Study information

Scientific title

A phase II, randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled, parallel group, dose-finding clinical trial to investigate the efficacy and safety of 10 and 20 mg/day aerosolised liposomal cyclosporin A (L-CsA) versus placebo in the treatment of bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) in allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients



Study hypothesis

To established an investigational medicinal product (IMP) dosage with the most favourable risk-benefit ratio for the prevention of bronchiolitis obliterans (BO) in allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patients.

Bronchiolitis obliterans


This trial was stopped as of 31/03/2010.

Subjects will be randomised (1:1:1) to one of three treatment arms:
1. 1 x 10 mg/day L-CsA and 1 x placebo/day
2. 2 x 10 mg/day L-CsA
3. 2 x placebo

Subjects will be stratified according to several baseline risk factors, e.g. myeloablative versus non-myeloablative regimen. Treatment duration will be 12 weeks with a 36 week follow-up period. After successful completion of the study, the patient may enter the follow-up clinical trial (ref: 12011.203) after fulfilling in/exclusion criteria.

Phase II

Drug names

Liposomal cyclosporin A (L-CsA)

Primary outcome measure

To establish an IMP dosage with the most favourable risk-benefit ratio for the prevention of BO in HSCT patients.

Secondary outcome measures

1. To compare efficacy and safety data from two different L-CsA doses versus placebo
2. To evaluate investigational medicinal product (IMP) pharmacokinetic (PK) data in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and in whole blood samples
