A Phase 2, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Double-blind, Open-label Extension Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of KD025 in Subjects with Diffuse Cutaneous Systemic Sclerosis

Summary

KD025 is an investigational medication undergoing testing to determine if it may be effective in the treatment of diffuse systemic sclerosis (skin thickening on more than just the hands). KD025 has previously been tested in graft-versus-host disease, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and psoriasis. It has shown preliminary effectiveness and safety in the treatment of these conditions. This study will randomly assign subjects to one of three treatment groups, 20mg of KD025 twice per day, 20mg of KD025 once per day, and placebo. The study will measure the improvement, stabilization or worsening of your symptoms, such as changes in your fatigue and pain levels, lung function, skin thickness and other patient reported outcomes. The study treatment period will last 1 year. The drug may help mitigate symptoms of systemic sclerosis and thus may be helpful with the disease in study. The population to be enrolled in this study will involve patients diagnosed with systemic sclerosis, diffuse subset, 18 years of age or older.

Scleroderma Lung Study III (SLS III): Combining the anti-fibrotic effects of pirfenidone (PFD) with mycophenolate (MMF) for treating scleroderma-related interstitial lung disease

Pro00077568
Researcher
Richard Silver

List of Studies

Keywords
Autoimmune disease, Drug Studies, Lung, Scleroderma, Shortness of Breath
Summary

This study will assess how 18 months of oral mycophenolate will compare to 18 months of mycophenolate plus pirfenidone, in the treatment of Systemic Sclerosis related Interstitial Lung Disease. Tolerability and toxicity will also be assessed, during this study.
This research is designed to test whether combining pirfenidone and mycophenolate will result in a more rapid and possibly greater improvement in lung function than occurs when mycophenolate is used alone. While both of these drugs have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat other medical conditions, neither drug has been FDA-approved for the treatment of scleroderma related lung disease. This research is being funded by the drug company, Genentech.
