Efficacy Safety and Pharmacokinetics of Sugammadex (MK-8616) for Reversal of Neuromuscular Blockade in Pediatric Participants Aged Birth to <2 Years (MK-8616-169)


Brief description of study

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics (PK) of sugammadex (MK-8616) for reversal of both moderate and deep neuromuscular blockade (NMB) in pediatric participants aged birth to <2 years. The primary hypothesis of this study is that sugammadex is superior to neostigmine in reversing moderate NMB as measured by time to neuromuscular recovery.

Detailed Study Description

This trial will be conducted in two parts: Part A and Part B. In Part A, PK sampling will be conducted to identify the pediatric dose providing sugammadex exposure comparable to the next oldest age cohort. For Part B participants, the efficacy of sugammadex (i.e. neuromuscular recovery / time to extubation) will be assessed. Further, safety analyses will be conducted in both Parts A and B. Following completion of Part A, an interim analysis (IA) of the PK and safety data will be performed. Once the appropriate doses are confirmed and safety data is assessed for the 2 doses of sugammadex, then Part B will commence.
