Condition(s) targeted: Chronic Hepatitis C Virus Infection

Intervention: ABT-333 (Drug); Placebo for ABT-333 (Other); Pegylated interferon (Drug); Ribavirin (Drug)

Phase: Phase 2

Status: Completed

Sponsored by: AbbVie (prior sponsor, Abbott)

Official(s) and/or principal investigator(s):
Daniel Cohen, MD, Study Director, Affiliation: AbbVie

Summary

The purpose of this study was to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and antiviral activity of ABT-333 (also known as dasabuvir) in treatment-nave, hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected participants.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Blinded, Randomized, Placebo-controlled Study to Evaluate the Safety, Tolerability, Pharmacokinetics, and Antiviral Activity of Multiple Doses of ABT-333 Alone and in Combination With Pegylated Interferon (pegIFN) and Ribavirin (RBV) in Subjects With Genotype 1 Chronic Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Infection

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome:

Mean Maximal Change From Baseline in Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels During ABT-333 Monotherapy Treatment

Mean Maximal Change From Baseline in Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels Through Day 28

Maximum Plasma Concentration (Cmax) of ABT-333

Time to Maximum Plasma Concentration (Tmax) of ABT-333

Area Under the Plasma Concentration-time Curve From 0 to 12 Hours Post-dose (AUC12) of ABT-333

Serum Concentrations of Pegylated Interferon (pegIFN)

Plasma Concentrations of Ribavirin (RBV)

Number of Participants Having Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (AEs)

Secondary outcome:

Change From Baseline in Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels Through Day 28 or Final Visit

Percentage of Participants With at Least a 2 log10 Maximal Decrease in Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels During ABT-333 Treatment

Percentage of Participants With Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels ≤ 25 IU/mL (the Lower Limit of Quantitation [LLOQ]) at Day 28 or Final Visit

Percentage of Participants With Hepatitis C Virus Ribonucleic Acid (HCV RNA) Levels ≤ 10 IU/mL (Lower Limit of Detection [LLOD]) at Day 28 or Final Visit

Number of Participants With Resistance-Associated Variants in Non-structural Viral Protein 5B (NS5B) Through Day 28

Number of Participants With Maximal Phenotypic Resistance to ABT-333 >10 Fold Relative to Baseline Through Day 28

Detailed description: This was a Phase 2a, blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial in hepatitis C virus (HCV)-infected adults with 2 planned sequential evaluations, Part 1 and Part 2. The study evaluated the safety, tolerability, antiviral activity, and pharmacokinetics of ABT-333 or placebo monotherapy, followed by 26 days of ABT-333 or placebo with pegylated interferon a-2a (pegIFN) and ribavirin (RBV) combination therapy. Review of safety and efficacy in Part 1 of the study showed similar response rates across ABT-333 doses so Part 2 of the study was not performed. The study also assessed emergence of resistant HCV in conjunction with kinetics of viral load decay and rebound in treatment-naïve, HCV-infected participants.

Eligibility
