Project Title:

Efficacy and Safety of LNP023 Compared With Rituximab in Subjects With Idiopathic Membranous Nephropathy

Project Type:

Clinical Trial, Enrolment ongoing

Disease group(s):

Immune glomerulopathies

Project Summary:

This is a randomized, open-label, two arm, parallel group, proof-of-concept, non-confirmatory study evaluating the efficacy and safety of LNP023 compared with rituximab in subjects with membranous nephropathy (MN) who are at high risk of disease progression defined on the basis of antibody anti-PLA2R titre and proteinuria. The screening period will last up to 12 weeks and the whole study will last up to 65 weeks. Approximately 52 subjects will be randomized to one of the two arms. Treatment with LNP023 or rituximab is open label. LNP023 arm have a 4-week period of initial dose treatment, followed by a 20-week period of full dose treatment to evaluate the effect of the different LNP023 doses on complement biomarkers. Efficacy will be evaluated at the end of the 24-week treatment period. The randomization ratio is 1:1; LNP023 : rituximab.
