Omeros Corporation is sponsoring the ARTEMIS-IGAN clinical trial, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, Phase 3 study of the safety and efficacy of narsoplimab in patients with immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy.
The purpose of this clinical trial is to see if the investigational drug narsoplimab is safe in people with IgA nephropathy and can help treat IgA nephropathy.
- The primary outcome measure is the change in urine protein excretion at 36 weeks.
- This clinical trial is being conducted in patients aged 18 years and older who have a diagnosis of IgA nephropathy and meet other eligibility criteria.
- After screening and evaluation, those taking part will receive either narsoplimab or placebo for 12 weeks.
- Those who do not respond will be considered for an additional six week of treatment.
Key Exclusion Criteria
- Treatment with immunosuppressants (e.g. azathioprine, cyclophosphamide), cytotoxic drugs, or eculizumab within 24 weeks prior to screening
