    General information about the trial
    Main objective of the trial
    The primary objective of the trial was to determine the effect of ACZ885 versus placebo on daily pain experienced by SCA subjects.
    Protection of trial subjects
    The study was in compliance with the ethical principles derived from the Declaration of Helsinki and the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines. All the local regulatory requirements pertinent to safety of trial subjects were also followed during the conduct of the trial
    Background therapy
    Subjects were maintained on their pre-existing stable medical regimen for treatment of preexisting medical conditions, including SCA. Common potential concomitant medications in this study population were anticipated to include analgesics and stable hydroxyurea therapy, defined as a hydroxyurea dosing regimen that remained fixed except for any adjustments according to hematologic parameters or other standard of care clinical monitoring. All prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and significant non-drug therapies (including physical therapy and blood transfusions) administered or taken within the timeframe defined in the entry criteria prior to the start of the study and during the study was recorded on the concomitant medications/significant non-drug therapies section of the CRF.

    Primary: Change from baseline of 4- week average daily pain measured by Visual analog score (VAS) over the period of Week 8 to 12

    Close Top of page
    End point title
    Change from baseline of 4- week average daily pain measured by Visual analog score (VAS) over the period of Week 8 to 12
    End point description
    Visual analog scale (VAS) was used to record severity. Pediatric and young adult participants rated their daily sickle cell associated pain intensity once each day in the evening using an 11-point numerical rating scale from 0 to 10 with higher ratings associated with more intense pain (0 = no pain, 10 = worst pain). For each subject, there was a maximum 28-day screening period that included recording of daily pain intensity by e-diary for at least 1 week. The average daily pain results in the screening period were used to derive the baseline value. The average over week 8 to 12 was calculated and the change from baseline in the average daily pain VAS was analyzed using a Bayesian model for repeated measures.

    Notes
    [2] - The end point is not reporting statistics for all the arms in the baseline period. It is expected all the baseline period arms will be reported on when providing values for an end point on the baseline period.
    Justification: Placebo patients were excluded from the PK analyses.

    The protocol was amended to implement the changes requested by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to clarify the stopping rules by applying a threshold of 20% higher SAE rate in the ACZ885 arm compared to placebo arm to identify an overt change in the SAE incidence rate.
    09 Aug 2017
    The protocol was amended to improve clarity and update elements of secondary and exploratory outcomes, study design, inclusion/exclusion criteria, stopping rules and data analysis based on study investigators’ input and initial trial experience. In addition, total volume requirements for blood sampling were reduced.
