The Phase IIa clinical study of vamorolone (VBP15) in the treatment of boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), includes a clinical study followed by a IIa extension study. These studies will be conducted at sites of the Cooperative International Neuromuscular Research Group (CINRG) network within the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Sweden, Israel, and Australia and started recruitment in July 2016.
The IIa clinical trial is an open label, multiple ascending dose study of vamorolone (VBP15) on 48 steroid naïve boys aged from 4 years old to less than 7 years old. Boys will be enrolled in four dose cohorts sequentially – 0.25 mg/kg, 0.75 mg/kg, 2.0 mg/kg and 6.0 mg/kg vamorolone, dosing once a day for 2 weeks followed by 2 weeks of follow up off treatment.
The primary outcome of this trial is
- acute safety
- pharmacokinetics of vamorolone administration.
The Phase IIa extension study will be conducted with the participants from the IIa study, at the same dose level and will continue for 24 weeks.
The primary outcome of the IIa extension trial is
- long term safety
- efficacy as measured by the Time to Stand test
