1
Biological: MGAWN1
Humanized monoclonal to West Nile virus. Dose = 30 mg/kg actual body weight intravenous, one dose at Day 0.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo - Normal Saline
single intravenous infusion of saline placebo
Biological: Placebo - normal saline
Normal Saline intravenous, volume same as active comparator, one dose at Day 0

Detailed Description:

The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of MGAWN1 in subjects with West Nile Fever or a syndrome compatible with West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease (WNND) [encephalitis, meningitis, or acute flaccid paralysis]. Subjects can be enrolled based on a syndrome compatible with WNND, and do not need documented West Nile virus infection.
