Brief Summary:

The purpose of this study is to to establish proof-of-concept for efficacy of iron isomaltoside 1000 in subjects with Restless Legs Syndrome.

The study is a randomised, comparative, double-blind study with a 3 months extension. Subjects with restless leg syndrome (RLS) will be randomised 2:1 to one of the following treat-ment groups:

  • Group A (42 subjects): 1000 mg iron isomaltoside 1000
  • Group B (21 subjects): Placebo infusion

Furthermore, non-responders, who continue to meet entry requirements, will receive 1000 mg iron isomaltoside 1000 at week 6.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Restless Legs Syndrome Drug: Iron isomaltoside 1000 Drug: Sodium Chloride 0.9% Phase 2

Detailed Description:

RLS is a disorder of sensation with a prevalence of around 2-5 % of the population. RLS is extremely responsive to dopaminergic agents, but a second issue is that iron deficiency states may precipitate RLS in as much as 25-30 % of subjects with iron deficiency. RLS appears to be related to deficits in brain iron content and metabolism. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images demonstrate a decrease in substantia nigra and red nucleus iron content. The severity of this decrease in brain iron content is correlated with the severity of symptoms. A number of patients are quite resistant to dietary iron repletion but do resolve symptoms with high doses of intravenous (IV) iron.

For the individual subject, there will be 4 phases to the study which includes teleconferences (TCs) and 2 visits.

The treatment and treatment evaluation is the main study.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. To measure the change in RLS symptoms from baseline to week 6 measured by the clinical global impression (CGI) score [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in RLS symptoms from baseline to week 4 and month 2 and 3 measured by the CGI score [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
  2. Change in RLS symptoms from baseline to week 4 and 6 and month 2 and 3 measured by the International Restless Legs Scale (IRLS) [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 12 weeks ]
  3. Time from baseline to start of RLS medication [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 6 weeks ]
  4. Time from baseline to start of RLS medication or non-response (CGI ≥ 3 at week 6) [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 6 weeks ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Type and incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 18 weeks ]
  2. Number of adverse events (AEs) of special interest [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 18 weeks ]
    (i.e. hypersensitivity symptoms such as: urticaria, oedema, bronchospasm, hypotension, cardiorespiratory arrest, syn-cope, unresponsiveness, or loss of consciousness at pre-specified time points in relation to administration of study drug)

  3. Change in haematology parameters, s-sodium, s-potassium, s-calcium, s-phosphate, s-urea, s-creatinine, s-albumin, s-bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT), and ala-nine aminotransferase (ALAT) from baseline to week 6 and month 3 [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 18 weeks ]
  4. Change in vital signs (heart rate and blood pressure) during drug administration [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 18 weeks ]
  5. Clinical significant electrocardiogram (ECG) during drug administration [ Time Frame: from baseline to t = 18 weeks ]
