Details and patient eligibility

About

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and tolerability, as well as PK/PD of OCA in eligible pediatric participants with biliary atresia with successful hepatoportoenterostomy (HPE, also known as a Kasai portoenterostomy). The double-blind period comprises of 2 phases: dose titration phase and age expansion treatment phase.

Enrollment

144 estimated patients

Sex

All

Ages

1 day to 18 years old

Volunteers

No Healthy Volunteers

Inclusion criteria

  • Male or female pediatric participants from birth to <18 years old. Note: Participants aged <2 years old will not be enrolled until after review of safety data during the planned interim analysis and agreement from the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB) that there is sufficient safety data to enroll this age group.
  • Diagnosis of non-syndromic biliary atresia.
  • Demonstrated successful HPE as defined by total bilirubin <2 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) (34.2 micromoles per liter [μmol/L]) at least 3 months post-HPE procedure.

Exclusion criteria

  • Prior liver transplant or active status on transplant list.

  • Participants diagnosed with biliary atresia splenic malformation (BASM).

  • Conjugated (direct) bilirubin ≥ upper limit of normal (ULN) of site-specific reference range. If conjugated bilirubin is not available: total bilirubin ≥2 mg/dL (34.2 mol/L).

  • Platelets <120,000/μL

  • International normalized ratio (INR) ≥1.5.

  • Current or history of complications of decompensated chronic liver disease including:

    1. Gastroesophageal varices and/or variceal bleeding
    2. Clinically evident ascites related to portal hypertension
    3. Hepatic encephalopathy
    4. Prior placement of portosystemic shunt
    5. Hepatopulmonary syndrome or portopulmonary hypertension
    6. Hepatorenal syndrome
    7. Any evidence of portal hypertension based on imaging (e.g., cavernous transformation of portal vein, abdominal varices, etc.)
    8. Hepatocellular carcinoma
    9. Childs-Pugh B or C
  • Height and weight Z-score <-2 per site-specific reference ranges.

  • Acholic (pale) stools.

  • Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) >4x ULN.

  • Alanine aminotransferase >4x ULN

  • GGT >500 Units per Liter (U/L)

  • On anticoagulation therapy

  • Albumin <3.5 grams per deciliter (g/dL).

  • Inability to swallow tablets (i.e., tablet or mini-tablet formulations).

144 participants in 2 patient groups, including a placebo group

Participants receiving OCA
Active Comparator group
Description:
Participants will be randomized to receive OCA (starting at 1.5 milligrams [mg] adult equivalent dose [AED]) orally, with water, once daily. Dose will be titrated every 2 weeks in a stepwise manner for the first 6 weeks, starting at 1.5 mg AED and titrating through 3 mg AED to a maximum of 5 mg AED, as tolerated; a discussion with the Medical Monitor is encouraged when determining uptitration if considerable signs or symptoms have arisen. Following the 6-week dose titration phase, participants will continue at the tolerated dose for approximately 24 months in Age Expansion Treatment Phase.
Treatment:
Drug: OCA
Participants receiving Matching placebo
Placebo Comparator group
Description:
Participants will be randomized to receive matching placebo orally, with water, once daily. Dose will be titrated every 2 weeks in a stepwise manner for the first 6 weeks, starting at 1.5 mg AED and titrating through 3 mg AED to a maximum of 5 mg AED, as tolerated; a discussion with the Medical Monitor is encouraged when determining uptitration if considerable signs or symptoms have arisen. Following the 6-week dose titration phase, participants will continue at the tolerated dose for approximately 24 months in Age Expansion Treatment Phase.
Treatment:
Drug: Matching Placebo
