Methods: Healthy adult subjects over 18 years of age without significant current or prior health conditions received a single intravenous (IV) dose of 20 mg/kg inclacumab infused over approximately one hour (Cohort 1). Following a review of safety, a second cohort received a single IV dose of 40 mg/kg infused over approximately one hour (Cohort 2). The total study duration and sample collection period was 29 weeks. Final safety and preliminary pharmacokinetics (PK), anti-drug antibody (ADA), and ex vivo thrombin receptor-activating peptide (TRAP)-activated PLA formation data are reported.
Results: Fifteen subjects received a single dose of inclacumab 20 mg/kg (n=6) or 40 mg/kg (n=9). Fourteen subjects completed the study. Median age was 42 years (range 22 – 52 years); median body weight was 73.6 kg (range 63.7 – 89.3 kg). Through the pre-specified 72-hour post-infusion safety assessment period in both cohorts, no treatment-emergent adverse events (AEs) > grade 1 (mild) nor dose-limiting toxicities were reported. During the duration of the study, there were no serious AEs, infusion-related reactions, or hypersensitivity reactions. Additionally, no clinically significant changes in vital signs, laboratory findings, or ECGs were observed. The most common AEs were headache, myalgia, and contact dermatitis. The only events assessed by the investigator as potentially related to inclacumab were headache and dizziness, which were experienced by one subject (20 mg/kg) and occurred 4 hours following the end of infusion. In healthy subjects, inclacumab demonstrated dose-proportional PK over the dose range tested; PK parameter estimates were consistent with those reported for monoclonal antibodies. Geometric mean Cmax following single doses of 20 and 40 mg/kg were 402 and 970 µg/mL, respectively. Mean TRAP-activated predose PLA formation was 33 - 39% across cohorts and decreased to 9-14% at 2 hours following end of infusion. PLA inhibition was sustained through at least 12 weeks for both the 20 and 40 mg/kg doses. Two subjects in the 40 mg/kg cohort were ADA‑positive on Week 12 and thereafter; a preliminary analysis demonstrated no apparent impact on PK or safety in these subjects.
Conclusions: Inclacumab displayed a well-tolerated safety profile for up to 29 weeks following a single dose of 20 or 40 mg/kg in healthy subjects. Durable inhibition of TRAP-activated PLA formation was observed through at least 12 weeks, consistent with prior observations. Overall, the results support a Phase 3 dose of 30 mg/kg every 12 weeks in patients with SCD-related VOCs.
