Mucopolysaccharidosis clinical trials at UCLA
2 in progress, 1 open to eligible people
open to eligible males ages up to 6 years
The main aim of this study is to evaluate the ability of a prophylactic immune tolerizing regimen (ITR) to prevent or reduce the development of high titer anti-idursulfase antibodies in treatment-naïve participants with Hunter syndrome. In this open label, single arm study, all participants will receive ELAPRASE treatment and a prophylactic ITR. Participants will be treated with ELAPRASE for up to 104 weeks. The prophylactic ITR will start 1 day prior to the start of ELAPRASE. The prophylactic ITR will consist of a 5-week cycle of: Rituximab (intravenously [IV], weekly for 4 weeks); Methotrexate (oral, 3 times per week for 5 weeks) and intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) (IV, every 4 weeks of the cycle). Following the completion of 1 cycle, an assessment will be made at Month 6, 12, and 18 regarding the need for administering another 5-week cycle of the ITR. Participants will be in the study for approximately 112 weeks (including 6 weeks for screening, up to 104 weeks for treatment, and 2 weeks for follow-up).
