Clinical Trial Summary

This interventional Phase II, single-arm, multicenter, open-label study will investigate the efficacy and safety of a combination regimen of 6 months eltrombopag and cyclosporine treatment in adult patients with severe aplastic anemia (SAA) as first line therapy, with an additional 18 months follow-up for cyclosporine tapering and duration of response until relapse or 24 months whichever is earlier (responders only who do not relapse prior to 6 months). The usage of eltrombopag and cyclosporine combines two therapies with different modes of action. Cyclosporine acts as an immunosuppressant and eltrombopag acts as a stimulator of bone marrow progenitor cells. Given that SAA is currently viewed as having an autoimmune pathogenesis resulting in bone marrow progenitor cell destruction, the combination of eltrombopag and cyclosporine is attractive. Preliminary experience with their combined use appears favorable, with no untoward toxicity observed to date.
