Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability of multiple doses of subcutaneous NT100 vs placebo following in vitro fertilization (IVF) in women with a history of repeated IVF failures.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Repeated IVF Failure Drug: NT100 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

NT-03 will be a randomized, double blind, multi-center, placebo controlled study of multiple doses of subcutaneous NT100 following IVF in women with a history of repeated IVF failures. Approximately 150 subjects will be randomized in a 1:1:1 ratio to receive subcutaneous NT100 low dose, NT100 high dose, or placebo, qd for up to 4 weeks.

Screening will include a standard IVF stimulation protocol, followed by fertilization and culture of embryos. If the subject remains eligible, she will be randomized to receive study drug. All subjects will be followed for 4 weeks after the last dose of study drug. At Week 10 of gestation, subjects who are pregnant will roll over into a follow-up study (NT-04) to assess subsequent pregnancy, delivery, and neonatal outcomes.

  2. Ongoing clinical pregnancy rate [ Time Frame: Weeks 6 and 10 of gestation ]
  3. Implantation rate following embryo transfer [ Time Frame: Week 8 of gestation ]
  4. Number of subjects with adverse events and serious adverse events [ Time Frame: through 4 weeks after last dose of study drug (up to Week 10 of gestation) ]
  5. Changes in clinical laboratory parameters following study drug exposure [ Time Frame: through 4 weeks after the last dose of study drug (up to Week 10 of gestation) ]
  6. Moderate to severe ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) rate [ Time Frame: through Week 10 of gestation ]
