About

A Phase 3, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-center, fixed-dose, parallel-group efficacy and safety study in a pediatric population (6-17) with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) using CTx-1301 (d-MPH). The study will be comprised of a screening period, a double-blind randomized phase, and a safety follow-up visit.

Full description

A Phase 3, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, multi-center, fixed-dose, parallel group efficacy and safety study in pediatrics (6-17) with ADHD diagnosis confirmed by an ADHD-RS-5 score of at least 28 and CGI-S score of at least 4 (moderately ill) at screening. The study will be comprised of a screening period, a double-blind randomized phase, and a safety follow-up visit.

The Study will be comprised of 3 periods:

Screening Period (Day -30 to Day -1): Subjects will undergo a Screening Visit (Visit 1) up to 30 days prior to entering the randomized treatment period. Only subjects that meet all inclusion and no exclusion criteria at screening may be considered for entry/randomization into the study. A reminder telephone call will be completed 5 days prior to Day 0 (Visit 2) to ensure washout of current prohibited medications, to confirm inclusion/exclusion criteria, and to confirm date of next visit. Randomized Treatment Period (Day 0 to Day 35 +/- 3 days): Subjects will be randomized on Day 0 to active or placebo (placebo, CTx-1301 18.75 mg, CTx-1301 25 mg, or CTx-1301 37.5 mg). Subjects randomized to the active dose will have a starting dose of 12.5 mg on Day 0. Each subject randomized to an active dose will be titrated (increased) weekly until they reach their assigned fixed dose; subjects must be on their assigned fixed dose a minimum of 2 sequential weeks prior to the primary efficacy assessment at Week 5/Visit 8. Subjects will be instructed to take their dose every morning at-home upon waking, no later than 8:00 am. Safety Follow-Up Visit (Day 42 +/- 5 days): Subjects will be evaluated for safety after washout of medication.

Subjects will participate in the study as outpatients for up to approximately 10 weeks (including screening); a 30-day screening period, a 5-week double-blind randomized period, and a 1-week follow-up safety visit.

Completion of the primary study is defined as LSLV at Visit 9.

Subjects will be randomized at baseline to CTx-1301 or placebo (CTx-1301 18.75 mg, CTx-1301 25 mg, CTx-1301 37.5 mg, or placebo). Starting dose for subjects randomized to active treatment is 12.5 mg. These subjects will then be titrated up to their assigned fixed dose (18.75, 25, or 37.5 mg) for the last two weeks of the study period. Subjects randomized to placebo will receive placebo treatment for the full 5 weeks of the study.

Sparse PK sampling will be conducted after a single dose and at steady state from the patient population with special attention given to the time the sample is obtained post-dose. These analyses will inform strategies that manage dosing and detail administration for a given subpopulation, planned subsequent studies, and support labeling.

Inclusion criteria

  1. Male or female subjects between 6 and 17 years of age (inclusive) at the time of Randomization (Visit 2). Subjects who are expected to turn 18 years of age during the trial will not be allowed.
  2. Subject must have a body weight between the 5th and 95th percentile (≥5th percentile and ≤95th percentile) for their respective age and sex.
  3. Subject is unsatisfied with his/her current pharmacological therapy for treatment of ADHD or not currently receiving pharmacological therapy for ADHD. Inclusion of subjects who are naïve to pharmacological therapy for ADHD is permitted.
  4. Subjects of child-bearing potential at screening or that become of child-bearing potential during the study must agree to remain abstinent or agree to use a highly effective, medically acceptable form of birth control for the time of written assent and for at least 30 days after the last dose of study drug has been taken (females). Male subjects with female partners must agree at Screening to remain abstinent or agree to use an effective and medically acceptable form of birth control from Screening to 90 days after the last dose of study drug. Child-bearing potential is defined as any female who has had their first period or is 12 years or older (or will be 12 while in the study).
  5. Subject must be in general good health defined as absence of any clinically relevant abnormalities as determined by the Investigator based on physical and neurological examinations, vital signs, ECGs (QTc less than or equal to 460 milliseconds), medical history, and laboratory values (hematology, chemistry, serology, TSH, or urinalysis) at Screening. If any of the exams or values are not within the laboratory reference range, the Investigator must review range and determine if clinically relevant. If clinically relevant, the subject is not eligible for the study.
  6. Subject's intellectual function is at an age-appropriate level, as deemed by the Investigator.
  7. Subject must meet Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders - Fifth Edition (DSM-5) criteria for the primary diagnosis of ADHD or any of the three presentations (combined, inattentive, or hyperactive/impulsive presentation) upon clinical evaluation and confirmed by the MINI International Neuropsychiatric Interview of Children and Adolescents (MINI-KID). The MINI should also be used to evaluate any other psychotic disorders.
  8. Subject must score 28 or higher on the ADHD-RS-5 scale at the Baseline visit (Visit 2).
  9. Subject must have a score of 4 (moderately ill) or higher on the clinician-administrated Clinical Global Impressions-Severity (CGI-S) scale at Baseline (Visit 2).
  10. Subject must be able and willing to wash out of stimulant ADHD medications (except study drug as indicated per protocol), including herbal medication, from 5 days prior to the start of the randomized phase (Visit 2) and for the duration of the entire study, defined as completion of the safety follow-up visit (approximately 1.25 months, excluding screening). Additionally, subject must be able and willing to wash out from non-stimulant ADHD medications 21 days prior to the start of the randomized phase (Visit 2) and for the duration of the entire study (approximately 1.25 months, excluding screening), defined as completion of the safety follow-up visit.
  11. Subject and parent/legal guardian, and/or caregiver (if applicable) must be able to read, write, speak, and understand English and be able to communicate with the Investigator and study coordinator in a satisfactory fashion and complete any study-related materials. Subject and parent/legal guardian, and/or caregiver (if applicable) must plan to be available for the entire duration of the study.
  12. One or more of the parents/legal guardians/caregivers of the subject must voluntarily give written permission for him/her to participate in the study.
  13. Subject must provide written assent prior to study participation.
  14. Subject, subject's parent/legal guardian, and/or caregiver (if applicable) must understand and be willing and able to comply with study procedures as well as the visit schedule. If the subject is cared for by a caregiver for relevant portions of the day, the caregiver may be more suitable for certain assessments, and the caregiver will need to agree to the applicable procedures and visits.
