Overview

This trial is active, not recruiting.

Conditions coronary heart disease (chd), chd risk-equivalent disease
Treatments anacetrapib, comparator: placebo
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
Start date March 2008
End date July 2009
Trial size 1500 participants
Trial identifier NCT00685776, 0859-019, 2007_648

Summary

This study will evaluate the efficacy of anacetrapib (100 mg) for 24 weeks relative to placebo, on plasma concentrations of Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol and assess the safety and tolerability of anacetrapib (100 mg) in participants with CHD/CHD risk-equivalent disease on stable dose regimen of statin with or without other lipid-modifying therapy. The two year extension to this study will further evaluate the long-term safety profile and efficacy of anacetrapib in CHD/CHD-risk equivalent patients who are on ongoing therapy with a statin with or without other lipid-modifying therapy.

Inclusion Criteria: - Base Study: - Patient has Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) or CHD Risk-Equivalent Disease and is treated with a statin, with well controlled LDL-C - Extension Study: - Patient has completed the base study including the reversibility period (i.e. 12 or to up to 24 weeks). - Patient is on statin therapy ± lipid-modifying therapy since the end of the base study and planning to continue taking a statin throughout the study Exclusion Criteria: - History of heart failure, arrhythmias, heart attack, unstable angina, or stroke within 3 months prior to screening, uncontrolled blood pressure, uncontrolled high cholesterol or liver disease. - History of mental instability, drug/alcohol abuse within the past 5 years - Pregnant or breast-feeding - History of cancer within the last 5 years - HIV positive - Donated blood products within 8 weeks - Currently participating or have participated in a study with an investigational compound within the last 30 days

Additional Information

Official title A 76-Week, Worldwide, Multicenter, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Tolerability and Efficacy of Anacetrapib When Added to Ongoing Therapy With a Statin in Patients With Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) or CHD Risk-Equivalent Disease
Description The 76 week treatment period is followed by a 12 week reversibility phase which can be extended by up to another 12 weeks in order to allow participants who have completed their week 88 visit to continue in the study until the Extension study is ready to be implemented. In the optional extension, participants will be assigned to the same treatment arm to which they were assigned in the base study. The total duration of the extension study will be up to 116 weeks; which will include a 2 year treatment period, followed by a 12 week reversal phase. A post-extension study follow-up phone call will be completed 12 weeks after discontinuation or completion of study treatment. Participants previously treated with anacetrapib or placebo will be invited in a 4:1 ratio in an optional extended reversal phase. The total duration of the extended reversal phase will be 1 year. Participants previously treated with anacetrapib in the DEFINE study will be followed periodically for up to 4 years to determine plasma levels of anacetrapib. Participants will also be invited to participate in a sub-study consisting of one clinic visit to measure anacetrapib levels in the plasma and the subcutaneous adipose tissue. ACRONYM: DEFINE= Determining the EFficacy and Tolerability of Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) INhibition with AnacEtrapib
