A Study to Estimate the Effect Sizes of HRCT Endpoints in Response to Glucocorticoid Induction Therapy in Subjects With Pulmonary Sarcoidosis

Study Purpose

This is a multicenter, single-arm, unblinded/open-label study of the effect size of HRCT endpoints in response to glucocorticoid induction therapy in subjects with a diagnosis of pulmonary sarcoidosis who have not received glucocorticoid as initial sarcoidosis therapy (≥ 20 mg/day prednisone or prednisolone) or other sarcoidosis therapy for at least 3 months prior to enrollment. This study will enroll a total of approximately 24 subjects.

Exclusion Criteria:

The presence of any of the following will exclude a subject from enrollment. If the result(s) do not satisfy eligibility criteria, subjects will be ineligible to enroll in the study and will be considered a screen failure. Subjects may be re-screened with the approval of the medical monitor: 1. Subject has any significant medical condition, laboratory abnormality, neurological disease or psychiatric illness that would prevent the subject from safely completing the study. Prior evidence of neurological disease must be documented. 2. Subject has any condition that confounds the ability to interpret data from the study. 3. Subject is a pregnant or a nursing female. 4. Subject has received another interventional investigational drug for sarcoidosis within the 3 months prior to screening or 5 PK half-lives, whichever is longer*. 5.

Subject has a history of significant (greater than a wedge) lung resection. 6. Subject is receiving therapy for sarcoidosis associated pulmonary hypertension, or has an indication for such therapy. 7. Subject has uncontrolled diabetes and other contraindications to glucocorticoid therapy. 8.

Additional Details

Optimal development of novel treatments for sarcoidosis requires clinical study endpoints that efficiently reflect changes in disease activity over short treatment durations. Such endpoints enable preliminary assessment of candidate drug efficacy in small studies

  • - prior to exposing large cohorts to experimental compounds in pursuit of registrational data.
This study will accordingly investigate the ways that certain HRCT-based functional respiratory imaging (FRI) measures can serve as more quantitative and sensitive endpoints compared to pulmonary function tests to measure drug effect in a short duration small sample size study in patients with pulmonary sarcoidosis. The study is designed to minimize impact on sarcoid care that the patient would have otherwise received. Glucocorticoid (≥ 30 mg/day prednisone or prednisolone) as per local clinical practice of sarcoidosis initial induction therapy will be taken orally in this study. The glucocorticoid dose may be modified depending on ongoing assessment as a part of standard local clinical practice.
