Mino-Lok® Phase III, FDA News.
– Independent Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) to review Mino-Lok® safety, superiority, and futility data at upcoming meeting scheduled for June 29, 2021-
According to the Mino-Lok ® Phase 3 study protocol, the DMC is responsible for conducting interim analyses when 40%, 50% and 65% of the total number of anticipated events have been observed. The first two interim analyses were conducted by the DMC in 2019 and 2020, respectively. The next interim analysis meeting of the DMC will be held on June 29, 2021. At that time, the DMC will review unblinded study data and subsequently provide written recommendations to Citius within five business days.
The Mino-Lok ® Phase 3 pivotal superiority trial is a multi-center, randomized, open-label, blinded study to determine the efficacy and safety of Mino-Lok ® (MLT), a novel antibiotic lock therapy that combines minocycline with edetate disodium. The primary endpoint for this study is the time (in days following randomization) to a catheter failure event between randomization and TOC (Week 6) in the Intent-to-Treat (ITT) Population.
Approximately 144 subjects diagnosed with CRBSI/CLABSI and who meet all necessary criteria for the study are randomized in a 1:1 ratio to receive either Mino-Lok ® therapy or standard of care antibiotic lock therapy. To date, the Company has achieved more than 80% of the expected enrollment.
