COVID-19 studies are our top priority. For all other trials, there is a 4-week delay in processing a trial submitted/resubmitted to the ANZCTR and additional delays for updates of registered trials. We appreciate your patience.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been endorsed by the ANZCTR. Before participating in a study, talk to your health care provider and refer to this information for consumers

Study type
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The study drug is STC3141. The Investigator is responsible for the education of study staff as to the correct administration of the study drug. Once the study drug has been assigned to a subject it must not be reassigned to another subject. The study drug will be administered as a continuous IV infusion for up to 72 hours and shall be given as 3 x 100mLvolume sequentially over 24 hours via a dedicated infusion line. Each 100mL of study drug will be prepared daily in a bag, prior to use. An infusion pump set to a rate of 4.0 mL/hr will be used to administer the study drug.
Four target steady state plasma concentrations (Css) are planned: 5µg/ml, 10µg/ml, 20 µg/mL and 25 µg/mL. (This is a pharmacokinetic guided design, so the infusion rate of each patients can be varied, which will be calculated based on their CrCL. This is a dose ascending study, with sequential cohorts only commencing upon satisfactory completion of the previous cohort.
A subject may remain in the study but discontinue the infusion, at any time during treatment. Reason may include:
• Protocol deviations or subject non compliance (must be specified on the appropriate eCRF)
• Serious or severe AEs
• Administrative decision by the Investigator or the Sponsor
• Death
• The subject is discharged from ICU
• The subject requires a therapeutic heparin infusion to be commenced
• The condition of the subject deteriorates to the point that active treatment is withdrawn
• It is not in the subject’s best interests for the infusion to continue at the Investigators’ discretion
• Withdrawal of consent by subject or their legal representatives

Blood samples for PK analysis will be collected within 2 hours prior to the start of the IP infusion, and at 12, 24 and 48 hours (±30 minutes) from the start of infusion, within 10 minutes before the EOI and 1(±2 minutes), 6 and 12 (±10 minutes), 24, 48, 72 and 120 hours (±30 minutes) post infusion.
Secondary outcome [2] 383777 0
Urine PK parameters including Ae0-t, fe and CLr.
Timepoint [2] 383777 0
All urine excreted by each subject will be collected for urine PK analysis, pooled, and the volume measured at the following intervals: a spot sample within 2 hours prior to the start of the IP infusion, and at 0-12, 12-24, 24-48, 48-72, 72-96, 96-120, and 120-144 hours from the start of infusion. At the end of each collection interval, record the total volume of sample pooled. Promptly mix pooled urine thoroughly and use a disposable plastic pipette to transfer at least 1 mL of sample into two 1.8 mL cryotubes (one A aliquot, one B aliquot).

Brief summary
Septic patients often present renal dysfunction,, while it is important to figure it out the safety coverage and dose adjustment for these patients. This is a dose-adjusted, open-label, multi-centre study to determine the safety, tolerability and PK of STC3141 administered as a continuous IV infusion of up to 72 hours in subjects with sepsis and normal or compromised renal function in an ICU, where the rate of infusion is adjusted to account for calculated creatinine clearance. Four target steady state plasma concentrations (Css) are planned: 5µg/ml, 10µg/ml, 20 µg/mL and 25 µg/mL. Up to a total of 26 subjects will be enrolled into four (4) cohorts in the study, but numbers will depend on dose escalation/expansion decisions.
