Brief Summary:
This is a 24-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled induction study of APT-1011 in adults (≥18 years old) with eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) followed by a single-arm, open-label extension. This study will evaluate the efficacy and safety of APT-1011 3 mg administered HS (hora somni, at bedtime) for the induction of response to treatment (symptomatic and histologic) over 24 weeks. The open-label extension will continue to evaluate long-term safety in subjects who consent to continue on open-label treatment with APT-1011.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Eosinophilic Esophagitis Drug: APT-1011 Drug: Placebo oral tablet Procedure: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy Phase 3

Expanded Access : An investigational treatment associated with this study is available outside the clinical trial.   More info ...

Detailed Description:

The efficacy and safety of APT-1011 3 mg administered at bedtime will be evaluated for the induction of response (histologic and symptomatic) after 24 weeks of treatment. After completing 24 weeks of double-blind study treatment, subjects may consent to participate in the open-label extension, otherwise they will complete study drug treatment and enter a 2-week off treatment safety follow-up.

The duration of the double-blind portion of the study, screening through follow-up visit for subjects completing study drug at Week 24, will be up to 32 weeks long, i.e., 6-week screening period (the includes a 4-week run-in phase) followed by 24 weeks induction phase and 2 weeks off-treatment follow-up. For subjects consenting to participate in the open-label extension, the duration of the study will be determined by the Sponsor.

  7. Percentage of Responders (Strictures and ≥Grade 2 rings) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    To compare the percentage of responders, defined as no longer having strictures and/or ≥Grade 2 rings which were present at baseline, at Week 24

  8. Percentage of Responders (Strictures) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    To compare the percentage of responders, defined as no longer having strictures which were present at baseline, at Week 24

  9. Percentage of Responders (≥Grade 2 rings) [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    To compare the percentage of responders, defined as no longer having ≥Grade 2 rings which were present at baseline, at Week 24

  10. Mean Change in EREFs [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    To compare endoscopic appearance evaluated by the mean change from baseline to Week 24 in Eosinophilic Esophagitis Endoscopic Reference Score (EREFs)

  11. Time to First Complete Symptom Response [ Time Frame: Week 24 ]
    Time to first complete symptom response (defined as zero dysphagia episodes in a 14-consecutive-day period)
