COMBACTE completes trial of AstraZeneca’s anti-infective

COMBACTE-NET consortium has completed the Phase II SAATELLITE clinical trial of AstraZeneca’s anti-infective drug suvratoxumab to prevent ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) by Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) bacteria in intensive care unit (ICU) patients.

Direct-to-Patient Trials: How IRT Plays an Important Role in Bellerophon's Direct-to-Patient Trials

As the industry strengthens its focus on patient centricity, Direct-to-Patient clinical trials have emerged as a popular trial design that have the potential to increase patient recruitment and retention. IRT plays a crucial role in the success of a Direct-to-Patient trial. Because drug supplies are being managed and shipped from distribution facilities directly to patients’ homes, a sponsor must have a high-quality system in place to accurately track the chain of custody, ensure patient-blinding and handle other logistical challenges.

The European consortium is supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI). SAATELLITE is part of the IMI’s New Drugs 4 Bad Bugs (ND4BB) programme, which was launched to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in Europe.

COMBACTE noted that SAATELLITE is the first ND4BB trial to investigate an anti-infective drug that is not an antibiotic. Suvratoxumab (MEDI4893) is a monoclonal antibody (mAb) designed to target a toxin generated by S. aureus.

“The SAATELLITE study is an example of highly successful public-private collaboration, necessary for the development of novel medicines.”

The trial, which was sponsored by AstraZeneca, assessed the safety and efficacy of suvratoxumab in a total of 213 critically ill patients who were colonised with the bacteria in the lower respiratory tract.

The colonisation was confirmed using a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay, allowing the selection of subjects eligible for the trial.

COMBACTE-NET coordinator and AstraZeneca Clinical Research and Development senior director Hasan Jafri said: “The SAATELLITE study is an example of highly successful public-private collaboration, necessary for the development of novel medicines to address the challenges of rising antimicrobial resistance in Europe.

“As the first and largest pre-emptive trial within the consortium, the novel trial design required the development of novel endpoints, which set SAATELLITE apart from the traditional non-inferiority trials of antibiotics.”

The primary outcome measures of the trial were safety and efficacy of single intravenous doses of the drug, as assessed by adverse events and clinical symptoms of pneumonia, respectively.

In addition, the trial’s secondary outcomes included pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters and anti-drug antibody (ADA) responses.

Top-line data from the SAATELLITE trial will be presented at the ECCMID meeting in Amsterdam, Netherlands on 16 April and at the ATS meeting at Dallas, US on 20 May.
