Brief Summary:

Primary Objective:

- To evaluate the effect of BIVV020 on the durability of platelet response in participants with persistent/chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP)

Secondary Objectives:

  • To assess the safety and tolerability of BIVV020
  • To assess the pharmacokinetics of BIVV020
  • To assess the response rate of treatment with BIVV020
  • To assess the time to response
  • To assess the effect of treatment with BIVV020 on the requirement for rescue ITP therapy
  • To assess the immunogenicity of BIVV020

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase

Detailed Description:

Study duration:

  • Screening period: up to 56 days
  • Transition period between last sutimlimab dose and first dose of BIVV020 (for participants who were previously receiving sutimlimab): 14 days, included as part of the 56-day Screening period Treatment duration: Minimum 52 weeks

Visit frequency:

  • Day 1
  • Day 4
  • Weeks 1 to 6: Weekly
  • Weeks 7 to 12: Every other week
  • Weeks 13 to 24: Every 4 weeks
  • Weeks 25+: At least every 8 weeks
  • End of Study visit: 22 weeks after the last dose of BIVV020

Official Title: A Multicenter, Phase 2a, Open-label, Non-randomized Study Evaluating the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of BIVV020 in Adults With Persistent/Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)
Actual Study Start Date : February 4, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : January 2022
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2023

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: BIVV0020
All eligible participants will receive BIVV020 for at least 52 weeks.
Drug: BIVV020
Pharmaceutical form:solution for injection

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of participants with a durable platelet response [ Time Frame: Week 3 to Week 24 ]

    Durable platelet response is defined for naïve participants as the proportion of participants with a platelet count ≥50 × 109/L at ≥50% of scheduled visits, or for participants with baseline platelet count <15 × 109/L, a ≥20 × 109/L increase in platelet count from baseline at ≥50% of scheduled visits, without receiving rescue ITP therapy, as assessed from Week 3 to Week 24.

    Durable platelet response is defined for participants who previously received sutimlimab as maintenance of platelet count ≥30 × 109/L at ≥50% of scheduled visits, without receiving rescue ITP therapy, as assessed from Week 3 to Week 24.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants with treatment emergent adverse events [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
  2. Plasma concentrations of BIVV020 [ Time Frame: Week 52 ]
  3. Response rate of treatment with BIVV020 [ Time Frame: Weeks 24 and 52 ]
    Response rate at Weeks 24 and 52, defined as a platelet count ≥50 × 109/L and a greater than 2-fold increase from baseline, measured on 2 occasions at least 7 days apart, with the absence of bleeding (bleeding is defined as bleeding with a score ≥2 on the WHO bleeding scale), and the lack of combination ITP therapy during this period.

  4. Time to first platelet response [ Time Frame: Baseline to Week 52 ]
    Time from baseline to first platelet response, defined as greater than or equal to each of the following values: 50 × 109/L and 100 × 109/L (confirmed by 2 measurements at least 7 days apart)

  5. Proportion of patients who did not require rescue therapy for an acute episode of thrombocytopenia after Week 3 [ Time Frame: From Week 3 to Week 52 ]
  6. Number of participants with incidence and titer (if relevant) of anti-BIVV020 antibodies [ Time Frame: Week 24, Week 52 ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion criteria :

  • Male and female participants ≥18 years of age at the time of signing the informed consent
  • Confirmed diagnosis of primary ITP; for participants who previously received sutimlimab in study TDR16218 (NCT03275454), a response to sutimlimab must have been obtained, as defined by platelet count ≥30 × 10^9/L on 2 visits at least 7 days apart
  • For participants who have not previously received sutimlimab: persistent/chronic ITP (ITP lasting for ≥6 months) and all the following conditions:

    1. Platelet count ≤30 × 10^9/L on 2 occasions at least 5 days apart during the Screening Period;
    2. Lack of an adequate platelet count response (as defined by maintenance of sustained platelet count ≥30 × 109/L in the absence of bleeding) to at least 2 ITP treatments, 1 of which was a thrombopoietin receptor agonist. Other ITP treatments include: IVIg, anti-D immunoglobulin, corticosteroids, splenectomy, rituximab, cyclophosphamide, azathioprine, danazol, cyclosporin A, mycophenolate mofetil, or fostamatinib.
    3. If receiving weekly thrombopoietin receptor agonist dosing, the last dose must have been administered ≥7 days before the first dose of BIVV020. If receiving daily thrombopoietin receptor agonist dosing, the last dose must have been administered ≥24 hours before the first dose of BIVV020
    4. If applicable, concurrent administration of ITP medications (eg. corticosteroids, IVIg, azathioprine, danazol, cyclosporin A, mycophenolate mofetil, or thrombopoietin receptor agonists) is acceptable provided the patient has been on a stable dose for at least 1 month.
    5. If previously dosed with rituximab, the last dose of rituximab must have been administered at least 12 weeks before the first dose of BIVV020
  • Documented vaccinations against encapsulated bacterial pathogens (Neisseria meningitidis, including serogroup B where available, Haemophilus influenzae, and Streptococcus pneumoniae) within 5 years of enrollment
  • Contraceptive use for women of childbearing potential and men who are sexually active with a female partner of childbearing potential
