Brief Summary:
This study aims to analyze the efficacy and safety of passive immunotherapy by administering an equine hyperimmune serum (INM005) against the SARS-CoV2 RBD to Covid19 patients. Improvement of the clinical course 28 days after the start of treatment will be evaluated.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Covid19 Drug: INM005 Drug: Placebo Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:
The pandemic caused by the new coronavirus has generated a situation unprecedented in recent history, with several million infected and hundreds of thousands of deaths. This disease is easily transmissible by air. Although a high percentage of cases present mild clinical presentation, approximately 15% of patients present moderate to severe cases and 5% require critical care, with respiratory assistance and a high risk of mortality. No effective therapies for the treatment or prevention of SARS.CoV2 have been identified yet. Preliminary evidence indicates that passive immunotherapy with convalescent plasma could alter the clinical course of this infection in a favorable manner. This strategy, even if confirmed as successful, requires voluntary donation by patients who have recovered, not all of whom are eligible as donors, since the antibody response varies in magnitude in different patients. This adaptive stage II/III study aims to analyze the efficacy and safety of passive immunotherapy by administering a purified Fab fraction of equine hyperimmune serum (INM005) generated from antigenic stimulation with the SARS-CoV2 RBD protein, with the objective of neutralizing the interaction of SARS-CoV-2 with its cellular receptor, thus preventing the multiplication of the virus. The safety of this type of equine hyperimmune sera has already been demonstrated in previous and ongoing protocols with a biologically equivalent product against the E. Coli shiga toxin to treat patients with Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (CT-INM004-01 and CT-INM004-02). In the present study, eligible patients will with moderate to severe symptoms of COVID-19 that require hospitalization will receive two 4 mg/kg doses of INM005, two days apart, with the aim of improving the clinical course of COVID-19 28 days after the start of treatment with the study drug.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 242 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Sequential Assignment
Intervention Model Description: This study will be an adaptive phase 2/3 investigation. First, 12 subjects will be randomly assigned to receive 1 of the 2 treatment regimens (study drug or placebo) in a 1:1 ratio. After the first 6 subjects have been enrolled and have completed 24 hours post treatment of 2nd dose, the IDMC will review the safety data and will inform whether to continue with staggered enrollment. Randomization ratio for subjects in the following stage will be 1:1. The independent data monitoring committee (IDMC) will review safety data after 12, 24, 48 and 96 patients have been enrolled in each arm. The study will then enroll a total of 121 patients in each arm. An interim analysis will be performed after 80% of recruitment has been reached (n=194). The IDMC will analyze the rate of events in the group under "standard of care".
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Masking Description: A Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, sealed-envelope based. Access to unblinded interim results will be limited to the DMC and unblinded statistician
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Stage 2/3, Adaptive, Randomized, Controlled, Double-blind Study to Investigate the Pharmacokinetics, Efficacy and Safety of the Hyperimmune Equine Serum (INM005) in Adult Patients With Moderate to Severe Confirmed SARS-CoV2 Disease.
Actual Study Start Date : July 27, 2020
Actual Primary Completion Date : November 23, 2020
Actual Study Completion Date : December 30, 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Active
Subjects will receive a 1st intravenous dose of 4 mg/kg INM005 (Anti-SARS-CoV-2 hyperimmune equine immunoglobulin F[ab']2 fragments) and a 2nd intravenous dose of 4 mg/kg of INM005. Each dose will be separated by 48 h (± 2 h).
Drug: INM005
The IMP dose to be studied will be 4 mg of protein/kg of subject's weight. The IMP will be added to the 100 mL infusion bag of saline solution. Doses will be administered as an infusion at 2.0 mL/min over 50 min with an interval of 48 h between doses.

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Subjects will receive a 1st intravenous dose of Placebo and a 2nd intravenous dose of Placebo. Each dose will be separated by 48 h (± 2 h).
Drug: Placebo
Placebo substance will be added to the 100 mL infusion bag of saline solution. Doses will be administered as an infusion at 2.0 mL/min over 50 min with an interval of 48 h between doses.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clinical changes in COVID-19 symptoms [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    The primary endpoint will be the proportion of patients who show a change in symptoms 28 days after the administration of the first dose. A responding subject is defined as a subject with improvement in at least 2 categories on the 8-point World Health Organization (WHO) ordinal scale of clinical status or a subject who is discharged.


Secondary Outcome Measures :

  2. Time to progression of disease [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]

    Time to achieve a change in at least 2 categories on the 8-point WHO ordinal scale of clinical status.

    Time to discharge (days). Time to intensive care unit (ICU) discharge (days).

  4. Discharge [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]
    Proportion of patients discharged at 28 days

  5. Intensive care unit (ICU) hospitalization [ Time Frame: up to 4 weeks ]
