Brief Summary:
This is a Phase 2, prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm study of the Human Acellular Vessel (HAV).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Renal Failure End Stage Renal Disease Vascular Access Hemodialysis Biological: HAV Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 2, prospective, multicenter, open-label, single-arm study. Subjects who sign informed consent would undergo study-specific screening assessments within 45 days from the day of informed consent.

Eligible study subjects will receive a HAV and will be followed to 12 months post-implantation at routine study visits regardless of patency status. After 12 months, subjects with a patent HAV will be followed (while the HAV remains patent) for up to 3 years (36 months) post implantation at study visits every 6 months.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: HAV
The HAV is a tissue-engineered vascular conduit (6mm diameter) for hemodialysis access in patients with end-stage renal disease. HAV for this study will be manufactured using the commercial manufacturing system.It will be implanted in the forearm or upper arm using standard vascular surgical techniques. All subjects will be required to start taking daily aspirin (75 or 325 mg) on Day 1 after surgical implantation of HAV unless they are already taking another antiplatelet agent. If low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) is administered post-operatively, aspirin or other antiplatelet agents should be initiated after stopping LMWH. Subjects who are known to be aspirin-sensitive should take another antiplatelet agent at the discretion of the Principal Investigator.
Biological: HAV
Surgical implantation of the HAV and subsequent use of the implanted vascular conduit for hemodialysis vascular access.




Primary Outcome Measures :

  2. Incidence rate of baseline change of panel reactive antibody (PRA) value [ Time Frame: 2 months post implantation ]
    Assess changes in the PRA response over the 2 months after graft implantation

  3. Incidence rate of baseline change of anti-HAV IgG value [ Time Frame: 2 months post implantation ]
    Determine whether IgG antibodies to the extracellular matrix material are formed in response to implantation of the HAV

  5. Proportion of subjects with primary patency, primary assisted patency and secondary patency [ Time Frame: 3 months post-implantation ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Cumulative number of subjects with adverse events indicating possible mechanical failure or weakness of the HAV [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months post-implantation ]
    Frequency and severity of AEs of each patient will be documented

  2. Incidence rate of baseline change of panel reactive antibody (PRA) value [ Time Frame: 12 months post-implantation ]
    Assess changes in the PRA response over the 12 months after graft implantation

  3. Incidence rate of baseline change of anti-HAV IgG value [ Time Frame: 12 months post-implantation ]
    Determine whether IgG antibodies to the extracellular matrix material are formed in response to implantation of the HAV

  4. Incidence rate of all AEs/SAEs [ Time Frame: Up to 12 months post-implantation ]
    Frequency and severity of AEs/SAE of each patient will be documented

  5. Incidence rate of SAEs related to the HAV and adverse events of special interest [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months post-implantation ]
    Frequency and severity of SAE/AESI of each patient will be documented

  6. Proportion of subjects with primary patency, primary assisted patency and secondary patency [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months post-implantation ]
  7. Histopathological remodeling of any study conduit [ Time Frame: Up to 36 months post-implantation ]
    Microscopic examination of explanted conduit for cellular infiltration and extracellular remodeling processes, including neo-synthesis and reorganization of ECM components (descriptive summaries only)

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Subjects with ESRD who are not, or who are no longer candidates for creation of an autologous AV fistula and therefore need placement of an AV graft in the arm (upper or forearm) for hemodialysis therapy.
  2. Already established on hemodialysis
  3. At least 18 years of age at Screening.
  4. Suitable arterial and venous anatomy for implantation of straight or looped conduits in either the forearm or upper arm (not crossing the elbow).
  5. Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL and platelet count ≥ 100,000 cells/mm3 prior to Day 0 (within 45 days).
  6. Other hematological and biochemical parameters within a range consistent with ESRD prior to Day 0 (within 45 days).
  7. Normal clotting (international normalized ration [INR] ≤ 1.5 or prothrombin time ≤ 18 sec unless the patient is taking an anticoagulant for an approved indication at the time of HAV implantation.
  8. Female subjects must be either:

    1. Of non-childbearing potential, which is defined as post-menopausal (at least 1 year without menses prior to Screening) or documented surgically sterile or post hysterectomy (at least 1 month prior to Screening)
    2. Or, of childbearing potential, in which case:

    i. Must have a negative serum or urine pregnancy test at Screening, and ii. Must agree to use at least one form of the following birth control methods for the duration of the study:

    1. a biochemical diagnosis (e.g. Factor V Leiden, Protein C deficiency, etc.) - OR -
    2. a clinical history of thrombophilia as diagnosed by 2 or more spontaneous intravascular thrombotic events (e.g deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, etc.) within the 5 previous years.

    2. High dose glucocorticoid therapy for treatment of autoimmune flare, or other inflammatory diseases is excluded.
    3. Patients using glucocorticoids for immunosuppression post-transplant to prevent against transplanted allograft rejection in the period post allograft failure are excluded.
    4. The following examples of immunosuppressive agents (or the like) are exclusionary for enrollment in this clinical trial:
