Study of NNZ-2566 in Patients With Traumatic Brain Injury (INTREPID2566)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
 
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00805818
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : December 10, 2008
Last Update Posted : February 5, 2018

Neuren Pharmaceuticals Limited

Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether NNZ-2566 is safe and effective in the treatment of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Brain Injuries Drug: NNZ-2566 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
Moderate to severe traumatic brain injury frequently results in persistent problems with memory, attention span, mood and more complex brain functioning such as planning and organizing. There are currently no drugs available to reduce the brain damage or the persisting symptoms that result from TBI. The longer term goal of this study is to provide physicians with a safe and effective treatment for TBI.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NNZ-2566
20 mg/kg intravenous bolus infusion over 10 minutes followed by a continuous intravenous infusion of 1 mg/kg/h (Cohort 1, n=20), 3 mg/kg/h (Cohort 2, n=20) or 6 mg/kg/h (Cohort 3, n=133) intravenous infusion for a total of 72 consecutive hours.
Drug: NNZ-2566

Solution for intravenous infusion.

20 mg/kg intravenous bolus infusion over 10 minutes followed by a continuous intravenous infusion of 1, 3, or 6 mg/kg/h for a total of 72 consecutive hours.

Other Name: Glycyl-L-2-Methylprolyl-L-Glutamic Acid

Placebo Comparator: Sodium Chloride (0.9%) for Injection
Intravenous bolus infusion over 10 minutes followed by a continuous intravenous infusion (Cohort 1, n=10), (Cohort 2, n=10) or (Cohort 3, n=67) intravenous infusion for a total of 72 consecutive hours.
Drug: Placebo
Sodium Chloride 0.9% Injection
Other Name: Sodium Chloride 0.9% Injection




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Reduced incidence, compared to placebo, of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: AEs to discharged or Day 30 post randomization, whichever occurs first, and SAEs through to 3 months (defined as 12-14 weeks), post randomization. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evidence of efficacy in modifying global outcomes by evaluating Glasgow Outcome Scale - Extended (GOS-E) and activities of daily living (Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory - 4th Edition (MPAI-4)) [ Time Frame: 1 month (defined as 4-6 weeks) and 3 months (defined as 12-14 weeks), post randomization. ]
  2. Improvement in cognitive and neuropsychological functioning. [ Time Frame: 1 month (defined as 4-6 weeks) and at 3 months (defined as 12-14 weeks), post randomization. ]
  3. Modification of the acute physiological processes in TBI by evaluating electroencephalographic (EEG) determinants in patients with moderate to severe TBI (defined as GCS 4-12), and biomarker levels. [ Time Frame: Baseline through to 72 hours post-start of infusion. ]
  4. Blood pharmacokinetics (PK) of an intravenous (i.v) dose of NNZ-2566 when administered as a 10-minute infusion immediately followed by a 72-hour infusion. [ Time Frame: Start of infusion through to 12 hours post infusion. ]

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 70 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Male
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Non-penetrating TBI.
  • Male.
  • Age 18-70 years.
  • Admission to hospital.
  • Post resuscitation GCS 4-12.
  • Have at least one reactive pupil.
  • Randomization within 7 hours of injury with the ability to receive investigational product within 8 hours of injury.
  • Hemodynamically stable after resuscitation (systolic blood pressure (SBP) >100 mm Hg).
  • Willing to undergo all neuropsychological and activities of daily living (ADL) testing (i.e. understand English, able to read, write, have sufficient motor dexterity and, be available for follow-up visits at 4-6 weeks and 12-14 weeks post injury).

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Penetrating brain injury.
  • Spinal cord injury.
  • Presence or known history of prior cerebral injury requiring hospitalization that would, in the opinion of the Investigator, interfere with or bias the assessment of efficacy.
  • Non-traumatic brain injury.
  • Known history of any medical or psychiatric disorder, or any severe concomitant disease, that in the opinion of the Investigator would interfere with or bias the assessment of efficacy. This includes the following: schizophrenia; bipolar disorder; major depressive disorder; post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD); generalized anxiety disorder; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's disease, vascular dementia, Diffuse Lewy Body Disease); stroke; brain tumor; multiple sclerosis (MS); seizure disorders; chronic pain disorder; alcoholism or substance abuse.
  • Significant non-central nervous system (CNS) injuries sustained at the time of the TBI that in the opinion of the Investigator would interfere with or bias the assessment of efficacy.
  • Weight >150 kg.
  • Participation in another clinical trial within the previous 4 weeks.
  • Clinical state requiring greater than 6 L colloid or crystalloid fluid resuscitation prior to randomization.
  • Inability to obtain informed consent from legally acceptable representative.
  • Prior enrollment in this study.
  • QTc Exclusions. The study will use the exclusion criteria as defined in ICH Guideline E14 to exclude patients with a risk of QT/QTc prolongation, as follows:

    • A marked baseline prolongation of corrected QT/QTc interval >450 ms.
    • History of risk factors for torsade de pointes (e.g. heart failure, hypokalemia (serum potassium at screening (<3.0 mmol/L)or family history of long QT syndrome).
