A Single Arm 48-Week Follow-on Safety Study to a Core Study Comparing the Efficacy and Tolerability of Tobrineb®/Actitob®/Bramitob® Versus TOBI® (CT03Ext)
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.
This is a 48-week extension study to CMA-0631-PR-0010 Core Study. Patients who have a positive culture for P. aeruginosa at visit 4 of the first 8-week core study period and/or if deemed appropriate by the Investigators will be able to be included in the 48-week follow-on period (Extension Study) to continue the treatment only with Bramitob® (tobramycin nebuliser solution, 300 mg twice daily in 4 mL unit dose vials).
A Single Arm 48-Week Follow-on Safety Study to the Core Study (A Multicentre, Multinational, Open-Label, Randomised, Parallel Group Clinical Trial of Tobrineb®/Actitob®/Bramitob® (Tobramycin Solution for Nebulisation, 300mg Twice Daily in 4mL Unit Dose Vials) Compared to TOBI® in the Treatment of Patients With Cystic Fibrosis and Chronic Infection With Pseudomonas Aeruginosa)

to assess safety profile in terms of incidence of adverse events/adverse drug reactions, frequency of cystic fibrosis exacerbations, audiometric test, laboratory parameters (hematology and blood chemistry), vitals signs (hr and bp), physical examination. [ Time Frame: up to 48 weeks ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
to assess whether prolonged use of aerosolized tobramycin is required to sustain FEV1 increase (FEV1 expressed in liters and % predicted) [ Time Frame: up to 48 weeks ]
Categorical results of microbiological tests referred to P. aeruginosa (negativisation, persistence, superinfection, re-infection); susceptibility testing of isolated P. aeruginosa strains (MIC90 and MIC50) [ Time Frame: up to 48 weeks ]
Changes in body weight and BMI [ Time Frame: up to 48 weeks ]
to assess health related quality of life [ Time Frame: Initial visit, Week 20, Week 44 ]
