Brief Summary:

Approximately 63 participants will be randomized to one of three doses to receive Recifercept either

  • Low Dose
  • Medium Dose
  • High Dose

Participants will will attend the clinic at baseline and at Day 1, 4, 8, 15, 29 & then Month 2, 3 6, 9 & 12. Assessments include safety, blood sampling, physical examination, vital signs, anthropometric body measurements & patient/caregiver quality of life questionnaires

Participants will received treatment with Recifercept for 12 months. All participants who complete the study and in the opinion of the investigator, continue to have a positive risk:benefit profile, will be offered to enroll into an open-label extension (OLE) study.


Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Achondroplasia Biological: Recifercept Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a phase 2 randomized, 3 arm (3 active doses of Recifercept), parallel group dose finding study of safety, tolerability, PK and efficacy

The total number of participants is 63 in 2 age straified cohorts of 0-2 years and 6-10 years old.

The study will enroll approximately 54 children with achondroplasia aged 2-10 years (inclusive) who will be enrolled and randomized to receive one of three doses of recifercept

  • Low Dose
  • Medium Dose
  • High Dose

A total of 18 participants will be enrolled per dose 18 per dosesuch that at least 15 participants per dose are evaluable. An interim analysis is planned when at least 15 participants per dose aged ≥2 to <11 years have received 6 months of treatment with recifercept. eDMC will review safety, PK and efficacy data to confirm ongoing positive benefit:risk in participants.

Additionally, an exploratory cohort of approximately 9 children with achondroplasia, ages 0-2 years, will be enrolled later in the study (n=3 per dose).

Enrollment will follow an age and dose-staggered approach (descending age and ascending dose) with review of safety and PK data by the study team before progression to the next enrollment block If certain pre-defined safety signals occur then a meeting of the eDMC will be convened to make a decision on progression of enrollment. The PK data collected in block A will be used in the PopPK model (developed using healthy adult data) to confirm the dosing for younger children (ie, ≥2 to <6 years and 0-<2 years).

Participants will will attend the clinic at baseline and at Day 1, 4, 8, 15, 29 & then Month 2, 3 6, 9 & 12. Assessments include safety, blood sampling, physical examination, vital signs, anthropometric body measurements & patient/caregiver quality of life questionnaires

All participants will receive recifercept for 12 months. All participants who complete the study and in the opinion of the investigator, continue to have a positive risk:benefit profile, will be offered to enroll into an open-label extension (OLE) study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Treatment Emergent Treatment-Related Adverse Events (AEs) [ Time Frame: Baseline (Day 0) up to 365 days after last dose of study medication ]
    Treatment-related AE was any untoward medical occurrence attributed to study drug in a participant who received study drug. Serious adverse event (SAE) was an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly. Treatment-emergent are events between first dose of study drug and up to 365 days after last dose that were absent before treatment or that worsened relative to pretreatment state. Relatedness to Recifercept was assessed by the investigator (Yes/No). Participants with multiple occurrences of an AE within a category were counted once within the category.

  2. Height [ Time Frame: Change in height from baseline up to 365 days after last dose ]
    Increase in height growth above expected in reference population


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Change From Baseline in Vital Signs [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of treatment (Day 365) ]
    Following parameters were analyzed for examination of vital signs: systolic and diastolic blood pressure, respiratory rate, radial pulse and body temperature.

  2. Number of Participants With Change From Baseline in Physical Examination [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of treatment (Day 365) ]
    Following parameters were analyzed for examination of systems; A physical examination will include, at a minimum, assessments of the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal systems and skin.

  3. Number of Participants With Laboratory Abnormalities [ Time Frame: Baseline up to end of treatment (Day 365) ]
    Following parameters were analyzed for laboratory examination: hematology (hemoglobin, hematocrit, red blood cell count, platelet count, white blood cell count, total neutrophils, eosinophils, monocytes, basophils, lymphocytes); blood chemistry (blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, glucose, calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride, total bicarbonate, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, total bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase, uric acid albumin, total protein)

  4. Pharmacokinetics - Apparent Clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Day(s) 4, 8, 15, 29, 61, 91, 183, 365 ]
    Clearance of a drug is a measure of the rate at which a drug is metabolized or eliminated by normal biological processes. Clearance was estimated from population pharmacokinetic (PK) modeling. Drug clearance is a quantitative measure of the rate at which a drug substance is removed from the blood.
