Description

Summary

This is a first-in-human/first-in-patient, multi-center, open-label, non-randomized, ascending dose, safety and tolerability study of a single intravenous infusion of PF-06939926 in ambulatory and non-ambulatory subjects with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Other objectives include measurement of dystrophin expression and distribution, and assessments of muscle strength, quality, and function. A total of approximately 35 subjects will receive PF-06939926, and these will include both ambulatory and non-ambulatory subjects. Up to 13 subjects may be included in a cohort that includes the concomitant medication, sirolimus. In order to mitigate unanticipated risks to subject safety, enrollment will be staggered within and between two planned dose-levels and will include a formal review by an external data monitoring committee (E-DMC) prior to dose progression.

Open to males ages 4 years and up

  • Age as follows, based on ambulatory status:
  • FOR AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS, defined as the ability to walk at least 10 meters unassisted: Between 4 and 12 years, inclusive,
  • FOR NON-AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS, defined as the inability to walk at least 10 meters unassisted: No age restrictions so long as loss of ambulation occurs prior to the subject's 17th birthday;
  • Diagnosis of Duchenne muscular dystrophy confirmed by medical history and genetic testing;
  • Receipt of glucocorticoids for 6 months and a stable daily dose for at least 3 months prior to study entry;
  • Ability to tolerate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) without sedation and with no contraindications to these procedures;
  • Ability to tolerate muscle biopsies under anesthesia with no contraindications to these procedures;
  • Body weights as follows, based on ambulatory status:
  • FOR AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Between 15 kg and 50 kg,
  • FOR NON-AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Less than 75 kg, but which may be managed or adjusted to a lower limit, especially to ensure participant safety;
  • Functional performance as follows, based on ambulatory status:
  • FOR AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Ability to rise from floor within seven (7) seconds,
  • FOR NON-AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Percent predicted forced vital capacity greater than 40% as part of pulmonary function tests, as well as adequate upper limb function.

You CAN'T join if...

  • Receipt of live attenuated vaccination within 3 months prior to receiving PF-06939926 or exposure to an influenza (or other inactivated) vaccination or systemic antiviral and/or interferon therapy within 30 days prior to receipt of PF-06939926;
  • Prior exposure to any gene therapy agent, including exon-skipping agents;
  • Exposure to other investigational drugs within 30 days or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer;
  • Neutralizing antibodies (NAb) against adeno-associated virus, serotype 9 (AAV9);
  • Compromised cardiac function as indicated by left ventricular ejection fraction on cardiac MRI, as follows, based on ambulatory status:
  • FOR AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Less than 55%,
  • FOR NON-AMBULATORY PARTICIPANTS: Less than 35%;
  • Inadequate hepatic or renal function or risk factors for autoimmune disease on screening laboratory assessments.
  • The following genetic abnormalities in the dystrophin gene as confirmed by the investigator based on the review of the DMD genetic testing:
  • Any mutation (exon deletion, exon duplication, insertion, or point mutation) affecting any exon between exon 9 and exon 13, inclusive; OR
  • A deletion that affects both exon 29 and exon 30.
