Brief Summary:
To evaluate the efficacy and safety of patisiran in patients with wtATTR amyloidosis and symptomatic polyneuropathy by evaluating the effect on neurologic impairment and quality of life.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Polyneuropathies Wild Type ATTR Amyloidosis Wild-Type Transthyretin-Related (ATTR)Amyloidosis Wild-Type Transthyretin Cardiac Amyloidosis Transthyretin Amyloidosis Drug: patisiran Early Phase 1

Detailed Description:
The study will consist of a baseline screening period and a 24-month treatment period. Eligible patient will receive patisiran administered as an IV infusion once every 21 days for a 24-month period. During the 24-month treatment period study patients will undergo assessments for efficacy and/or safety as outlined in the schedule of assessments with key efficacy assessments being performed prior to the first dose and proceeding as outlined in the schedule of assessments.

Arm Intervention/treatment
open label
single open arm label
Drug: patisiran

Patients will receive 0.3 mg/kg patisiran once every 21 days administered as an IV infusion over 70 minutes (approximately 1 mL/minute for the first 15 minutes followed by approximately 3 mL/minute for the remainder of the infusion) by a controlled infusion device.

All patients in this study will be premedicated prior to dosing with patisiran. Study drug supplied for this study must not be used for any purpose other than the present study and must not be administered to any person not enrolled in the study.

The first dose of study drug (week 1) will be administered under the supervision of site personnel. After the first dose of patisiran, patients should return to the site for patisiran dosing once every 21 days or receive the patisiran infusions at a local infusion center by a healthcare professional trained on the Protocol, administration of premedication, and patisiran infusion. Patient must receive a dose of interventional drug within the dosing window (±3 days).

Other Name: ONPATTRO

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Neurological Impairment Score [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    to assess the severity of functional impairment of motor and sensory nerves.NIS is a measure of motor strength, comprised of cranial nerve and both upper and lower limb motor assessments. The minimum and maximum values are 0 and 192, respectively. A higher score indicates a worse outcome.

  2. Norfolk QOL-DN [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    Change in Norfolk Quality of Life Questionnaire (Norfolk QOL-DN).The change from baseline in Norfolk QoL-DN at 24 months. The Norfolk QoL-DN questionnaire is a standardized 35-item patient-reported outcomes measure of diabetic neuropathy - small fiber, large fiber, and autonomic nerve function. The minimum and maximum values are -4 and 136, respectively. A higher score indicates a worse outcome.

  3. COMPASS 31score [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    Composite Autonomic Symptom Score (COMPASS) 31a self-assessment instrument for patient reported autonomic symptoms such as dizziness, constipation, diarrhea, nausea/vomiting, and incontinence. The minimum and maximum values are 0 and 100, respectively. A higher score indicates a worse outcome

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. PND Polyneuropathy disability (PND) Score [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    To compare and identify changes. Stage 0: no impairment Stage I: sensory disturbances but preserved walking capability Stage II: impaired walking capability but ability to walk without a stick or crutches Stage III a: walking only with the help of one stick or crutch Stage III b: walking with the help of two sticks or crutches. V: confined to wheelchair or bedridden A higher score indicates a worse outcome.

  2. Karnofsky, performance status score [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    Karnofsky performance score is 11 level score which ranges between 0 (death) to 100 (no evidence of disease). Higher score means higher ability to perform daily tasks.

  3. EuroQOL [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    EuroQOL,- A measurement tool that assesses generic quality of life in mobility, self-care, usual activities, pain/discomfort, anxiety/depression The minimum and maximum values are 0 and 100, respectively. A higher score indicates a worse outcome.

  4. EMG -Electromyography [ Time Frame: baseline to 24 months ]
    (EMG) is a diagnostic test that measures how the muscles and nerves work to evaluate peripheral Neuropathies pattern and progression

  5. Tilt Table Test [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Evaluate and compare the response of blood pressure and heart rate changes in posture and position.

  6. Optional exploratory nerve and muscle biopsy [ Time Frame: during screening visit ( 28 day window) ]
    to identify amyloid deposits in skeletal muscle and peripheral nerve

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Cardiac MRI [ Time Frame: start of study, and study end at 2 years ]
    to identify cardiac abnormalities or changes and comparison

  2. Echo with strain [ Time Frame: start of study, and study end at 2 years ]
    to identify cardiac abnormalities or changes and comparison

  3. PYP - mTc99-PYP [ Time Frame: start of study, and study end at 2 years ]
    for cardiac amyloidosis imaging. - to identify cardiac function changes and comparison

  4. NT Pro BNP blood draw [ Time Frame: start of study, and study end at 2 years ]
    serum biomarker to evaluate heart failure severity, ( pg/ml)

  5. NFL blood draw [ Time Frame: at start, month 1,2,3,6 and every 6 months after until study end at two years ]
    Serum Neurofilament Light Chain level in patients with evolving disease, ( pg/mL)
