A Trial of Bardoxolone Methyl in Patients With ADPKD - FALCON
This international, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial will study the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of bardoxolone methyl in qualified patients with ADPKD. Approximately 850 patients will be enrolled.
- Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney

- Eligible Genders
- Accepts Healthy Volunteers
- Male and female patients 12 ≤ age ≤ 70 upon study consent; - Diagnosis of ADPKD by modified Pei-Ravine criteria: 1) at least 3 cysts per kidney by sonography or at least 5 cysts by CT or MRI with family history of ADPKD or 2) at least 10 cysts per kidney by any radiologic method and exclusion of other cystic kidney diseases if without family history; - Screening eGFR (average of Screen A and Screen B eGFR values) ≥ 30 to≤ 90 mL/min/1.73 m2 (18 to 55 years) or ≥ 30 to ≤ 44 mL/min/1.73 m2 (56 to 70 years): 1) Patients with either screening eGFR ≥ 60 to ≤ 90 mL/min/1.73 m2 or age 56 to 70 years, must have evidence of ADPKD progression (i.e., eGFR decline of ≥ 2.0 mL/min/1.73 m2 per year, based on historical eGFR data and medical monitor discretion); 2)The two eGFR values collected at Screen A and Screen B visits used to determine eligibility must have a percent difference ≤ 25%; - Albumin to creatinine ratio (ACR) ≤ 2500 mg/g at Screen B visit; - Systolic blood pressure ≤ 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure ≤ 90 mmHg at Screen A visit after a period of rest.
- History of administration of polycystic kidney disease-modifying agents (somatostatin analogues) within 3 months prior to the Screen A visit; - B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) level > 200 pg/mL at Screen A visit; - Uncontrolled diabetes (HbA1c > 11.0%) at Screen A visit; - Serum albumin < 3 g/dL at Screen A visit; - History of intracranial aneurysms; - Kidney or any other solid organ transplant recipient or a planned transplant during the study; - Acute dialysis or acute kidney injury within 12 weeks prior to Screen A visit or during Screening; - History of clinically significant left-sided heart disease and/or clinically significant cardiac disease; - Systolic BP < 90 mm Hg at Screen A visit after a period of rest; - BMI < 18.5 kg/m2 at the Screen A visit; - History of malignancy within 5 years prior to Screen A visit, with the exception of localized skin or cervical carcinomas; - Systemic immunosuppression for more than 2 weeks, cumulatively, within the 12 weeks prior to randomization or anticipated need for immunosuppression during the study; - Untreated or uncontrolled active bacterial, fungal, or viral infection; - Participation in other interventional clinical studies within 30 days prior to Day 1; - Unwilling to practice acceptable methods of birth control (both males who have partners of child-bearing potential and females of childbearing potential) during Screening, while taking study drug, and for at least 30 days after the last dose of study drug is ingested; - Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding; - Concomitant use of tolvaptan is excluded. Patients previously treated with tolvaptan must have discontinued drug for at least 3 months prior to Screen A visit

Maximum bardoxolone methyl dose of 20 mg
|Patients randomized to receive bardoxolone methyl with a baseline ACR less than or equal to 300 mg/g will be titrated to a maximum dose of 20 mg. Patients will begin once-daily dosing with bardoxolone methyl capsules at 5 mg and will dose escalate to 10 mg at Week 2 and 20 mg at Week 4. Patients will continue to receive study drug through Week 100, and will not receive study drug during a 12-week off-treatment period between Weeks 100 and 112.||
Maximum bardoxolone methyl dose 30 mg
|Patients randomized to receive bardoxolone methyl with a baseline ACR greater than 300 mg/g will be titrated to a maximum dose of 30 mg. Patients will begin once-daily dosing with bardoxolone methyl capsules at 5 mg and will dose escalate to 10 mg at Week 2, 20 mg at Week 4 and 30 mg at Week 6. Patients will continue to receive study drug through Week 100, and will not receive study drug during a 12-week off-treatment period between Weeks 100 and 112.||
|Patients randomized to placebo will remain on placebo capsules throughout the study, undergoing sham titration. Patients will continue to receive placebo capsules through Week 100, and will not receive capsules during a 12-week off-treatment period between Weeks 100 and 112.||

This international, multi-center, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase 3 trial will study the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of bardoxolone methyl in qualified patients with ADPKD. Patients will be randomized 1:1 to either bardoxolone methyl or placebo. Patients receiving bardoxolone methyl will start with once-daily dosing at 5 mg and will dose-escalate to 10 mg at Week 2, to 20 mg at Week 4, and then to 30 mg at Week 6 (only if baseline ACR >300 mg/g) unless contraindicated clinically and approved by the medical monitor. Dose de-escalation is permitted during the study if indicated clinically, and subsequent dose re-escalation is also permitted to meet the dosing objective of the highest tolerated dose. All patients in the study will follow the same visit and assessment schedule. Patients will continue to receive study drug or placebo through Week 100 and will not receive study drug or placebo during a 12-week off-treatment period between Weeks 100 and 112.
