About

This will be a Phase 1, Open-label Study of Participants with Hepatic Impairment, Cholestatic Liver Disease, and NASH with Advanced Fibrosis and Normal Hepatic Function

Full description

Male and female participants 18-80 years of age (inclusive) with normal hepatic function or hepatic impairment/disease who meet all of the inclusion and none of the exclusion criteria. Subjects with hepatic impairment will be enrolled based upon the Child-Pugh-Turcotte (CPT) classification system for mild hepatic impairment (Group 1 CPT Class A without PHT; Group 2 CPT Class A with PHT), moderate hepatic impairment (Group 3 Decompensated CPT Class B), or severe hepatic impairment (Group 4 Decompensated CPT Class C). Group 5 will include subjects with cholestatic liver disease and Group 6 will include subjects with non-cirrhotic advanced fibrosis secondary to NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis). The control group (Group 7) will consist of demographic matched subjects with normal hepatic function.

Inclusion criteria

Ability to comprehend and willingness to sign a written informed consent for the study. Male or female aged 18 to 80 years (inclusive) at the time of signing the ICF. Body mass index within the range 18.0 to 48.0 kg/m2 (inclusive) at screening. Females must be non-pregnant, non-lactating and of non-childbearing potential or using highly efficient contraception for the full duration of the study. Females of child-bearing potential and Males must agree to use contraception for the full duration of the study. Ability to swallow and retain oral medication. Groups 1 through 6 subjects may have medical findings consistent with their degree of hepatic dysfunction, as determined by medical history, physical examination, vital signs, ECGs, and clinical laboratory examinations at screening and check-in. Participants with abnormal findings considered not clinically significant by the Investigator are eligible. Participants with hepatic impairment in Groups 1-4 will be classified at screening based on CPT score. If the hepatic impairment classification for the subject is not the same at screening and day -1, enrolment of the subject into a hepatic category group will be at the discretion of the hepatology Investigator. Laboratory test values for Groups 1-4 hepatic impairment subjects must be clinically acceptable to the Investigator and meet all of the following parameters at Screening: ALT/AST value ≤ 10 × upper limit of normal (ULN) Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 750/mm3 Platelets ≥ 25,000/mm3 Hemoglobin ≥ 8 g/dL α-fetoprotein < 50 ng/mL or 50-80 ng/mL with concurrent negative imaging study (US, CT, MRI) Group 2 must have evidence of PHT as manifested by one of the following: presence of hepatic encephalopathy or ascites (on exam or imaging or medication to control these symptoms), historical or current presence of varices by imaging or endoscopy, historical or current presence of splenomegaly by imaging or physical exam, previous Hepatic Venous Pressure Gradient Measurement (HVPG) >10 mmHg, platelet count <150,000/mm3 (or /uL), or Fibroscan® at screening >20 kPa. Documented history of cholestatic liver disease (i.e. primary biliary cholangitis, primary sclerosing cholangitis) OR alkaline phosphatase at screening of >1.25 x ULN with AST/ALT <1.2 x ULN OR Historical presence of AMA (anti-mitochondrial antibody) >1:40 and elevated alkaline phosphatase > ULN at screening Clinical diagnosis of NASH and the following criteria: a. Screening Fibroscan® with liver stiffness > 8.5 kPa AND CAP >280 dB AND At least two criteria for metabolic syndrome modified from the NCEP ATP III Guidelines, at screening: i. Fasting glucose >100 mg/dL or receiving drug treatment for elevated glucose, ii. Fasting HDL cholesterol <40 mg/dL in men and <50 mg/dL in women or receiving drug treatment for low HDL cholesterol, iii. Fasting triglycerides > 150 mg/dL or receiving drug treatment for hypertriglyceridemia, iv. Waist circumference >102 cm for men or >88 cm for women or BMI >30 kg/m2, v. Systolic blood pressure >130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure >85 mmHg or receiving drug treatment for hypertension OR: b. A historical liver biopsy within 6 months of screening consistent with NASH with stage 3 fibrosis and no documented weight loss >10% since date of liver biopsy Subjects with normal hepatic function must match in age (± 10 years), gender, and weight (± 10 kg) with hepatic disease participants in the Groups 1-6. Subjects should be in good health as determined by no clinically significant findings in the medical history, physical examination, vital signs, 12-lead electrocardiograms (ECGs), or laboratory examinations at Screening or Check-in. Laboratory test values within normal limits or considered not clinically significant by the Investigator for subjects with normal hepatic function including ALT/AST < 1.2 × ULN at screening.

Exclusion criteria

Any significant, unstable medical condition or other instability that would prevent the subject from participating in the study as determined by the Investigator or designee.

History of stomach or intestinal surgery or resection within the six months prior to screening that would potentially alter absorption and/or excretion of orally administered drugs (uncomplicated appendectomy, cholecystectomy, and hernia repair will be allowed). History of any significant drug allergy (such as anaphylaxis) deemed clinically relevant by the Investigator. Any major surgery within 3 months of screening. Donation of blood or blood products within 3 months prior to screening. Current active infectious disease requiring systemic antibiotic, antifungal, or antiviral treatment or symptoms of active infectious disease within the two weeks prior to screening. Use or intend to use any medications/products known to alter drug absorption, metabolism, or elimination processes, including St. John's Wort, within 21 days prior to screening, unless deemed acceptable by the Investigator. Receiving or has received any investigational drug within the 30 days or 5 halflives (whichever is longer), before receiving Saroglitazar Magnesium. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 60 mL/min/1.73m2 by modification of diet in renal disease (MDRD) formula at screening.
