Dermatomyositis and Polymyositis Registry (ADAPT)

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01637064
First received: July 6, 2012
Last updated: October 29, 2014
Last verified: October 2014
  Purpose

By creating a registry, physicians will have the opportunity to understand the clinical outcomes of Myositis patients treated with Acthar. Despite the availability of clinical exams, muscle biopsies, and other testing, it is surmised that there may be a more important classification of myositis that physicians are not diagnosing which could possibly lead to improper treatment due to inaccurate diagnosis. There may be several types of immune and inflammatory myositis (IIM) that do not fit well into the typical sub classifications of myositis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determining if Acthar treatment improves disease progression [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To create and maintain a registry linking clinical information, dosing and clinical response in patients with refractory myositis and to determine if Acthar treatment improves disease progression


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Subgroups may predict response to Acthar therapy [ Time Frame: 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    To determine if there are different subgroups that can be defined myopathologically that may predict response to Acthar therapy.


Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained

This is a retrospective and prospective study


Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: April 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Acthar
    Physicians will prescribe Acthar at their own discretion; however the recommended dose is 80 units subcutaneously twice a week.
    Other Name: ACTH
Detailed Description:

Retrospective and prospective data will be collected from physicians who have prescribed Acthar to myositis patients to determine what specific characteristics each patient has based on biopsy analysis, laboratory results, and clinical exams. Through biopsy analysis, subcategories of IIM will be determined and could illustrate which of these IIMs may be more responsive to Acthar therapy.
