Detailed description of study
The study duration per participant is approximatively 76 weeks including a 3-to-5-week screening period, a 52-week treatment period on investigational medicinal product (IMP) and a 20-week post-IMP treatment follow-up period.
Clinical Study Identifier: NCT04701983
Eligibility of study
You may be eligible for this study if you meet the following criteria:
- Conditions: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Age: Between 40 Years - 85 Years
Gender: Male or Female
Inclusion criteria :
- Participant must be 40 to 85 years of age inclusive.
- Physician diagnosis of COPD for at least 1 year (based on Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease [GOLD] definition.
- Smoking history of ≥10 pack-years, but who are not currently smoking, and smoking cessation must have occurred ≥6 months prior to Screening (Visit 1A) with an intention to quit permanently.
- Participants with moderate-to-severe COPD
- Participant-reported history of signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis (chronic productive cough for at least 3 months in the year prior to screening in a participant in whom other causes of chronic cough [eg, inadequately treated gastroesophageal reflux or chronic rhinosinusitis; or clinical diagnosis of bronchiectasis] has been excluded).
- Documented history of high exacerbation risk defined as having had ≥2 moderate or ≥1
severe exacerbations within the year prior to Screening (Visit 1A), with at least 1
exacerbation treated with systemic corticosteroids. At least one exacerbation must
have occurred while participants were on their current controller therapy:
- Moderate exacerbations will be recorded by the Investigator and are defined as acute worsening of respiratory symptoms that requires either systemic corticosteroids (IM, IV, or oral) and/or antibiotics.
- Severe exacerbations will be recorded by the Investigator and are defined as AECOPD that require hospitalization or observation for >24 hours in emergency department/urgent care facility.
- Participants with standard of care controller therapy, for ≥3 months prior to
Screening (Visit 1A) and at a stable dose of controller therapy for at least 1 month prior to the screening, including either: inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) + long-acting beta-agonist (LABA), long-acting muscarinic antagonist (LAMA) + LABA or LAMA + LABA + ICS.
- Body mass index (BMI) ≥18.0 kg/m^2
- Female participant is not pregnant, not breastfeeding, and at least one of the
following conditions applies:
- not a women of child-bearing potential (WOCBP) OR
- a WOCBP who agrees to follow the contraceptive guidance during the intervention period and for at least 20 weeks after the last dose of study intervention.
- Current diagnosis of asthma according to the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) guidelines, or documented history of asthma.
- Active smoking or vaping of any products (eg, nicotine, tetrahydrocannabinol [THC]) within 6 months prior to Screening (Visit 1A).
- Clinically significant new abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) within 6 months prior to, or at Screening (Visit 1A) that may affect the participant's participation in the study.
- Clinically significant and current pulmonary disease other than COPD, eg, sarcoidosis, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis (clinical diagnosis), diagnosis of α-1 anti-trypsin deficiency, or another diagnosed pulmonary disease.
- Diagnosis of cor pulmonale, evidence of right cardiac failure, or moderate-to-severe pulmonary hypertension.
- Hypercapnia requiring bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP).
- Moderate or severe exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) within 4 weeks prior to Screening (Visit 1A).
- Prior history of / planned: lung pneumonectomy for any reason, or lung volume reduction procedures (including bronchoscopic volume reduction) for COPD. Note: Surgical biopsy, or segmentectomy, or wedge resection, or lobectomy for other diseases would not be excluded.
- Unstable ischemic heart disease, including acute myocardial infarction within the past 1 year prior to Screening, or unstable angina in the 6 months prior to Screening (Visit 1A).
- Cardiac arrhythmias including paroxysmal (eg, intermittent) atrial fibrillation.
- Uncontrolled hypertension (ie, systolic blood pressure [BP] >180 mm Hg or diastolic BP >110 mm Hg with or without use of anti-hypertensive therapy).
- Participants with active tuberculosis (TB), latent TB, a history of incompletely treated TB, suspected extrapulmonary TB infection (TBI), or who are at high risk of contracting TB (such as close contact with individuals with active or latent TB) or received Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG)-vaccination within 12 weeks prior to Screening (Visit 1A).
- History of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or positive HIV 1/2 serology at Screening (Visit 1A).
- Suspicion of, or confirmed, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection or in contact with known exposure to COVID-19 at Screening (Visit 1A); known history of COVID-19 infection within 4 weeks prior to Screening (Visit 1A); history of requiring mechanical ventilation or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) secondary to COVID-19 within 3 months prior to sScreening (Visit 1A); participants who have had a COVID-19 infection prior Screening (Visit 1A) who have not yet sufficiently recovered to participate in the procedures of a clinical trial.
- Evidence of acute or chronic infection requiring systemic treatment with anti bacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic, or antiprotozoal medications within 4 weeks before Screening (Visit 1A), significant viral infections within 4 weeks before Screening (Visit 1A) that may not have been treated with antiviral treatment (eg, influenza receiving only symptomatic treatment).
- Participants with active autoimmune disease or participants using immunosuppressive therapy for autoimmune disease (eg, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, primary biliary cirrhosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis.
- History of malignancy within 5 years before Screening (Visit 1A), except completely treated in situ carcinoma of the cervix, completely treated and resolved nonmetastatic squamous or basal cell carcinoma of the skin.
