Current Secondary Outcome Measures  ICMJE
 (submitted: May 21, 2019)
  • Evaluate serum concentrations of MEDI8897 and palivizumab [ Time Frame: 360 days post dose ]
    Individual MEDI8897 and palivizumab serum concentration data will be tabulated by treatment group along with descriptive statistics. PK parameters will be estimated using non compartmental analysis, if data permit.
  • Incidence of anti-drug antibody to MEDI8897 and palivizumab in serum [ Time Frame: 360 days post dose ]
    The incidence of ADA to MEDI8897 and palivizumab will be assessed and summarized by number and percentage of subjects that are ADA positive by treatment group.
  • Assess the descriptive efficacy of MEDI8897 in reducing medically attended LRTI incidence and hospitalization due to Reverse Transcriptase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) confirmed RSV [ Time Frame: 150 days post dose ]
    Incidence of medically attended LRTI (inpatient and outpatient) due to RT-PCR-confirmed RSV through 150 days after Dose 1 for season 1 and season 2

Brief Title  ICMJE A Study to Evaluate the Safety of MEDI8897 for the Prevention of Medically Attended Respiratory Syncytial Virus(RSV) Lower Respiratory Track Infection (LRTI) in High-risk Children
Official Title  ICMJE A Phase 2/3 Randomized, Double-blind, Palivizumab-controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety of MEDI8897, a Monoclonal Antibody With an Extended Half-life Against Respiratory Syncytial Virus, in High-risk Children (MEDLEY)
Brief Summary The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of MEDI8897 compared to palivizumab when administered to preterm infants entering their first RSV season and children with chronic lung disease (CLD) and congenital heart disease (CHD) entering their first and second RSV season.
Detailed Description This study is a pivotal Phase 2/3 randomized, double-blind, palivizumab-controlled study to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), anti-drug antibody (ADA) response, and descriptive efficacy for MEDI8897 in high-risk infants eligible to receive palivizumab when entering their first or second RSV season (Season 1 or Season 2, respectively). Approximately 900 palivizumab-eligible infants entering their first RSV season will be enrolled into one of 2 cohorts: (1) preterm cohort, including approximately 600 preterm infants (≤ 35 weeks gestational age [GA]) without CLD/CHD, or (2) CLD/CHD cohort, including approximately 300 infants with CLD of prematurity or hemodynamically significant CHD. A minimum of 100 infants with hemodynamically significant CHD will be enrolled. Within each cohort, randomization will be stratified by hemisphere (northern, southern) and subject age at the time of Season 1 randomization (≤ 3 months, > 3 to ≤ 6 months, > 6 months).

Eligibility Criteria  ICMJE

Inclusion criteria

  1. For the preterm cohort (excluding subjects with CLD or hemodynamically significant CHD): preterm infants in their first year of life and born ≤ 35 weeks 0 days GA eligible to receive palivizumab in accordance with national or local guidelines, including those with:
