Details and patient eligibility


This is a phase 3 double-blind randomized study to study the efficacy and safety of intravenous ATB200 Co-administered with oral AT2221 in adult subjects with Late Onset Pompe Disease compared with Alglucosidase Alfa/placebo.

Full description

This is a double-blind, randomized, multicenter, international study of ATB200/AT2221 in adult subjects with late-onset Pompe disease (LOPD) who have received enzyme replacement therapy with alglucosidase alfa (ie, ERT-experienced) or who have never received ERT (ie, ERT naïve) compared with alglucosidase alfa/placebo. The study will consist of a screening period up to 30 days, a 12-month treatment period, and a 30 day safety follow-up period. Subjects who complete this study will have the option to participate in an open label extension study to receive ATB200/AT2221 under a separate protocol. Enzyme replacement therapy-experienced subjects will continue to take alglucosidase alfa during the screening period; treatment with alglucosidase alfa will then be replaced by study drug (ATB200/AT2221 or alglucosidase alfa/placebo) on the same schedule without interruption (ie, every 2 weeks). Infusion visits will be scheduled every 2 weeks throughout the study; assessments (eg, clinical laboratory tests) for initial safety monitoring will be performed at these visits for the first 6 weeks of the study. Study visits that include efficacy, safety, and other assessments will be scheduled approximately every 3 months and may occur over 2 days, provided all study assessments and procedures (with the exception of pharmacokinetic [PK] sample collection) are performed before administration of study drug. Efficacy assessments (ie, functional assessments) include evaluation of ambulatory function (6MWT), motor function tests (Gait, Stair, Gowers' maneuver, and Chair [GSGC] test and Timed Up and Go [TUG] test), muscle strength (manual muscle testing and quantitative muscle testing), and pulmonary function tests (forced vital capacity [FVC], slow vital capacity [SVC], maximal inspiratory pressure [MIP], maximal expiratory pressure [MEP], and sniff nasal inspiratory pressure [SNIP]). Patient reported outcomes (Rasch-built Pompe-specific Activity [R PAct] Scale, EuroQol 5 Dimensions 5 Levels Instrument [EQ-5D-5L], Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System [PROMIS®] instruments for physical function, fatigue, dyspnea, and upper extremity, and Subject's Global Impression of Change). The Physician's Global Impression of Change will also be performed. Pharmacodynamic assessments include measurement of biomarkers of muscle injury (creatine kinase [CK]) and disease substrate (urinary hexose tetrasaccharide [Hex4]). Blood samples will be collected for determination of total GAA protein levels and AT2221 concentrations in plasma for a population PK analysis. Safety assessments include monitoring of adverse events (AEs), including infusion associated reactions (IARs), clinical laboratory tests (chemistry, hematology, and urinalysis), vital signs, physical examinations including weight, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and immunogenicity. Concomitant medications and nondrug therapies will also be recorded.

Inclusion and exclusion criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subject must provide signed informed consent prior to any study-related procedures being performed.
  • Male and female subjects are ≥ 18 years old and weigh ≥ 40 kg at screening.
  • Female subjects of childbearing potential and male subjects must agree to use medically accepted methods of contraception during the study and for 90 days after the last dose of study drug.

Subject must have a diagnosis of LOPD based on documentation of one of the following:

  • deficiency of GAA enzyme
  • GAA genotyping

Subject is classified as one of the following with respect to ERT status:

  • ERT-experienced, defined as currently receiving standard of care ERT (alglucosidase alfa) at the recommended dose and regimen (ie, 20 mg/kg dose every 2 weeks) for ≥ 24 months
  • ERT-naïve, defined as never having received investigational or commercially available ERT
  • Subject has a sitting FVC ≥ 30% of the predicted value for healthy adults (National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III) at screening.

Subject performs two 6MWTs at screening that are valid, as determined by the clinical evaluator, and that meet all of the following criteria:

  • both screening values of 6MWD are ≥ 75 meters
  • both screening values of 6MWD are ≤ 90% of the predicted value for healthy adults
  • the lower value of 6MWD is within 20% of the higher value of 6MWD

Exclusion Criteria

  • Subject has received any investigational therapy or pharmacological treatment for Pompe disease, other than alglucosidase alfa, within 30 days or 5 half-lives of the therapy or treatment, whichever is longer, before Day 1 or is anticipated to do so during the study.
  • Subject has received gene therapy for Pompe disease

Subject is taking any of the following prohibited medications within 30 days before Day 1:

  • miglitol (eg, Glyset)
  • miglustat (eg, Zavesca)
  • acarbose (eg, Precose or Glucobay)
  • voglibose (eg, Volix, Vocarb, or Volibo)

Note: None of these medications have a half-life that, when multiplied by 5, is longer than 30 days.

  • Subject requires the use of invasive or noninvasive ventilation support for > 6 hours per day while awake.
  • Subject has a hypersensitivity to any of the excipients in ATB200, alglucosidase alfa, or AT2221.
  • Subject has a medical condition or any other extenuating circumstance that may, in the opinion of the investigator or medical monitor, pose an undue safety risk to the subject or may compromise his/her ability to comply with or adversely impact protocol requirements. This includes clinical depression (as diagnosed by a psychiatrist or other mental health professional) with uncontrolled or poorly controlled symptoms.
  • Subject, if female, is pregnant or breastfeeding at screening.
  • Subject, whether male or female, is planning to conceive a child during the study.
  • Subject does not have documentation of diagnosis of Pompe disease and refuses to undergo genetic testing.
