Current Primary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 19, 2019)
  • In patients with diabetes mellitus/impaired glucose tolerance (DM/IGT), the mean change in area under the curve for glucose from Week OL22 to Week RW12 as compared between relacorilant and placebo [ Time Frame: Week Open label 22 (OL22) to Week Randomized withdraw 12 (RW12) ]
  • In patients with hypertension, the proportion of patients with a loss of response with respect to hypertension from visit OL22 to RW12 [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to Week RW12 ]
    Based on 24hour ABPM defined as 1) an increase in systolic and/or diastolic blood pressure of at least 5 mmHg or 2) any increase or modification in antihypertensive medication from Week OL22 to Week RW12/Early Termination as compared between relacorilant and placebo

Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: November 19, 2019)
  • In patients with DM (HbA1c at Baseline >6.5%), the mean change from Visit OL22 to RW12 in HbA1c as compared between relacorilant and placebo. [ Time Frame: Open Label week 22 (OL22) to Randomized Withdraw week 12 (RW12) ]
  • In patients with IGT at Baseline, the mean change from Visit OL22 to RW12 in the 2 hour glucose value of the oGTT [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to week RW12 ]
  • In patients with hypertension the mean change in SBP or DBP as compared between relacorilant and placebo [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to week RW12 ]
  • The mean change in body weight, body fat measured with DXA scan and Cushing Quality-of-Life (QoL) score as compared between relacorilant and placebo [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to week RW12 ]
    The Cushing Quality of Life (QoL) patient questionnaire, which evaluates the health-related QoL in patients with Cushing syndrome (Webb et al. 2008), will be administered to all patients. It comprises 12 questions, each with 5 possible answers. The total score ranges from 12‒60. The Cushing QoL instrument addresses known problem areas associated with Cushing syndrome including trouble sleeping, wound healing/bruising, irritability/mood swings/anger, self-confidence, physical changes, ability to participate in activities, interactions with friends and family, memory issues, and future health concerns. Lower values reflect lower quality of life.
  • For patients in either subgroup (DM/IGT or hypertension) the proportion of patients with any increase or modification in diabetes or antihypertensive medication as compared between relacorilant and placebo [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to week RW12 ]
  • Proportion of patients who worsened, as assessed by the Global Clinical Response, from Week OL22 to Week RW12/ET as compared between relacorilant and placebo [ Time Frame: Week OL22 to Week RW12 ]
    Global Clinical Response will be scored in 7 categories: glucose, blood pressure, body composition, clinical appearance, strength, psychiatric health/ cognitive function, Cushing QoL score. An independent Data Review Board (DRB) will review the 7 categories of clinical parameters above to evaluate whether a patient's signs and symptoms of Cushing syndrome have changed and will rate each patient's overall response based on the totality of signs and symptoms as +1 (improved), 0 (unchanged), or −1 (worsened) at every visit after Baseline. Each patient's final score will be the median of the 3 ratings
  • Mean change in QoL, body fat composition as determined by DXA, Beck Depression inventory-II (BDI-II) and body weight from Baseline to visit OL22 or end of treatment (ET) [ Time Frame: Baseline to week OL22 or End of Treatment (ET) ]
  • In patients with IGT, the mean change in 2-hour oGTT glucose from Baseline to Visit OL22/ET [ Time Frame: Baseline to week OL22 or ET ]
  • In patients with DM (HbA1c ≥6.5% at Baseline), the mean change in HbA1c from Baseline to Visit OL22/ET [ Time Frame: Baseline to week OL22 or ET ]
  • In patients with uncontrolled hypertension the mean change in SBP or DBP from Baseline to visit OL22/ET [ Time Frame: Baseline to week OL22 or ET ]
    Blood pressure will be measured by 24 hour ABPM readings
Original Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: October 3, 2018)
  • In patients with DM/IGT, the proportion of patients who meet any of the DM/IGT response criteria at the end of the OL phase (Week OL22). [ Time Frame: Open Label Phase (Baseline to Week OL22) ]
    - The DM/IGT response criteria for the Open-Label Phase (assessed at Week OL22) are:
    • HbA1c has decreased by ≥0.5% from Baseline
    • The 2-hour oGTT glucose is normalized (<140 mg/dL) or decreased by ≥50 mg/dL from Baseline
    • Total daily insulin dose has decreased by ≥25% or daily sulfonylurea dose has decreased from Baseline by ≥50% and HbA1c is unchanged or decreased compared with Baseline
  • In patients with hypertension, the proportion of patients who meet any of the hypertension response criteria at the end of the OL phase (Week OL22) [ Time Frame: Open Label Phase (Baseline to Week OL22) ]
    • The hypertension response criteria for the Open-Label Phase (assessed at Week OL22) are:
    • ≥5 mm Hg decrease in SBP and/or DBP from Baseline without worsening of either, based on 24-hour ABPM
    • A reduction in the number or dose of BP medications, and SBP and DBP by ABPM are no worse than at Baseline.
  • The mean change from Baseline to Week OL22 in Cushing Quality-of-Life (QoL) score [ Time Frame: Open Label Phase (Baseline to Week OL22) ]
    The Cushing Quality of Life (QoL) patient questionnaire, which evaluates the health-related QoL in patients with Cushing syndrome (Webb et al. 2008), will be administered to all patients.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title  ICMJE A Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Relacorilant in Patients With Endogenous Cushing Syndrome
Official Title  ICMJE Glucocorticoid Receptor Antagonism in the Treatment of Cushing Syndrome (GRACE): A Phase 3, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Randomized-Withdrawal Study of the Efficacy and Safety of Relacorilant
Brief Summary This is a Phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized-withdrawal study to assess the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of relacorilant in patients with endogenous Cushing syndrome and concurrent type 2 diabetes mellitus/impaired glucose tolerance and/or uncontrolled hypertension
Detailed Description This Phase 3 study involves two phases, an open-label (OL) phase and a randomized-withdrawal (RW) phase. Patients will dose-escalate in 100 mg increments to a target dose of 400 mg orally once daily during the open-label phase. Patients will remain on open-label treatment until week 22 at which time they will be evaluated for the randomized-withdrawal phase based on pre-defined hyperglycemia and hypertension response criteria. Eligible patients will then be randomized to receive either relacorilant or placebo at a 1:1 ratio for 12 weeks. Patients who do not meet the criteria for randomization will end treatment and may be eligible to roll over into an extension safety study. Patients who complete the randomized-withdrawal phase of the study may also be eligible to roll over into an extension study.
