Condition(s) targeted: Pneumonia

Intervention: Ilomedin and Integrilin (Drug); low molecular weight heparin. (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Status: Suspended

Sponsored by: Thrombologic ApS


This is an investigator sponsored double-blinded, multinational, multi center, randomized (2: 1 active: placebo), placebo-controlled, phase IIa trial in severe pneumonia patients with severe sepsis or septic shock, investigating the safety and efficacy of co-administration of Iloprost and escalating doses of Eptifibatide for continuous intravenous infusion in totally 36 patients.

Clinical Details

Official title: Double-blinded, Randomized Trial in Severe Pneumonia Patients With Severe Sepsis Investigating the Safety and Efficacy of Co-administration of Iloprost and Ascending Doses of Eptifibatide Compared to Low-molecular-weight Heparin

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in platelet count from baseline to 72 hours post treatment

Secondary outcome:

Severe bleeding (intracranial or clinical bleeding with the use of 3 RBC units or more) (KyperSept trial)

Days of vasopressor, ventilator and renal replacement therapy and use of blood product (in ICU) after randomization
