Dupilumab and Milk OIT for the Treatment of Cow's Milk Allergy

Not Recruiting

Trial ID: NCT04148352


This is a phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, 2 arm study in approximately 40 subjects aged 4 to 50 years, inclusive, who are allergic to cow's milk. The primary objective is to assess whether dupilumab as an adjunct to milk oral immunotherapy (OIT) compared to placebo improves the safety of milk OIT and rates of desensitization, defined as an increase in the proportion of subjects who pass a double-blind placebo-controlled food challenge (DBPCFC) to at least 2040 mg cumulative milk protein at week 18.

* Serum IgE to milk of \>4 kUA/L within the last 12 months and/or a SPT to milk ≥6 mm compared to a negative control
* Experience clinical reaction at or before 444 mg cumulative protein dose of cow's milk protein on Screening DBPCFC
* No clinical reaction observed during the placebo (oat) Screening DBPCFC
* Subjects with other known food allergies must agree to eliminate these other food items from their diet so as not to confound the safety and efficacy data from the study

* Body weight \<5 kg at the time of screening
* History of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE), other eosinophilic gastrointestinal disease, chronic, recurrent, or severe gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), symptoms of dysphagia (e.g., difficulty swallowing, food "getting stuck"), or recurrent gastrointestinal symptoms of undiagnosed etiology
* History of cardiovascular disease, including uncontrolled or inadequately controlled hypertension
* History of a mast cell disorder
* Established diagnosis of a primary immunodeficiency disorder
* Severe asthma or mild or moderate asthma if uncontrolled or difficult to control
