  Purpose

The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of C1-esterase inhibitor in preventing hereditary angioedema attacks when it is administered under the skin of subjects with hereditary angioedema. The safety of C1-esterase inhibitor will also be assessed. Each subject will enter a run-in period of up to 8-weeks. Subjects who complete the run-in period and who are eligible will then enter the treatment phase which comprises two sequential treatment periods. In the treatment phase, subjects will be randomized to one of four arms consisting of treatment with low- or higher-volume C1-esterase inhibitor in one treatment period and treatment with low- or higher-volume placebo in the other treatment period. The study will measure the number of hereditary angioedema attacks that subjects experience while receiving each treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The time-normalized number of hereditary angioedema attacks [ Time Frame: During the treatment phase, up to 32 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Proportion of subjects with a 50% reduction in the number of hereditary angioedema attacks [ Time Frame: During the treatment phase, up to 32 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The percentage of subjects with a 50% relative reduction in the time-normalized number of hereditary angioedema attacks during treatment with C1-esterase inhibitor compared with placebo

  • Number of uses of rescue medication [ Time Frame: During the treatment phase, up to 32 weeks. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The time-normalized number of uses of rescue medication during treatment with C1-esterase inhibitor or placebo

  • Proportion of subjects with any adverse events [ Time Frame: During or within 24 hours of C1-esterase or placebo administration. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The percentage of subjects with any adverse events that begin within 24 hours of administration of C1-esterase inhibitor or placebo

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

Run-In Period Inclusion Criteria:

  • Males or females aged 12 years or older.
  • A clinical diagnosis of hereditary angioedema type I or II.
  • Hereditary angioedema attacks over a consecutive 2-month period that required acute treatment, medical attention, or caused significant functional impairment.

Eligibility Criteria for Entering Treatment Period 1:

  • Laboratory confirmation of type I or type II hereditary angioedema, including C1-esterase inhibitor functional activity less than 50% AND C4 antigen level below the laboratory reference range.
  • No clinically significant abnormalities as assessed using laboratory parameters.
  • During participation in the run-in period, subjects must have experienced hereditary angioedema attacks that required acute treatment, required medical attention, or caused significant functional impairment.

Exclusion Criteria:

Run-In Period Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of clinical significant arterial or venous thrombosis, or current history of a clinically significant prothrombotic risk.
  • Incurable malignancies at screening.
  • Any clinical condition that will interfere with the evaluation of C1-esterase inhibitor therapy.
  • Clinically significant history of poor response to C1-esterase therapy for the management of hereditary angioedema.
  • Receiving therapy prohibited by the protocol, including medications for hereditary angioedema prophylaxis.
  • Female subjects who started taking or changed dose of any hormonal contraceptive regimen or hormone replacement therapy (i.e., estrogen/progesterone-containing products) within 3 months prior to the screening visit.
