Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.
|Eligible Ages||18 Years - 80 Years|
Inclusion Criteria:1. Provide written informed consent. 2. Male or female aged ≥18 and ≤80 years at the time of signing the informed consent for entry. 3. Baseline endoscopic biopsy with ≥30 eosinophils/hpf in 5 hpf in the stomach and/or ≥30 eosinophils/hpf in 3 hpf in the duodenum, as determined by central histology assessment of biopsies collected during the screening EGD. 4. Completion of at least 4 daily PRO questionnaires per week for a minimum of 3 weeks during screening. 5. Patients with inadequate or loss of response to, or who were intolerant to standard therapies for EG/EoD symptoms, which could include PPI, antihistamines, systemic or topical corticosteroids, and/or diet, among others. 6. If patient is on pre-existing dietary restrictions, willingness to maintain dietary restrictions throughout the study. 7. Willing and able to comply with all study procedures and visit schedule including follow-up visits. 8. Female patients must be either post-menopausal for at least 1 year with FSH level >30 mIU/mL at screening or surgically sterile (tubal ligation, hysterectomy, or bilateral oophorectomy) for at least 3 months, or if of childbearing potential, have a negative pregnancy test and agree to use dual methods of contraception, or abstain from sexual activity from screening until the end of the study, or for 120 days following the last dose of study drug, whichever is longer. Male patients with female partners of childbearing potential must agree to use a highly effective method of contraception from screening until the end of the study or for 120 days following the last dose of study drug, whichever is longer. All fertile men with female partners of childbearing potential should be instructed to contact the Investigator immediately if they suspect their partner might be pregnant (e.g., missed or later menstrual period) at any time during study participation. Key
Exclusion Criteria:1. Use of systemic or topical corticosteroids exceeding the equivalent of 10 mg/day of prednisone within 4 weeks prior to the screening visit. 2. Change in the dose of corticosteroids (systemic or topical), PPI, leukotrienes, or diet therapy within 4 weeks prior to the screening visit. 3. Treatment with any immunosuppressive or immunomodulatory drugs that may interfere with the study within 12 weeks prior to the screening visit. 4. Prior exposure to AK002 or known hypersensitivity to any constituent of the study drug. 5. Active Helicobacter pylori infection, unless treated and confirmed to be negative prior to randomization and symptoms remain consistent. 6. History of inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, achalasia, or esophageal surgery. 7. History of bleeding disorders and/or esophageal varices. 8. Other causes of gastric and/or duodenal eosinophilia or eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis (EGPA). 9. Confirmed diagnosis of Hypereosinophilic Syndrome (HES). 10. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to become pregnant while participating in the study. 11. Presence of an abnormal laboratory value considered to be clinically significant by the Investigator. 12. Any disease, condition (medical or surgical), or cardiac abnormality, which, in the opinion of the Investigator, would place the patient at increased risk. 13. History of malignancy, except carcinoma in situ, early stage prostate cancer, or non-melanoma skin cancers. However, cancers that have been in remission for more than 5 years and are considered cured, can be enrolled (with the exception of breast cancer). 14. Treatment for a clinically significant helminthic parasitic infection within 6 months of screening. 15. Positive Ova and Parasite (O&P) test and/or seropositive for Strongyloides stercoralis. 16. Vaccination with live attenuated vaccines within 30 days prior to initiation of treatment in the study, during the treatment period, or vaccination expected within 5 half-lives (4 months) of study drug administration. 17. Seropositive for HIV or hepatitis at screening, except for vaccinated patients or patients with past but resolved hepatitis, at screening. 18. Participation in a concurrent interventional study with the last intervention occurring within 30 days prior to study drug administration (or 90 days or 5 half-lives, whichever is longer, for biologic products). 19. Known history of alcohol, drug, or other substance abuse or dependence, considered by the Investigator to be ongoing and clinically significant. 20. Any other reason that in the opinion of the Investigator or the Medical Monitor makes the patient unsuitable for enrollment.
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
