Current Environment:


Study AG348-C-003 is a multicenter study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of different dose levels of AG-348 (mitapivat) in participants with PK deficiency.


Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency

Recruitment Status

Active, not recruiting

Detailed Description

This is a Phase 2, open label, two arm, multicenter, randomized, dose-ranging study during which adult participants with PK deficiency will receive multiple doses of AG-348 for up to 24 weeks (Core Period); eligible participants may enter an Extension Period to receive AG-348 for up to 8 additional years. Data will be reviewed on a regular basis and study design, dose and schedule will be adapted based on these reviews. The study will evaluate the safety and tolerability of multiple doses of AG-348, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (PD) profile of AG-348 and early indicators of clinical efficacy.

Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status ≤ 2
Must be taking at least 1 mg folic acid daily in the 21 days prior to screening
Adequate organ function defined by liver function, kidney function, platelet count and coagulation assessments
Agreement to use approved contraceptive measures

Women must not be breastfeeding

For entry into the Extension Period, patients must meet criteria # 15-16:

Must have completed 24 weeks of treatment during the Core Period and tolerated AG-348
The treating Investigator agrees that there is a potential for clinical benefit to continued treatment and recommends participation in the Extension Period and the Medical Monitor approves

Major surgery in the last 6 months
Psychiatric disorder that could compromise the ability of the patient to cooperate with the study
Serum bilirubin higher to the upper limit of normal attributable to factors other than hemolysis or Gilbert's Syndrome
Use of restricted products known to strongly inhibit cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 metabolism within 5 days prior to Prior Day 1 dosing, or to strongly induce cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4) metabolism within 28 days prior to Day 1 dosing, or to strongly inhibit P-glycoprotein transporter within 5 days prior to Day 1 dosing, or digoxin within 5 days prior to Day 1 dosing.

Any other medical or psychological condition deemed by the Investigator to be likely to interfere with a patient's ability to participate in the study
Patients will not be permitted to enter the Extension Period if: The patient experienced AEs during the Core Period that are considered by the treating Investigator or the Sponsor's designated Medical Monitor to pose a significant safety risk to the patient if treatment were to be extended
