    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    To assess the incidence of FVIII inhibitory antibodies (≥0.6 Bethesda units [BU] using the Nijmegen modification of the Bethesda assay).
    Protection of trial subjects
    This study was conducted in accordance with the protocol, the ICH Guideline for Good Clinical Practice E6 (ICH GCP, April 1996), Title 21 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations, the European Clinical Trial Directive (2001/20/EC and 2005/28/EC) and applicable national and local regulatory requirements. Justification for enrollment of pediatric subjects is based on the requirements outlined in the ICH M3 and E11 guidelines. The clinical development program for BAX 855 followed the EMA guidance outlined in EMA/CHMP/BPWP/144533/2009. In line with this guidance the pediatric study did not start before the data of 20 previously treated patients (PTPs) ≥12 years of age that had been treated for at least 50 exposure days (EDs) and the pharmacokinetic (PK) data of at least 12 PTPs ≥12 years of age were available (study 261201), were reviewed by an independent data monitoring committee (DMC) and a decision to start the study was obtained. For the PK evaluation, a population PK approach was used to reduce the number of blood draws: the 3 post-infusion blood draws over 96 hours were randomly selected from 3 choices for each blood draw.
    Background therapy
    -
    Evidence for comparator
    Prior to receiving prophylactic treatment with BAX 855, a subgroup of subjects within each age cohort underwent PK assessments with ADVATE followed by BAX 855 to compare the PK parameters of BAX 855 with ADVATE.

    Annualized bleeding rate
    End point description
    The annualized bleeding rate (ABR) was assessed based upon each individual bleeding episode, spontaneous or traumatic, recorded in the subject´s diary and/or recorded in the physician/nurse/study site notes. In the Full Analysis Set (n=66), the point estimate for the overall mean ABR was 3.04 (95% confidence interval [CI] 2.208 – 4.186). Point estimates for the mean ABR were 2.37 (95% CI 1.486 – 3.778) in subjects <6 years of age (n=32) and 3.75 (95% CI 2.429 –5.781) in subjects 6 to <12 years of age (n=34). Point estimates for the mean annualized spontaneous bleeding rate were 1.164 (95% CI 0.740 - 1.832) in the FAS (n=66), 1.018 (95% CI 0.523 - 1.978) in the younger (n=32) and 1.316 (95% CI 0.710 - 2.438) in the older (n=34) age cohort. Point estimates for the mean annualized rate of joint bleeds were 1.103 (95% CI 0.637 - 1.910) in the FAS (n=66), 0.862 (95% CI 0.381 - 1.946) in the younger (n=32) and 1.355 (95% CI 0.648 - 2.833) in the older age cohort (n=34).

    A total of 70 treated bleeding episodes occurred in 34 subjects: 25 treated bleeding episodes in 15 subjects <6 years of age and 45 treated bleeding episodes in 19 subjects 6 to <12 years of age. Rating Scale for Treatment of Bleeding Episodes (BEs) (4-point ordinal scale): EXCELLENT: Full relief of pain and cessation of objective signs of bleeding (eg, swelling, tenderness, and decreased range of motion in the case of musculoskeletal hemorrhage) after a single infusion. No additional infusion required for the control of bleeding. Administration of further infusions to maintain hemostasis did not affect this scoring. GOOD: Definite pain relief and/or improvement in signs of bleeding after a single infusion. Possibly requires more than 1 infusion for complete resolution. FAIR: Probable and/or slight relief of pain and slight improvement in signs of bleeding after single infusion. Required more than 1 infusion for complete resolution. NONE: No improvement or condition worsens.

    Binding antibodies to FVIII and PEG-FVIII, as well as to PEG, were measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Both immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin M (IgM) binding antibodies for FVIII, BAX 855, and PEG were routinely tested. Based on the variability of these tests, only samples with titers ≥1:80 could be confirmed and were evaluated as positive. Furthermore, only increases of more than 2 titer steps between pre- and post-treatment samples were considered positive for treatment-related antibody development.

    Pharmacokinetics (PK): Plasma half-life (T 1/2)
    End point description
    The first infusion given for PK assessment was ADVATE and the second infusion was BAX 855. All subjects undergoing PK assessment were to have a 72-hour washout period prior to administration of ADVATE or BAX 855. The timing of the infusion (morning or afternoon) and the timing of the second and third post-infusion blood draws were to be determined at randomization. All subjects had samples drawn at 15-30 minutes post-infusion. The second post-infusion sample was either 7 hours (if am PK dose) or 4 hours post infusion (if pm PK dose), or on Day 1 in the morning or Day 1 in the afternoon. The third post-infusion sample was either on Day 2, Day 3 or Day 4. A nonlinear mixed effects model approach (population PK) was implemented to analyze PK data.

    Substantial protocol amendments (globally)

    Were there any global substantial amendments to the protocol? Yes
    Date
    Amendment
    18 Nov 2014
    -) The inclusion criterion “The subject has severe hemophilia A (FVIII <1%) as determined by the central laboratory” was amended to: “The subject has severe hemophilia A (FVIII <1%) as determined by the central laboratory, or a historical FVIII level <1% as determined at any local laboratory and/or a FVIII gene mutation consistent with severe hemophilia A”. Reason for change: To avoid potential risk of bleeding episodes in the washout period. -) Text regarding dose adjustment of BAX 855 for prophylactic treatment was amended as follows: Original text: “Based on the Investigator’s clinical evaluation, the dose may be increased for subjects receiving prophylactic treatment at any time to ensure patient safety is adequately managed.” Revised text: “Based on the Investigator’s clinical evaluation, the dose may be increased up to a maximum of 80 IU/kg but not exceeding plasmatic FVIII peak levels of 200% for subjects receiving prophylactic treatment at any time to ensure patient safety is adequately managed.” Reason for change: To provide a maximum dose for prophylactic treatment. -) Addition of the following serious adverse event (SAE) criterion: “Hospitalization for planned port placement or removal is not considered an SAE, however, any hospitalization required for an emergency port removal is considered an SAE”.

    Interruptions (globally)

    Were there any global interruptions to the trial? No
