Condition short bowel syndrome
Treatment teduglutide
Phase phase 3
Sponsor Shire
Start date December 2014
End date December 2017
Trial size 11 participants
Trial identifier NCT02340819, TED-C14-004


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an investigational treatment (teduglutide) in Japanese patients with PN-dependent SBS. This study will also look at how teduglutide moves through the body (pharmacokinetics).

Eligibility Criteria

Male or female participants at least 16 years old.

Inclusion Criteria

  • Men and women, 16 years of age or older at the time of signing the ICF
  • Subjects with SBS as a result of major intestinal resection (eg, due to injury, volvulus, vascular disease, cancer, Crohn's disease) that resulted in at least 12 continuous months of PN/I.V. dependency prior to signature of ICF
  • For subjects with a history of Crohn's disease, the subject should be in clinical remission for at least 12 weeks prior to dosing as demonstrated by clinical assessment, which may include procedure-based evidence of remission.
  • PN/I.V. requirement of at least 3 times per week during the week before screening and during the 2 weeks prior to baseline to meet caloric, fluid or electrolyte needs
  • Stable PN/I.V. requirement for at least 4 consecutive weeks immediately prior to the start of teduglutide treatment,

Exclusion Criteria

  • Participation in a clinical study using an experimental drug within 30 days or an experimental antibody treatment within 3 months prior to signing the ICF, or concurrent participation in any clinical study using an experimental drug that would affect the safety of teduglutide
  • Previous use of native GLP-2 or human growth hormone within 6 months prior to screening
  • Previous use of intravenous glutamine, octreotide, GLP-1 analog, or dipeptidyl peptidase-IV inhibitors within 30 days prior to screening
  • Previous use of teduglutide
  • Serial transverse enteroplasty or any other bowel lengthening procedure performed within the past 3 months
  • Subjects with active Crohn's disease or subjects who require biological therapy (eg, anti-tumor necrosis factor or natalizumab) that had been introduced or changed during the 6 months prior to screening
  • Subjects with inflammatory bowel disease who require chronic systemic immunosuppressant therapy that was introduced or changed during the last 3 months
  • Unstable absorption due to cystic fibrosis, untreated Hirschsprung's disease or known DNA abnormalities (ie, Familial Adenomatous Polyposis, Fanconi syndrome)
  • Radiographic or manometric evidence of pseudo-obstruction or severe known dysmotility syndrome
  • Evidence of clinically significant obstruction on upper GI series with small bowel follow-through done within 6 months prior to screening
  • Major GI surgical intervention within 3 months prior to screening (insertion of feeding tube or endoscopic procedure is allowed)
  • Unstable cardiac disease, congenital heart disease or cyanotic disease, with the exception of subjects who had undergone ventricular or atrial septal defect repair
  • Currently diagnosed with cancer or a history of any cancer except basal cell carcinoma within 5 years
  • Active clinically significant pancreatic or biliary disease
  • More than 4 SBS-related or PN-related hospital admissions (eg, catheter sepsis, bowel obstruction, severe water-electrolyte disturbances) within 12 months prior to screening visit
  • Hospital admission, other than scheduled, within 30 days prior to screening
  • Signs of severe hepatic impairment at time of stabilization.
  • Signs of disturbed renal function at time of stabilization
  • Clinical signs of abnormal pancreatic condition, with abnormal laboratory results at time of stabilization
  • Pregnant or lactating women
  • Female subjects who are not surgically sterile or postmenopausal (defined as 55 years or older and/or at least 2 years had elapsed since her last menses) or who are not using medically acceptable methods of birth control during and for 30 days after the treatment period
  • Not capable of understanding or not willing to adhere to the study visit schedule and other protocol requirements
  • Evidence of untreated intestinal obstruction or clinically significant active stenosis
  • Any condition or circumstance that in the investigator's opinion put the subject at any undue risk, prevented completion of the study, or interfered with analysis of the study results
